Electrostatic spraying with water borne paint


2002

What kind of modification needed if switching from solvent based paint to water borne in electrostatic disc spraying?

I only can answer in general terms but probably a lot:
- Not all disc systems -esp. the older ones -are capable of spraying waterbourne paint,
- Insulate the whole paint feed system, including paint drums. If you work out of a central paint feed system a break system will be needed,
- Be sure of having sufficient safety distances to earthed parts,
- Check the HV-generator. At spraying waterbourne you will need more milliamp's current. Is your HV gen. capable of supplying this?

Good luck,
