Promotional Item: Gen4 Static Eliminators and a free AC Sensor

As the weather gets colder and the air gets dryer, static electricity can become a real nuisance in a production plant.  Machines will start jamming, alignments will be difficult, debris will collect on surfaces, and hazardous sparks can shock personnel.  EXAIR manufactures a large line of Gen4 Static Eliminators to remove this static nuisance.  And beginning January 1st, 2019; EXAIR will be giving away a free AC Sensor, a $57.00 value, with a purchase of any of the Gen4 Static Eliminators.

EXAIR stocks eight different product lines in two different styles, Gen4 Static Eliminators with Air and Gen4 Static Eliminators without Air.  In conjunction with a power supply, these ionizers can create both negative ions and positive ions to remove any type of static charge that is on the surface.  The Gen4 Power Supplies come in either a 2 port or 4 port configuration; so that, you can power multiple Gen4 Static Eliminators at once.  From the power supply to the ionizer, an armored and electromagnetic shielded cable is used in a single wire design. This helps to protect the cable from abrasions, cuts and splits in industrial areas.   The Gen4 Static Eliminators have a shockless design, and are UL Component Recognized and CE compliant.  I will give a brief description of each product that utilizes this rugged industrial design for optimal static neutralization.

Gen4 Static Eliminators with Air:

Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife
  1. Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife: This product has the best compressed air efficiency in removing static by combining the Super Air Knife with an Ionizing Bar.  The Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife has a 40:1 amplification ratio and uses the laminar air flow to carry the positive and negative ions to the surface up to 20 feet (6.1 meters) away.  The laminar air flow also allows for a quick static discharge in applications with fast conveyance speeds.  EXAIR manufactures stock lengths from 3” (76mm) to 108” (2.74 meters).  Some typical applications for the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife are found in web cleaning, sheeters, pre-paint dust removal, and shrink wrappers.

    Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife
  2. Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife: Similar to the Gen4 Super Ion Air Knife, the Gen4 Standard Air Knife has a good efficiency at 30:1 amplification ratio.  It utilizes the Coanda effect to draw in ambient air, and they come in stocked lengths from 3” (76mm) to 48” (1.22 meters).  The Gen4 Standard Ion Air Knife are used in similar applications as well as mold releasing, package cleaning, label applications and plastic bag opening.

    Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe
  3. Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe: This product blows ionized air in a 360-degree pattern.  They are engineered to remove static and debris from the outside of hoses, plastic pipes, extrusions, and coated wires.  With the split design, the Gen4 Super Ion Air Wipe can easily mount around the product without having to rethread.  They come in two different sizes with a 2” (51mm) and 4” (102mm) inner diameter. The ionized air has a fast decay in removing static for speedy transfers.

    Gen4 Ion Air Cannon
  4. Gen4 Ion Air Cannon: Just like the name, this product will shower an area with ions to remove static. It can reach distances up to 15 feet (4.6 meters).  They are used in multiple areas including pre-paint car bodies, containers, shrink packaging, lenses, etc.  As an Air Amplifier, a small amount of compressed air will draw in a large amount of ambient air.  The ions are carried to the surface by the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon in a laminar air steam.   Once the ions coat the surface area, the air flow can gently remove any debris held by static forces.

    Gen4 Ion Air Gun
  5. Gen4 Ion Air Gun: For manual static removal to target specific areas, the Gen4 Ion Air Gun will work great.  This product comes standard with 10 feet (3 meters) of shielded cable for maximum reach.  An ergonomic air gun is attached to a Gen4 Ion Air Jet to manually remove static in difficult areas and to pre-treat within “shock” zones.  The Ion Air Guns work great for small batch processes used for quality checks or label applications.

    Gen4 Ion Air Jet
  6. Gen4 Ion Air Jet: Similar to the Ion Air Gun, this product is used for “hands-free” operations. They use a small amount of compressed air to “shoot” the ions onto a target area.  They can be operated with a solenoid valve or foot pedal to blow ions during specific times and situations.  They can easily be attached to a Stay Set Hose and Magnetic Base for best “hands-free” positioning for optimal cleaning.  They work well on small targets for automated systems or inspections areas prior to packaging.

Gen4 Static Eliminators without Air:

Gen4 Ionizing Bar
  1. Gen4 Ionizing Bar: This rugged design is for industrial use to remove static cling from flat surfaces. They range in length from 3” (76mm) to 108” (2.74 meters).  Without the assistance of air, the product has to be within 2 inches (51 mm) from the surface to remove static charges.  The Gen4 Ionizing Bar is compact, shockless and works well in applications where blowing air could be a detriment.  The applications would include screen printing, labeling, and large printing processes.

    Gen4 Ionizing Point
  2. Gen4 Ionizing Point: This single point design is manufactured to remove static on small targets in tight spots.  Utilizing the same rugged design, this product can remove static in spot areas and help to stop jams from slitting operations. They can also be panel mounted to neutralize areas using ducted air.

Rewards, Deals, And Free Stuff

I’ve got a stack of plastic in my wallet. No; it’s not credit cards…I learned my lesson (and paid my tuition) at that school long ago. See, these are the ubiquitous “rewards” type cards…the ones that get you discounts, “points” for use at future purchases, etc., when you present it to the cashier at the time of your current purchase. While I’m perfectly happy to take advantage of the savings on stuff I’m going to buy anyway, I also know that the business who gave me that card is tracking my purchases (along with everyone else’s, very likely including you, dear reader) in order to position product, set pricing, more effectively advertise, and otherwise promote their goods and/or services in the most profitable manner.

Over the course of the past week, the card that I use at my favorite lunchtime (and…full disclosure: other times too) sandwich shop has netted me a coupon, printed on my receipt for a nice discount on my next meal there. It’s only good for the next four days following, so I have to be mindful to “use it or lose it.” Which is about as likely as anyone in my household finding out what the ill effects of letting ice cream reach its expiration date in our freezer.

But I digress…back to the sandwiches. I’m currently 3 for 3 on the coupon deals. I know, in my heart of hearts, that they will not last forever. I’m not going to lie to you; that’s going to be a hard day. But I’ll manage – I do covet your thoughts and well wishes, though.

We don’t have an EXAIR “rewards” card…

Although, how cool would that be? I'm looking at YOU, Marketing Dept!!!

It’s Getting Hot. A Good Reason For a Cabinet Cooler Bonus

It would appear that the heat is here, as my car has a thermometer which I am pretty sure lied to me on Sunday when it was reading 97°F.  I think perhaps it was, but it is getting hotter all across the country and that means we are fielding the calls on electrical cabinets and equipment breaking down due to heat issues.   This is all happening just in time for our new promo.

ccJUL_ACsensor186x149

That’s right, order any of the Cabinet Cooler® Systems listed and receive a free A/C Sensor Pen.  This pen has saved me from getting shocked many of times around my home.   Of course, every time I can’t find my A/C Sensor I have had faith I turned the correct breaker off and as soon as I touch the outlet to change it out I get hit with 110V.

 

We are here to assist your choice of Cabinet Cooler system and to provide a very fast solution to the downtime you are experiencing. We manufacture Cabinet Cooler systems from 275 Btu/Hr through 5600 Btu/Hr with NEMA 12, 4 and 4X integrity. If you don’t know what Cabinet Cooler System you need, take a look at the form below. It can be found on our site, get the information and call, fax, e-mail or live chat with an Application Engineer to get a quick and accurate response on what amount of cooling your system will need.

Sizing Guide

 

Over our thirty years in business we have also seen many companies who only experience a short span of seasonal heat and have found that 2000 Btu/Hr is enough refrigeration to offset summertime heat load, in most cases. Choosing a model with a thermostat control will turn the cooler on and off as needed and minimize compressed air use. Cabinet Cooler systems are in STOCK and ship same day for domestic and Canadian orders received by 3:00 pm EDT. We can get your cabinet cooled FAST and eliminate your heat related problems. Cabinet Cooler systems are shipped ready to install through a standard electrical knockout. There is no waiting for oil to settle back into the compressor motor, no mounting templates required or huge holes to cut into your cabinet. Cabinet Cooler systems have no moving parts to wear, making them rugged and lasting in your hot environment.
