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 ability to eliminate static can be greatly improved when attaching the Super Air Knife to the Ionizing Bar (see Super Ion Air Knife). The Super Ion Air Knife propels the static neutralizing ions over a larger area which is ideal for high speed, high charge applications. Air delivery can also remove dust and clean the product surface.

How the Ionizing Bar Works

The shielded power cable (1) carries the 5kVrms power supply output to each capacitively coupled stainless steel emitter point (2) of the Ionizing Bar. A ground wire (3) attached to the bar creates a discharge path from the emitter points to the bar channel (4). The discharge at each emitter charges the molecules of the gases of the surrounding room air, resulting in a shower of ions that are positively and negatively charged (5). If the material surface has a negative charge, it will attract the positive ions from the ionizing bar and become balanced or neutralized. If the material surface has a positive charge, it will attract the negative ions from the ionizing bar to become balanced or neutralized. The voltage potential at each emitter is high enough to ionize the surrounding air without generating a shock when any of the emitters are touched.

Ionizing Bars
All Ionizing Bars include a 5' (1.52m) length of shielded cable and assembled connector. For other cable lengths, please contact us.
