Generally, measure those processes and materials that you suspect of generating electrostatic potentials or charge: personnel moving in the area, conveyor systems, monitors, insulators, carts, etc.
What makes the MartinLogan different from other electrostatic designs is its familiar opaque, curved, MicroPerf[TM] stator design.
While many bacteria and viruses fall within HEPA and electrostatic capture ranges, some pathogens that are capable of movement might be able to pass through the filter media, and the mucilaginous coatings of some bacteria might affect the filter's ability to trap them.
The system was designed to transfer a strong negative electrostatic charge to dust and microorganisms in an enclosed space and collect the charged particles on grounded plates or room surfaces.
With smaller design geometry, damage can occur even without physical contact and at low levels of electrostatic exposure, causing greater wafer yield loss, process downtime and photomask replacement costs.
For more than 50 years, Monroe's electrostatic detection and measurement instrumentation has led in technology and quality, serving specific areas of testing and ongoing monitoring of ionisation systems across a variety of applications.
With the advantages of high dusting efficiency, convenience management, low fault rate, and strong adaptability, the electrostatic precipitator (ESP) is widely applied for industrial flue gas treatment in nonferrous metals, metallurgy, construction materials, coal, petrochemicals, and electricity [1-6].
The PolarDry Electrostatic Spray Dryer uses electrostatic technology, rather than heated drying gas, for microencapsulation.
Adding an electrostatic spray applicator, designed to offer high spray performance and quality, will increase transfer efficiency, lowering costs even further.
The use of fictitious magnetic charges for the calculation of magnetostatic fields in magnetized media is associated with the development of ideas about the nature of magnetic phenomena and is based on the electrostatic analogy of the polarization of dielectrics and magnets [1].
This modified model gives rise to a random walk behavior of the electrostatic field that can be analyzed as a Markovian stochastic process.
