The accumulation of dirt and deposits on an ioniser (both discharge and charge) cannot be prevented in day-to-day industrial business – above all, the ionisers themselves can electrostatically attract dirt as a side effect. Unfortunately, these impurities reduce the performance of the ionisers, so regular cleaning is essential.
The cleaning interval depends on the duration and intensity of use and the operating conditions (dust etc.). We recommend to visually check the electrode at least every 2 months for contamination around and on the emitter tips and to clean them as a precaution. This also applies to ionisers which have a contamination warning – clean the ionisers before they no longer perform and go into “alarm”!
Adhering deposits can be wiped off with a cloth moistened with alcohol, isopropyl alcohol or white spirit (do not use aggressive solvents such as acetone or toluene). You can also clean the ionisers with a plastic brush and soapy water. For cleaning, please refer to the relevant operating instructions for the ionizer.
