Electrostatic spray is a common component of a number of industrial processes and applications. Among these many uses are in the electronics field, where it is widely used for static testing of electronic components. It is also used as an anti-static discharge (ASD) system for protecting computers, machinery, and other items from damage due to static charge.
An electrostatic spray system is simply a device that uses an electrical charge to provide a coating of either static charge or electrodial flow for testing and/or measuring the resistance to the passage of a current. The electrostatic spray unit is normally attached to the equipment being tested or measured using a cord or wire. The electrostatic spray unit is usually designed to have a flat surface and be mounted on a rigid basis such as a vibration mount or a clamp. Some of these units are also designed with a wrap around capability to allow for quick attachment to a flexible wire that is being measured. In this article, we will discuss some basic features of this system and how it is used.
As described in the electrostatic spray application guide, the testing procedure begins by wrapping a 10″ piece of non-metallic cable with a rubber or plastic sleeve and feeding the wire through the cable to the unit. The cable is then fastened securely to a short conducting cord. One end of the cable is attached to the measuring fixture while the other end is attached to a small meter reader. For the purpose of safety, two asae are placed inside the cable to allow for a two-day mortality period. This period will allow the meter reader to read the charge at regular intervals during the two-day testing period.
Two types of electrostatic spray systems are available. The first type is the whitefly management system. This system utilizes high voltage, low amperage electricity supplied by uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) to provide a steady supply of charge to the electrodes. An uninterruptible power supply consists of three different power supplies, including the UPS itself, the battery and the U.S. power grid.
The second type of system is the bouse type. Buses are specially designed to mix the cotton and the foam. The process of mixing the two requires a high frequency device that generates a series of alternating current (AC). The AC is then sent to the nozzle, which is used to apply the charge to the electrodes.
It has been found that there are differences in the performance of both types of nozzles. While the nozzles that utilize high frequency electricity are more efficient at generating charge, they also generate a large amount of heat when operating. This heat can shorten the life of the electrodes and may affect the efficiency with which the system removes sulfuric and organic deposits.
Many homeowners choose to spray their homes with electrostatic paint. The primary reason is to prevent deterioration caused by moisture absorption. Some homeowners who do not wish to have the physical effort required to apply the paint on their own find it easier to hire a professional. With the help of a professional, homeowners will be able to choose from a variety of paint formulations that are designed to withstand the treatment performed during electrostatic spray guns. Once the paint has been applied, it must be allowed to dry before the homeowner can start enjoying the beauty of his or her home.
Both of these systems share some common characteristics. They both use a high frequency source that is capable of inflicting tremendous heat when operational. There are differences, however, between the two systems. In electrostatic painting, a porous material is sprayed on the surface to be treated. This porous material is made of a cotton material or a similar fabric like acrylic. The cotton is able to absorb the heat generated in the machine while the material contained within the porous material is not affected.
