The winter months bring a buildup of Holiday Cheer - along with a buildup of dry air and the ensuing static electricity. More than a simple shock, static electricity challenges manufacturing companies and plants during the winter months, particularly in their packaging and labeling processes where plastic surfaces hold a high resistance to electricity and work as insulators, causing static buildups.  Static may prevent label liners from neatly respooling or cause them to stick to each other and other equipment, damaging labels or disrupting the application process. In some cases, accumulation of static electricity can cause anywhere from a light shock to electrical sparks and even risk of a fire. For this reason, tools that can kill or neutralize static, like Vortec’s ionizing Air Knives, are increasingly important in the winter months.

Ionizing Air Knife Removes Static GraphicStatic electricity is a common problem that affects a variety of industries and manufacturers around the world. Anyone from packaging plants, bottling facilities and plastic producers need to control and reduce static electricity. As these industries continue to increase the speed of their lines and move towards more synthetic materials, all to increase production and decrease cost, the effects of static electricity greatly increase. This leads to a number of quality, productivity and safety issues, anything from dust contamination to potential fire hazards.

Plastic, and many other insulators, can build up a static charge creating numerous inefficiencies for manufacturers. If not taken care of, static electricity can cause small particles to adhere to packaged goods, causing sealing and contamination problems during the packaging or labeling process. The best way to continue to maintain productivity is to ensure that the static (and subsequently the small particles) is removed before the packaging or labeling occurs.

At United Airlines’ Technical Operations facility in Orland, FL, Bob Kosanke supervises over 550 mechanics. As Aircraft Maintenance Supervisor, Kosanke bears responsibility for handling a rigorous series of checks each airplane must pass before being approved to return to flight rotation. One of the tools these aviation mechanics rely on to move the planes efficiently through the maintenance process is Vortec’s Dual-Force Vac Drum Pump.
