Charge Decay Time

Charge Decay Time Analyser

The decay time for delibrated charged materials is measured with a charge decay time meter JCI155. This measurement provides a direct image of a process so that it looks like in an actual production situation. A material sample is charged under controlled conditions and the decay time and the current decay time curve is recorded, while one can measure the amount of charge-received, relative capacitance and peak charging value of the sample. Thus, for assessing the electrostatic properties of a variety of materials as:

  • Paper & package
  • Foils, films & plastics
  • Additives & coatings
  • Substrates
  • Clothing
  • etc
