SIMCO anti-static bars generate an electrical field which causes the air molecules in the vicinity of the bar to break down into positive and negative ions. Because opposite charges attract, any charged material passing near the bar will attract ions until the charge on the material is neutralized. The materials will no longer be attracted to each other or to the machine parts. Attraction of dust, explosion or fire hazards and electrical shocks to personnel caused by static discharge are avoided. offers a very wide range of antistatic bars in shockproof and non-shockproof versions. The anti-static bars consist of a series of ionizing emitter points powered by a remote highvoltage power unit.
