Press Release Summary:
Offering alternative to ionized compressed air and water rinsing systems, Ionized Air System cleans and removes static from plastics, cans, bottles, and other product surfaces. Air is accelerated through 15,000 rpm centrifugal blower, filtered and ionized, and directed onto or into target product via targeted nozzles. By neutralizing static charge that causes dirt to cling to products, ionized air releases dirt and particulates and leaves clean surface.
Original Press Release:
Paxton's Ionized Air System Raises the Bar on Air Rinsing and Static Removal
More energy efficient static elimination aids bottling, canning, thermoforming and other manufacturing and packaging processes
Cincinnati, OH -- Paxton Products, an ITW company, announces a major step forward in industrial static elimination and air rinsing solutions with the release of the Paxton Ionized Air System. The Ionized Air System offers manufacturers a more effective and cost efficient alternative to ionized compressed air and water rinsing systems, when static removal is needed.
Until Paxton’s development of this new system, many manufacturers were forced to rely on expensive compressed air or water rinsing systems. Paxton’s Ionized Air System uses 80% less energy than compressed air cleaning products. The Ionized Air System offers enhanced durability and lower maintenance compared to externally-mounted ionizing bars. Paxton’s Ionized Air System also enables manufacturers to avoid the water, filtration and disposal costs associated with water rinsing systems.
Paxton’s Ionized Air System removes dust and particulates that are present in even the cleanest industrial environment. This innovative new system first accelerates air through a high-efficiency 15,000 rpm centrifugal blower. The high velocity air is filtered and ionized, and then directed onto or into the target product through targeted nozzles. The ionized air neutralizes the static charge that causes dirt to cling to products, releasing the dirt and particulates and leaving a clean surface. Paxton’s Ionized Air System thoroughly cleans and removes static from plastics, cans, bottles and other product surfaces.
Paxton’s patent-pending new technology has been successfully field-tested in several high-volume food and beverage manufacturing environments for globally recognized brands, including Pepsi. The unique design of the Paxton Ionized Air System increases performance while reducing maintenance.
Cincinnati-based Paxton Products is a division of the Fortune 200 firm Illinois Tool Works (ITW). Paxton created the first high performance supercharger in the 1950s, enabling the racing industry to utilize engine speed and performance. During the 1970s energy crisis, Paxton reconfigured this air delivery technology for commercial purposes, creating the first centrifugal blower for industrial applications. Paxton has continued to keep pace with the air product needs of commercial and industrial facilities.
