SMC Pneumatics claims to have solved static elimination applications with the introduction of the IZS30 series ioniser.

Elimination of static electrical charges on products in many industrial processes will improve production, product quality and materials handling operations. Static charges can result in dust and particle adhesion to surfaces and friction between surfaces resulting in sparks generated by statically charged objects.

Generation of ions and use of an air curtain dispersing the ions over the product are automatically turned off when static charge is not detected, resulting in reduced energy usage and cost savings to the customer.

Current applications for the IZS30 include eliminating static electricity from PET bottles in materials handling which prevents dust adhesion, reducing friction during conveying and handling and reducing dust adhesion to the product for glass substrate packaging applications.

The IZS30 ioniser can be used in conjunction with an optional external workpiece sensor that enables rapid discharge of static from the product that is being deionised. A recent test using this method achieved a discharge time of 0.3 s with static build-up significantly decreased from 3000 to 300 V.
