Ionizing Bars
Ionizing Bars  With a Model 55000 Series Ionizing Bar attached to an AiRTX Air Knife, you can deliver static-neutralizing ions to a target at distances up to 20 ft.(6 m). It’s ideal for w­eb/sheet stock, conveyorized product, extrusions, or arrangement in halo shape to w­rap your product in ionized air. Quiet, maintenance-free and a miser w­ith compressed air, the knife is available in all standard knife lengths or (optionally) in custom lengths

Ionizing Bars Technical Data

Ionizing Bars are powered by a high voltage Power Supply for Maximum High Speed Static Elimination. Ionizing bars incorporate a unique inductively coupled design, which achieves powerful static neutralization with complete shockproof operation:

How Ionizing Bars Work

The power supply converts the primary (115V or 230V) electricity supply into a high voltage low amperage output. This output energy is transferred to the ionizing bar through the power cable. A capacitive coupling inside the bar reduces the energy to a level which is completely shockproof to a human but creates a large potential of ions for neutralization.

The stainless steel pins in the bar emit this energy (Corona Discharge) in the form of a field of ionized air. This ionized air corona supplies ions of both polarities. Thus it is able to neutralize static charges of positive or negative. When a statically charged object or material passes through this corona, the free moving ions are attracted to the opposite charge on the material. In this way the static electricity is neutralized. The ions are emitted up to 6" from the bar and have a life of approximately 2 seconds before they recombine with themselves or the atmosphere.

The typical AiRTX Static Elimination installation consists of one or more Ionizing Bars connected to an AiRTX Power Supply

Installing Ionizing Bars

Correct Positioning is Vital to the Efficient Operation of Static Elimination Bars. Factors to be considered are:
  1. Correct positioning relative to the problem, i.e., immediately before problem area, with no intermediary rollers or processes which could regenerate the charge.
  2. Speed of material—higher speeds require more static elimination.
  3. Conductivity and density of material. The less conductive or more dense (molecularly) the material, the more stubborn will be the charge.
  4. Grounding—vitally important to the correct operation of bars. They will not function and will become "live" if not properly grounded.
The Following Rules Should Be Observed When Installing AiRTX Ionizing Bars
  • Optimal Distance from material to be neutralized is 2" - 4"
  • Bars should be staggered if positioned on opposite sides of the material—distance between bars should not be less than the distance of either bar to surface (2" - 4")
  • Avoid proximity to grounded parts of the machine – Grounded objects will distort the corona and reduce its efficiency.
  • CAUTION: This equipment is NOT to be used in hazardous vapor areas.
