Every year about this time we like to remind everyone that Static Season is upon us. Problems will start popping-up in all areas of the print shop – prepress, press and bindery. One product that can prevent and eliminate static problems in the pressroom and the bindery is the Ionix Static Eliminator.
Ionix is better than ionization bars or tinsel
Ionix Static Eliminators work better than ionization bars or tinsel. Why, you ask? Without getting too complicated in physics, a stack of paper acts like a capacitor. There is an electrical charge between the sheets of paper. Each sheet of paper is non- conductive and acts as an insulator. The ionization bar or the tinsel can only neutralize the electrical charge on the top of the top sheet. The problem is the charge between sheets one and two that causes the feeding problems.
The Ionix Static Eliminator attacks the static problem between the sheets. It is installed in the blower hose so that as air is blown through the Ionix unit it becomes ionized with both positive and negative charges. The charged air is blown between the sheets of paper in the feeder, neutralizing the static charge between the sheets. No static charge means consistent, single sheet feeding.
Ionix Static Eliminators are effective for a year
The Ionix unit isn’t something that you put on your press when you have a problem. It is like a flu shot. You get the shot to prevent the flu not after you have it. Once it is installed, it eliminates any static that might be in the paper. If there is no static…there is no problem. If there is static, you will never know it.
Simply cut the blower hose and insert the barbed ends of the Ionix unit into the hose. No clamps, no screwdrivers, no electrical connections. Installation takes less than 10 minutes. It is fully guaranteed for 30 days from installation and warranted for 6 months under normal usage. Replacement is recommended after a year.
Use Ionix static eliminators on sheet-fed presses and others
Ionix Static Eliminators work on sheet-fed presses, air driven collators, folders, high-speed copiers (such as Xerox Docutech), laminators, case binders, automatic-feed screen presses, mailing machines, inserters, packaging applications and other forced air feed systems. Ionix is especially effective on all carbonless stocks (a pain to run on most duplicators), plastics, gloss-coated and cast-coated paper and synthetic papers.
Ionix Static Eliminators cost $138.50 – $178.50 depending on size for application. Click here to see the product on National Offset Warehouse.com
