Dust Adhesion Inside Resin Containers

Stacked resin containers are separated from each other before they are individually placed on the transfer line. The containers are charged with static electricity when separated.
The charged containers attract dust or other minute particles. Even if the dust is blown off with an air blow, the charged dust adheres to the container again.

Conventional countermeasures

Visual inspection

  • Labor costs are high.
  • Some dust is overlooked or missed depending on the worker.

Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)

The costs for labor, disposal and addressing complaints can be reduced.

Countermeasures with static eliminators (ionizers)

Improvements and Effects
Words from the worksite

Reduced labor cost
Reduced cost for addressing complaints

Labor cost: $20/hour x 8 times/day x 250 days = $40,000/year

Cost for disposing return due to complaints: $200 x Once a month x 12 months = $2,400/year

In addition, there are other resulting benefits of improved reliability.
