Fluid Delivery Options for Wood Finishing

Posted: 03/06/2013 11:34AM


1. Pressure Feed: this option uses an external pressure source to force air and fluid to the spray gun nozzle. Air and fluid are then mixed outside the nozzle. Advantages: This method delivers higher volumes of fluid than other gun setups and will spray a wider range of materials. It also enables independent control of fluid pressures.

2. Gravity Feed: The cup is located above the gun and the force of gravity pushes the fluid into the gun. Advantages: This method offers quick color changes and convenience on small jobs or touch-up applications.

3. Siphon Feed: Siphon hookups use vacuum created at the nozzle to draw fluid from a cup. Advantages: This system offers quick material/color changes.
