Electrostatic painting equipment allows the paint to "wrap" around the product being sprayed.
Electrostatic "wrap" is achieved by charging the paint with a static charge. Once charged, the paint being sprayed will be attracted to the nearest grounded object, and will disperse evenly over the entire surface. This results in a great reduction of overspray, thus saving paint. On many smaller pipes, tubes, etc. the painter does not have to spray the back side of the objects because the charged paint has "wrapped" completely around, thus saving time and material. To achieve all this, the Lemmer electrostatic uses a special multi-channel swirl nozzle. It creates a slow spiral fog which allows time for the paint to "wrap". Note: Due to the fine "fog" atomization, any air movement (wind or large fans) during spraying will have a negative affect on the "wrap". Also, optional flat spray nozzles are available for large surfaces.
The Lemmer electrostatic 5000 package brings the latest in electrostatic gun technology and design comfort to the industrial and commercial finishing shops where quality counts! The GM 5000 EAC gun fits comfortably into the operator's hand and is very lightweight (24.6 ounces) for better control of paint application. With the cascade design concept, voltage is generated at the gun, thus eliminating bulky high voltage cables. Its high efficiency charging system is variable up to 80 kV. Its non-turbine cascade design eliminates the possibility of vibration. A trigger mounted electrostatic on/off switch has been designed for operator convenience. Corrosion resistant wetted parts allow applications of chlorinated solvent thinned coatings (requires special supply pump). Excellent paint atomization with the multi-channel swirl nozzle, necessary for electrostatic spray application. This gun offers versatility, it can be used as an air-assisted airless or a straight airless system (up to 3625 psi).
