Many tare vessels, especially plastic ones, are prone to static charging, which can negatively influence weighing results. Powdery samples tend to be scattered or stick to the tare container due to static electricity. If the sample is toxic or harmful, this could be dangerous to the operator.
How can I eliminate electrostatic charges from my samples and vessels?
Many samples, especially dry powders, are very susceptible to static and therefore, difficult to weigh. Electrostatically charged samples or vessels may lead to inaccurate results. Antistatic kits of METTLER TOLEDO immediately neutralize electrostatically charged samples and containers. Weighing results are stable and correct.
What antistatic solutions does METTLER TOLEDO offer?
METTLER TOLEDO offers a variety of antistatic kits and single components. You can choose between universal antistatic kits, including a large U-electrode and universal power supply or a compact ionizer with a stand, or single electrodes and ionizers to meet your individual requirements.

Universal AntiStatic kit:
- The AntiStatic kits generate positive and negative ions which discharge statically charged
samples or tare containers within a few seconds.
- The Antistatic kits does not generate any air turbulence in the weighing chamber and therefore
does not swirl samples as may be the case with other products available in the market
- No additional operating steps are necessary
The Universal AntiStatic kit can be used with practically all balances and weighing substances. The weighing sample or container is automatically discharged by passing it through the ionizer when the balance is being loaded.
