Electrostatic surface charges are common in most coating and laminating operations where insulating (non-conductive) materials are processed at very high web speeds. The static charges cause a myriad of production problems ranging from:
The most dangerous situation arises when a spark from a static discharge occurs in the coating/laminating area, that is saturated with volatile vapors, and ignites a fire. ATEX approved static elimination equipment is required in these environments to neutralise static charges and thus prevent fires. Outside the hazardous area ionising bars and blowers can be used for unwind and rewind stations.
The rugged Performax Easy static neutralizing system, with reinforced profile offers superior deflection performance that minimizes damage due to (accidental) bending. The Performax Easy has an integrated high voltage power supply and requires only a low voltage input of 24V DC.
It offers long distance static elimination even up to one meter. The robust design of the reinforced extruded profile allows the use in industrial environment up to even 5 m length. The T-ridge on the backside of the ThunderION enables the user to position the Simco-Ion universal mounting brackets as desired, allowing optimal mounting flexibility. The disc shaped emitters differ from the conventional emitters. They produce a high and balanced ion output.
Compact high efficient static neutralising for explosion hazardous environments. The Performax IQ Easy Ex has an integrated high voltage power supply and requires only a low voltage input of 24V DC. A two color high bright LED visualises bar ON (green) or bar FAULT (red).
Manager IQ Easy Introducing a new level of static control; the heart of the new IQ Easy platform is the Manager IQ Easy. It comprises of a Control unit with a 7” LCD touch screen, provides information from all the connected devices and makes it easy to change and monitor status and parameters. Up to 6 IQ devices can be directly connected to the Manager IQ Easy.
