Gen4 Ion Air Cannon

Quiet, efficient, concentrated flow of ionized air removes static and dust!

What is the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon?

EXAIR's Gen4 Ion Air Cannon neutralizes static electricity and cleans at distances up to 15' (4.6m) with No Moving Parts. It is ideal for those hard to reach spaces or confined areas that require a concentrated flow of static elminating ions. With an optional pressure regulator, the air volume and velocity are infinitely adjustable over a wide range, for light to heavy applications.

Why The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon?

The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon will maximize ionized airflow while minimizing compressed air consumption. A small amount of compressed air is used to entrain a high volume flow of surrounding air. This combined stream is ionized by an emitter point (shockless) and delivered to the charged surface. A hose or tube can be connected to the air intake of the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon to draw quality air from another area. It requires only 10 PSIG (0.7 BAR) for most applications.

The compact design saves bench space and allows mounting in confined areas. The sturdy stand is pre-drilled and can be walll, bench or machine mounted. It incorporates a swivel adjustment for directing the airflow.

EXAIR's EFC is an Electronic Flow Control for compressed air. For production lines, it can sense when no part is present and will automatically turn off the compressed air to the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon until the next part moves into position.

How The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon Works?

The Gen4 Ion Air Cannon incorporates a Super Air Amplifier* and ionizing collar, energized by a power supply. A small amount of compressed air is injected into the barrel of the cannon (1) inducing a high volume flow of surrounding air to flow through it (2). A replaceable emitter point at the discharge end of the cannon (3) ionizes the entire airstream. The result is a high volume, conical flow of ionized air (4) capable of eliminating static and cleaning at distances up to 15 feet (4.6m). Because more than 90% of the ionized air is induced, the Gen4 Ion Air Cannon produces maximum airflow at minimum air consumption.
