Tips for maximizing the life of your ceramic electrodes

Ceramic electrodes are used extensively in the converting industry for creating corona to improve the surface energy of conductive and nonconductive films and foils. These rugged electrodes are designed to survive the cauldron of heat, ozone and electrical discharge created by the corona treating process. To ensure the electrodes continue to perform as designed operations need to be aware of the importance of routine maintenance and conditions which can lead to premature electrode failure.

Enercon has created a new single page technical article on the keys to maximizing corona treating ceramic electrodes. Topics covered include proper maintenance, the importance of exhaust air flow, correct installation of electrode leads, causes of high voltage arcing, and ways to avoid physical shocks from splices.
