Anti-static solutions (ionisation etc)
« on: July 27, 2020, 04:20:27 AM »
Hi all,

I've got some static problems with powdery compounds (they go flying everywhere) and crucibles (which are giving false weights). Wondering if anybody's used any of the anti-static ionising bizzos, I saw one recommended on curly arrow (site) but it was certainly a more high-end one, has anyone had success with the cheaper options out there? Also happy just to hear some reviews.

Thanks in advance.

Hi shchavel,

Thanks for the reply. The MT U-type kit were just the thing I saw on curly arrow. Do they do they job alright in your experience? As long as they actually work I can justify the expense, but I'd hate to fork out $5000 AUD for it to fail me (can't imagine my supervisor would be too pleased either).

Thanks again :).

Hello, Hacktacular!
We've been using U-type kit's for 3 years. They work perfect - simple and sure. It's really more comfortable, than table ionizers with ventilators, because U-type don't produce wind.
Sometomes my colleague forget to turn off them for night, but they still well-working.

Thanks very much for that, it's sure to beat my effort of a bit of speaker wire wrapped around the gas lines to make a brush!

All the best,

Hacktacular.
