EXAIR’s GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe provides a uniform 360° ionized airstream that is simple to clamp around a part for reducing static electricity and cleaning contaminants. It is great for use on pipe, cable, extruded shapes, hose, wire and much more. We offer the GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe in either 2” or 4” inner diameter, it is powered by compressed air and an external power supply. The GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe generates both positive and negative ions that are transmitted the emitter points located on the i.d. of the wipe. Since static charges can be either negative or positive it is easy to eliminate both states of charge due to the mixed polarity of ions being generated. The power supplies are available with either 2 or 4 outlets (can power up to 2 or 4 GEN4 Static Eliminators simultaneously) and are UL recognized, CE and RoHS compliant. The power supplies also have a selectable input voltage for either 115 or 230VAC.
Another great feature of the GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe is the split collar design that utilizes a clamp and hinge making it easy to clamp around the surface of the material moving through it eliminating the need for time consuming “threading”.
How does the Super Ion Air Wipe work? The Super Ion Air Wipe envelopes the part passing through it with a stream of compressed air to strip contaminants and bathes it with ions to diminish any static charge. The airflow follows the surface of the material passing through it and can be effective up to 15′ (4.6m) away from where the Super Ion Air Wipe is located. The optional pressure regulator allows for fine adjustments of the air volume and velocity and the optional shim set allows for large air volume and velocity adjustments.
If you would like to discuss reducing static and/or cleaning of continuous runs of materials, I would enjoy hearing from you…give me a call.
To begin with all EXAIR ASN’s are made from SS for durability and liquid compatibility. As its name implies it creates a flat fan pattern that exit’s the nozzle perpendicular to the air & liquid inlets as shown above. This unique design lends itself nicely to applications with space constraints. The AD1010SS is the ideal choice for coating the inside of enclosures or ductwork. It is compatible with liquids up to 300 centipoise and the air and liquid are mixed in the air cap. The AD1010SS is designed for pressure fed applications not requiring independent air and liquid control. What is meant by that statement is that if you vary either the air or liquid pressures you change the spray pattern and volume. See the chart below for clarification on pressures, volumes and spray patterns.
Next we will look at EXAIR model AT1010SS internal mix 360° hollow circular pattern ASN.
The AT1010SS internal mix 360° nozzle is designed for applications where the spray pattern must be oriented away from the nozzle in all directions. 360° nozzles are ideal where a smooth, even coating is needed on the ID of a pipe or similar ductwork. It is compatible with liquids up to 300 centipoise and the air and liquid are mixed in the air cap. The AT1010SS is designed for pressure fed applications not requiring independent air and liquid control. As above if you vary either the air or liquid pressures you change the spray pattern and volume. See the chart below for clarification on pressures, volumes and spray patterns. They also work great for operations where a mist over a broad area is needed, such as dust suppression, humidification and cooling. See the chart below for clarification on pressures, volumes and spray patterns.
