Static Eliminator (Ionizer) Selection Points [Price]
The price of a static eliminator (ionizer) is mainly determined by the three basic performance factors of static elimination: speed, ion balance, and maintainability.
Static Elimination Speed
The faster the static elimination speed, the shorter the time required to eliminate the static electricity from a single target.
To prevent the takt time of a manufacturing line from being affected, it is necessary to eliminate static electricity quickly.
A static eliminator (ionizer) with good ion balance can bring the target to an uncharged state (close to ±0 V) and can maintain this state. Poor ion balance decreases the static electricity elimination accuracy. When this is the case, static electricity problems cannot be completely prevented.
Continued use of a static eliminator (ionizer) that employs the corona discharge method leads to the deterioration of the electrode probe, thereby decreasing the static elimination capability. This decreased capability reduces the static elimination speed and makes the ion balance worse. These symptoms can be fixed by maintaining the electrode probe. Maintenance frequency varies depending on the type of static eliminator (ionizer). It is necessary to select a device that matches the desired purpose and installation environment.
