Abstract

A mounting configuration for a dielectric-coatedwire corotron is shown in the figure, Two dielectric-coated wires 2 are supported along their length by a tube 3, which can be glass or other material impervious to corona attack, The wires are seated in grooves etched along the length of tube 3 and secured in place by means of epoxy or 1ow-melt glue which partially fill the grooves, This configuration provides for minimal stress on the wires and also for illumination through the glass tubing. The wires are excited by a high voltage AC source and a counter (or shield) electrode may be added at the users discretion,
