AC Corona Ionization

Ionizers are made up of either a single emitter point (guns) or multiple emitter points (blowers). An emitter point is a metal needle that conducts charge.

On the Elimstat Gun, a high voltage is applied to a single emitter point that cycles between negative and positive at alternating current’s line frequency (50/60 Hz).

The voltage applied to the emitter point creates an electric field or “corona” around it. This corona of ions then interacts with electrons in nearby air molecules as air is blown through the gun towards the target.

ion

The air molecules coming from the Elimstat Gun’s emitter point attract and push particulate matter off the target, as well as restoring electrical balance to it so that it is not charged positively or negatively.

ESD and ESA

When ionized air comes into contact with particulate matter it attracts or pushes particles and static off of the object you are trying to protect from electrostatic discharge (ESD) or cross contamination from electrostatic attraction (ESA).

Static electricity causes primarily two problems.

The first is the discharge of electricity onto a component that zaps it. Known as ESD, electrostatic discharge can alter the functioning of electronic circuits permanently.

ESD

The second problem caused by static is that a charged object can attract particulate matter onto it. Known as ESA, electrostatic attraction can cause the charged object to become contaminated and no longer usable.

sub visible particles

In fact, ionization is increasingly being used inside clean rooms as more engineers realize that air filtration alone does not ensure the elimination of particulate contamination from subvisible particles (less than 25 microns).

On the Elimstat Gun, a .01 micron filter is placed at the exit of the gun that meets ISO 14644-1 Class 5 and 209E Class 100 Cleanroom standards.

Ionization is needed when you have insulators that hold static, and / or conductors that are not grounded.

Insulators and Isolated Conductors

Insulators that are well known are wood, rugs, and plastic.

Conductors that are well known are carbon, metals, and humans.

Insulators

Insulators are charged by triboelectrification or rubbing against other materials where electrons are exchanged resulting in the creation of a charge. Every time you are walking across a surface that is insulative you are building up charge on yourself.

conductors

Conductors can be charged by triboelectrification (contact and separation resulting in an exchange of electrons), induction (being in proximity to an electric field), or conduction (direct contact with a charged object.)

When a conductor is not, grounded, it is considered an “isolated charged conductor”.
