Eltex Elektrostatik GmbH (Weil am Rhein, Germany), a leading supplier of solutions for static electricity, focuses its tradeshow appearance at ICE Europe, which takes place from 21 to 23 March in Munich, Germany, on the topics efficiency and increased performance. Under the motto “Experienced at innovation – performance for tomorrow” several novelties will be showcased.

One of the brand new products is the patented Eltex flexION R60 AC discharging electrode with free-standing, air-supported spring tip. It reaches a very high passive discharge, which enables active operation even at low AC voltages. In order to increase the scope, the spring tip is optionally flooded with a low amount of air. This also serves as an additional tool for the continuous cleaning of the emission tip. The aluminium profile of the electrode is equipped with a highly insulating, mechanically robust layer, which causes a significant increase of ion production in combination with the free-standing spring tip.

According to Eltex, flexION R60 boasts outstanding discharging results at low and very high speeds as well as small distances to the material to be discharged, but also at wider discharges. This is why the electrode is claimed to be the only one in the world that can be used in different geometrical situations.
