PowerTreat Bare Roll Electrode
Our PowerTreat Electrode Used In Our PowerHouse Bare Roll Treater Stations Deliver Superior Durability, Effectiveness, and Efficiency
The approach we offer in our conductive treater station design is innovative and highly effective.
Our engineers have developed a new revolutionary electrode that utilizes a molded silicone compound insulator mounted to an aluminum conductor. The PowerTreat electrode can be shaped to conform to the diameter of the treater roll, insulating the discharge area of the conductor. Because the electrode assembly uses our standard aluminum support system, weight or heat does not compromise its structural integrity and durability. Therefore, our PowerTreat electrode is not limited in its length.
The PowerHouse Bare Roll treater station requires no special electrode cooling system. The normal exhaust system airflow is sufficient. This means you won’t need to spend valuable time keeping the cooling system unobstructed. Plus, the potential cost of replacing damaged electrodes, distorted by overheating is eliminated.
Dispersion of the corona discharge over a larger surface area will increase the life of the PowerTreat electrode. The wider discharge area eliminates the need for multiple electrode tubes in various high density applications.
The unbreakable molded electrode is normally more effective in high watt density applications. With dielectric qualities equal to or better than ceramic, our PowerTreat electrode can provide you the performance of shoe electrodes.
Treating metalized films, foils, and conductive materials – primarily in printing and laminating applications – our PowerTreat electrode is the most effective conductive electrode you’ll find today. The PowerTreat electrodes eliminate the stringent cooling airflow requirements of ceramic tube electrodes.
Other Advantages of the PowerTreat electrode
- Electrodes can be mounted in most existing treater stations.
- Because the electrode conductor and support are aluminum, the electrode assemblies are lighter than steel electrodes.
- Quartz and ceramic electrodes have always been limited in their corona treatment performance due to their shape and the inherent narrow discharge zone. They are also very susceptible to breakage.
