Specific features and user benefits of the VERSATreat™ system include 1) the ability to universally treat both conductive and non-conductive materials, 2) a new ceramic electrode with electrical and structural properties designed to maximize uptime, minimizing electrode failures, and increase treatment level, 3) a proprietary ceramic ground roll coating which provides nearly 100% greater dielectric strength than competitor ceramic coatings, 4) an exclusively-applied ceramic ground roll coating which significantly increases in-service life and MTBF, and 5) an industry-exclusive 3-year non-prorated ground roll warranty.
“Pillar's VERSATreat™ system is designed with leading-edge component materials to create the most reliable performance and operational safety for our customers” added Helker. “Our customers, and the customers of our competitors, want a corona treater which handles longer continuous running periods and which minimizes maintenance downtime. Pillar’s VERSATreat™ system corona treatment system meets these criteria while also providing economical operation.”
