Gen4 Ion Air Gun

Rugged ergonomic gun is a lightweight, effective spot cleaner.

The Model 8293 Gen4 Ion Air Gun neutralises and cleans plastic bottles prior to labelling.

What Is The Gen4 Ion Air Gun?

EXAIR’s Gen4 Ion Air Gun combines incredibly fast static decay rates with low compressed air consumption. It is the ideal way to remove static, contaminants and dust from three dimensional parts prior to assembly, packaging, painting or finishing. The Gen4 Ion Air Gun neutralises static electricity and cleans at distances up to 4.6m (15-feet).

The Gen4 Ion Air Gun induces surrounding airflow through the gun at a ratio of 5:1, minimising compressed air usage and maximising ionised airflow. The force can be adjusted from a “blast” to a “breeze”. A comfortable grip and hand position allows hours of continuous use without fatigue.

The Gen4 Ion Air Gun is quiet, lightweight and features a hanger hook for easy storage. The 3m (10-foot) armoured and electromagnetic shielded power cable is extremely flexible, designed for rugged industrial use.

How The Gen4 Ion Air Gun Works

The Gen4 Ion Air Gun incorporates a High Velocity Air Jet and electrically energised emitter point. A small amount of compressed air is injected into the air jet (1) inducing a high volume flow of surrounding air (2) to pass through it.

The emitter point (shockless) at the discharge end of the gun (3) ionises the entire airstream. The result is a high volume flow of ionised air (4) capable of neutralising high static charges in fractions of a second. An optional filter and regulator clean the compressed air and allows infinite adjustment of airflow and velocity.

Gen4 Power Supplies
Exair Model 7960 or 7961 Gen4 Power Supply (5 kv) is required for ioniser operation. Selectable voltage: for use with all Gen4 Static Eliminators

The Two and Four Outlet Gen4 Power Supplies have selectable voltage, which allows you to choose input voltages of 115VAC or 230VAC. The modular cable with electromagnetic shielding protects sensitive electronics against electromagnetic interference while easing connections and routing. An integrated fuse on the primary protects against voltage spikes.

Filters, Regulators, Valves & More

With proper filtration of dirt, moisture and oil from the compressed air supply, EXAIR compressed air products will operate for years with no maintenance required. Use a 5 micron or smaller filter separator on the compressed air supply. To prevent problems associated with oil, use a 0.03 micron or smaller oil removal filter on the compressed air supply. Pressure regulators permit easy selection of the operating pressure, providing infinite control of flow, force and air consumption.
