Release date: 8/1/2001

MENOMONEE FALLS, WI - Converters looking to improve their extrusion coating and extrusion laminating processes will find Enercon's new O3zonator™ of great interest.

The O3zonator™ series features specially-optimized dielectrics and very high power densities for maximum performance. The systems are economical for budgets and accomodating for applications where space is at a premium.

These safe and efficient systems deliver high ozone concentrations at minimal power levels. Enercon's reliable and efficient power supply technology guarantees low energy consumption. The system comes ready to receive your 4-20 mADC process signal for optimal control. Enercon's engineering team can assist customers in selecting one of three O3zonator™ models to satisfy their production requirements.

Benefits of the O3zonator™

  • Adding ozone to extrusion processes allows for lower extrudate temperatures and the use of lower temperature resins (EVAs).
  • Reduced air gaps reduce "neck-in", translating into greater productivity.
  • Some companies have improved production speeds by as much as 50% by adding ozone to their process.
  • Ozone can also enhance product value by improving bonding characteristics, heat sealabilty, color and odor.
