Title Explosion protection in electrostatic coating
Original title Explosionsschutz in der elektrostatischen Verfahrenstechnik [in German]
Bibliographic information May 1972, Vol.17, No.10, p.240-241.
Abstract Explosion prevention in electrostatic painting, spraying and powder coating is achieved by primary protection (adequate ventilation) backed up by secondary protection (usually intrinsic safety). Ignition at the spray nozzle is discussed, and safety measures related to current paths and workpieces are indicatd (earthing, selection of suitable current for spray unit to ensure intrinsic safety).
