Selecting The Right Static Control Product
EXAIR offers systems for total static control. When static is a problem on moving webs, sheet stock, three dimensional parts, extrusions or packaging, EXAIR has a static control product to suit your application.
Industrial Static Control Products With Air
Combining our engineered airflow products with ionizers gives us the ability to eliminate industrial static charges quickly and at great distances. Laminar flow airstreams produced make it possible to blow away any contaminants and the static charge that attracts them. They are ideal for:
- Controlling static in hard to reach places or obstructed surfaces
- Removing static from product moving at high speeds
- Eliminating static on surfaces with an extremely high charge
Parts hanging from the conveyor are cleaned and static neutralized by the Super Ion Air Knives that surround them.
Using a Super Ion Air Knife, static electricity is neutralized on the film surface to eliminate dust attraction.
Compressed air consumption and noise are minimized while providing force that can be adjusted from a "blast" to a "breeze". Static control tests show these ionizers positioned two feet (610mm) away from a charged surface to be as effective as an Ionizing Bar without air delivery positioned one-half inch (13mm) from the surface.
The Super Ion Air Knife provides the best performance of all ionizers. It uses our Super Air Knife (40:1 air amplification) to deliver a uniform sheet of ionized air that controls static up to 20 feet (6.1m) away.
The Standard Ion Air Knife uses our Standard Air Knife (30:1 air amplification) to deliver a sheet of ionized air to the surface. Air consumption and noise are somewhat higher than the Super Ion Air Knife.
The Ion Air Cannon uses our Super Air Amplifier (22:1 air amplification) to provide a focused, conical airstream that is capable of removing static charges up to 15 feet (4.6m) away.
The Super Ion Air Wipe uses our Super Air Wipe to provide a uniform 360° ionized airstream that is easy to clamp around a part for eliminating static electricity and contaminants.
The Ion Air Gun uses our High Velocity Air Jet (5:1 air amplification) to provide a narrow beam of ionized airflow. This hand-held static control product is rugged for industrial use and has incredibly fast static decay rates.
The Ion Air Jet is an effective spot cleaner. Available for permanent mount or with flexible Stay Set Hose, this ionizer is the ideal way to focus an ionized airflow that eliminates static in confined areas.
Industrial Static Control Products Without Air
In some situations, even the smallest amount of airflow can disturb the product. This is especially true for lightweight materials. EXAIR manufactures two styles of ionizer for these critical applications.
A Model 7006 6" (152mm) Ionizing Bar eliminates the static charge causing packing peanuts to cling.
Ionizing Bars are ideal for controlling static on relatively flat materials, where the bar can be mounted within a few inches of the product surface.
The Ionizing Point is effective for spot neutralization of static electricity. The compact size makes it ideal for winding or slitting operations. It can also be mounted through a duct to neutralize static charges due to moving air or materials.
Special Industrial Static Control Products
EXAIR manufactures static eliminators suited to specific application requirements. The special ionizer (shown at right) was developed for the automotive industry.
This air amplifier and ionizer combination
is used to dry water based paints on car bodies while eliminating the possibility of a static charge that might attract dust or other contaminants.
