The GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe provides total coverage of the part moving through it. The high volume, high velocity flow attaches itself to the surface and wipes it down with the static eliminating ions. The airflow stays attached to the surface and is effective for many feet away from where the Super Ion Air Wipe is mounted. An optional pressure regulator provides infinite control of the air volume and velocity. Increasing the pressure increases the forceful wiping action. Lower pressures provide excellent coverage with much lower force and velocity.
To this point, there has been no easy way to provide uniform coverage around a continuously moving part. It would have been too difficult to line up and feed continuously moving materials (such as wire, tubing or extrusions) through a solid ring. Arranging a series of ionizers around the surface would provide uneven airflow and prove to be costly. The split design of the GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe solves that problem by making it easy to clamp around the surface of the material moving through it, eliminating the need for threading or several ionizers.
The GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe is lightweight and easy to mount using the tapped holes on the back. It can also be held in place with rigid pipe. Coupling brackets that hold each half of the Super Ion Air Wipe together are provided which can be installed or removed quickly if required.
