SPECIFICATIONS: Regular Air Wipe

The Regular Air Wipe is available in seven standard IN-STOCK throat diameters (I.D.) of 1/2" (13 mm), 1" (25 mm), 2" (51 mm), 3" (76 mm), 4" (102 mm), 5" (127 mm) and 6" (152 mm). Contact our factory for special diameters.

Materials of Construction:
The Regular Air Wipe is constructed of aluminum. All models use stainless steel shims, general purpose PVC air hose, brass fittings, and black oxide 1/4-20 screws.

Mounting:
There are multiple 1/4-20 tapped holes on the bottom of the Regular Air Wipe which can be used for mounting purposes. Rigid compressed air supply pipe can also support the Air Wipe!

Shims:
The Regular Air Wipe comes pre-installed with a .002" (.05 mm) Stainless Steel shim. Both force and flow can be increased by adding an additional shim to open the gap to .004" (.10 mm). The compressed airflow exhausts through a 'slit' which is set with the shim resting between the body and cap of the Regular Air Wipe.

Compressed Air Inlet(s):
The Regular Air Wipe has (2) 1/4" NPTF compressed air inlets; one on each half. A general purpose PVC hose is supplied to distribute the compressed air to each side of the Air Wipe. For special order sizes 9" (229 mm) and above, each half must be supplied with it's own compressed air to ensure a uniform airflow.

Air Supply Filtration:
It is imperative that clean compressed air is used. An automatic drain filter with a 5 micron filter element is strongly recommended.

Regulation:
A pressure regulator installed in-line with the compressed air supply will provide infinite control of air consumption, force and flow! Our Deluxe Kits include a regulator /w gauge that is properly sized for flow.
