Case Studies
  
 

Sonic Air introduced our first generation of quench/cooling water high velocity air wipe dryers powered by Sonic blower in 1995. As the wire & cable extruder rates and linear speeds have increased in more than 4X during the past 20 years, with other unsupported low tension rubber extrusions also becoming more complex, Sonic has developed newer, smaller and more efficient air wipe drying systems right along with those industry production rate advancements. The (4) Sonic air wipe models currently offered, each type accepts a wide range of product diameters or extrusion shapes through each without changing air wipe inserts or any other adjustments and still delivers a dry customer product each time. With moisture containment enclosures and sound attenuation available to <85 dbA (<80 dbA quoted upon request), a dry and quiet operating standard is achieved.

The Sonic Standard Air Wipe Dryer - 1/4" to 4"(6.35mm to 101.6mm) Dia - 200 to 1,000 FPM (61-300 m/min)

Sonic offers several variations of this rigid extrusion or jacketed cable dryer for 1/4" to 4" (6 to 101mm) diameters at 200 to 1,000 FPM (61 to 300 m/min). These air wipe modules come in 12"(304.8mm) long increments with polymer enclosures to capture blow off moisture and sound reduction. The easy access clam-shell enclosure with manual latching eliminates close clearance line threading and the auto-pneumatic option opens the cover to allow knots to pass without binding or jamming. Internal wire clearance ranges from 2 to 8 times the extrusion diameter. Sonic blower models range from 3 Hp to 20Hp (2.2 to 15 kW). The complete dryer module is all prepackaged with the blower connections and adjustable height mounting stand ready to assemble in minutes.

The Sonic High Speed Wire Dryers - 40 to 00 AWG Wire - 1,000 to 10,000 FPM (300-3,000 m/min)

Replace compressed air wipes for fiber optic and metallic cable from 40 AWG through 00 AWG (average wire gage) with extruder speeds of 1,000 to 10,000 linear feet per minute (300 to 3,000 m/min). The dryer module is enclosed in a 42" (1,067mm) long polypropylene moisture and sound reduction enclosure (as low as 80 dbA) available with either manual or pneumatically operated clam-shell split housing design for unobstructed access. Several split ceramic eye guides are located along the wire travel center line for easy threading. Sonic blower model and motor power range from 15Hp to 25Hp (11-18.5kW). The complete dryer module is all prepackaged with the blower connections and adjustable height mounting stand ready to assemble in minutes.

Sonic High Speed Wire Dryer 

Sonic Extruded Shape Air Wipe - 1/4" to 2"(6.35mm to 50.8mm) Dia - 10 to 200 FPM (3-60 m/min)

This "air ring" design is for any continuously water cooled non-wire core products which are unsupported, have low tension and are without internal stiffening components within the extrusion. This airwipe provides a 2-3/4" (69.85mm)ID adjustable 360° air slot to deliver lower velocity air at more uniform flow to dry while preventing turbulence to soft extruded shapes. Sonic blowers range from 3hp to 15hp (2.2 to 11kW).

Sonic Extruded Shape Air Wipe

Sonic Tube & Pipe Drying Air Octagon - 6" to 48"(152.4mm to 1,219.20mm) Dia - 10 to 100 FPM (3-30 m/min)

This "air ring" design is for any continuously water plastic and metal tube and pipe manufacturers have been supplied with a variety of custom designed Sonic Air Octagon for these large diameters after cooling, washing or hydrostatic pressure testing. Sonic develops these air rings to deliver 360° air wiping action powered by the Sonic blower needed to deliver the high impact air velocity needed prior to welding, ink coding, coating or painting. Sonic blowers for the octagon range from 15Hp to 50Hp (11kW to 37.5kW).

Sonic Octagon Air Wipe Dryer

Historically, compressed air blow off was the only design that worked and it was plentiful in most plants. Electrical cost were lower and no one knew how much energy was being consumed. Now that PLC's (programmable logic controllers) are monitoring every aspect of Wire & Cable lines, the source of downtime and production slowdowns are more easily identified. When printing, inspection/testing or packaging are adversely affected by moisture left on the surface, Sonic Air Wipe Systems can correct the problem and pay for themselves through the elimination of process cost inefficiencies. The ROI for Sonic (6 months for most installations) is among the shortest periods of any equipment purchases in a Wire & Cable facility.
