Now even more convenient, with quick-mount stand!

Samples or containers that easily become electrostatically charged can cause instability in balance measurement values due to static electricity. The Shimadzu STABLO-EX ionizer uses an AC corona discharge to generate ions with good ion balance, which are emitted from the emission port to quickly reduce the static charge on samples and containers. The electrodes, which are subject to high voltages, are located safely inside the unit, out of operator’s reach. The STABLO-EX is especially useful for improving measurement stability when measuring extra small samples (particularly for measurements using an analytical balance) or samples that easily become electrostatically charged.


Reliably Removes Charge

Because AC ionization provides good ion balance, it…
• Does not cause reverse charge
• Can remove charge from large areas

Air Flow Can be Switched ON/OFF.
Air flow can be switched OFF to remove charge from powders and other easily scattered samples.

Compact Design Requires Minimal Space
Quick-mount stand allows either on-stand or hand-held use.

Stable Performance Over Long Periods
Due to AC ionization, there is no worry of the ion balance changing as electrodes deteriorate over time.

Can Be Used at Any Angle or in Confined Spaces


Due to Static Electricity…

Measurement values can fluctuate or gradually change


Repeatability of measurement values is poor



Display values are stable but inaccurate



STABLO-EX is very effective for symptoms such as these.

How Static Electricity is Removed


How Static Electricity is Removed

If the ionizer supplies a poor balance between positive and negative ions, it could prevent achieving a neutral charge or cause a reverse charge.


Good Ion Balance Using AC Ionization

AC Ionization: AC current is applied to an emitter probe to emit both positive and negative ions in equal numbers from a single electrode.
DC Ionization: Positive and negative direct currents are applied to two electrodes to emit positive and negative ions, respectively, from each electrode. If electrodes are separated, it limits the charge removal range. Also, once the emitter probes begin deteriorating, ion balance becomes worse.
