Vertical form, fill and seal operations often result inrejects of the finished package due to product fines attracting to the film in the seal area. Positioning an ionising air nozzle just below the fill tube will neutralise the static charges, resulting in a clean seal. To prevent the film from sticking to the shoulder/former, place an anti-static bar over the flat film just prior to the forming operation to neutralise the static charge.
The VicinION is an anti-static bar designed to neutralize electrostatically charged surfaces. The anti-static bar is equipped with an integrated high-voltage power supply, emitters and a status LED and is supplied with a 24V DC power supply via an M8 connector. The VicinION is optimally used between a distance of 5 and 75 mm.
