Exair introduces its Ion Air Cannon designed to eliminate static electricity and clean at distances up to 15 feet with no moving parts. According to the company, it is ideal for bench-tops, machine mounting, and those “hard-to-reach” spaces that require a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions.

Design features include a metal armored, high-voltage cable designed to protect against abrasion and cuts, a replaceable emitter point, integrated ground connection and electromagnetic shielding. The product incorporates Exair’s Super Air Amplifier said to minimize compressed air use by inducing surrounding airflow at a ratio of 22:1. The amplified airflow carries the ions to the target, enabling the Ion Air Cannon to eliminate static charges in less than a half second, the company says. Air volume and velocity are controllable from a “breeze” to a “blast” to gently wipe or forcefully blow away contaminants.

The Ion Air Cannon operates on a selectable voltage power supply, and it includes a sturdy stand with swivel adjustment for directing airflow. A hose or tube can be easily connected to the air intake to draw air from another area. The electrical ion source is shockless, and there is no radioactive element. Applications include bag opening, sheet separation, cleaning molded parts, pre-paint dust removal, package cleaning and container neutralization.
