Static electricity is an imbalance between positive and negative charges in materials. Most people have experienced it in everyday life whether it be with their laundry being “clingy,” making a balloon stick to a wall after rubbing it
Static can be a major problem in manufacturing processes involving plastic. When producing, cutting or plastic materials and other types of insulating materials, static charge can build up. Even metals and conductive materials can have issues with dust
Some product manufacturers require you to register your personal data to obtain drawings and technical data. Nex Flow does not – as we believe “information that will help you in choosing your product should be free and accessible”.
What causes static charges and why control it? Plastics, glass and other insulating materials generate a static charge when rubbed, cut, and stretched. Hot or warm plastics will generate a static charge as they cool. In many production
When utilizing a static bar with a compressed air operated air knife, the further you are away increases the time needed for static charge removal so you may need a stronger static bar if dwell time is inadequate
