In this study, we investigated the induction charging of water sprays and the effect of electric field on the breakup mechanism of liquid sprays. Two different kind of hollow cone hydraulic spray nozzles were used. Our investigation aimed to estimate the Droplet Charge to Mass Ratio (D-CMR) and the dependence of breakup length on electric potential. The experiments revealed that the D-CMR increased with the potential until to a maximum, then started to decrease. At the same time, the breakup length decreased more than 0.5 cm compared to the uncharged value, suggesting that the electric field actually influenced the jet break-up dynamics. For V<Vmax, an induction charging model and a fluid-dynamic one were adopted to compare the theoretical droplet specific charge to experimental one. The experimental data are well described with a corrective factor of 0.243 by the induction charging model.
