Exair’s new long ionizing bars are now available to eliminate static electricity on paper, film and plastics that are up to 96 inches (2438mm) wide. Static electricity can attract dust and foreign materials, ruin product appearance, produce tearing or jamming and zap personnel. The profile of the electrically powered ionizing bar is compact, allowing it to fit in the confined spaces of machinery, where the static charge is generated.
A high concentration of positive and negative ions produce fast static decay, neutralizing any surface within 2 inches (51 mm) of the bar. The long length of the ionizing bars allows them to be used across large production lines.
Life expectancy has been extended by insertion molding the stainless steel ion emitters into a durable plastic. Prices for long ionizing bars start at $793. The ability to eliminate static can be improved when attaching a Super Air Knife to the ionizing bar.
