Static Elimination Products
The Ioniser—Pro 600/1200 is one of the safest to use static elimination bar on the market.
So how does it work?
The Ioniser-Pro static elimination bar works by using Titanium prong emitters to neutralise the electrical charges within or on the surface of a material (also known as Static Electricity). Static electricity is created whenever two surfaces contact and separate and at least one surface is an electrical insulator such as plastic, paper, fabric etc.
The ioniser bar is connected to the power supply by a two metre cable protected by a flexible conduit that is sealed at both ends. This configuration allows the power supply to be mounted well away from moving components conveniently. As the connecting cable carries only low power through a sealed conduit, the safety of the Ioniser-Pro unit is enhanced.
The power supply has been designed to be extremely durable and provide long trouble free service.
The splash proof conduit provides reassurance for the effective placement of the unit.
What is Static?
Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material. The charge remains until it is able to move away by means of an electric current or electrical discharge. Static electricity is named in contrast with current electricity, which flows through wires or other conductors and transmits energy.
A static electric charge is created whenever two surfaces contact and separate and at least one of the surfaces has a high resistance to electric current and is therefore an electrical insulator i.e. plastic, paper etc.
Static electricity is generally undesirable in industry as it usually attracts dust and other unwanted particles. It is also known to repel print, sprays and powder coatings, thus compromising their physical and aesthetic suitability.
A static electricity build up in dusty environments can result in ignition and explosion as sparks can be produced upon discharge.
Why is static dangerous?
Having Static electricity in a working environment has many potential dangers such as,
- Ignition of flammable materials or atmospheres
- Cause harm to sensitive electronic components
- Cause harm to employees
