When considering which brand of Corona system to buy, do not forget the Total Cost of Ownership. Your buying price is only a part of the full package, so you must also take the following factors into account when deciding which system to buy.
Average life time
The Vetaphone Corona-Plus equipment is built of the best materials for production in hard environments; all parts are ozone resistant materials. The design is based on many worldwide installations from cold to hot areas as well as areas with low and high humidity. This together with the newest most reliable technology makes it perfect for 24 hour production and ensures a long average life time.
Corona treaters of lower quality often last for half the lifetime of a Vetaphone corona treater. The poorer materials used in the cheaper Corona treaters will cause more breaks downs and therefore increased production loss. As the cheaper Corona treaters must be exchanged sooner, this will not only add the costs of purchasing a new treater, but also the costs and trouble of dismounting the used Corona treater.
The Vetaphone Corona-Plus equipment is shipped pre-assembled for fast and easy turn-key installation. All parts are completely pre-assembled and pre-wired for direct installation at your premises. You only need to mechanical install an air/ozone outlet and electrical connection.
Down time costs
The high quality Corona-Plus equipment is built for high production security. The equipment is module built and designed in an open and highly accessible way so down time related to maintenance, repair or upgrades is kept to a minimum.
The entire encapsulated generator module can easily be accessed and quickly exchanged from Vetaphones world wide support centres if necessary.
The corona treater station is built with an electrode system in a removable pull-out/push-in Quick Change cartridge for easy maintenance and cleaning. This ensures minimum downtime and increased productivity due to the accessibility. Our larger Corona stations electrode assemblies are pneumatically activated and pivot away for easy access.
We offer global technical support and a support hotline to solve problems instantly.
Production loss due to line speed changes giving none uniform Corona treatment is prevented by the Vetaphone Automatic Power Density. The generator automatically raises and lowers the Corona power according to line speed so it provides the same Corona power per square meter material at all speeds. The generator will automatically start and stop together with the production line and inform in case of a need outside its capacity.
Vetaphone also provide an interface between the Corona system and your equipment, which will give you the possibility to adjust, read data and will give an alarm if there are any problems with the Corona.
Our new line of generators, iCorona, creates a production log which documents the Corona treatment data in your production.
Spare parts costs
The Vetaphone spare parts department (firstname.lastname@example.org) will quickly provide you with the original spare parts for longer life time at a fair price. Our equipment is well documented which makes wearing parts and spares parts easy to locate and easy to order. Vetaphone typically provide spare parts 20 years after the equipment is sold.
Energy costs – Green Energy
The Vetaphone generators uses our patented resonance circuit, which ensures that the maximum energy gets to the electrodes, and less energy is lost in heat in electrodes and in the electronics. This means that our equipments provide more dyne/kW.
