360° Air Wipe
Streamtek Air Wipes provide a uniform 360° airflow ideal for cooling, blowoff, cleaning, and drying of cable, wire, hose, extruded shapes, pipe and more. The open and shut 2-piece design allows for easy placement of products.
What types of Air Wipes do we carry”
The Regular Air Wipe is best suited for applications in non-corrosive environments where temperatures do not exceed 15°F (66°C). It is constructed using a regular air hose, aluminum body, stainless steel screws, and stainless steel shims.
Streamtek’s Hi-Temp Air Wipe resists corrosion and is ideal for high temperatures up to 800°F (427°C). It is constructed using stainless steel wire braided coupling hose, stainless steel body, stainless steel screws, and stainless steel shims.

Did you know? 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.

Air Wipe FAQs
Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions relating to our Aluminum Air Wipes. If you need additional help with your application and/or can’t find an answer to your question, please call our factory at 1-705-770-4455 or email an Application Engineer at email@example.com.
1. What is the recommended pressure that should be used with the Air Wipe?
Always try to use the lowest pressure that is possible for your application. Always use a pressure regulator to increase force/airflow to the point where your application problem is rectified. The maximum pressure of the Air Wipe is 250 PSIG.
2. Can I connect the cold end of a Vortex Tube to an Air Wipe?
No. This would cause an airflow restriction which would instantly produce back-pressure in excess of 5 PSIG! When this back-pressure is exceeded, performance of the Vortex Tube will be negatively impacted.
3. Why use the Air Wipe, instead of the compressed air pipe with holes drilled in it?
The compressed air is amplified with a 30:1 ratio using the surrounding air to produce its high volume airflow. This will provide enough airflow to dry, cool, and clean while paying a fraction of the cost it would be to that of using straight compressed air.
4. What is the angle of the airflow from the Air Wipe?
The product traveling through the Air Wipe is hit by the airflow at a 30° angle (60° included angle)
5. What are the materials of construction for the Air Wipe?
The STREAMTEK™ Air Wipe is available in Aluminum, and Type 303 Stainless Steel for high temperature and/or corrosive applications. Type 316 Stainless Air Wipes can be manufactured upon special request.
6. How can I mount the Air Wipe?
There are two (2) ways you can mount the STREAMTEK™ Air Wipe.
- Use ridged compressed air pipe to support unit.
- 1/4″-20 mounting holes on the bottom of the air wipe. The holes are 1/2″ depth thread, ideal for a bracket fabricated by the customer.
