  • Page 3 Spraying Methods HVLP Two types of HVLP systems dominate the painting contractor market: portable turbines and direct hook-up guns. The two systems use completely different air sources, but atomize material in similar manners. Portable Turbine Most commonly found in the painting contractor market for portable applications, this type of HVLP system uses a centrifugal blower motor as the air source.
  • Page 4 Spraying Methods Air-assisted airless sprayers offer fine finish capabilities combined with Air-Assisted Airless a medium production rate. Air-assisted technology uses a combination of airless and air spray. Fluid pressure ranges from 200 to 1500 PSI, with air intermixed at 5 to 25 PSI. The systems typically are found in stationary and portable fine finish production applications.
  • Page 5 How Does HVLP Work? A pressure vessel (1-quart cup, 2-quart cup, or pressure pot) supplies paint to the gun, where a high volume of low pressure air intersects with the paint stream breaking the paint into small particles. This process is called atomization.
  • Page 6 How to get acquainted with HVLP HVLP sprayers are not for every painter. Be certain that HVLP is the right fit for your finishing application. Then match the correct unit size and tip size to the type of materials you will use. After you have determined the answers to these questions, consider more specific criteria: What materials will they be spraying?
  • Page 7: Air Source

    HVLP System Components As with most sprayers, three distinct components make up an HVLP system: air source, air hose, and HVLP spray gun. There are several variations of these components depending upon the manufacturer. We will deal primarily with CAPSPRAY equipment. Air Source The air source is the heart of the system.
  • Page 8: Spray Guns

    HVLP System Components Please note that while air flow (CFM) and pressure (PSI) are both important in determining the turbine’s ability to atomize coatings, pressure is the key. All manufacturers rate their turbines in the range of 50-170 CFM at free flow (turbine unrestricted, no hose or gun attached).

    Maxum II and Maxum Elite Air Cap Adjustments Air Cap CAPSPRAY‘s exclusively designed guided air cap makes it virtually impossible for the painting contractor to misalign. This translates to better spray pattern control. The air cap design determines the quality of the spray pattern. It is crucial the air cap remains clean and free of dried paint.

    Spray Techniques Spraying Techniques Position the spray gun perpendicular to and 1 to 8 inches from the spray surface. Spray parallel to the surface and use controlled, smooth passes at an even speed. Start by applying a thin coat of material on the first pass and allow it to tac before applying a second, slightly heavier coat.

  • Page 17: Cleaning Your Equipment

    Cleaning Your Equipment It is important to clean your spray gun thoroughly after each use. Spray Gun 1. Empty the spray material from cup. 2. Pour a small amount of the appropriate solvent in the cup and attach the cup to the spray gun.
  • Page 18 HVLP Spray Equipment Troubleshooting Problem Cause Solution Little or no material out of nozzle. Out of paint. Fill cup or pot with paint. Air cap screwed clockwise too far. Adjust air cap. Check valve plugged. Clean or replace check valve assembly. Material viscosity too heavy.
  • Page 19 HVLP Spray Equipment/Finish Troubleshooting Problem Cause Solution Filter warning light on. Air filters clogged. Clean or replace filters. No trigger pull. Material adjustment knob too tight. Turn counter-clockwise. Unit has no power. Blown fuse/tripped breaker reset. Check and replace fuse. Cup doesn't pressurize.
