FAQs: Ionizing Air Gun
Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions relating to our Ionizing Air Gun and various other static elimination products we have. If you need additional help with your application and/or can't find an answer to your question, please call our factory at 1-705-770-4455 or email an Application Engineer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 1. Can I duct the ionized air?
- Though ducted STREAMTEK ionizers have been OK in situations where diminished performance was acceptable, we do not recommend ducting due to the air turbulence & recombination of ions.
- 2. After removing our static charge with your Ionizing Air Gun, could the static charge come back?
- If the material or parts experience friction where it rubs against another surface, a new static charge could be created.
- 3. How many amps does the power supply draw?
- Model PS120E (115V, 50/60Hz) has a starting load and running load of <0.5 amps
Model PS220E (220V, 50/60Hz) also has a start load and running load of <0.5 amps
- 4. What exactly will your static meter tell me?
Our Model 7905 Static Meter will help personnel pinpoint the exact location of the static trouble spots within your application(s). Below are the detailed specifications of our static meter.
- Sensitivity: 0 – 200kV full scale, 100V resolution; 0-20kV full scale, 10V resolution
- Zero stability: Within 100V on full range
- Drift: Less than 1% in 10s at full scale deflection
- Accuracy: Better than +/- 5%
- Display: 3-1/2" digit liquid crystal display of surface voltage in kilovolts at 4" polarity and "LO BATT" indication.
- Controls: Push button switch for "power on"
- 5. Why won’t your Ionizing Air Gun demagnetize my metals pieces
- Static Eliminators in general are not engineered to de-magnetize an object. Static attraction and Magnetic attraction are both two very different phenomena’s. The STREAMTEK Ionizing Air Gun provides airflow filled with positive and negative ions to the surface of a material to bring the static charge back to neutral. Magnetic attraction on the other hand is created by lines of force which are caused by the alignment of the atoms in magnetized material.
