Managing static

26/11/2019 at 18:09

i’ve just finished building my
shredder and have completed some small shredding runs. The small plastic flakes generate lots of static electricity, making them stick to the machine and anything surrounding it. This makes it difficult to collect the flakes into a bucket and keep the workspace clean.

Does anyone have advice for managing or reducing the static generated while shredding?

Were you able to find a solution to reduce or dissipate the static charge.  I am having a similar issue.

Not really. I have since painted my shredder frame which has reduced the build-up some, but it takes quite a bit of brushing/ compressed air to get it clean between runs.
