Aviator - innovation in liquid electrostatic finishing
Aviator innovation in liquid electrostatic finishing
Designed with the needs of the aircraft finishing industry in mind, the ITW Ransburg aviator system allows the spectrum of industry to take advantage of the positive environmental and cost saving benefits of electrostatic finishing, with a system that meets strict Class 1, Division 1 requirements.
The ITW Ransburg aviator unit comprises a turbine pack producing a low voltage charge to the spray gun. There are no electrical inputs to the control pack, purely air to drive the turbine; therefore the system is suitable for use within Class 1, Division 1 areas. The low voltage charge produced by the turbine pack is converted by the integral cascade within the spray gun, to produce the electrostatic charge with which to charge the paint.
Despite the obvious associations with the aviation industry, the ability to mount the aviator within reach of any airline, makes the ITW Ransburg aviator ideal for any application where portability is a consideration.
The ITW Ransburg aviator pack is used in conjunction with the proven range of standard ITW Ransburg guns, which are available in air spray and air assisted airless forms. The ITW Ransburg air spray range is transformable to HVLP and compatible with both solvent and water-based materials. The use of a standard gun, without any moving components, i.e. a turbine, makes the gun easier to handle, eliminates vibrations and reduces fatigue to the operator.
