At ITMA 2019, in stand H8.1, booth A201, Meech—a leading manufacturer of static control equipment, web cleaning systems and energy efficient compressed air technology—will display static and cleaning-related issues in textile production.
Meech will also be displaying its full range of Static EX (hazardous areas) ionising products. Designed for places where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to the presence of flammable materials, the Meech EX range is well suited to a wide range of textile applications, given the highly flammable nature of many synthetic fibres. Electrical equipment installed in such locations must be specially designed and tested to ensure its suitability. The Meech EX range has been comprehensively tested to meet these rigorous safety requirements.
Said Adam Battrick, Sales Director, Meech: “Static can pose challenges to any textile manufacturer. But where synthetic fibres are concerned its effect is even greater, so as synthetic textiles continue to grow as a proportion of the overall market, the need for more robust static control solutions will grow with them. Furthermore, with textile technology leading to an ever-increasing variety of wearable technology applications, the potential for static to arise and cause significant problems is greater still. Meech’s expertise in managing static-related issues in production environments is unrivalled and we’re delighted to be sharing some of the many solutions we have developed over the years at ITMA this year.”
“One of Meech’s most popular tools to combat static-related problems is its range of Hyperion pulsed DC ionising bars, including the 924s, 924IPS, 960IPS and 971IPS–30kV, and the Hyperion 233v4 Pulsed DC Controller; all of which will be on display this month in Barcelona. This industry-leading range provides short, medium and long-distance static elimination and can be installed quickly and easily onto textile manufacturing lines. Furthermore, with Meech’s SmartControl, connected Hyperion devices can be altered quickly and easily with remote monitoring and control through mobile devices which allows operators to make alterations and adjustment to up to six static control devices, wherever they are,” Battrick added.
