Chicago, IL – The drinking water for 652,000 people in Illinois could be at risk of radioactive contamination from a leak or accident at a local nuclear power plant, says a new study released today by the Illinois Public Interest Research Group Education Fund (Illinois PIRG).

Nuclear power plants in Illinois pose a risk to drinking water for more than 600,000 Illinoisans,” said Brian Imus, Illinois PIRG state Director. “An accident like the one in Fukushima, Japan or a leak could spew cancer-causing radioactive waste into our drinking water.”

     Airless spray
    In the case of airless spraying, the dispersion of the paint material occurs due to a sharp pressure drop. The paint and varnish material is supplied from a special-shaped nozzle at a pressure of 200-250 atmospheres. The high dimensional uniformity of the droplets allows you to get a high-quality film and avoid losses due to colorful fog. The decorative quality of the resulting film is worse with airless spraying than with pneumatic spraying.
