Electrostatic lubrication system

Equipment Snapshot: Accujet by Spraying Systems Co. introduces a new way to apply can-neck lubrication using electrostatic technology. The Neckerlube System features precise, high-transfer efficiency designed to end product contamination, improve quality and increase productivity, according to the company. The system is noncontact, as the electrostatic charge attracts the heated lubricant to exactly the location needed. Each nozzle can be individually actuated depending on the amount of lubricant/wax needed to match line speed. The closed system virtually eliminates overspray, says the company, creating a safer work environment for operators, while minimizing cleanup and reduces potential for product contamination. Automatic spray control self-adjusts for line speed changes to maximize production time.
