Compressed Air Australia announces the availability of a new range of anti-static air guns designed to remove static electricity, contaminants and dust from parts prior to labelling, assembly, packaging, painting or finishing.

EXAIR’s new Ion air gun features a metal armoured high voltage cable to protect against abrasion and cuts; a replaceable emitter point; integrated ground connection; and electromagnetic shielding. The shockless air gun neutralises static electricity and cleans at distances up to 4.6m (15 feet). Applications include moulded parts cleaning, pre-paint dust removal, furniture finishing, and package cleaning prior to labelling or printing.

Key features of Ion air guns include a high velocity air jet that uses a small amount of compressed air to entrain 80 percent of the total output airflow from the surrounding room air; an electrically energised emitter at the discharge end, filling the entire airstream with positive and negative ions capable of neutralising high static charges in a fraction of a second; an optional regulator allowing infinite adjustment of air volume and velocity; new selectable voltage power supply; and comfortable grip and hand position allowing hours of continuous use without fatigue.

Ion air guns are certified to meet the rigorous safety, health and environmental standards of the USA, European Union and Canada that are required to attain CE and UL marks. The air gun is also RoHS compliant.

The lightweight Ion air guns come with a hanger hook for easy storage while the 3m shielded power cable is flexible and designed for rugged use.
