Graco Electrostatic Demo Kits

Rodney Benfield understands finishing and over the past 31 years at Air Power has learned many skills of the trade.  One known fact is you cannot be successful if not prepared.  Air Power’s Electrostatic Demo Kits allow for just that – being prepared – anyplace, anytime, anywhere.

“These kits are handy” stated Rodney whom has spent a large portion of his time at Air Power focusing on the finishing industry within the Southeast.  “This demo kits stays in my truck and I can deploy it whenever necessary”.

The Air Power Electrostatic Demo Kits contain everything necessary for a successful Graco electrostatic demo including a wide array of nozzles and air caps.  Rodney further specified that “even for existing electrostatic customers, taking in the entire demo kit makes sense.  It allows us to mix/match newly released accessories to optimize the customer’s process and electrostatic experience”

All of Air Power’s finishing specialist have electrostatic demo kits ready to deploy at a moment’s notice.   “Air Power’s primary focus” stated Rodney “is the Southeast and Mexico but, we will go wherever the customer needs us”.

NEW Binks AG-364 Airless Spray Gun

 

Carlisle Fluid Technologies made an innovation in transfer efficiency when they introduced the new Binks AG-364 Airless Spray Gun. This gun achieves high quality results faster, easier and more efficiently than other spray guns on the market.

Available in dead head or recirculation manifolds, this high-quality airless spray gun helps eliminate excessive paint waste and lengthy cleaning time. The AG-364 accomplishes ultimate transfer efficiency, resulting in: reduced overspray, cleaner machines and reduced applied coating cost per part.  Softer, high-integrity fan pattern also allows for the consistent application of materials to detailed profiles and surfaces. The tip holder indexes 45 degrees with insert and is completely adjustable without insert. The versatility of tips utilized on the AG-364 allows for application of multiple wood finish materials.

As a member of the proven AG family, the AG-364 makes it easy to upgrade from air-assisted airless equipment. It utilizes the same pumps, fluid lines, regulators and fluid pressure ranges for a
seamless transition.

Increase Transfer Efficiency

 

Challenge

Customer was looking to improve transfer efficiency on their automated spindle machine spraying primer on various size metal housings.   The existing system utilizes one spray gun set a considerable distance from the parts.  This causes excessive overspray and waste.  Customer also wanted to go from using 55 gallon drums to 5 gallon pails due to settling and solvent flash off in the primer.  The 55 gallon drum sits for around 4 months.  The viscosity needed to be regularly checked and adjusted.

Air Power’s Solution

Equipment utilized – Graco fixed automatic spray guns coupled to a Graco dual regulated pressure pot with agitation.  All controlled via an Air Power custom designed pneumatic control panel for system optimization and performance.

Air Power, Inc. proposed replacing their single gun setup with two guns.  These guns will be mounted on mounts that can be adjusted to effectively cover the various size parts.  This will minimize the amount of overspray and improve the transfer efficiency of the system.  The controls for this system will be contained in a centralized control box.  Fluid supply will utilize a 5 gallon pressure tank.  This will allow the operator to place a 5 gallon bucket of primer into the tank.  This system will be enclosed to minimize solvent flash off.  This will help improve the consistency of the coating as it will not need to be constantly adjusted.  The paint supply will also be exhausted in roughly a week now.  This will allow fresh primer to be sprayed, also improving consistency.

 

Results

  • Customer experienced increased transfer efficiency which saved them money by minimizing the amount of overspray and waste. It also reduced the amount of filtration they were purchasing due to the reduced overspray saving them time and money.
  • Customer reduced solvent flash off due to the switch from 55 gallon to 5 gallon pail saving the operator time from adding additional solvent to the 55 gallon drums.

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.
