Eliminating Static Charges On Medical Blankets

A manufacturer of medical blankets and associated accessories has a static problem. The blankets are made of three layers of material and are heat sealed together. The heat seal forms small channels through which hot air or hot water can circulate to keep the patient warm. The problem is one of static that causes discharge to the operator that are uncomfortable. Secondarily, the static charge on the "sealing bed" can be such that the pinch rollers that pull the material through the sealing bed do not have enough power to over come the static attraction of the material to the bed, thus causing slipping of the rollers on the material which can make marks on the material, ripping, etc... Customer has installed Model 112048 48" (1219mm) Super Ion Air Knives to eliminate the problems.
