Electrostatic Guns

Electrostatic Guns

WAGNER’s electrostatic guns for manual automatic spray booth applications provide:

  • High application efficiency
  • Perfect finish
  • Good wrap-around

Electrostatic liquid application:

WAGNER’s electrostatic atomization processes are highly economical coating systems offering decisive advantages over conventional application techniques in many areas of industry.

Technology for any application:

Whether it’s a “manual operation” or a process controlled automatic application, WAGNER offers the right electrostatic gun for every material and every spray booth application.

High surface quality:

Due to the electrostatic charge (max. 80kV), the paint particles repel each other to produce an extremely fine atomization. The uniform spray jet generates a very homogeneous material application with an even coating, resulting in a particularly high quality finish.

Efficient coating:

The wrap-around effect results from a force field between the negatively charged paint particles and the grounded work piece. Both the front and rear of the work piece can thus be coated at the same time – with enormous savings in material and time.

Reduction in waste disposal costs:

Due to the reduction in overspray, the spray booths need to be cleaned less often. This protects people and the environment and reduces waste disposal costs.

Higher performance:

To achieve maximum wrap-around and optimum application efficiency, WAGNER electrostatic guns operate at a very high level of performance.

Electrostatic process:

Air atomization: Excellent surface quality – universally usable: The conventional air atomizing process is the classical method of atomizing paints. This type of application meets the highest demands for surface quality and finish. Its universal range of application in industry and for special spray booth applications is what makes this tried-and-tested technology such a success. The central feature of this process is that the paint is atomized by air. The atomizing air flows out through a circular opening in the air cap and can be shaped from a round jet to a flat jet by means of the fan control.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Superb surface quality and excellent surface finish
  • Universally usable
  • Simple to handle
  • Reduction in emissions in accordance with the VOC guidelines for liquid organic compounds

AirCoat atomization: Better performance – less environmental pollution:

Typical for the AirCoat process is its distinctly lower paint pressure compared to the Airless process, and the particularly soft and homogeneous spray jet due to the feed of additional atomizing air. This is provided by the central air feed (air cap) located immediately adjacent to the nozzle hole and that surrounds the sprayed medium like a sheath. Additional advantages are its high coating speed and low overspray.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Excellent surface finish
  • High coating speed
  • Reduction in overspray
  • Uniform application of paint material
  • Soft spray jet with soft run-out at the edges
  • Can also be used for high viscosity materials
  • Reduction in emissions in accordance with the VOC guidelines for liquid organic compounds
