Industrial paint equipment can make a tremendous difference in your production and finish quality. To maximize your benefit from your industrial paint gun, it is advisable that you choose proper industrial paint sprayer which is very much suitable for your application needs. Always keep in mind the below-mentioned tips while choosing the industrial paint gun that meets all your finishing needs perfectly.
WHAT EQUIPMENT WILL YOU PRIMARILY PAINT? The first and the main thing that will help you out in selecting the proper type of spray gun is Coating, whether it be HVLP or Conventional, Gravity, Suction, or Pressure-fed, and the proper fluid nozzle size to use. It is ultimately best to test the material with your spray gun to determine if it will work for you, you can also choose well by evaluating the following.
If the material is very heavy bodied, you will likely use a conventional spray gun. This will allow application of a lot of air pressure to atomize the material. Also, the conventional spray guns are cheaper than the HVLP Spray Guns which make them a good choice if you consider the cost of maintenance in future. If the material is of light viscosity, you can use HVLP Spray Guns. It has an advantage: it wastes less paint than conventional spray guns. For lighter bodied material, you can use suction or gravity fed spray guns in HVLP or Conventional application styles.
HOW MUCH ARE PRODUCTION YOU LOOKING TO ACHIEVE? This question will help you look for the answer as to which air cap and fluid nozzle setup would be proper to use the spray gun? Essentially, the larger the fluid nozzle the quicker the spray gun will apply coatings and the better it will be to apply heavy coatings. But if the spraying needs to be done over the heavy materials, then consider a large fluid nozzle.
For lighter coatings, a small fluid nozzle is best suitable. In addition to the fluid nozzle, the air cap needs to be properly matched to your spray gun. The more CFM an air cap handles, the larger the production ability of the air cap. If you have a large nozzle, you will need a large air cap and if you have a small nozzle you typically will want a smaller air cap.
YOU NEED THE SPRAY REGULARLY OR FOR SINGLE PROJECT? This question will help you decide whether a high-quality spray gun or a budget spray gun will be best suitable for your needs. Many times people end up buying the low-priced spray gun and continue replacing it year after year. But they do not tend to realize that this process is expensive in the long run. On the other hand, the high-quality industrial paint sprayer can be kept for a lifetime and require only occasional replacement of a part. Also, the higher quality industrial paint guns maintain a uniform spray pattern over multiple uses.
Keep the aforementioned three points always in mind as they will help you determine the proper industrial paint equipment for your facility.
