How To Effectively Adjust Your Spray Gun Pattern

 

How To Effectively Adjust Your Spray Gun Pattern

 

This video is a step by step guide to show you how to effectively adjust your spray gun pattern. The equipment utilized for this video is the Devilbiss Spray Gun with 1.4MM Needle (standard).

The Fan adjustment (top knob) – clockwise adjustments to narrow pattern, counterclockwise adjustments for wider pattern.

The Needle adjustment (bottom knob) – for fine tuning of fluid flow rate

Air Power recommends that all fluid flow rate adjustments take place on your outbound fluid pressure regulator. By regulating fluid utilizing the fluid needle it will increase needle wear and result in decreased life expectancy. Properly setting your outbound fluid at your fluid source (pressure pot, pump, etc.) utilizing a properly set outbound fluid regulator is the preferred and most effective fluid setting measurement.

How To Properly Set Up A Binks Pressure Pot and Spray Gun Fluid Flow Rate

How To Properly Set Up A Binks Pressure Pot and Spray Gun Fluid Flow Rate

 

Equipment Utilized – Binks Dual Regulated Pressure Pot + Devilbiss Compact Trans Tech Spray Gun with 1.4mm Fluid Needle

Ist Regulator is for Pot Fluid – ie. Outbound fluid pressure. A good starting point for outbound fluid pressure is 10 lbs.
2nd Regulator is for spray gun atomization air. A good starting point for spray gun atomization air is “double” that of starting fluid pressure.

In order to set your outbound spray gun atomization air, you MUST set using dynamic air pressure (ie. With the gun trigger depressed). When setting fluid flow rate – ultimately this is determined by production demands, but in most cases your fluid stream should be between 6-12 inches from the end of a gun.

More about Graco ProMix PD2K System

More about Graco ProMix PD2K System

The ProMix PD2K mixes the material close to the gun so the flush zone is significantly smaller. This allows customers to use less paint, spend less on disposal costs and allows for faster color changes. And because there is limited mixed material in the system, the ProMix PD2K is ideal for short pot life materials. It is also compatible with acid-based materials.

Graco has specific ProMix proportioners that are designed to manage tough acid catalyst applications like cabinetry and bar countertops. The corrosion resistance fluid section, plus the smart fluid plate with 316 and 17-4 SST catalyst sections, can easily handle strong acid catalysts.

 

Get More Paint on Product with Electrostatic Spray Guns

Background

Instead of using a spray booth to paint their products, they use exhaust plenum. Most colors used are enamel solvent based and the products painted are made up of 50% expanded steel, which is difficult to coat and very time consuming. The HVLP non electrostatic spray gun they were using produced a large amount of overspray.

 

Air Power Solution

Air Power Inc. introduced the Ransburg RansFlex 45kV, an electrostatic spray gun with much less overspray. The 45kV is better on expanded metal and less faraday cage resistance.
