Huge Effect from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
Currently, the ideal of reducing pollution from VOC in order to protect and secure environment is the priority matter for industry. The reducing of VOC pollution can be done by using water-based liquid to replace solvent-based liquid from some production line. Many of factory has a requirement of water-based application so the painting equipment manufacturer such as WAGNER must complies this regulation and develop equipment for water-based paint.
Even the WAGNER electrostatic liquid spray gun must be complied with this regulation without exception, WAGNER develop new electrostatic liquid water-based spray gun under the name of GA5000W.
To make it be understand clearly the reason why the water-based paint is the significant matter for electrostatic spray gun (and all kind of paint equipment), we will explain about the summary of VOC chemical because this is the main reason to consider the replacement by water-based paint.
VOC: Volatile Organic Compounds
When we talk about solvent-based paint, the main component of this chemical is VOC liquid. You may meet a lot of. VOC application in various industry. As the component of VOC is organic carbon which is volatiled in normal ambient temperature and left behind in eco-system. If there is no suitable control procedure for this chemical, it will make damage to environment. That's why the new generation of spray gun or painting equipment is designed to reduce atomizing rate and reduce risk of overspray. Even the electrostatic spray gun also complies this spray method and develop by adding electric charge into water-based paint in order to make wrap around effect.
Water-Based Paint for Electrostatic Spray Gun GA5000W
As the water-based paint nature has large partical, low resistant and high conductive. Therefore, the solvent-based version (GA5000) can not apply with this paint because the different in internal structure of gun.
Generally, many of water-based material is not 100% pure water but it is mixed with solvent material but we can identify that this chemical reduce the VOC pollution already. However, this material is required for electrostatic water-based spray gun only because they have water-based chemical component.
In other hand, the lay out of equipment is different from solvent-based paint because the feeding section such as paint container, feeding unit or any accessories which related to feeding procedure must be isolated within plastic cabinet which is the electric insulation. There have more details in next topic.
AquaCoat cabinet can apply with automatic version.
Plastic Insulator Cabinet (For Electrostatic Water-Based Spray Gun)
Electric Insulator Plastic Cabinet
The plastic cabinet will be the electric insulator by nature. WAGNER design this cabinet to keep all kind of feeding unit and has a special channel to connect hose from feeding which inside cabinet into spray gun from outside cabinet. In addition, this cabinet can comply both low pressure feeding unit and high pressure feeding unit. For further information, please see in technical data of aqua coat.
Isolation of feeding unit for safety purpose
As the water-based paint has high conductive ability, the feeding unit area will convert to be high conductive area. In the past, the feeding unit area must be isolated and place within iron cage for safety purchase and protect people who walk near isolation area but WAGNER has better solution about efficiency of space using so they create the Aqua Coat plastic cabinet that it is the electric insulator by nature and contain all feeding device such as feeding pump and container. Please see the below picture as the example of area for each related equipment of water-based paint.
Paint hose that connect between pump and spray gun. There have channel in cabinet surface for hose linking from inside to outside.

Technical Data of electrostatic spray gun and control unit
Technical Data will be presented separately into 4 main topics which are electrostatic gun for air spay method and air coat method, AquaCoat plastic cabinet and Control unit VM5020WA for water-based version only.

1. Electrostatic Automatic Air Spray Gun GA5000EAW
Air Spray Automatic Type WAGNER GA5000EAW
As the long experience of WAGNER for electrostatic spray gun for solvent-based paint, it is designed and built for air spray type with high atomize performance and wrap around performance for each workpiece to be same standard for every unit and apply for various type of paint.
Small workpiece and complex surface.
Air Craft Component Industry
Industry where have a water-based requirement
3. Isolation Plastic Cabinet for water-based paint WAGNER AQUA COAT
Insulator Plastic Cabinet for water-based paint
Support water-based application with electrostatic spray gun to be safety and also be designed specially for spending efficiently space to arrange feeding unit and support the painting booth design.
When you use electrostatic spray gun with water-based paint, it is required to use this cabinet no matter what kind of project.
Even this cabinet can isolate the feeding unit out of spraying area, the feeding unit must be complies with water-based paint. For example, the wetted part and body must be stainless. Before using feeding unit, please check the unit before contain on cabinet.
2. Electrostatic Automatic AirCoat Spray Gun GA5000EAWC
Air Coat Automatic type WAGNER GA5000EACW
The combination of 3 technologies within the same spray gun which include, air spray, airless high pressure spray and wrap around effect by electrostatic technology so the efficient of spray gun is high and provide a lot of productivity and obtain a lot of return from investment.
Large workpiece or machine making by order
Large work piece with complex surface that it cause for air coat requirement
Industry where have a water-based requirement
4. Control Unit for Electrostatic Spray Gun VM5020WA
Control Unit WAGNER VM5020WA
The control unit will be present the actual value of voltage and current volume of usage in order to get the optimal spray performance. The condition will be set on on control unit so you can set the voltage and current to match with each workpiece. VM5020W is compatible for water-based automatic electrostatic spray gun. It can not be used with solvent-based spray gun.
For GA5000EAW and GA5000EACW only
