Static eliminators, types and how to chose the right type for your application
Static electricity can be troublesome in many production processes where non-conductive materials such as plastic, paper, wood and textile are processed. To find out if you have a problem related to static electricity we offer you to measure the surface of the material for the presence of static electricity. You can ask your local distributor or request a Home-Test-Measuring-Kit with our static meter, de FMX-004, via our Chat. Ionising bars or static eliminators are the best way to eliminate static on production machinery.Simco-Ion anti-static bars or static elimators are produced at custom lengths to suit many different applications. The position inside different machines varies, depending on the distance to the material that needs to be neutralized or the design of the machine. Depending on space available and power requirements, we Simco-Ion produces a variety of long and short range ionizing bars in both AC and DC solutions. AC meaning with an external power supply and DC normally with an internal(24Vdc) power supply. The most commonly used Simco-Ion anti-static bar or static eliminator is the Performax (IQ) Easy that can bought in lengths ranging from 270mm up to 3690mm. The industrial static eliminator also is available in a high-speed version and an IQ(communication with network/plc/etc.) version, the Performax (IQ) Easy Speed
What do ionisers look like and which one is right for my application?
Ionisers are available in different sizes and shapes. The choice depends on the application and a number of distinguishing features:
- Technology (external power supply , or integrated high voltage 24V)
- Working distance(product selection table)
- Options for positioning device in the machine
- Material velocity
- Object To be neutralised, 3D product or flat material web(solution selection)
- Environmental conditions, temperature, humidity, Atex zone

What causes static charge?
Static charge is mainly caused by friction and separation of poorly conducting materials. Static charge can be demonstrated by measuring with an electrostatic fieldmeter. See the section measuring instruments for possibilities or get advice from a Simco-Ion represenatative.
