The water is pumped into the atomisation process at temperatures between 10[degrees]C and 16[degrees]C.
The air-assisted models utilise an external air source to control the atomisation and allow for lower operating pressures (5 psi).
It has improved cost efficiency, production safety and efficiency of the atomisation process.
Objective: Reduction of soot emissions from Diesel engines will be explored by utilising simultaneously (a) injection pressure between 2000-4500bar, (b) engine operation at supercritical conditions relative to the injected fuel s critical point and (c) additives that improve atomisation and reduce pollutant formation.
Users can view the evolution of droplet size as a function of time throughout the spray event, for a complete understanding of different atomisation processes.
In 2009 Anest Iwata introduced the full range of WS compliant pre atomisation technology for spray equipment; this technology is fast becoming the bench mark for application with its fine consistent and controlled atomisation capabilities.
What is even more important, however, is that the new spray gun also offers particularly fine atomisation, which means that the new top-of-the-range model from WALTHER PILOT guarantees top-quality surface finishes while still minimising overspray and protecting the environment.
The AA4400M hand guns operates up to a maximum working pressure of 4400 psi to produce quality "low overspray" atomisation, the guns are extremely lightweight with many built-in ergonomic features such as lower trigger pull tensions and decreased trigger travel which results in reduced operator fatigue and RSi issues.
