Huestis Industrial

Products - Air Wipers

Drying wire and cable can be a tricky, expensive business.  Huestis Industrial Air Wipes use precision controlled air flow to save air, reduce noise and dramatically cut energy consumption.

Here are the basics of how an Air Wipe works:

  • Air is channeled through a manifold in the body and distributed to a ring of jets.
  • Jet orifices restrict air flow to provide efficient drying at the lowest possible air consumption.
  • Turbulence created by controlling air flow and direction removes water from the material surface.
  • A Venturi effect is also created within the air wipe, further increasing air flow.
  • Sizes are recommendations only.  Specific applications may require less or greater clearance for proper drying.
  • Custom openings up to 7" (177.8mm) in diameter.
