Always prepare paint in a clean, dust-free environment. Paint has a remarkable ability to pick up dirt. Dirty paint will not only clog your spray gun, but it will also ruin your paint job. Get in the habit of always pouring paint into the cup or tank through a paint strainer
There are many advantages to using electrostatic spray equipment. The primary advantage is an increase in transfer efficiency. (45% – 90%) With the increase in transfer efficiency, clean-up costs go down, material usage drops and disposal cost decrease. Electrostatic methods also lower solvent emissions into the air since less coating material is needed to coat each part.
If a fluid regulator fails it can no longer hold back fluid pressure. If the outlet pressure climbs up to equalize with the inlet pressure when you stop dispensing, the regulator has lost the ability to shutoff or fully regulate flow. If you have pressure limits set you will get a High Outlet Pressure alarm. If you have job volume limits set you will get a High Volume On Last Job alarm.
It is recommended that you flush the unit out every night to prevent paint from curing in the pump, which can be time consuming and costly to correct. Flush per the instruction and store the sprayer with mineral spirits in the hose and gun and mineral spirits or pump armor in the pump.
Our pumps are designed to withstand almost all solvents and cleaning solutions. In general, it is recommended that you complete your cleaning by flushing mineral spirits through the pump section, but other petroleum-based products and cleaning solutions will suffice if necessary. Also it is discouraged to blend solvent can be hazardous.
It’s a good practice to check the packing nut on a weekly basis and slightly tighten if it is necessary. Paint visible in the wet cup or on the rod surface is an indication that paint is starting to pass by the throat packing and the packing nut needs to be tightened. Depending on the style, put a flat-blade screwdriver or punch on the head of the packing nut and tap it lightly with a hammer. Tighten just enough to stop the paint leakage, DO NOT over-tighten. New or repacked pumps generally need retightening after the first several gallons. If the nut has been tightened completely and paint continues to leak past the seals, repack the pump.
