Exair’s new Ion air gun removes static electricity, contaminants and dust from parts prior to labeling, assembly, packaging, painting or finishing. New design features include a metal-armored, high-voltage cable to protect against abrasion and cuts; a replaceable emitter point; integrated ground connection; and electromagnetic shielding. The shockless air gun neutralizes static electricity and cleans at distances ranging to 15 ft. (4.6 m).

The air gun provides 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 energized emitter at the discharge end fills the entire airstream with positive and negative ions capable of neutralizing high-static charges in a fraction of a second. An optional regulator allows infinite adjustment of the air volume and velocity.

A comfortable grip and hand position enables hours of continuous use without fatigue, the company says. Additionally, the air gun is quiet, lightweight and features a hanger hook for easy storage. The 10-ft. shielded power cable is flexible and designed for rugged use. A new selectable voltage power supply has been designed to operate the air gun.

    In an effort to prevent field paint failures, OEMs can no longer accept parts with the oxide buildup. A mechanical means of removal such as hand buffing or grit blasting is commonly practiced. However, these time-consuming and often labor-intensive processes can represent a substantial expense, and they can also introduce inconsistencies.

    Rust and corrosion can be problematic when working with cold rolled steel (CRS). Despite even the most heroic preventive measures, manufacturers report troublesome, rusty parts that can be attributed to seasonal humidity, being located near bodies of salt water, long-term indoor storage, unprotected shipping methods, condensation and coolant residues.
