Removing Static from a Bagging Operation

Company bags produce. They are experiencing difficulties with bags sticking together due to a static charge. Their operators load a stack of bags onto a wicket similar to what you see at the checkout counters in the grocery store. The bagging machine then pulls off one bag at a time with vacuum. The problem is that static electricity holds the bags together. Instead of getting a single bag, several would come off together and jam up the machine. This necessitated an operator to separate each bag prior to loading and mount them singly onto the wicket. Needless to say this was time consuming and added cost to the process. I suggested they use our Model 8293 Ion Air Gun. Now the operator loads a stack of bags onto the wicket, blows ionized air from the Ion Air Gun to fluff up the stack of hanging bags and removes the static charges attracting them together. This only took a few seconds whereas the old method took several minutes
