ESD or Electrostatic Discharge or simply Static Electricity can be harmful in a static sensitive or Cleanroom environment causing losses in production. In order to prevent damage due to static electricity, ionizers are widely in addition to other ESD Control Products. A complete electrostatic management and prevention setup can prevent damages due to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Such complete setup must include comprehensive grounding of all conductors, elimination of insulators, specification and grounding of dissipative materials use of air ionizers.

So, What Does An Air Ionizer Do to Prevent / Eliminate Static Electricity?
Well, air ionizers add equal number of positive and negative ions to the air in order to provide charge carriers that increase the electrical conductivity of the air. Ionizers remove static charges from insulating materials and isolated conductors. Ionizers add additional protection to sensitive electronic devices and electronic components against ESD. It eliminates static charge that wrist straps, bench top ESD mats and even ESD flooring cannot do.
Types of Air Ionizers?
Today, air ionizers are widely used worldwide by manufacturers and servicing industry in the field of electronic components (mainly SMD Electronic Components) and PCB assembly and mobile phone repairing. There are two types of technologies used in air ionizers – Corona Discharge and Nutural Radiation (alpha). Both technologies are widely used and have their own advantages.
Bench Top Ionizer – These are basic ionizers that can be easily placed over the workbench (table) in a small work area. They can protect electronic devices from electrostatic damage that wrist straps, bench top ESD mats and even ESD flooring cannot eliminate.
- Overhead Ionizer – These ionizers can be hanged / fixed overhead preventing space.
- Ionizing Air Gun – These are a quick point and shoot way to neutralize static charges and clean the surface using ionized compressed air.
- Ionizing Nozzle – These are small ionizers that are very helpful to ionize hard to reach areas.
- Ionizing Bar – These ionizers use pulsed dual DC technology to quickly and efficiently control static charge in large work places.
