Do you think I should move the 2nd (exterior) air wipe inside of the annealer housing. As of now, the air wipe is about 30 feet away from the annealer.Hitting the wire with air sooner than later would decrease my chances of oxidation?
Don't worry about oxidation as your wire should be cold but remember that there can be water on the inner surface of the frame of the annealer. Mount the air wipe (which uses dry, clean air) in a position so that water cannot drip or splash back on to the wire. (IE) Where the wire exits the frame of the annealer.
