IPI measurements of high-density, rotary cup paint sprays: capabilities and limitations

Interferometric Particle Imaging is used to measure droplet size and velocity of rotary cup paint spray of high droplet density under actual industrial conditions. The goal of the measurements is to capture the drop size and velocity spectrum immediately after atomization or immediately before impact on the surface to be coated. The instrument was optimized to measure the particles down to several microns with the optics removed far away from the spray.
