Electrostatic charges can cause a number of issues during textile production, such as dust attraction, shocks, sparks etc. These in turn can lead to potentially hazardous situations due to discomfort to operators and even fires, as well as annoyances such as frequent interruptions in production due to stoppages, reduced sliver/yarn evenness, quality issues on yarns and fabric etc. Hence, such bothersome electrostatic charges need to be neutralised. To address these problems, Valence offers many solutions for measurement and removal of static charges.
