Varistat Benchtop Ionizer™

Mountable hands-free blower for static elimination at assembly stations and benchtop applications!

What is the Varistat Benchtop Ionizer?

The EXAIR Varistat Benchtop Ionizer is a blower style static eliminator designed to neutralise static charges on surfaces in demanding industrial settings where static can become troublesome. With the help of ionising technology, the Varistat supplies a constant stream of ion-balancing airflow to keep products static-free and particulate-free with hands-free operation and without the need for compressed air. Manually adjustable, the Varistat provides full coverage static elimination for workbenches, part assembly, web cleaning and more.

The Varistat can be easily mounted on equipment or placed on workbenches to assist with consistent static neutralisation. Capable of reducing 1000 volts to 100 volts in 0.8 seconds, the Varistat Ionizer removes surface static at a distance with incredible efficiency. The Varistat is engineered to fit various industrial applications and unique processes by offering customisable options such as an adjustable stand for mounting, selectable voltage, variable fan speed and adjustable polarity.

This static eliminator features ion producing emitter points and two 30 PPI replaceable foam filters to ensure optimal performance over extended periods of use. Also offering a built-in LED display that indicates proper function, the Varistat is designed with important safety features such as its current limiting circuit to protect against electrical hazards, and operating quietly and well below OSHA standards for noise exposure. The Varistat static eliminator is a reliable and effective solution for reducing static charges on sensitive products and protecting against static, dust, debris and other pesky particulate.

How the Varistat Benchtop Ionizer Works

After connecting the 115V or 230V power cable, plug into outlet (1) and check to make sure voltage selector switch (2) is set correctly; then activate power switch to activate static eliminating ions and airflow (3). A green light will indicate that power is turned on, improper functionality is indicated by a flashing red LED (4). Adjust fan speed with dial (5), and polarity with “+” and “-” buttons located on top (6). Adjust angle and height with knobs located on the side (7). Mounting bracket included for hands-free operation (8).
