JemmStat™ Anti-Static Nylon Brushes are composed of conductive nylon fibers mounted in an anodized aluminum holder. The soft nylon fibers make them ideal for use on films and foils. They are available in lengths of 6", 12", 18", 24", 30", 36", 48" and 60" with custom lengths available.
Anti-Static Brush Installation & Maintenance Instructions
Mount the JemmStat™ Anti-Static Brush approximately 1/8” to ¼” above or below the material or substrate to be neutralized. The brush can be easily mounted utilizing the mounting hole provided in the holder.
The JemmStat™ Anti-Static Brush must be grounded. A good ground can be achieved by mounting the bar directly to a metal part of a grounded machine frame or by running a separate copper ground wire to either end of the JemmStat™ Anti-Static Brush and an established electrical ground, such as an electrical box, conduit, etc.
Locate the JemmStat™ Anti-Static Brush on the machine area, where static electricity is generated. You may need a JemmStat™ Static Meter to help identify these areas. A typical installation would be located 3” to 6” from the break-away point where the material being processed separates from the rollers, grippers, or other points of static generation.
A trial and error method of locating the most effective position can be achieved by attaching a ground wire to one end of the JemmStat™ Anti-Static Brush, and temporarily mounting the brush above the material in several different positions until the most effective position is identified.
When the JemmStat™ Anti-Static Brush has been badly contaminated by adhesives, inks, dirt, etc, it should be replaced in order to maintain maximum effectiveness.
