To blow excess liquid off the product and for drying Air Wipes are essential in the production of wire and cable.
Geo’s Air Wipes for bare wire applications provide a uniform 360° airstream which is generated by a helical insert, putting compressed air into rotation. The resulting airstream causes an enormous shear impulse on the interface between the profile surface and the water. It exceeds the interfacial energy of the adhering fluid. Both the shear impulse and the additional acceleration of the airstream by the injection effect leads to improved drying results; with low air consumption and high speed processing.
The stainless steel body of the air wipe is resistant to aggressive agents, unlike the usual plastic nozzles. The nozzle can be completely dismantled, which certainly is another advantage because worn or broken pieces can be replaced. These nozzles can easily be integrated in existing production processes or drying units because of their small dimensions and the ease of assembly.
For bare strip, flats and other profiles customized Air Wipes with rectangular inserts are available.
As the air wipe is adjusted to the diameter of the wet parts, GEO developed a whole range of drying nozzles. We deliver seven different designs with diameters from 4,0 to 19,0 mm. Information in writing (pdf documents) are at your disposal: Downloads
