We eliminate static differently - since 1994

Safe - Simple - Affordable static eliminator for your magnet/metal detector drawer

Can also be installed in mixing or drying hoppers!

How static effects magnet drawers, color consistency and color change times

The static in your resin transport system causes the resin in magnet drawer to bridge. Dissipating that static will allow free flow of resin

Static in your resin transport system causes colorant to accumulate and not evenly disburse through the resin causing color variation.

Static in the colorant will slow color changes as colorant sticks to interior surfaces slowing cleanup.

By introducing Ionix Static Eliminator air in your magnet drawer, you dissipate all the static present the in resin transport systems which causes these problems.

How to install the Ionix Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator

The Ionix  Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator is installed through the plastic face of the magnet drawer. The fitting is placed in a 3/8" hole drilled through the drawer face. This air fitting introduces Ionix treated air into the throat area of your process through the magnet drawer resin flow. The Ionix treated air will percolate up to the feeder hopper eliminating any static on the plastic material in the hopper. Ionix air will also eliminate static in the throat transition area and also into the molding machine.

The Ionix Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator operates using house air and an Ionix Static Eliminator. House air is brought to the machine, a air regulator is installed (supplied by Ionix) and the regulated air line continues to an Ionix Static Eliminator cartridge. An air line continues from the Ionix Static Eliminator Cartridge to the installed Magnet Drawer fitting.

The Ionix Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator can be installed anywhere you are having a static problem. You can install it in the side wall of drying or mixing hoppers to prevent colorant separation due to static.

How to operate the Ionix Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator

Once the Ionix Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator is installed, you adjust the air flow into the machine to there is a constant low flow of air. All you want to do is have a low volume of Ionix treated air flowing into the hopper.

If possible, keep a lid on the feeder hopper to trap the Ionix air in the hopper. The lid does not need to fit air tight. All you want to accomplish is to trap the Ionix treated air in your hopper and machine and keep out the ambient untreated air. This will allow the Ionix treated air to percolate through your resin transport system and dissipate static.

You might have to adjust air flow depending upon the resin you process. Certain resins will have higher static charges than others (i.e. regrind material) so you might find it necessary to increase air flow of the Ionix treated air to deliver enough to dissipate the static encountered in the resin. However, the better you trap Ionix air in your hopper feeding system the more effective Ionix is in dissipating static.

Maintenance of the Ionix Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator

The only maintenance necessary is periodic replacement of the Ionix Static Eliminator Cartridge. As air passed through the unit, its static elimination properties are diminished. Since usage widely varies among users, it is difficult to exactly predict replacement schedules. Our experience is they should be replaced once a year. However, if you run 24 hours a day 7 days a week you might have to change out cartridges sooner.

How to order the Ionix Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator

The Magnet Drawer kit comes with everything you need to install the Ionix Magnet Drawer Static Eliminator in the face of a PLASTIC Magnet Drawer. (Please contact us if you have a metal mag drawer face). Order one kit per magnet drawer.

The kit includes the air diffuser fitting, 25' of 3/8" air hose, regulator, one Ionix PL300-2 Static Eliminator, 3 hose clamps and a set of blade drills to cut the beveled hole in the face of a plastic magnet drawer. If you do not need all the parts in the kit, you can buy all the parts in the kit as needed separately.

How the Ionix static elimination process works

Ionix Static Eliminators are installed in a compressed air line blowing onto the surface or into spaces you are trying to eliminate the static. This new technology allows compressed air to act as an electrical conductor after being forced through the Ionix unit. Ionix eliminates static charges on surfaces by providing a non destructive dissipative path through the treated air to the attracting opposing electrical charge or electrical ground.

Therefore, as a dissipative process, Ionix units can automatically and reliably eliminate either positive or negative charges. Since the process is dissipative, metal in proximity to the Ionix has no detrimental effect on its performance. Ionix is especially effective in applications where traditional ionization is not effective. Ionix is non-nuclear and environmentally harmless. It is safe to use in hazardous environments.

Since it can be installed in any air line regardless of the presence of metal or distance from the Ionix, Ionix Static Eliminators can be used in a wide variety of applications with little or no modification to your existing equipment.
