A Study of Energy Savings In Corona Treatment of Packaging Films

During 2005, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSEDRA) funded a multi-client study of the electrical energy utilization of the corona treatment process. The purpose of the study was to detail the energy saving (up to 40% reported) previously found with replacement glass-coated dielectric rolls used in corona treaters.

Factors Affecting Treater Roll Durability

The film manufacturing and converting industry creates an environment that is very tough on rollers and roller coverings. The continued drive for increased productivity, faster line speeds, and improved quality places added stress and wear on rollers and roller surfaces.
