Effect of air ionisation on static electricity neutralisation


Neutralisation of static electricity via ionisation is now a well established technology in industries like the disk drive, the semiconductor and the flat panel industry (Gefter, 2001).


Fine airborne particles have dramatic consequences on the electronic product quality if their surfaces are not electrically neutralized. Negative air ions are able to electrically neutralize these surfaces. Our HT-NS system, introduced in a Nokia mobile phone manufacturing plant, has helped to prevent 18% product waste.
