Attention:
Cleaning the OptiSelect manual powder gun with the following solvents is not allowed:
Ethylene chloride, acetone, ethyl acetate, methyl ethyl ketone, methylene chloride, premium gasoline, turpentine, tetrachloromethane,
toluene, trichloroethylene, xylene!
Note:
Only cleaning agents with a flash point of a least 5 Kelvin above the
ambient temperature, or cleaning places with technical ventilation
are allowed!
Cleaning the spray nozzles
Daily or after every shift
-
Clean the inside and outside of the spray nozzle with
compressed air.
Never immerse the parts in solvents!
-
Check the seating of the spray nozzles.
Make sure that the threaded sleeve is always tightened
well. If the spray nozzle is not completely tight, the danger exists, that the high voltage of the gun can flash
over, which can lead to damage to the powder gun!
-
Remove the spray nozzles and clean inside with compressed air. If sintering should have formed, then this is
to be removed!
-
Check the spray nozzles for wear
Weekly
Monthly
The flat jet nozzle is to be replaced, if:
-
the spray pattern is no longer a regular oval
-
deeper grooves in the nozzle slot or even the wall thickness is no longer visible
-
the wedge of the electrode holder is worn down

OptiFlow (IG02 type)
Principle of the injector and influence of supplementary air
If air flows through the nozzle into the cavity, a vacuum is created in the
cavity (see figure below). This vacuum causes powder to be drawn up
the suction tube and into the cavity. A powder/air mixture is created. The
forward air velocity at the nozzle conveys the powder/air mixture through
to the powder hose to the gun.

Fluidized powder
The concentration of the powder/air mixture, and with it, the powder output depends on the conveying air pressure and supplementary air pressure, the quality of the powder, the length of the powder hose, the diameter of the powder hose, the number of coils in the hose, the difference in
the height between the gun and injector, and the type of nozzle. The

condition of the insert sleeve is of great importance, because wear causes the powder output to sink drastically.
Experience with pneumatic material handling technology shows that
pneumatic transport of fine solid matter (powder) in the form of tubing
(hose) the transporting medium requires a certain volume of air per unit
of time. If a Ø 11 mm hose is used, this value is approximately 4 m³/h. To
decrease the powder output, the vacuum in the cavity has to be reduced.
For that purpose, the pressure of the conveying air is also reduced. With
the reduction of the conveying air the volume of air in the powder hose
sinks to below the optimum value of 4 m³/h. The powder transport becomes irregular, so-called "pumping" takes place. In order to prevent this
from happening supplementary air is added until the volume of the air in
the powder hose is 4-5 m³/h once more. This takes place fully automatically with the OptiTronic control unit.
Powder volume setting table for OptiFlow injector
OptiStar
OptiTronic
In order to set the ideal powder volume on the OptiStar/OptiTronic, it is
recommended to select the firmness of the powder cloud or the total air
first. As a guide value for different powder hoses, the following values
can be assumed:
-
Powder hose 1004, internal Ø 11 mm, 4-5 m³/h
-
Powder hose 1005, internal Ø 12 mm, 5-6 m³/h
According to the prevailing conditions (powder, powder hose layout, the
parts to be coated) a low to lowest total air can also be set with the standard hose 1004 Ø 11 mm.
If a very large powder output is required, it is recommended to select a
larger powder hose inside diameter (12 mm i/d).
Note:
It should be considered, that by irregular or pumping conveying,
normally the total air is set too low!

Cleaning and maintenance
Injector cleaning
Cleaning should be done daily before starting work or at color change:
1. Remove the injector from the hopper
2. Pull powder hose off the hose fitting (4)
3. Clean the hose fitting (4) with compressed air which is free of
water and oil and check for wear
4. Clean injector body (1) with compressed air which is free of
water and oil. Any contamination can be seen through the
opening of the powder hopper fitting (2)
5. Reassemble the injector and fit it on the hopper
Attention:
If the injector is severely contaminated, it must be dismantled! Remove the check valves (6 and 7) with the correct sized spanner.
Clean the parts with compressed air and, if necessary, dissolve sintered deposits with nitro-thinners!
Don't use acetone, don't scrape!

The OptiFlow injector should be cleaned once daily as a minimum! Normally, it is sufficient to clean as described on the previous page.
The injector should be dismantled completely once a week or in the case
of heavy contamination (see also the figure in the spare parts list).
