How does the Zerostat 3 work?

How does the Zerostat 3 work?

The Zero stat works by flooding the front of the gun with positive ions (actuated by the SLOW squeeze of the trigger), then negative ions (actuated by the SLOW release of the trigger), therefore leaving the surface of the target with a net 0 charge (neither attracting dust nor repelling).

How long does a Zerostat last?

The Zerostat is a stand-alone device. Milty says that the Zerostrat should last for around 50,000 trigger operations. Hence, this tool will remain useful for many years, if not decades.

How do you use Zerostat on records?

Hold the Zerostat within 12″ (30.5 cm) of the surface or object to be treated. Squeeze the trigger slowly for about two seconds, to emit a stream of positive ionized air over the surface of the object. As the trigger is slowly released, a negative show of air ions is produced resulting in static neutralization.

How do you use a zero stat gun?

Why is my vinyl Staticky?

Everything from the vinyl material itself, to the process of spinning a record; even pulling the record from its sleeve will contribute to static build up over time. Once a record becomes positively charged, it will attract dust and dirt onto the playing surface, causing pops and clicks.

What is a anti-static gun?

Milty Zerostat 3 Anti-Static Gun removes static electricity from the surface of any LP, perfect for record cleaning. A slow squeeze of the Zerostat “trigger” releases a steady stream of ions, which removes the built-up static charge on the surface of an LP instantly.

How does the Milty zerostat 3 work?

The Milty Zerostat 3 antistatic gun needs no batteries or electrical supply nor does it contain any radioactive components. It contains a piezoelectric device. Your slow squeezing action creates 1-4 clicks each time you squeeze and release the trigger slowly.

Who uses the zerostat gun?

And the Zerostat gun finds wide use among those who possess and maintain phonograph record collections. We have been surprised to find that the Milty Zerostat 3 is more popular with scientific research laboratories than with LP enthusiasts!

Is the zerostat 3 safe?

The Zerostat 3 is designed to be a disposable product. It is not built to be taken apart and there are not replacement parts. Is it safe? The Zerostat is “safe” but we would still advise keeping it out of the reach of children who could easily see it as a toy.

How many times can a zerostat 3 trigger be squeezed?

One can reasonably expect on the order of 10,000 such “squeeze cycles” during the lifetime of a Zerostat 3 unit, although the typical Zerostat 3 will last much longer, sometimes as long as up to 50,000 trigger squeezes. The Zerostat 3 needs no batteries or electrical supply nor does it contain any radioactive components.
