Low Cost Solutions To Static Electricity in Converting, Packaging, Textiles, Plastics, Printing, and Electronic Operations
Jemmco, LLC offers a full line of passive solutions and products designed to eliminate static electricity from industrial processes. The JemmStat line of passive anti-static solutions features all-copper Anti-Static Tinsel, JemmStat Tinsel Bars, JemmStat Anti-Static Brushes and JemmCord Anti-Static Cord.
JemmStat Tinsel is effective when used on moving webs and conveyors, eliminating both negative and positive charges from static laden product. JemmStat Tinsel works on winding, extruding, sheeting, slitting, coating, carding, slashing, wrapping and folding operations.
The higher the troubling static charges, the more efficiently the Anti-Static Tinsel works.
Benefits of Anti–Static Tinsel
Machine speeds can be increased by reducing sticking and jamming of product caused by static attraction of product to itself and the machine components. Product quality can be increased and rejects decreased by removing the attraction of airborne contaminants to product, improve ink impressions and paint and other coatings, allow product to wind, laminate & fold better. Eliminate personnel shock caused by high electro-static charges.
Positioning Anti-Static Tinsel for Best Results
Position anti-static tinsel 1/8” to 1/4” from static laden surface. Typically, the tinsel will be attached to the machine frame.
It is used most effectively when it does not touch the product or material to be neutralized. Note: JemmStat Tinsel Attachment Kit #5024 can be used for easy installation.
Place the anti-static tinsel just after the points of contact or separation of material from rolls, rollers or guides that generate static electricity. The tinsel should be grounded to machine frame or some know electrical ground.
In some cases, especially with when lower static charges are present, the anti-static tinsel may need to actually touch the surface to be neutralized. It can be draped or pulled tight across the material. Replace the anti-static tinsel when it becomes “dirty” with foreign substances, matted, or oxidized.
Anti-Static Tinsel Specifications
JemmStat anti-static tinsel is composed of ultra conductive 100% copper strands and it eliminates static through the “self-energizing” or inductive principle.
No external power source required.
The anti-static tinsel strands are flexible and soft to prevent scratching or other damage to products.
The core is made of multiple copper wires (not string) to ensure positive grounding and strength. The fine, sharply pointed copper strands provide greater static elimination. The conductive strands are interspersed to maximize effectiveness, but are not so dense as to make it easy to collect dust and dirt particles.
JemmStat anti-static tinsel resists breakage, matting and shedding. The anti-static tinsel's outside diameter is 1.25” (32mm), with a standard maximum length of 36 ft (12 meters).
JemmStat anti-static tinsel is packaged in standard boxes of 72 feet (23.6 meters), consisting of two 36-foot coils and cases of 12 boxes, for a total of 864 feet (283 meters).
