Static Eliminators Eliminate Static And Blowoff Dust With Nex Flow Air-Blade Air Ionizers
Air Blade™ Ionizer for Packaging Operation
In the packaging section of a cheese plant, small dust particles were attracted to the plastic web causing severe quality issues. Due to the environment, a contact brush was not possible and a blower ionizer was too large. In addition, they needed adequate force to blow off any dust that may just "stick".
A 12" Model 15112 Air-Blade™ Ionizer neutralized the plastic preventing the dust attraction and also loosened and removed any particulate from the web. It was mounted to blow the dust away from the direction for packaging providing a clean barrier for the product. It was compact, and essentially maintenance free. Scrap rates were reduced dramatically. The units also “last” because of the high quality static bar, fully shielded cable. Many competitive units had poor quality cable that leads to early failure of their static bar.
Air Blade™ Ionizer for Thermoforming
In a thermoforming operation of a food application container, there were dust problems due to the buildup of high static charge on the web that attracted small particulate to the web. In order to operate at maximum speed possible, a strong static bar was required. The standard strength static bars tried by competitors failed to dissipate the state fast enough for the speeds utilized. Noise was also a concern.
In addition, there was a need for a compact blow off to remove any dust. An 18" Model 16118X Super Triple X-Stream™ Air-Blade™ Ionizer incorporating the extra strength Haug Model VS Static Bar neutralized the plastic easily even when the static bar could not be close.
Even with air, a standard static bar simply did not neutralize fast enough. The X-Stream™ Air-Blade™ Ionizer was compact and extremely quiet in its operation. The Model 16118X with the VS bar eliminated static charge and the dust attraction and the air blade air knife portion loosened and removed any particulate. Quality and production rate improved dramatically.
Extruded Rubber Web
Model 16118X Air Blade™ Ionizer with the extra strong static bar was the only available system that could solve the high static proble.
In choosing the size and type of vortex tube, always remember to use designs that can hold up to an often hostile environment – stainless steel vortex tubes with metal generators are the best choice and avoiding the use of plastic parts that may degrade over time. A properly filtered air supply will maintain trouble free, essentially maintenance free operation and optimum production output. The air supply can be turned on an off as required with a solenoid valve activated when required.
