The Basics of Static Electricity

April 05, 2019 - "White Papers"



Static electricity occurs most often on the surface of non-conductive materials but can also occur on ungrounded conductive surfaces. This static electricity and electrostatic discharge can be a large disruptor of processes within manufacturing facilities. It can cause problems with maintaining product quality, keeping process speeds at optimum levels and the morale of personnel experiencing static shocks. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

There are steps that can be taken to eliminate or control static within a facility, and EXAIR can help. 1) Determine the source of the static electricity. 2) Eliminate or minimize the source causing a static charge. 3) Treat the static buildup. To improve effectiveness, EXAIR marries its engineered blow off products with ion technology. The use of laminar airflow distributes the ions faster, at further distances, and into somewhat inaccessible areas. EXAIR has a broad range of static eliminating products to serve most any application.

EXAIR's White Paper "Basics of Static Electricity" is designed to help readers learn about the causes of static electricity, the steps that can be taken to eliminate static, and the products available to help control it.
