Exair’s 3/8” Super Air Wipe has a split design that can be clamped around continuously moving material such as wire, cable, pipe, hose and extruded shapes.

Exair’s 3/8” 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 air wipe ejects a small amount of compressed air through a thin slotted nozzle that pulls in high volumes of surrounding room air. The airflow uniformly ejects from the 360 degrees of its inner diameter. Coupling brackets that hold each half of the air wipe together can be latched together or removed quickly and additional shims can be installed if more blowoff force is required. Air velocity can be varied with a pressure regulator and an on/off control provides precision blowoff.
