How Ionizing Bars Work

Ionizing Bars Work


Gen4® Ionizing Bars

Ionizing Bars

EXAIR's Gen4 Ionizing Bar eliminates static electricity on paper, film and plastics that can attract dust and foreign materials, ruin product appearance, produce tearing or jamming, and zap personnel. The electrically powered Ionizing Bar is compact, allowing it to fit in the confined spaces of machinery, where the charge is generated. A high concentration of positive and negative ions produce fast static decay, neutralizing any surface within 2" (51mm) of the bar.

The unique design of the shockless Ionizing Bar offers improved performance and reliability in industrial applications. Life expectancy has been extended by insertion molding of the stainless steel ion emitters into a durable plastic.

The Gen4 Ionizing Bar includes a five foot shielded cable with ground. A mounting flange is provided for easy installation and all components are fully assembled. A 5kV power supply is required for bar operation.

EXAIR’s Gen4 Ionizing Bar is engineered to perform up to 25% better than previous models for applications where the bar is mounted within 2" of the surface it is treating. It has also been designed to perform well 100% farther away by providing static elimination up to 4" from a charged surface.
