The Super Air Wipe is available with throat diameters (I.D.) of 3/8″, 1/2″, 1″, 2″, 3″, 4″, 5″, 6″, 7″, 9″, and 11″ (9.5, 13, 25, 51, 76, 102, 127, 152, 178, 229, and 279mm). Special diameters are available.
Compressed Air Inlets: The Super Air Wipe has compressed air inlets on each half. Stainless steel wire braided hose is supplied with sizes up to 4″ (102mm) that couples the air supply of one half to the other. Sizes 9″ (229mm) and larger have two inlets on each half that must be supplied with compressed air to maintain uniform airflow.
Filtration: The use of clean air is essential. Kits include an automatic drain filter with a 5 micron filter element that is sized properly for flow.
Materials of Construction: The Super Air Wipe is constructed of aluminum or stainless steel. All models use stainless shims and screws. Stainless steel wire braided hose is included with sizes up to 4″ (102mm).
Temperature: Aluminum Super Air Wipes are rated for temperatures up to 400°F (204°C). Stainless steel models are rated for temperatures up to 800°F (427°C).
Mounting: The Super Air Wipe can be supported by the compressed air supply pipe. Tapped holes (1/4-20) on the bottom of the Super Air Wipe can also be used for mounting.
Regulation: A pressure regulator on the compressed air supply provides infinite control of flow, force and air consumption. Kits include a pressure regulator that is sized properly for flow.
Shim Sets: The Super Air Wipe has a .002″ (.05mm) gap setting. The compressed air exhausts through a gap which is set with a stainless steel shim positioned between the cap and body of the Super Air Wipe. Force and flow through the Super Air Wipe may be easily increased by adding shims to open the gap.
