The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon for Static Elimination at a Distance

The static eliminating, Gen4 Ion Air Cannon is ideal for those applications where you need a concentrated flow of Ionized Air to remove static and dust. The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon will entrain a large amount of ambient air, and with the ion emitter point place in the air flow, it can produce static eliminating effectiveness up to 15 feet away. This is perfect for those confined areas that need a concentrated flow of static eliminating ions. These can be operated with a compressed air supply as low as 10 PSIG.

The Gen 4 Ion Air Cannon has a small profile to fit in tight spaces and still have a large amount of air flow. It comes mounted on a sturdy stand with lockable swivels and predrilled holes to allow for easy mounting and orientation of output airflow. Simply connect a compressed air supply, plug in the power supply power cord, and you are in business. Beyond knowing how it can be mounted, here is how it works:

The Gen 4 Ion Air Cannon has a multitude of uses; form and fill bag openings, neutralizing shrink wrap, cleaning and neutralizing parts, removing static on assemblies, pre-paint dust removal and so much more. If you have any questions on how this can help you, please do not hesitate to call me or any of our application engineers.

Static Elimination for Tight Spaces or Areas Sensitive to Airflow

If you’re having problems with static build up on small and/or lightweight materials where even the smallest amount of airflow can disturb the product, EXAIR has the perfect solution, the EXAIR Gen4 Ionizing Point.  The Gen4 Ionizing Point is a single point ionizer that lends itself naturally to winding, rewinding, slitting or a myriad of other applications.  It can even be mounted through the wall of a duct to neutralize static charges in an existing air or conveyance duct.

Gen4 Ion Point 1
EXAIR’s Ion Point In Action

The Gen4 Ionizing Point is very powerful and robust solution that can dissipate 5,000 volts in .24 seconds from 2″ (51mm) away!  The Gen4 Ionizing Point features an electromagnetically shielded high-voltage cable that is armored to protect against abrasion and cuts and its integrated ground design does not require a separate ground connection.  For even more convenience the Gen4 Ionizing Point is replaceable if the point should ever become dull or bent.

Ionizing Point Performance

Its smaller footprint naturally lends itself to installation into the limited space normally associated with smaller applications.  The stainless steel, and replaceable, emitter point is mounted in a saddle that is 1.77″ (45mm) long by 1″ (26mm) wide and includes two .20″ (5mm) mounting holes that are 1.44″ (37mm) apart for easy mounting.

Gen4 Ion Point 3

Gen4 Ionizing Points are supplied power by either the model 7960 power supply which can operate up to two ionizing products or the 7961 that can operate up to four ionizing products.  Both models feature selectable voltage to run on either 115 VAC or 230 VAC.

The Gen4 Ionizing Point is the perfect solution for spot static elimination without air assistance.  Most importantly both the EXAIR Gen4 Ionizing Point and Gen4 power supplies are UL component recognized to US and Canadian safety standards, and are CE and RoHS compliant.

All EXAIR Gen4 Static Eliminators use one of two Power Supplies – your choice of the 2-port Model 7960, or the 4-port Model 7961.

When you are looking for static relief application assistance or expert advice on safe, quiet and efficient point of use compressed air products give us a call.   We would enjoy hearing from you!
