AW-Lake Designs World’s First Coriolis Mass Flow Meter for Automotive Electrostatic Paint Spray System

As automotive plants switch from solvent- to water-based paints to reduce VOCs in meeting environmental compliance, standard high-precision gear meters are no longer suitable for flow feedback. Due to the lubricity of most water-based paints, flow technology must be compatible with high-friction paints. To address this challenge, AW-Lake developed the world’s first Coriolis Mass Flow Meter compatible with the electrostatic water-borne paints and coatings. Used within an electrostatic application system, the TRICOR Specialty Flow Meter features fiber optics for pulse output/input to download output to a PLC.
