The charge-to-mass ratio (q/m) of individual particles plays a vital role in the powder coating process. Simultaneous measurements of particle size and electrostatic charge were performed on triboelectrically charged powder paint and other powders in the particle size range 1.0 to 65.0 μm in diameter. An electrical single particle aerodynamic relaxation time (ESPART) analyzer was used to measure electrostatic charge (q) and aerodynamic size (da) distributions on a single particle basis and in a noninvasive manner. The powders were triboelectrically charged against nonconducting surfaces. Experimental data show that (1) the magnitude of the charge increases linearly with the surface area of the particle and consequently, the charge-to-mass ratio of the particles decreases inversely with respect to da in the entire size range, and (2) twenty to sixty percent of the particles were charged with opposite polarity. The average charge attained by particles larger than 4.0 μm in diameter was less than the Gaussian limit of saturation charge. The charge-to-mass ratio of the bulk powder sample depends upon the range of particle size in the sample. The mass median aerodynamic diameter of the sample studied was 30.0 μm with the geometric standard deviation of 2.0
