RMA-590 - Introduction
INTRODUCTION
APPLICATOR
DESCRIPTION
The RMA-590 Applicator is an automatic robot
mounted rotary atomizer. This device is capable
of applying waterborne and solvent borne coatings
electrostatically. The waterborne coatings are
applied using a method known as Indirect Charge.
This is where the coating material passes through
an electrostatic field created between the charging
probes, the bell cup and the target to be coated.
The solvent borne coatings are applied using a
method known as Direct Charge. This is where
the coating material has the electrostatic voltage
applied directly to it.
This applicator incorporates the latest in high
speed spindle technology, bell cup and shape
air design to provide the best in atomization and
pattern control. The bell cups are designed for
durability using the best materials available. All
wetted components are designed to offer the
maximum in wear and chemical resistance. The
applicator is capable of applying 70,000 VDC for
the Indirect charge and up to 100,000 VDC for
the Direct charge.
FEATURES
•• Proven long life turbine motor capable of
speeds up to 100 krpm. (See “Specifications” in the “Introduction” section of this
manual for bell cup speed ratings.)
•• Serrated and non-serrated bell cups are
available for application flexibility and color
match. All bell cups are made using Titanium, Aluminum, or Coated Aluminim. The
55mm bell cup is Titanium only.
•• Aerodynamic design for ease of cleaning
external surfaces.
•• 60° and 90° angled adapters provide more
maneuverability and facilitates robotic programming.
•• Negligible maintenance down time. With
the quick disconnect feature, an atomizer
can be exchanged in less than 2 minutes for
off-line maintenance.
•• Fast color changes are achieved using center feed fluid delivery and the fluid valves
provide for simultaneous paint push while
solvent washes the feed tube and bell cup
interior.
Features which make the RMA-590 advantageous:
•• Internal and external bell wash is quick and
efficient. Solvent and air valves are located
near the rear of the applicator on the robot
adapter.
•• The ability to apply waterborne and solvent
borne coatings with the same applicator
without cleaning out the entire system.
•• Less waste to the spray booth, with the
dump valve located internally next to the
feed tube.
•• Assembly components and bell made of durable engineered resin material for optimum
mechanical strength and solvent resistance.
•• Compact high voltage control system. The
MicroPak™ Cascade control takes only 1/4
of the space in a 19-inch Euro rack, leaving
room for additional control modules.
•• Heavy duty design insures excellent service
life even when subjected to the quick motions of robotic applications.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Air Bearing Turbine Assembly
The air bearing turbine assembly with bell cup is
mounted to the atomizer body assembly with a
turbine retaining ring.
Atomizer Body Assembly
The atomizer body assembly houses the turbine,
fluid tube assembly, fiber optic transmitter and
the fluid valves. The assembly incorporates 5
valves to control the fluid delivery to the bell cup,
to changes colors via dump valves and supply
solvent to clean the fluid tube assembly and bell
cup. The assembly is attached to the mounting
manifold with a threaded quick disconnect ring.
Mounting Manifold Assembly
The mounting manifold assembly is attached to
the robot adapter with 8 non-metallic screws and
is the connection point for all the various air and
fluid supply tubing.
Robot Adapter
The robot adapter is available in both 60° and
90° configurations. These angles allow for more
flexibility in robot painting processes. The adapter
houses the solvent and air valve block to clean
the exterior of the bell cup surface. The rear plate
lends itself to attaching various configurations for
mounting on several manufacturers robots.
Robot Adapter Plate
The adapter plate can be configured so that the
applicator can be used with most manufacturers
of robots. The plate also incorporates a center
non-metallic bearing that it rotates as fluid/air
tubes and high voltage cables move and rotate
during the robots motion.
RMA-590 - Introduction
connects the cascade and MicroPak control. The
MicroPak format is designed to fit in a conventional
19-inch or 10-inch rack and requires a 24V power
input at a maximum 3 amps. The MicroPak and
the internal cascade will produce voltages up to
100,000 VDC.
The MicroPak is designed to electronically limit
current to provide safe operation in a spray booth.
The voltage and current draw of the atomizer are
continuously displayed on the MicroPak control
panel. Voltage and over-current limits are adjustable on the front of the MicroPak. MicroPak
internal safety circuits will shut down the system
on over-current and cable faults.
With additional control modules, all of the functions of the RMA and MicroPak can be controlled
by a programmable controller. A Serial Atomizer
Module pneumatically controls the speed of the
rotary atomizer with dynamic feedback through a
fiber optic transmitter located on the applicator. A
Serial Digital Module pneumatically controls the
paint, solvent, and dump valves located on the
atomizer. An I/O module provides communication
between these modules and the PLC.
The above modules are mounted in one 19-inch
rack and interconnected through a common
mother board.
Bell Cups are made of high strength Titanium,
or high wear Coated Aluminum. Serrated cups
are available in 30mm, 55mm, and 65mm sizes.
Non-serreated cups are available in 55mm and
65mm sizes. See ordering matrix for exact size
and material combination availability.
Power Supply and Controls
The high voltage cascade is located inside the
applicator and is controlled by the MicroPak control unit. The low voltage output of the MicroPak
is multiplied by the internal cascade to the high
voltage level required. This eliminates the need
for a high voltage cable. A low voltage cable inter-

Air Heater Recommendation:
An Air Heater is recommended for the turbine air supply. See Air Heater
and filtration recommendation later in this manual
* Although this turbine assembly is capable of operating at continuous speeds up to 100,000 rpm, nearly all high quality
finishes can be achieved within our recommended operating range of 20,000 to 70,000 rpm, based on experience with a
wide variety of materials and various markets. Operating above this range is for highly specialized applications, and may
reduce efficiency and equipment life. Contact your Finishing Brand representative for additional information as required.
The air turbine only is warranted for 15,000 operating hours, or 3 years from date of first installation, whichever occurs
first. If, after inspection by Ransburg, defect is confirmed, we will repair or replace the air turbine, free of charge, during
the warranty period. The repaired air turbine (or replacement air turbine) will continue to be warranted for the remainder
of the initial warranty period (from installation date). The warranty period for the air turbine does not begin again when a
repair is completed under warranty. Air turbines repaired by Ransburg after the warranty period will be warranted for 90
days from the date of shipment from the repair center. (See Warranty section on last page for specific exclusions)

INSTALLATION
AIR FILTER INSTALLATION
(GENERAL GUIDELINES)
The following air filter installation guidelines are
essential for optimum performance:
1. Use 25mm OD (1-Inch OD) minimum inbound
main air line.
2. Use only recommended pre-filters and bearing
air filters as shown in “Air filtration Requirements” chart in the ”Installation” section. Additional system air filtration (i.e., refrigerated
air dryer) may also be used if desired.
3. Mount all the air filters as close as possible
to the RMA-590 applicator. (DO NOT mount
further than 30-Feet (9.1 meters) away.)
4. DO NOT use tape, pipe dope, or other thread
sealant downstream of the bearing air filter.
Loose flakes of tape or other sealant can break
loose and plug the very fine air holes in the
turbine air bearings.
5. Air heaters are highly recommended for use in
the system to minimize the effect of excessively
humid conditions and maintain turbine load
capabilities. If the heated air will exceed 120°F
(48.9°C), the heater must be located after all
filters to prevent damage to the filter media.
NOTE
†† Each applicator must have its own filter
for bearing air. Recommended: RPM-418
or equivalent.
With the exception of fluid, dump, and bearing
air, all other pilot and air supply lines should be
bulk-headed and their diameters increased one
size. For example: Turbine air should be increased
to 12mm OD from bulkhead plate to the volume
booster or heater outlet.

EQUIPMENT GROUNDING /
SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS
In electrostatic coating systems, the flow of high
voltage power from the power supply to the
atomizer is insulated from ground and isolated
from all other functions equipment. When the
voltage reaches the atomizer, it is transferred
to the coating material where, by introducing a
negative charge, it causes the atomized fluid to
seek the nearest positive ground. In a properly
constructed and operated system, that ground will
be the target object.
The directed conduction of the electric charge,
through its array of wires, cables, and equipment,
is accompanied by a variety of stray electrical
charges passing through the air by various means
such as: air ionization, charged particles in the
air and radiated energy. Such charges may be
attracted to any conductive material in the spray
area. If the conductive material does not provide
a safe drain to electrical ground, which will allow
the charge to dissipate as fast as it accumulates,
it may store the charge. When its electrical storage limit is reached, or when it is breached by
external circumstances (such as the approach
of a grounded object or person, or one at lower
potential), it may discharge its stored charge to
the nearest ground. If there is no safe path to
ground (such as a ground wire or braided cable) it
may discharge through the air as a spark. A spark
may ignite the flammable atmosphere of a spray
area. The hazard area extends from the point
of origin up to as much as a twenty-foot radius.
(See the NFPA-33 for definition and limitations of
a hazard area.)
It is simple, but vital matter to be sure that all conductive objects within the spray area are grounded.
All cabinets, housing, bases, supports, and stands,
which are not by design, insulated from ground, be
connected directly and INDIVIDUALLY to earth
ground. Resting on a concrete floor or being
attached to a building column may not always
be sufficient ground.
In order to provide the best ground connection
possible, always attach a ground wire or insulated
braided cable the terminal indicated by the ground
LN-9276-14.1
RMA-590 - Installation
symbol and then to a proven ground. Always
check ground connections for integrity. Some
items, such as rotators and paint stands, may be
supported on an insulator, but all components of
the system up to the insulator MUST be grounded.
NOTE
†† Ransburg recommends that ground
connections to earth ground be 3/4” insulated copper braided wire. Grounds
between assemblies within a machine
should be run to a central point within the
machine using #18 insulated stranded
copper wire minimum. All connections
should be mechanically sound and have
less than 5 ohms of resistance between
assemblies and the common point. The
resistance between the central point
and earth ground should be less than 5
ohms as well.
Where items are mounted directly on structural components such as building columns, the
ground connection MUST still be made. In many
cases the structural component may be painted
or coated with an insulated material and in all
cases, the equipment will provide the necessary
connection at one end, but the user must be sure
that the other end is secured to an earth ground.
This may be achieved by the use of a standard
ground clamp (properly secured), by brazing or
by piercing the structural component enough to
assure connection. All ground connections should
be made to the most conductive metallic structural
ground available.
To be sure that everything is properly grounded,
the following steps should be undertaken at least
daily:
1. Inspect all ground wires. Look for good, firm
joints at all points of connection. Look for
breaks in the ground wire. Repair all defects
IMMEDIATELY!
2. Inspect the floor or grates for excessive
accumulation of dried coating material or
other residue. If there is any, remove it!
24
Ransburg
SAFE GROUNDING IS A MATTER OF PROPER
EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE AND INSTALLATION, CORRECT OPERATION AND GOOD
HOUSEKEEPING. Daily inspection of grounding
apparatus and conditions, however, will help prevent hazards that are cause by normal operations.
BE SURE THAT:
1. All objects in the spray area are grounded.
2. Personnel in the spray area are properly
grounded. (Conductive safety shoes and
coveralls.)
3. That the target object is properly grounded
(less than 1 megohm resistance).
4. That the high voltage is off except during
normal application.
5. That the high voltage is off and applicators
are grounded during maintenance operations.
6. The spray area is kept free of accumulated
coating deposits.
7. All combustible liquids in the spray area
(outside of automatic delivery systems) are
kept to minimum and are kept in fire safe,
grounded containers. (See NFPA-30 and
chapter 6 of NFPA-33.)
8. Proper ventilation is provided.
9. Personnel must thoroughly understand the
equipment, its operation and maintenance,
and all safety precautions.
AIR HEATER
REQUIREMENTS
Turbine drive air expands as it moves through the
turbine wheel cavity and as it exits the turbine from
the exhaust port. This expansion will cause cooling of the exhaust air and the surfaces it contacts.
This same expansion cooling can occur across
the shaping air exit ports. This cooling affect can
cause surface temperatures to fall below the dew
point of the booth, which will result in condensation on the interior and exterior of the atomizer,
LN-9276-14.1
RMA-590 - Installation
machine, and its components. It is even possible
that the temperature of the supply air may be below the booth dew point, even without additional
expansion cooling.
Condensation is especially probable in waterborne
applications when booth temperature and relative
humidity levels are typically maintained very high.
This condensation will allow sufficient conductivity
of the surfaces such that they act as an erratic
ground source potential. This can cause damage
to the equipment.
It is therefore, a requirement that turbine exhaust
air temperature be maintained above the booth
dew point to prevent condensation from forming
on atomizer surfaces. Doing so will eliminate
moisture as a potential defect in painted surfaces
as well as extending equipment life. Thus, it is
recommended that air heaters be installed into
the atomizer air supply lines, i.e. turbine drive
air, shaping air, and seal air. The air heaters must
be of sufficient capacity, capable of raising the
incoming air temperature at least 40°F (4.4°C) at
a flow rate of 60 SCFM per applicator.
The actual air heater process setting depends on
applicator fluid flow rate load, booth conditions,
turbine airflow settings, and incoming air temperature. The heater should be set as low as possible, sufficient to maintain the applicator surface
temperatures above the dew point in the booth.
Example: With the incoming air temperature at
72°F (22.2°C), and RMA Hybrid with 65mm bell
cup rotating unloaded at 60 krpm has a turbine
outlet temperature drop of approximately 28°F
(-2.2°C) @ 40 krpm unloaded, ∆~14°F (-10°C).
Referring to the ASHRAE Psychrometric chart,
the saturation temperature range (dew point) of
a spray booth maintained at 70-75°F/65-70%
RH is 62-68°F (21.1-23.9°C/65-70°RH is 16.720°C). Thus it is almost certain that the surface
temperatures of the applicator will fall below the
dew point of the booth, and an air heater will be
needed in this case.
To prevent condensation, a Ransburg air heater
assembly should be assembled after the air filters
and volume booster. (See heater and filtration
options later in this manual).

INTERLOCKS
The following system interlocks are required to
prevent equipment damage.
•• Bearing air should remain on at all times
and should be shut-off by turning off the
main air to the pneumatic control cabinet.
•• It should not be possible for the coating
material to be sprayed unless the turbine is
spinning.
•• Two inter-connected bearing air ports are
provided, one for supply air and the other
to be used as a return signal for measuring bearing air pressure at the atomizer. If
bearing air falls below 80 psi (551.6 kPa)
at the atomizer, the turbine air should be
automatically interlocked to shut off. This
interlock is provided by the Serial Atomizer
Module. (See current “Serial Atomizer” service manual.)
•• High voltage must be interlocked with the
solvent valve pilot signal to prevent solvent
flow while high voltage is energized (direct
charge only).
•• Turbine air and brake air must be interlocked to prevent both from being used simultaneously. This interlock is provided by
the Serial Atomizer Module. (See current
“Serial Atomizer” service manual.)
•• Any other interlocks required by local national code or international code. The
following system interlocks are required to
prevent equipment damage:
RMA-590 - Installation
!
CAUTION
†† When the turbine air is turned off, the
turbine will continue to operate or “coast
down” for about two minutes. Provisions
should be made to assure that the operator
waits at least three minutes, after shutting
off the turbine air and before shutting off the
main air supply.
†† The bell cup must be removed when
making flow checks. If the paint is turned
on when the bell is mounted and the turbine shaft is not rotating, paint will enter the
shaft and possibly damage the air bearing.
Material flow checks (flow rate verification)
must be made with the bell cup off and the
turbine not rotating. Normally pneumatic
interlocks will not allow the paint to trigger
on when the turbine air is off.
!
WARNING
†† The high voltage and/or coating material
must never be turned on unless the bell cup
is mounted on the motor shaft and the turbine
is rotating.
†† Pneumatic input to the turbine air inlet
must be controlled to prevent the turbine
from exceeding the maximum rated speed
of 100,000 rpm. (See “Specifications” in the
“Introduction” section.)
†† High voltage must never be turned on
while cleaning solvent is being sprayed either
through the applicator supply or the cup wash
line. High voltage and both solvent triggers
must be interlocked (direct charge only).
†† Never Spray solvent with high voltage on.

OPERATION
!
WARNING
†† Operators must be fully trained in safe
operation of electrostatic equipment. Operators must read all instructions and safety precautions prior to using this equipment
(see NFPA-33).
As with any spray finishing system, operation of
the RMA-590 involves properly setting the operating parameters to obtain the best finish quality
for the coating material being sprayed, while
maintaining correct operation and reliability of
the equipment used. Adjustments to operating
parameters, which cover spraying, cleaning, and
on/off control, include:
•• Coating materials
•• Fluid flow rate control
•• Fluid valve control
•• Turbine speed
•• Bearing air adjustment
•• Shaping air
•• Brake air
FLUID FLOW RATE
CONTROL
Externally mounted fluid regulators or
pumps are typically used to control fluid
Paint is supplied to the RMA-590 by
of the tubing bundle through the robot
The atomizer assembly is equipped with micro
valves which are pneumatically operated to direct the flow of paint to either the feed tube or
dump line and to supply an intermittent solvent
to clean the interior and exterior of the bell cup.
The feed tube has several sized removable tips
available from .7mm - 1.6mm (.027-inch - .062inch). The viscosity and volume of the coating
material being sprayed determine the correct size
of feed tube tip for each installation. (Reference
“Fluid Tip Flow Rate” chart in the “Introduction”
section.)
Fluid Flow Rate Check
In the test mode, the flow rate can be measured
by removing the bell cup from the atomizer, turning
the fluid flow on, and capturing the material in a
graduated beaker or measuring cup for a fixed
period of time (shaping air, high voltage, and
turbine air must be off).
•• Electrostatic voltage
•• Target distance
!
WARNING
†† Electrical discharge of a high electrical
capacitance fluid/paint system can cause
fire or explosion with some materials. If arcing occurs when a specific coating material
is used, turn the system off and verify that
the fluid is non-flammable. In these conditions the system is capable of releasing sufficient electrical and thermal energy to cause
ignition of specific hazardous materials in
the air.

Ransburg
RMA-590 - Operation
(See “Circuit Diagram” in the “Introduction” section.) The fluid valves in the RMA-590 are actuated
by an air signal. The air pressure must be greater
than 70 psi (482.6 kPa) to assure proper actuation
of the valve. Applying air to the valve actuator
turns on the fluid or air for that valve.
The paint trigger valve controls the paint flow to
the bell. When actuated, paint flows through the
valve to the fluid tube, and into the rear of the
bell cup. The bell cup must be spinning at least
30,000 rpm when fluid is turned on to enable the
fluid to flow through the bell paint passage and
be atomized.
The dump valve controls the paint flow through the
dump line. When actuated, paint flow is directed
to the dump return line. This provides a method
of rapidly removing paint from the incoming line
for cleaning and/or color change. Normally, the
dump valve is not actuated at the same time as
the paint trigger valve since the trigger valve is
intended to cause the fluid to flow to the bell at
the prescribed input pressure.
During spraying, a separate air line supplies constant flow of air to the dump line to keep it dry.
The air supply line is protected by a check valve
to prevent reverse flow.
The solvent valve controls the flow of cup wash
solvent. When actuated, solvent flows through
a separate fluid tube passage and into the bell
cup. This provides cleaning of the inside of the
bell cup. The outside of the cup is simultaneously
cleaned by a nozzle mounted on the shaping air
ring and shroud. The solvent valve should never
be triggered at the same time as the paint trigger
valve to prevent solvent from flowing backward
into the paint line.
!
CAUTION
†† The normal fluid flow range is 25-1000
cc/min. During a color change or when
flushing the system, high flow rates may
be required. However, the maximum flow
rate through the bell cup must not exceed
1000 cc/min., to avoid solvent or paint from
flooding into the internal portion of the air
bearing motor assembly or front shroud.
†† High voltage must be interlocked
with the solvent valve to prevent solvent
spraying while high voltage is on.
TURBINE SPEED
Turbine speed is determined by the input air
pressure/flow at the rear of the atomizer.
Turbine speed is intended to be closed loop
controlled using the fiber optic speed transmitter,
located on the turbine manifold. A speed input
to a remote speed controller, such as the Serial
Atomizer Module, is required. (See “Speed and
Pressure” charts in the “Introduction” section.)
NOTE
†† The bell rotational speed determines
the quality of atomization and can be
varied for various paint flow rates and
paint formulations. For optimum transfer
efficiency and spray pattern control, the
bell rotational speed should be set at the
minimum required to achieve proper atomization. Excessive speed reduces
transfer efficiency!
To color change the applicator, a solvent air chop
must be provided through the main paint line (see
”Typical Installation RMA-590” in the Installation”
section).

†† Never perform the interior/exterior
cup clean process with high voltage on.

!
WARNING
†† DO NOT exceed the maximum rated
operating speed and turbine inlet pressure.
Excessive speed may cause air turbine
damage or damage to the bell.
BEARING AIR
ADJUSTMENT
The nominal bearing air pressure is 90 psi (620.5
kPa), measured at the rear of the atomizer. Minimum pressure is 80 psi (551.6 kPa) and maximum
pressure is 100 psi (689.5 kPa). The turbine
should never be operated with less than 80 psi
(551.6 kPa) bearing air pressure.
Bearing air must be present when turning the
turbine on. Bearing air must remain on when
the turbine air is turned off until the turbine stops
spinning. Never turn off bearing air to cause the
turbine to stop spinning. If connected, brake air
can be used to slow the turbine.
The RMA-590 is equipped with a bearing air
return line to monitor bearing air pressure at the
turbine manifold. When connected to the remote
Serial Atomizer speed controller, operation of the
turbine will automatically be shut down whenever
the bearing air pressure falls below the dip switch
setting of 80 psi (551.6 kPa).
!
WARNING
†† Bearing air MUST be ON and supplied at
a minimum of 80 psig (551.6 kPa) whenever
the turbine is operated. If not, severe bearing damage will occur. It is recommended
that bearing air be left turned on at all times,
except during maintenance or disassembly.
†† Bearing damage (and subsequent turbine failure) caused by running the turbine
without bearing air WILL NOT be covered
under the Ransburg warranty.

Direct Charge Spraying
When spraying solvent borne material you must
provide voltage to the indirect charge ring and
probes. The voltage at the probes should be at
a lower potential than that applied to the bell cup
directly. For example 70kv is applied to the bell
cup directly. 65kv should be applied to the high
voltage probes. Having a higher potential on the
probes may cause high voltage arching during
spray operation. This may cause fire or damage.
Use plastic or metal shape air component when
spraying in direct charge mode.
Indirect Charge Spraying
When spraying in this mode, the bell cup is at
earth ground potential. High voltage is applied to
the high voltage ring and probes (70kV maximum).
An electrostatic field develops between the high
voltage probes, the bell cup and the spray target.
An electrostatic charge is applied to the paint as it
passes through this field. Use only plastic shape
air component when spraying in indirect charge
mode.
NOTE
†† A minimum of 70 slpm (2.6SCFM)
should always be kept flowing in the inner
shaping air passage to keep the face of
the applicator clean during manual cleaning breaks.
!
WARNING
†† Never spray solvent when high voltage
is on.
!
WARNING
†† DO NOT use metal shape air components when using the indirect charge ring.

As the name implies, both shaping air outlets
supply air that is counter to the rotation of the bell
cup. This combination will provide a pattern size
from 3-inch to 10-inch (76mm - 254mm) depending on bell rotation speed, fluid flow, and air flow.
Both sets of shaping air holes are independently
controlled. The inner set of holes are supplied by
connecting the tube labeled “SAI” to a regulated
air source. The outer set of shaping air holes are
supplied by connecting the tube labeled “SAO”
to a regulated source. The air supplies work in
combination with each other to provide desired
results. This combination of shaping air can be
used with any 65mm bell cup.

BRAKE AIR
Brake air is used to slow the turbine speed in a
minimum length of time. It is advantageous for
short cycle times during color change, or may be
used to reduce speed or stop the turbine. Never
operate brake air with the turbine air on.
ELECTROSTATIC
VOLTAGE
The RMA-590 Rotary Atomizer receives a low
voltage control input from the MicroPak to control
the operating electrostatic voltage. (refer to the
current “MicroPak” manual for detailed for operating instructions.)
37
Ransburg
RMA-590 - Operation
NOTE
†† If paint defects occur, such as fatty
edges or picture framing, reducing the
voltage should be a last resort. To correct the problem, lead and lag trigger
adjustments should be optimized first.
†† The electrostatic voltage applied
to the RMA-590 will affect pattern size,
transfer efficiency, wrap and penetration
into cavity areas.
CUP WASH
It is recommended for water based material that
heated solvent be recirculated at the rear input of
the atomizer (140° F, 60° C). Typical wash solvent
is di-water and amine (8-10% solution).
TARGET DISTANCE
The distance between the RMA-590 atomizer
and the target will affect the finish quality and
efficiency. Closer distances give a smaller pattern, wetter finish, and greater efficiency. Greater
distance will provide a large pattern size and drier
finish. The MicroPak control circuit will enable
the applicator bell to be operated to within a few
inches of the target without adjusting the voltage
setting. The recommended target distance is 6
to 12-inches (152.4-304.8mm). In general, allow
1-inch (25.4mm) target distance for every 10kV.
GENERAL OPERATING
SEQUENCE
!
WARNING
†† It is recommended to leave bearing air
on, unless the applicator is being serviced or
removed for service.
Normally, for painting application, the process
sequence should always be:
• Bearing air on (Always On)
• Turbine air on
• Turbine speed to application speed
• Shaping air on
• Start fluid flow off part
• Voltage on
After spraying the object, the sequence
should be:
• Voltage lowered to 30-50 kV
• Fluid off
• Shaping air to setback volume
• Turbine speed to set back speed (30,000
rpm recommended)
Recommended sample cup flush sequence is
as follows (voltage must be off) (internal and
external cup wash):
1. Turbine speed set to 25,000-30,000 rpm.
2. Set shaping to 350-450 slpm (12.4-15.9
SCFM).
3. Point atomizer at a grounded object such as
a booth grate.
4. Maintain solvent pressure of 100-150 psi
(689-1,034 kPa). Maintain air push pressure at 80-100 psi (552-689 kPa).
5. Use an alternating trigger sequence of solvent/air to create a chopping effect. Always
ensure that the last step in the sequence is
an air push.
A typical sequence is .2 seconds solvent,
1.0 second air push, 1.7 seconds solvent
and 2.0 seconds final air push. This sequence may be modified for other paints
and applications
6. It is recommended that an in-line fluid filter
be installed to ensure that no foreign debris
enters the fluid tip or the external wash nozzle.
The RMA-590 is versatile in processing the finish of a component. It can be setup as shown
in “Typical Paint Sequence” figure.
LN-9276-14.1
38
Ransburg
RMA-590 - Operation
Recommended sample cup purge sequence
is as follows (voltage must be off) (internal cup
cleaning):
1. Turbine speed set to 25,000-30,000 rpm.
2. Increase shaping air to 350-450 slpm (12.415.9 SCFM).
3. Paint atomizer at booth grate or insert into
bell cleaning station.
4. Maintain solvent pressure of 100-150 (6891,034 kPa). Maintain air push pressure at
80-100 psi (552-689 kPa).
5. Use an alternating trigger sequence of solvent/air to create a chopping effect. Always
ensure that the last step in the sequence is
an air push.
6. A typical sequence is .3 seconds solvent,
1.7 seconds air push, repeat 3 times. This
sequence may be modified for other paint
and applications.
2. Shaping Air - Set to 350-450 (12.4-15.9
SCFM) while performing a cup flush.
3. Voltage On - The voltage is turned on from
a signal to the MicroPak. The lag time to
full voltage may be reduced if a setback
voltage is used. Recommended setback
voltage is between 30 kV and 50 kV.
4. Trigger Fluid - An air signal is sent through
the PT line of the tubing bundle. This
should occur when the target is 6-12-inches (152.4-304.8mm) from the applicator
centerline. (Not to be confused with target
distance.)
5. Voltage Off/Setback Voltage - Immediately
precedes the trigger off. Using a setback
voltage shortens the cascade voltage ramp
up time.
6. Fluid Trigger Off - This should occur
when the target is typically 0-6-inches (0152.4mm) past the applicator centerline.
7. Shaping Air to Setback - The setback flow
of air should never be below 70 slpm (2.6
SCFM) for the shape air.
Typical Paint Sequence
8. Color Change Sequence - Used when color is changed one to the other. Typical sequence is shown in “Typical Color Change
Sequence” figure in the “Operation” section.
NOTE
†† During this sequence, the applicator should be moved to a position to
collect the waste material.
Typical Color Change Sequence
Sequence Event Explanation:
1. Bell to Speed - This is accomplished by
a set point command from either the PLC,
robot, or other input device, through the I/O
module.
LN-9276-14.1
The sequence shown is a starting point for
processing, but the final sequence will depend on the material being sprayed and the
solvent used to purge the applicator with.

RMA-590 - Maintenance
MAINTENANCE
O-RINGS
All O-rings in this atomizer are solvent proof
except those on the air bearing spindle. These
O-rings must not be soaked in solvent; if these
are exposed or soaked in solvent, they must
be replaced. These O-rings are engineered to
provide a fit between the air bearing spindle and
it’s mating parts to reduce or eliminate harmonic
resonance (vibration).
Some O-rings are encapsulated. These O-rings
have a limited amount of stretch and will not return
to their original diameters if over stretched. These
O-rings are subject to being distorted more easily
than rubber O-rings, so it is important that they
be sufficiently lubricated when mating parts are
installed onto them. They also will take a square
set over time and should be replaced periodically
if mating parts are removed repeatedly or if a new
mating part is installed onto them.
Any O-ring that is cracked, nicked, or distorted
must be replaced.
A suitable lubricant is food grade petroleum jelly
or A11545-00 Petrolatum Jell.
!
WARNING
†† Electrical shock and fire hazards can exist
during maintenance. MicroPak supply must
be turned off before entering the spray area
and performing any maintenance procedures
on the atomizer. Spray booth fans should
remain on while cleaning with solvents.
†† Never touch the atomizer bell while it is
spinning. The front edge of the bell can easily
cut into human skin or cut through gloves and
other materials. Be sure the atomizer bell has
stopped spinning before attempting to touch it.
Approximate time for the bell to stop spinning
after turning off turbine drive air is three minutes.
†† Ensure high voltage is off during any manual cleaning procedure.
LN-9276-14.1
!
WARNING
†† Ensure that all energy sources are dissipated, (electrical, air, paint, solvent, etc.)
before removing the applicator or performing
any maintenance.
In addition to the previous Warning, which relates
to potential safety hazards, the following information must be observed to prevent damage to the
equipment.
!
CAUTION
†† DO NOT immerse the RMA Hybrid turbine
in solvent or other liquids. Turbine components
will be damaged and warranty will be voided.
†† Bearing air must be on during all cleaning
procedures to protect the air bearing components.
CLEANING PROCEDURES
Internal Fluid Path Purge Cleaning
Cleaning the incoming paint line (from paint supply
source such as color manifold through the fluid
manifold and bell assembly): Turn off the high
voltage and turn on the color stack trigger valve
for solvent supply. With the bell spinning, open
the dump valve and flush the incoming paint line
with solvent or an air/solvent chop. Make sure the
last step of the sequence is air to purge the dump
line of remaining solvent. To speed the loading of
the new paint, leave the dump line open to allow
the air in front of the paint push to escape. The
length of time the dump valve is open depends
on several factors such as viscosity, paint pressure, etc. Timing should be such that the dump
is closed as the paint reaches the trigger valve in
the atomizer. Paint in the dump line may cause
high voltage issues.
The fluid coil and fluid tube can be cleaned independently by actuating the solvent valve in
the atomizer. High voltage must be turned off
during this operation and the bell cup must be
spinning (typically 30,000 rpm for cup flushing
sequences).
40
Ransburg
RMA-590 - Maintenance
Bell Cup Cleaning (Cup Wash) Without Cleaning the Incoming Paint Line
•• For best operating conditions, the atomizer
surfaces must be dry.
Turn off the high voltage and trigger valve. With
the bell spinning at 30,000 rpm, turn on the external solvent valve to allow cleaning solvent to
flow through the manifold passages, through the
fluid tube, and onto the bell. The spinning bell will
atomize the solvent, clean out the bell passages
both internally and externally. It is always required
to blow the solvent line dry after the cleaning operation. Typical bell speed during the cup flush
sequence is 30,000 rpm. Follow sequence as
outlined for cup wash in “General Operating Sequence” in the “Operation” section.
•• Always final wipe all parts with a non-polar solvent and wipe dry (high flash Naphtha, etc.).
!
CAUTION
†† The maximum flow rate of 1000 cc/min.
must not be exceeded during a flush routine. Use of an in-line fluid restrictor is recommended.
External Atomizer Surface Cleaning
•• Verify that the high voltage is turned off.
•• All external surfaces may be cleaned using
a mild solvent and lint free rags to hand
wipe the RMA-590. Turbine drive air must
be off, but leave bearing air on. The inner and outer shaping air (if applicable)
should have approximately 70 slpm air flow
through each to prevent the solvent from
entering these passages.
•• Do not spray the RMA-590 unit with a
solvent applicator used for cleaning. The
cleaning fluid under pressure may aid conductive materials to work into hard to clean
areas or may allow fluids to be forced into
the turbine assembly.
!
WARNING
†† NEVER wrap the applicator in plastic to
keep it clean. A surface charge may build up
on the plastic surface and discharge to the
nearest grounded object. Efficiency of the
applicator will also be reduced and damage
or failure of the applicator components may
occur. WRAPPING THE APPLICATOR IN
PLASTIC WILL VOID WARRANTY.
!
WARNING
†† To reduce the risk of fire or explosion,
OSHA and NFPA-33 require that solvents
used for exterior cleaning, including bell
cleaning and soaking, be nonflammable (flash
points higher than 100°F/ 37.8° C). Since
electrostatic equipment is involved, these
solvents should also be non-polar. Examples of non-flammable, non-polar solvents for
cleaning are: Amyl acetate, methyl amyl acetate, high flash naphtha, and mineral spirits.
†† Do not use conductive solvents such as
MEK to clean the external surfaces of the
RMA-590 without a second cleaning with a
non-polar solvent.
†† When using a rag to hand wipe the RMA590, the turbine air should be off, but leave
both the shaping air and bearing air turned
on. Ensure that rotation has come to a complete stop.
•• Do not reuse an atomizer bell cup that
shows any sign of damage such as nicks,
heavy scratches, dents, or excessive wear.
LN-9276-14.1
41
Ransburg
RMA-590 - Maintenance
VIBRATION NOISE
If the RMA-590 is vibrating or making an unusually
loud noise, it usually means there is an imbalance
situation. The atomizer bell cup may have dried
paint on it or the bell may be physically damaged,
or there may be paint trapped between the bell
cup and shaft preventing the bell cup from properly
seating. If any of these conditions exist, they MUST
be corrected. Excessive imbalance caused by one
of these conditions may result in bearing damage
and turbine failure. Warranty DOES NOT cover
failure caused by imbalanced loading conditions.
To determine if the bell is dirty or damaged, remove
the bell cup and turn the turbine ON. If the noise
is eliminated, the bell cup is the problem. If the
noise continues, the turbine may be damaged
and should be inspected. Excessive air required
to achieve same speed may indicate a faulty or
contaminated turbine. DO NOT continue to operate a noisy turbine.
!
WARNING
†† If a bell cup comes off a rotating shaft
because of motor seizing or any other reason, the Atomizer and bell cup must be returned to Ransburg for inspection and evaluation to determine if the bell can be used
in operation.
TURBINE MAINTENANCE
DO NOT attempt to rebuild the turbine. Any
endeavor to disassemble a turbine during the
warranty period will void the warranty. Contact
your authorized distributor or Ransburg for
instructions.
GENERAL/PREVENTIVE
MAINTENANCE
Verify daily that the operating parameters have
not varied significantly from the normal. A drastic
change in high voltage, operating current, turbine
air, or shaping air, can be an early indicator of
potential component failure.
LN-9276-14.1
A laminated poster entitled “Rotary Atomizer
Checklist” (AER0075-02) is included with the
assembly in the Literature Kit to be posted near
the station as a handy reference.
Due to the close proximity of high voltage to
ground potential, a schedule must be developed
for equipment maintenance (cleanliness).
PREVENTIVE
MAINTENANCE
Daily Maintenance (During Each Preventive
Maintenance Break)
1. Verify that high voltage is OFF and that
shaping air, bearing air, and turbine drive air
are ON.
2. Open the dump valve, flushing all paint from
the supply lines and valve module.
3. Open the solvent valve, flushing all paint
from the fluid tube and through the atomizer
bell assembly.
4. Re-verify that high voltage is OFF, turbine
drive air is OFF, and that the bell cup has
stopped spinning. The bearing air and
shaping air should remain ON.
5. Clean all external surfaces of the applicator
using a lint-free rag dampened with solvent.
6. After cleaning, all conductive residue must
be removed using a non-conductive solvent.
Since electrostatic equipment is involved,
these solvents should also be non-polar
(Naphtha).
7. Inspect bell cup for nicks, dents, heavy
scratches, or excessive wear. Replace if
necessary.
8. Check bell cup tightness. Tighten to 50-70
lbs•in (5.65-7.91 Nm) torque.
9. Check the amount of paint build-up on the
outer protective cloth covers, if used. If
excessive, replace covers as required. If
cloths are wet, find source and replace with
dry cloth covers.

Bell Cup Handling
Always verify that high voltage is turned off and
the atomizer bell has stopped spinning before
performing any type of handling maintenance.
Bell Cup Replacement
Bell cup wear is dependent on many factors such
as bell speed, flow rate, and type of coating being
applied.
The bell cups shown in the photos below indicate
if a bell cup has some usable life or should be replaced. Photo 1 shows a bell cup that has some
usable life. The grooves worn around the splash
plate pins are shallow. The general appearance
of the cup surface is smooth and uninterrupted.
Photo 2 shows a bell cup that needs to be replaced,
as well as the splash plate that was installed into

BELL CUP CLEANING
Always verify that high voltage is OFF and that
the atomizer bell is spinning before performing
any type of color change or bell flush cleaning
cycle.
To reduce the risk of fire or explosion, the solvents used for exterior cleaning must have flash
points above 100°F (37.8°C). Since electrostatic equipment is involved, these solvents should
also be non-polar.
Solvents used for equipment flushing should
have flash points equal to or higher than those
of the coating material being sprayed.
1. The atomizer bell will normally be fully
cleaned during a bell flush cycle. Flushing
should be done before any down time or
break in production. A bell flush cycle may
also be required while spraying batch parts
of the same color. Verify that high voltage is
in off and that the atomizer bell is spinning
before flushing through the bell.
2. If there is any remaining paint build-up on
any areas of the bell after flushing, the bell
cup should be removed for hand cleaning.
The bell’s leading edge, splash plate, serration cuts, and rear of cup are some examples of areas for special attention.
Bell Cup Soaking
3. Bell cups and splash plates can be soaked
in a heated solution for up to 2 hours in an
ultrasonic cleaner (120°F. 49°C maximum).
Bell cups alone may be soaked for an extended amount of time.
Manual Inspection
4. Visually inspect the bell cup edge for signs
of abrasion. If the edge is excessively worn
or badly chipped as the result of a collision
with a part, replace the cup immediately.
5. Remove splash plate. Inspect for wear on
the bell cup where the fluid leaves the large
diameter of the splash plate. If any undercut in this area, the cup should be replaced.

6. Also, check the three (3) pins between the
front and rear splash plate halves. If worn,
replace entire assembly.
7. Check the center holes of the splash plate
for wear. Hold splash plate up to a light
source and look straight into the holes. If
light is clearly seen, the angled holes are
worn and the splash plate must be replaced.
8. Splash plate assemblies may be soaked for
a short time, under 2 hours, to loosen dried
material. Clean with a soft bristle brush. Blow out center holes to dislodge material.
Never use any kind of pick instrument to
clean these holes.
9. Soaking the bell in solvent may aid in loosening or removing paint build-up. It is
recommended that the splash plate be removed and cleaned separately.
10.Use a soft bristle brush dipped in solvent
to remove paint build-up from the serration
cuts, paint feed holes or slots, and external and internal surfaces of the bell.

11.A soft, lint free rag dampened with solvent
may be used to remove any paint residue
from the external and internal surfaces of
the bell.
12.After removing all paint build-up or residue,
rinse the bell in clean solvent and blow dry.
13.Before reinstalling the bell on the shaft,
check the mating surfaces of the thread
and taper for any paint build-up or residue.
Also, check the fluid tip, fluid tube outside
diameter, and the shaft for any further paint
build-up. These surfaces should be cleaned
before installing the bell.
14.It is recommended that extra bell cups be
purchased. The cups can then be cleaned
off line in an automated cup cleaner.
15.Reinstall cups to proper torque 50-70 lbs•in
(5.65-7.91 Nm).
CLEANING SHAPING
AIR HOLES
In order to maintain uniform pattern control, the
shaping air holes of the inner ring and the shaping
air cap must be clean and free of any blockage.
It is best to leave the shaping air supply ON
during normal production break cleaning periods.
Shaping air can be reduced to 70 slpm during this
time. This will help stop material from entering
the passage ways.
Periodically (weekly) the outer shaping air cap and
the inner shaping air ring should be removed and
thoroughly cleaned. Use of an ultrasonic cleaner
would make cleaning of hole diameters easier.
Inspect all holes for blockage. Blow holes clear
with compressed air after some time of soaking
in solvent. DO NOT use any type of pick to
clear the holes. Damage may result to parts
and could affect performance of the equipment.
If holes are damaged (oversized holes, blockage,
and gauges) it must be replaced.

Check atomizer voltage using the Ransburg Test
Meter Kit (76652-01 or 76652-04). Verify that the
output voltages have not varied much from the
setup standard. A drastic change in voltage can
be an early indicator of a component or system
problem. The data shown was collected under
the ideal lab conditions using a clean atomizer
and an unloaded fluid delivery system.
The following data is for use with the RMA-590. The
output voltage measured at the bell will normally
range between 91% and 97% of the kV set-point
displayed at the control unit. Typical setting for
spraying is 70 kV.

If readings fall out of this range, disassemble electrode assembly and check reading of resistor only.
If reading is in the acceptable range, discard the
electrode body (A11342-00) and replace with a
new one. Rebuild electrode assembly as follows:
apply a small amount of dielectric grease to each
end of the resistor, slide resistor into the electrode
body (A11342-00). Install the contact assembly
after the resistor. Finally, apply a small amount of
dielectric grease to contact area of plunger contact
assembly. Thread plunger contact assembly into
electrode body by hand until it stops. Hand-tight
is good enough. Over-tightening will damage
the electrode body (see “Disassembly/Assembly

last 3-6 months. The electrostatic field generated
by these electrodes are very important to maintain
paint transfer efficiency, pattern uniformity, and
atomizer cleanliness.
DISASSEMBLY
PROCEDURES
NOTE
†† For reassembly instructions, use the
reverse of the following disassembly
procedures.
†† To facilitate atomizer removal from
hose manifold, a robot program should be
made that purges all paints and solvents
from the RMA-590. Ideally it would then
position the bell assembly in a bell removal position where the bell cup is pointed
downward at a 30° angle. Any residual
solvents would be contained in the “J bend
“ of the robot wrist.
†† All O-rings described in the “Maintenance” section of this manual should be
lubricated with a food grade petroleum jelly or with A11545 lubricant.
NOTE
†† The outer protective cover may have
to be replaced more frequently than weekly. Daily inspection of the amount of paint
build-up on the cover will determine the
frequency of replacement.
!
WARNING
†† Prior to removing applicator from the robot, the following tasks must be completed.
†† Robot put into E-stop mode, locked and
tagged out.
†† All fluid passages are cleaned, purged
out, and depressurized.
†† Air turned off.
NOTE
†† Direct Charge and Indirect Charge Atomizer removal instructions are the same
with the exception of removing the high
voltage ring.
Disassembly the turbine manifold assembly from
the mounting manifold assembly by unscrewing the
retaining ring counter-clockwise. Use of the spanner wrench to aid in removal may be necessary.

RMA-590 - Warranty Policy
WARRANTY POLICIES
LIMITED WARRANTY
Ransburg will replace or repair without charge any
part and/or equipment that falls within the specified
time (see below) because of faulty workmanship or
material, provided that the equipment has been used
and maintained in accordance with Ransburg’s written
safety and operating instructions, and has been used
under normal operating conditions. Normal wear items
are excluded.
THE USE OF OTHER THAN RANSBURG APPROVED

When purchased as a complete unit, (i.e., guns, power supplies, control units, etc.), is one (1) year from
date of purchase. WRAPPING THE APPLICATOR IN
PLASTIC, SHRINK-WRAP, ETC., WILL VOID THIS
WARRANTY.
RANSBURG’S ONLY OBLIGATION UNDER THIS
WARRANTY IS TO REPLACE PARTS THAT HAVE
FAILED BECAUSE OF FAULTY WORKMANSHIP
OR MATERIALS. THERE ARE NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES NOR WARRANTIES OF EITHER MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR

of charge, during the warranty period. The repaired
air turbine (or replacement air turbine) will continue to
be warranted for the remainder of the initial warranty
period (from installation date). The warranty period
for the air turbine does not begin again when a repair
is completed under warranty. Air turbines repaired by
Ransburg after the warranty period will be warranted
for 90 days from the date of shipment from the repair

b. Negligence.
c. Accidents - Collisions with external objects, fires,
or similar occurrences.
d. Improper maintenance procedures.
e. Attempted customer repair of an air turbine
during warranty.
f. Failure to insure clean air to air bearing
and turbine.
g. Operating turbine without bearing air.

j. Acts of God, flood, earthquake, or similar
occurrences.
k. RMA-590’s being operated by control systems
not designed by Ransburg, or when others have
EXCLUSIONS:
If, in Ransburg’s opinion the warranty item in question,
or other items damaged by this part was improperly
installed, operated or maintained, Ransburg will assume no responsibility for repair or replacement of the
item or items. The purchaser, therefore will assume
all responsibility for any cost of repair or replacement
and service related costs if applicable.
2. Labor or incidental costs occasioned by removal,
replacement or repair of rotary atomizer or air
turbine (other than by Ransburg) unless we have
given specific written or telegraphic authorization
for repair by someone other than Ransburg.
Specific Air Turbine Warranty
4. Cost of repair/replacement and return transportation
from Ransburg of merchandise determined not to
be defective.
The air turbine only is warranted for 15,000 operating
hours, or 3 years from date of first installation, whichever
comes first. If, after inspection by Ransburg, defect is
LN-9276-14.1
3. Rotary atomizers determined by Ransburg not to
