The Zerostat is particularly effective against LPs that, having been played, are reluctant to come up off of the platter without a struggle (and wind up making that crackly sound that means the LP is attracting every piece of dust within a five-mile radius). The solution? At the end of playing a side, simply "zap" the LP with the Zerostat and, voila!, off it comes with no hassle.

Product Description

Details

The Zerostat is particularly effective against LPs that, having been played, are reluctant to come up off of the platter without a struggle (and wind up making that crackly sound that means the LP is attracting every piece of dust within a five-mile radius). The solution? At the end of playing a side, simply "zap" the LP with the Zerostat and, voila!, off it comes with no hassle.

Operation is simple: point the gun at the object you want de-staticised and SLOWLY pull the trigger. If you hear any "clicks" you've pulled it too fast. Whatever you do, DON'T press the "muzzle" against any part of your body and squeeze the trigger. It really hurts!

This amazing little device known as the Zerostat Antistatic Gun is an antistatic "generator" which has numerous applications in any microscopy laboratory. Just squeeze the "trigger" of the Zerostat and a steady stream of ions is released. The "magic" comes from two powerful piezoelectric crystals and a patented compression trigger. Originally developed for removing dust from "vinyl" or before that, normal "phonograph records", in later years the Zerostat antistatic gun was discovered to have great applicability for use in a photographic darkroom to remove dust from film and negatives. After that, a wider range of applications came into being when people running SEM labs found out that it was also idea for eliminating dust from critical samples or other critical surfaces when the dust attraction was being caused by electrostatic charge. Others have reported that certain insulating specimens, when treated this way, can actually be viewed (admittedly briefly) by SEM without the need to apply further coating.

In the laboratory, the Zerostat keeps film, glass, plasticware, and lenses dust and lint free. It also prevents charged particles from flying during weighting or transfer of particles. And the Zerostat gun finds wide use among those who possess and maintain phonograph record collections.

Each Zerostat unit is shipped with complete Use Instructions and also, information about a special "Test Procedure" to validate that the unit is working properly.

 

How it Works

Each Zerostat unit has a "two cycle" type of operation, when the trigger is squeezed, positive ions are generated and when the trigger is relaxed, negative ions flow. This means that it is possible to induce a charge on a neutral surface using the Zerostat. If the trigger is squeezed, and the Zerostat is then removed from the surface (and before allowing the trigger to return to its original position), a positive charge will be induced. Similarly, pointing the Zerostat at the surface only for the release of the trigger will induce a negative charge.

 

How much charge is given off?

Each squeeze of the trigger results in a discharge, when stated in units of charge, is 1.5 Coulumbs.

 

Where can it be used?

The Zerostat gun, theory, will work in any atmosphere, but we would add great caution before using it with or in proximity to flammable or combustible gases/liquids.

 

What does it weigh?

The net weight of the Zerostat gun is 135g (0.297 lbs) The unit is highly portable and easy to control and handle.

 

Give it a shot!

The Zerostats charging element should last many years, and its construction is rugged enough to survive any abus
