SPRAY GUN OPERATION MANUAL
SB-E-301-C
Description
The JGX-502 Spray Gun is a conventional air spray
gun, patterned after the JGA series, whose functions
are similar to standard air spray gun models. The gun
is available in three types:gravity feed,
suction feed,
and pressure feed,
in order to cover the widest range
of applications.
With all areas of the fluid passages made from stain-
less steel, the JGX-502 can be used with a wide range
of paints,
with the only exception being those of a
highly corrosive and/or abrasive nature.
The use of
such materials will require thorough cleaning
and
frequent part replacement.
Any questions regarding the operation of the JGX
Spray Gun should be directed to us or our distribu-tors
BEFORE use.
Types and Specifications
The JGX are specified when ordering as follows;
J G X - 5 0 2
A i r c a p N o .
T i p S i z e
<Example> JGX-502-143-FF-G
F e e d T y p e .
This represents a gun with a number 143 Aircap, a
Size FF Fluid Tip, and set up for Gravity Feed.
Operations
Before using the gun,
the needle packing, which is
shipped loose to avoid binding, should be adjusted.
The
packing
gland (Part #7)
should
be
gradually
screwed clockwise while triggering the gun up to the
point where the needle does not smoothly return to
the closed-position.
At this point the packing gland
should be slightly loosened by screwing it in counter-
clockwise so that the needle moves freely.
Adjust the atomizing air pressure to the lowest level
possible and commensurate with proper
atomization
quality desired,
to minimize overspray and maximize
paint transfer efficiency.
The spray gun should be used at all times perpen-
dicular to the surface to be coated at a distance of
150-200mm.
Maintenance
The gun should be cleaned and lubricated daily to
maintain its optimum performance.
Clean the paint
passages thoroughly by spraying solvents through the
gun after use.
The gun body should never be soaked in the solvent
for cleaning.
Exterior surface should only be wiped
with solvent dampened rags.
The air caps should be detached from the gnu and
soaked in the solvent.
Use toothpicks to remove any paint build up from the
aircap holes.
NEVER use metal objects to clean the
aircaps in order to avoid damage to the fine holes,
which will cause the spray pattern to become dis-
torted.
A drop of lubricant should be applied regularly to the
trigger bearing stud(#25),
the stem of the air valve
assembly(#21), and the needle packing gland (#7). For
optimum results use SSL-10 Spray Gun Oil.
The Needle Spring(#11) and the Air Valve Spring(#22)
should be lightly greased.
Do not lubricate or grease
excessively
in order to avoid clogging in the air
passages.
Replacement of Parts
A wrench(JGX-34) is provided with the gun.
When replacing the fluid tips,
ensure that the Fluid
Needle Adjustment Screw is removed,
and also en-
sure that the Spreader Valve is in the fully open
(counterclockwise) position.
Whenever the Fluid Inlet Nipple(#23) or the Air Inlet
Nipple(#28) are replaced,
a sealant material such as
Loctite 242,
should be applied to the thread before
inserting it into the gun body. The same sealant should
also be used on the body thread of the Spreader
Valve(#13)and the Cheater Valve(#27).
