Super Ion Air Wipe

What Is The GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe?

EXAIR’s GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe provides a uniform 360° ionized airstream that is easy to clamp around a part for eliminating static electricity and contaminants. It is ideal for use on pipe, cable, extruded shapes, hose, wire and more. It maximizes ionized airflow while minimizing compressed air consumption.

The split design unlatches easily to fit around
the moving part – no threading required.

Why The GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe?

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.

How the GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe Works

Super Ion Air Wipe Funktion

The GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe incorporates a GEN4 Super Air Wipe and a split ionizing collar, energized by a power supply. Compressed air is ejected through the small ring nozzle of the GEN4 Super Air Wipe at high velocity (1). A conical 360° ring of air is created that induces high volumes of surrounding air (2). The airflow passes through the collar and is ionized by two emitter points (3). That high velocity, ionized airstream attaches itself to the surface of the material running through the GEN4 Super Ion Air Wipe (4), uniformly eliminating the static electricity and removing any contaminants from the surface.
