The second generation Pulse Power enables coaters to more readily apply powder in difficult Faraday Cage areas across a variety of applications.

Parker Ionics’ “Advanced Corona Charging Technology” uses the company’s Pulse Power II in the GX8500 series of powder coating hand gun units. The second generation Pulse Power enables coaters to more readily apply powder in difficult Faraday Cage areas across a variety of applications, the company says. Pulse Power II provides constant gun current, even if the distance between the gun and part varies. The result is improved corner penetration, ease in recoating or base/top coat combinations, smoother coating films and uniform film thickness. The new digital control system allows for gun voltage, current output, and air flow to be changed independently along with memorization of up to 250 coating recipes for quick transitions between different part styles. The series offers a range of nozzles and accessories to meet the demands of the most difficult applications.
