Prevent Shocks, Jamming, Tearing and Static Cling!

Prevent Shocks, Jamming, Tearing and Static Cling!

Static electricity can cause problems. • Materials tear, jam or curl • Webs and films cling to themselves • Electronic sensors fail, making false readings • Hazardous sparks or shocks • Product clings to itself, rollers, machine beds • Dust attraction ruins surface finishes EXAIR manufactures a complete line of Gen4™ static eliminators to remedy common static problems. Many use our engineered airflow products to minimize air use and noise while delivering maximum results by moving more static eliminating ions to the product surface. The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon™ neutralizes static electricity and cleans at distances up to 15 feet (4.6m) with no moving parts. It is ideal for those hard to reach spaces or confined areas that require a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions. With an optional pressure regulator, the air volume and velocity are infinitely adjustable over a wide range, for light to heavy duty applications. http://www.exair.com/184/sepromo.htm
