The Kinetronics© KineStat Electric (KSE) is a compact, low cost, static dissipative film cleaner. Film is cleaned as it passes through four StaticWisk TMconductive brushes and filtered air is gently blown across the film. The soft brushes dissipate any static charge and whisk dust and lint off the film.
Constructed of durable steel and top quality components, the KSE will provide years of trouble free operation. KSE brushes are easily removed for routine cleaning. The mounting system provides easy, secure, attachment to printers.
The KSE is available in four sizes; KSE-035 for 35mm, KSE-070 for cleaning 35mm, 120, and 70mm, the KSE-100 for cleaning up to 4 x 5".
Thousands of Kinetronics film cleaners are in daily use throughout the world. They have been proven to provide top quality film cleaning for minilabs and digital scanning. KSE cleaners are sold with a two-year warranty.
You should wear cotton gloves whe cleaning film material for securely pulling the film strips through the brushes.

One of these filters is attached to the back of the fan in each KineStat Electric film cleaning device for binding dust particles. If this filter is too dirty the effect of the fan decreases and dust will no longer be blown away effectively. The exchange of the filter becomes necessary.
Before cleaning a film strip with an anti-static brush we recommend you to remove rough dust from the film strip using compressed air. Otherwise it might happen that rough dust particles get stuck at the anti static brush and will be transferred to the next film strip.
When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
