The small Staticmaster® 4068 Mini-Fan Ionizer is versatile table-top or “in-tool” solution for static issues.
The Staticmaster® 4068 Mini-Fan Ionizer is the ideal tool for removing static charge from plastic weigh boats, vials, test tubes, and irregularly shaped objects before they are placed into the weigh chamber. Utilizing the model 2U500 Ionizing Cartridge (sold separately), the Mini-Fan ionizer delivers a balanced stream of ions capable of removing static charges quickly and effectively.
The Staticmaster® 2U500, 3″ Ionizing Cartridge is a self-powered static eliminator that eliminates the problem of “fly-away” powders and inaccurate measurements in precision weighing applications by utilizing it’s proven alpha ionizing technology.
Alpha Ionization Technology
Alpha energy delivers an intrinsically balanced cloud of ions that are extremely effective in eliminating static changes, reducing product damage and yield loss in the electronics, plastics, graphics, printing and converting industries. They are great for critical applications such as explosive environments because they do not require power and do not product sparks.
Based upon safe alpha technology, the ionizers are powered by their own internal energy source, Polonium-210. This naturally occurring isotope is locked inside a metallurgically bonded foil of gold and silver using NRD’s proprietary encapsulation process, assuring you of a safe, sealed source of alpha ionization.
Verification and Calibration:
Ionizer performance can be tested and verified with a charge plate monitor. Important tests to perform are positive and negative decay times and ion balance. It is recommended to test ionizer performance at least 1 per year.
