Exair’s 1/2-in. Super Air Wipe produces a 360-degree airstream that can blow off, dry, clean or cool the material passing through it. The split design can be clamped around continuously moving material such as wire, cable, pipe, hose and extruded shapes. The device ejects a small amount of compressed air through a thin slotted nozzle that pulls in high volumes of surrounding room air. Air consumption is 13.9 scfm at 80 psig, and the sound level is low at only 75 dBA. Offered in aluminum and stainless steel, it is available in diameters from 13 mm to 102 mm (1/2 in. to 4 in.). Applications include wiping wire, drying inks, paint and screen printing, cooling hot and extruded shapes, and blow-off of water, plating, coatings and dust.
