Static Control Systems from Meech of Witney Static Control Systems from Meech the Non Radioactive Approach

The radioactive substance Polonium 210 has been prominent in the news recently following reports that it was used to poison the Russian ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko. This naturally occurring radioactive material emits highly hazardous alpha particles and in high doses can damage human tissues and organs. In industry, Polonium 210 can be found in applications such as a heat source for satellite power supplies and also in some types of static control systems.

Whilst Polonium 210-based systems can provide effective neutralisation of static charge, their hazardous nature is such that special precautions must be taken; these can be both extremely onerous and costly.

However, Oxfordshire-based, Meech International, a world leading manufacturer and supplier of static control systems has developed its technology based on active electrical systems rather than radioactive materials. These systems are installed worldwide and are well proven in resolving problems of poor quality and productivity associated with uncontrolled static charge.

"Over the years we have been very successful in replacing existing radioactive ionisation systems installed in factories throughout the world." says Steve Pheasant, Sales and Marketing Director. "Many companies have found that the controls necessary in order to use radioactive systems safely have become too prohibitive and the effectiveness of modern non-radioactive systems can make the change-over an easy process."

Engineers at Meech are happy to answer any queries that companies may have regarding the use of Polonium 210 in static control systems and to suggest effective, safe alternatives.
