Ion Air Gun Models
Ion Air Guns are available in four different model types:
Ion Air Gun
Ion Air Gun System
Ion Air Gun System with Filter
Ion Air Gun Kit
Power Supply - The Model 7960 selectable voltage Power Supply allows you to choose the input voltages of 115 VAC or 230 VAC. The modular cable with electromagnetic shielding protects sensitive electronics against electromagnetic interference while easing connections and routing. An integrated fuse on the primary protects against voltage spikes. Power Supplies are UL Component Recognized to U.S. and Canadian Standards, and are CE and RoHS compliant.
Shim Sets- The Ion Air Cannon is shipped with a .003" (0.08mm) thick stainless steel shim installed which works best for most applications. The Ion Air Cannon's velocity can be increased by replacing the factory supplied shims with thicker shims. Shim sets include (1) .006" (0.15mm) and (1) .009" (0.23mm) stainless steel shim.

Ion Air Gun Dimensions
How the Ion Air Gun Works
The Ion Air Gun incorporates a High Velocity Air Jet and electrically energized emitter point. A small amount of compressed air is injected into the air jet (1) inducing high volume flow of surrounding air (2) to pass through it.
The emitter point (shockless) at the discharge end of the gun (3) ionizes the entire airstream. The result is a high volume flow of ionized air (4) capable of neutralizing high static charges in fractions of a second. An optional filter and regulator clean the compressed air and allow infinite adjustment of airflow and velocity.
Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife Standards and Certifications
EXAIR's Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife complies with OSHA's Safety Requirements, the EU General Product Safety Directive (2001/95/EC) and meet the noise limitation requirements of the EU Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC). All sound level measurements are taken at 3 feet away.
Gen4 Ionizing Bars and Gen4 Power Supplies are UL Component Recognized to U.S. and Canadian safety standards, and are CE and RoHS compliant.

Selecting the Right EXAIR Static Eliminator
Static Eliminators with Air
Combining our engineered airflow products with ionizers gives us the ability to eliminate the charge quickly and at great distances. Laminar flow airstreams make it possible to blow away any contaminants and the charge that attracts them. They are ideal for:
- Hard to reach places or obstructed surfaces
- Product moving at high speeds
- Surfaces with an extremely high charge
Compressed air consumption and noise are minimized while providing force that can be adjusted from a “blast” to a “breeze”. Tests show these ionizers positioned two feet (610mm) away from a charged surface to be as effective as a Gen4 Ionizing Bar without air delivery positioned one-half inch (13mm) from the surface.
The Gen4 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 effective up to 20 feet (6.1m) away.
The Gen4 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 Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife.
The Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe clamps around the part and creates a ring of ionized airflow. It neutralizes and cleans continuous moving surfaces.
The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon uses our Super Air Amplifier (22:1 air amplification) to provide a focused, conical airstream that is capable of removing the charge up to 15 feet (4.6m) away.
The new patented Intellistat Ion Air Gun produces ionized compressed air to neutralize static and remove troublesome particulates during clean processes, test procedures and sensitive assembly work, particularly in laboratories, clean rooms or scientific testing facilities. With a +/-30 volt balance the Intellistat was designed to use minimal compressed air while delivering precise blow-off and exceptional static decay rates capable of reducing 5000 volts to less than 500 in under one second.
The Gen4 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 eliminator is rugged for industrial use and has incredibly fast static decay rates.
The Gen4 Ion Air Jet uses our High Velocity Air Jet (5:1 air amplification), and 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 at confined areas.
Static Eliminators 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 ionizers for these critical applications.
Gen4 Ionizing Bars are ideal for relatively flat materials, where the bar can be mounted close to the product surface. The Gen4 Ionizing Bar is compact, allowing it to fit in the confined spaces of machinery, where the charge is generated.
The Gen4 Ionizing Point is effective for spot neutralization. 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 Static Eliminators
EXAIR manufactures static eliminators suited to specific application requirements. This special ionizer 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.
