Abstract

Electrostatic oiler are made as the research object, the multiple field spray characteristics of air flow field, electric field and discrete fog field in the process of spraying were analyzed. The influence of electrostatic spray deposition characteristics has been studied by changing the electrostatic voltage and electrode gap. The experiment about electrostatic oil spray has been verified. The results show that droplets of axial velocity are larger in the outlet of spray field near the larger intensity area. Near the metal plate, the air flow accelerates the droplets and makes the fog area diffused. Due to the droplets deposition and diffusion on the metal plate, the air is around in motion. With the electrostatic voltage increases, the droplet size decreases to a certain value then basically unchanged and afterwards the droplet size increases as the electrodes distance increases. The droplet deposition area increases first and then decreases with the increase in voltage, and then decreases with the increasing in electrodes distance; the density fluctuation of the droplet deposition is uniform and the deposition amount is moderate. When the voltage reaches 50 to 60 kV and the electrode spacing reaches 195 to 225 mm, the electrostatic spray atomization effect is better.
