Static charge in a material can cause problems when this material is used for a next production phase e.g. tubular film used to make bags or a film on a roll has to be unwound . Due to static charges on the film, the layers will cling together causing problem when trying to separate the layers.
When a static charge is in between two layers it is almost impossible to neutralise. Neutralising the static charge on the material has to start as early in the process as possible when the layers are still separate. Throughout the whole production process anti static equipment should be fitted to keep static levels as low as possible, so preventing a static charge build up between the layers.

Want to eliminate industrial static charge and know how to discharge static electricity?
Simco-Ion anti-static bars or static eliminators generate an electrical field which causes the air molecules in the vicinity of the bar to break down into positive and negative ions. Because opposite charges attract, any charged material passing near the bar will attract ions until the charge on the material is neutralized. The materials will no longer be attracted to each other or to the machine parts. Attraction of dust, explosion or fire hazards and electrical shocks to personnel caused by static discharge are avoided. Simco-Ion offers a very wide range of antistatic bars in shockless and non-shockless versions: Performax Easy, Performax IQ Easy, Performax IQ Easy Ex, Performax Easy Ex, ThunderION 2.0, MEB, MEJ, 1/2"SS, MaxION, P-Sh-N and the P-Sh-N-Ex.
