Sometimes when chopped or granulated materials are drawn or blown through ductwork at high speeds, enough friction is created to charge the waste material to high voltages. Once charged, the bits of waste material may stick to each other or cling to the inside of the ductwork and air separator. This quickly clogs the system.
The BarStat Ionicflow System continuously neutralizes static charges with a series of patented electrodes mounted in a bar system. Placed in the conveying lines near an air separator, baler or granulator, the BarStat system directs a flood of positive and negative ions in the path of the highly charged edge trim or granulate. All ions are neutralized, regardless of polarity, and the waste material continues to flow freely en route to the baler, collection bin or other resting place.
The BarStat system design enables it to thrive in high dust environments, such as trim and paper waste, remittance and other paper-based operations.
