In situations where paint resistivity is low, as for waterborne paints, it is not possible to use conventional electrostatic painting systems without isolating the sprayer, the fluid-handling system, and the paint containers. An alternate technique is to apply high voltage to the workpiece and ground the sprayer. The authors evaluate the electrical characteristics of such a system and compare them to those of the conventional electrostatic spraying system. It is shown that a charged-workpiece… CONTINUE READING
