The AKIMist® Dry Fog Humidifier system is used for ESD prevention, cooling, and humidity conditioning.
The dust problems in the finishing process
Automotive assembly plants tend to paint and repaint automotive body parts and external panels due to imperfections created by dust in the paint finish.
Electrostatic charge builds up on the product surface and attracts dust particles which adhere to the surface, resulting in paint defects. Increasing the humidity is an easy way to remove electrostatic charge in the staging area prior to painting.
Preventing static buildup on the surface reduces the need to repaint and correct defects, saving time, product, and money. Adding humidity also drastically reduces the amount of dust and debris in the booth and transfer areas, resulting in fewer defects.
The AKIMist Dry Fog solution
The AKIMist® humidification system is a humidifier which uses patented “Dry Fog” technology that began with the AKIJet® nozzle. After the AKIMist® had been utilized in European and Asian manufacturing facilities for over 20 years, it was introduced to the North American market with great success.
The AKIMist® is a compact sphere with four mounting positions around the top of the patented ‘egg’ design. Up to four Dry Fog nozzles can be attached to these mounting positions and a fine, fog-like mist sprays from each nozzle with a droplet size so small it will not cause wetting.
Installation can be customized based on your needs. Individual units can be used for small areas of spot humidification and multiple units can be linked together for larger areas. The addition of directional elbows offers even more control and system optimization. The AKIMist® design provides unique solutions to your specific humidification needs.
The quality difference
Paint departments use humidification systems and other static reducing products such as air ionizers, tack mats, dust nets and similar devices to keep products clean and ready for paint. Often the final step before painting includes manually wiping down parts as they enter the paint booth.
The Akimist® “E” raises the humidity which reduces static and settles dust particles to the ground. The particles simply become too heavy to float, which makes this an easy and environmentally safe solution to a common problem.
