Abstract:

Activity was limited primarily to the design, construction, and evaluation of various feed systems for electrostatic spraying in vacuum. The feed system, utilizing a non-conductive, porous fiber as a spray source was found to have limiting voltage operating conditions. A feed system was constructed where instead of a spray wedge, a convex porous exit surface is provided with a fine-micron porous-metallic element from which an oil-spray tip is pulled upon application of an electric field.
