SIMCO, represented by ITW Finishing Technologies , has released the Ionfocus ionising nozzle. It produces an intense air flow that is rich in both positive and negative ions.
It has a polished stainless steel casing which makes it suitable for food grade applications. It has a replaceable titanium emitter which has almost unaffected performance even after long term use.
The nozzle runs on a 12V dc supply, usually supplied by an optional 240V power pack. The Ionfocus has two high-luminance LEDs which show the operator if the nozzle is operating correctly. The blue LED lights to indicate normal operation, the red LED lights to indicate high voltage fault.
For added safety the nozzle includes a fault detection circuit with remote alarm output signal for input to a PLC or siren.
