CED Paint conductivity is dropping/rising
A discussion started in 2006 but continuing through 20202006
Q. If conductivity of CED bath is reduced up to 400 microsiemens and pH is 6.2 , then what happens in the coating? Then how can I increase conductivity?
My CED bath level is reduced daily after some processing of articles. How can we maintain bath level? (NVM % is within the limit)

A. At a pH of 6.2 you should have a paint kick-out!
Simply add the pH controller supplied by the paint supplier and your pH will fall within range and the conductivity will go up.
Your paint supplier should be able to help you on that.

Thank you Mr. Gurvin, but my pH is within the limit.Naresh Shudra [returning]

Q. Hi everybody.
I've experienced almost the same issue lately!
Although all CED bath parameters have been in the range as below, the conductivity of CED paint gradually decreased from 1600 to around 1000 value.
Moreover, we couldn't find any UF drainage or bacteria attack!
Your response would be highly appreciated :)

A. Your MEQ & pH value are not in proportion. Please check again.Avnash Vidhate

Q. My name is Thomas and I've been having problems with high conductivity in my PPG paint bath can you please tell me what I must do to get a lower conductivity level?Thomas Hudson

A. Send some ultrafilter permeate to drain and make up the volume with water. This may take several days to get back into range. Most importantly - find the source of the high conductivity. (i.e. drag in from pretreatment.)Dan Mack
