Adjusting the Turbine Air Pressure
The fan and atomizing air MUST be on before
turning on the turbine air . Actuating the turbine
without fan and atomizing air flow could damage
the gun and may create hazardous operating
and result in serious injury and property
1. Complete all the checks under the Operating

sure the fan and atomizing air are on, then turn
turbine air (electrostatics) on.
turbine air pressure should be adjusted to 40 psi
(2.8 bar) at the gun manifold inlet when air is flowing.
gun may be operated at a lower air pressure, but
voltage loss could occur
. Do not exceed 50 psi
(3.5 bar) air pressure as there is no added benefit
turbine life could be reduced.

gun voltage will rise to about 85 kV

Activating the Voltage Select (KV HI/LO)
To change the voltage to the lower setting, activate the
voltage select function (KV HI/LO). The lower voltage
is factory set to 60 kilovolts at zero microamperes.
