Paper, plastic, textiles or other materials are normally electrically balanced — that is, they contain an equal number of positive and negative charges. Friction can disturb this balance, causing problems such as dust clinging to product; product clinging to itself, rollers, machine beds or frames; materials tearing, jamming or curling; sheet feeding problems; and, hazardous sparks or shocks.

EXAIR’s Gen4 Super Ion Air Knives remove static electricity by flooding an area with static eliminating ions — up to 6.1 m away. The laminar sheet of air sweeps surfaces clean of static, particulate, dust and dirt, dramatically improving production speeds, product quality and surface cleanliness.

The device incorporates EXAIR’s Super Air Knife that minimises compressed air use by inducing surrounding airflow at a ratio of 40:1. The unique amplified airflow carries the ions to the target, making it possible to eliminate static charges in less than a half second. Air volume and velocity are infinitely controllable from a ‘breeze’ to a ‘blast’ to gently wipe or forcefully blow away debris.

Available in lengths from 3″ (76 mm) to 108″ (2743 mm), the electrical ion source is shockless and there is no radioactive element. Gen4 Super Ion Air Knives have undergone independent laboratory tests to certify they meet the rigorous safety, health and environmental standards of the USA, European Union and Canada that are required to attain the CE and UL marks. They are also RoHS compliant.

Applications include surface cleaning, neutralising plastics, bag opening, printing machinery, packaging operations and elimination of painful static electricity shocks.
