Compressed Air Australia introduces new long ionising bars from EXAIR designed to eliminate static electricity on paper, film and plastics up to 96″ (2438mm) wide in manufacturing environments.
Static electricity in production lines can attract dust and foreign materials, ruin product appearance, produce tearing or jamming, and even zap personnel. The compact electrically powered ionising bar can easily fit in the confined spaces of machinery, where the static charge is generated. A high concentration of positive and negative ions produces fast static decay, neutralising any surface within 2″ (51mm) of the bar.
Featuring a long length that allows use across large production lines, the EXAIR shockless ionising bars offer improved performance and reliability in industrial applications. Life expectancy has been extended by insertion moulding stainless steel ion emitters into durable plastic.
A super air knife can be attached to the ionising bar to improve the ability to eliminate static. The super ion air knife delivers more ions and is effective from a greater distance, which is ideal for high speed, high charge applications. Air delivery can also remove dust and clean the product surface.
