For the widest range of industrial compressed-air equipment in North America, manufacturers are wise to turn to the experts at EXAIR Corporation. This team offers valuable knowledge about all relevant subjects, including static electricity. To help customers better understand this area, EXAIR offers a new white paper, The Basics of Static Electricity.
This white paper offers 20 comprehensive and fully coloured pages on the causes of static electricity, how it develops, and how to combat it in manufacturing operations.
Prevent product damage, worker injury
The Basics of Static Electricity is an all-encompassing document that helps customers fully understand the science behind static, in order to deal with it more effectively. Static electricity results when non-conductive materials come into contact and separate, or create friction between them, which leads to imbalanced ions. To restore this balance, EXAIR recommends its line of static eliminators, which help to maintain proper process speeds while preventing both product damage and worker injury.
Particularly in the winter season, when the air gets dryer, electrostatic buildup is a common phenomenon. Static appears in various inconsequential, everyday situations, and it can lead to significant issues that affect product quality, process speeds, and harmful shocks to employees when it is present in a manufacturing process. EXAIR makes a family of very effective static eliminators to help with a multitude of processes.
Not only is the new white paper a helpful road map to eliminating static in manufacturing operations; it also highlights various EXAIR solutions that are appropriate for every individual process. For example, the Super Ion Air Knife suits applications that require wide area coverage, while the Ion Air Cannon is right for remote mounting or certain distances, the Ion Air Gun suits handheld, manual tasks, the Intellistat Ion Air Gun works for labs and clean rooms, and the Ionizing Bar or Ionizing Point is ideal for processes sensitive to airflow.
Customers can easily download The Basics of Static Electricity from the EXAIR website and being dealing with static in their operations right away.
Established in 1983, EXAIR manufactures static eliminators and other equipment from its headquarters in Cincinnati.
