KOLDING, Denmark—Vetaphone recently launched its new C8 corona treatment station, which is designed for substrates and applications where high corona power is required from a single unit.
The new unit is fitted with eight high-power and high-efficiency ceramic electrodes, allowing more corona power to be discharged from a compact modular system suitable for today’s demanding materials. In addition to being 24/7 corrosion proof, the C8 has enhanced maintenance-friendly features.
Explaining his company’s decision to develop and launch the C8, Vetaphone CEO Frank Eisby stated: “Converters’ needs for simple corona treatment are well catered for. We have designed the new C8 for the increasing number of demanding applications. Many of the new substrates have a more complex chemistry and consequently require higher power corona treatment to achieve the necessary dyne level. The C8 applies more corona power per square meter on the modern presses that are adapted to run these challenging materials.”
Having eight electrodes in the unit means the C8 can apply high power corona at high running speeds. It is available in web widths from 14.25-in. to 22.5-in., is capable of treating at speeds in excess of 985 fpm, and is both CE and UL approved.
