General Sprayers Hints and Tips

GUN LAW FOR A PERFECT FINISH

  • NEVER SUBMERGE A SPRAY GUN IN SOLVENT! PAINT ONLY RUNS THROUGH 1 ½ INCHES OF THE INSIDE OF A GRAVITY SPRAY GUN. PAINT FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE CUP TO THE END OF THE FLUID TIP, OVER SPRAY ON THE OUTSIDE BODY CAN BE REMOVED WITH A SOLVENT SOAKED RAG OR SOFT BURSH DIPPED IN SOLVENT.
  • WHEN USING A GUN CLEANING MACHINE BLOCK ALL THE AIRWAYS IN THE GUN, AS SOLVENT DOES DAMAGES THE WORKING PARTS OF THE AIR VALVE ETC INSIDE EVERY TYPE OF SPRAY GUN.
  • ALWAYS KEEP THE MOVING PARTS OF A SPRAY GUN LUBRICATED WITH GUN LUBE OR VEGETABLE OIL.
  • BECAUSE OF THEIR DESIGN AND BUILD MODERN AIR CAPS SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT TO SOAK IN SOLVENT.
  • TIPS AND NEEDLES ARE EASILY CLEANED WITHOUT BEING LEFT TO SOAK.
  • A PAINTER SHOULD ALWAYS KNOW WHAT AIR PRESSURE HE HAS AT THE HANDLE OR HEAD OF THE SPRAY GUN, SO AN AIR REGUALTOR SHOULD ALWAYS BE FITTED TO ACHIEVE THE BEST FINISH.
  • ANALOGUE GUN AIR REGULATORS SHOULD ALWAYS BE TURNED OFF WHILE THE GUN AIR REGULATORS SHOULD ALWAYS BE TURNED OFF WHILE THE GUN IS BEING CONNECTED TO THE AIR LINE, AS FULL AIR PRESSURE HITTING THE CALIBRATED SPRING IN THE GAUGE IS STRETCHED, DAMAGING IT, AND THEREFORE DYSFUNCTIONING THE CALIBRATION = INCORRECT AIR PRESSURE BEING DELIVERED AT THE AIR CAP.

THE AIR LINE IS THE LIFE LINE

  • DELIVERING COMPRESSED AIR REGULATOR IDEALLY SHOULD BE VIA A PLUMBED IN MAIN WHICH TOTALS A LARGER DIA THAN THE AIR LINES LEAVING THE REGULATOR.
  • COMPRESSED AIR IS SLOWED DOWN BY THE WORKINGS OF ALL AIR REGULATORS, SO THE DELIVERY OF AIR TO THE REG NEEDS TO BE OF A HIGHER VOLUME THAN THAT BEING TAKEN, THUS KEEP A CONSTANT SUPPLY AND THE CORRECT VOLUME OF AIR TO THE SPRAYER.
  • REGULATORS WITH ONE BOWL IN GENERAL PRODUCE AIR TO 0.5 MICRON GOOD ENOUGH TO POWER AIR TOOLS INCLUDING SPRAY GUNS.
  • IF TH AIR FROM THE REGULATOR IS TO BE USED FOR BREATHING AND SPRAYING, AIR REGULATORS DELIVERING AIR TO 0.01 MICRONS ARE NEEDED TO DELIVER VERY CLEAN FORCE FED AIR TO AIR FED MASK USUALLY A DOUBLE BOWLED REGULATOR SHOULD BE USED.
  • FOR BELT AND BRACES BREATHING AND SPRAYING AIR IS VIA A TRIPLE BOWLED FILTER, WHICH HAS A CHARCOAL FILTER ADDED TO THE DOUBLE BOWLED TYPE FILTER REGULATORS.
