Improved Ionizing Bar Better Eliminates Static Electricity
Exair’s Gen4 Ionizing Bar is designed to eliminate static electricity 25 percent better than previous models by eliminating larger static charges more quickly. The company says it has improved range and is effective when mounted as far as 4" from a charged surface; it can be used to eliminate static on plastics, webs, sheet stock and other product surfaces where tearing, jamming or hazardous shocks are a problem.
New design features include a metal-armored high-voltage cable to protect against abrasion and cuts, integrated ground connection and electromagnetic shielding. The ionizing bar’s compact design enables it to fit in the confined spaces of machinery using an integrated mounting flange, where a static charge is generated. A high concentration of positive and negative ions produces fast static decay, neutralizing surfaces that are causing production, quality or safety problems.The line is available in models 3" to 108" long.
A REVIEW OF AVAILABLE TEST METHODS, COMMON APPLICATIONS AND INNOVATIVE INSTRUMENTATION...
Benefits of anodizing include durability, color stability, ease of maintenance, aesthetics, cost of initial finish and the fact that it is a safe and healthy process. Maximizing these benefits to produce a high–performance aluminum finish can be accomplished by incorporating test procedures in the manufacturing process.
To determine the most cost-effective materials to use in a corrosive environment, manufacturers routinely test raw materials, partial assemblies, randomly selected production pieces, finished items, returned goods, and competitors’ products.
