Do I need a filter for my spray gun?
The filters are necessary for high pressure airless paint spray equipment, because there is some dirty / grains / small particles or dried paint not cleaned thoroughly in previous spraying jobs. There’re 4 different color filters with different mesh for different paint material.
Are paint sprayer nozzles universal?
Threads on the spray guard are universal – the standard size is 7/8” – and fit most spray guns.
Are HVLP spray gun tips interchangeable?
Choosing the proper HVLP spray gun tip size will give you the right combination of speed, efficiency, results and ease of clean-up. Most guns have the option of several different- sized spray tip openings with a matching needle for each one.
What is the difference between compliant and HVLP spray guns?
Compliant guns with their higher atomizing air pressure at the air cap will always atomize a coating finer than HVLP. As an example, compliant air spray will atomize water-based and industrial coatings easier than HVLP.
What size is a 515 spray tip?
Thus, a 515 tip denotes an orifice measuring 15 thousandths of an inch in diameter.
Are airless paint sprayer tips interchangeable?
Airless spray tips require their own tip guard/tip holder. These are usually ⅞ fitting, and they’re interchangeable between the different brand guns.
What is better HVLP or LVLP?
The FPro LVLP spray gun technology atomizes difficult coatings, higher viscosities, water borne and higher flow rates better than HVLP guns. The LVLP guns applies coatings faster making them better suited for large objects and high production applications.
Can you spray latex paint with an HVLP sprayer?
HVLP systems are not designed to spray heavier bodied latex paint. If you look at most professional airless paint sprayers designed for latex paint, they are actually pumps, and use no air.
Are LVLP spray guns any good?
LVLP spray guns are better than HVLP spray guns because they produce few defects. This is because air bubbles can be produced in high volume which can cause a lot of defects. The LVLP uses low pressure and a thin nozzle which allows a low volume of paint to be pushed out of the gun.
Can you use HVLP for clear coat?
When spraying clear coat I usually like to up the pressure 2-3 psi for a little more atomization and better flow out. 28-29 PSI being the sweet spot in my opinion. Most HVLP spray guns will use up 10-14 scfm (air volume) at 40 psi. (Volume of air pressure per cubic foot).
What is a conventional spray gun?
Conventional (air) Spray Conventional or air-atomized spray uses clean, dry compressed air to both transfer the coating from a pressurized pot into the material hose (known as pot pressure) and to atomize the stream of paint as it exits the nozzle of the spray gun (known as atomization pressure).
