Paint Resistivity Meter for Electrostatic Applications

Published by merscher on

The fast measurement of paint resistance

The Ransburg Meter 76652-03 is a hand-held meter designed for quick measurement of the electrical resistance of resistance of paints and varnishes for electrostatic applications. It is an essential tool for paint labs, paint manufacturers, customer inspection departments and other end users of electrostatic equipment. Once the paint or coating resistivity has been determined and found to be successfully sprayed,Ransburg paint resistivity meter 76652-03 measuring the resistivity with the meter provides a means of duplicating the conditions. This is extremely important when troubleshooting problems with spray or rotary applicators.
The 76652-03 Complete Measurement Kit includes the 76634-00 Multi-Function Meter and the 7922-00 Paint Probe Assembly. The Multifunction Meter itself is powered by a single 9V alkaline battery. The meter has two scales, MΩ and kΩ, which can be used to measure paint resistance.

Easy operation – results in seconds

The operation is very operator friendly: The meter dial must be set to the correct scale (usually first to the MΩ) and the paint probe plugged into the meter. Then the probe has to be immersed vertically into the well-mixed sample liquid until the holes at the bottom of the slots in the probe sleeve are submerged. A reading can be taken after only 5-10 seconds of immersion. The paint resistivity range should be between 0.05 MΩ and 1.0 MΩ for Aerobells and Discs and from 0.1 MΩ for most electrostatic spray guns.
