Fibre material is combed off a Doffer cylinder, either by an oscillating comb or by a rotary brush. High static charges are generated on the fibres. Static causes the fibres to cling onto the delivery transfer conveyor, resulting in a poor transfer of the product to the next process.
Mounting a 915 ionising bar 200mm away from the comb neutralises the high static charges on the product and prevents the material from clinging onto the machine feed chutes or conveyor. The overall presentation of the finished product is also improved.
