Want a Killer Paint Job? Then Pay Attention To your Binks Spray Gun Air Pressure
In this post, I will tell you about the correct Binks spray gun air pressure along with HVLP.LVLP, spray guns and compressors.
Air pressure doesn’t refer to air cap pressure but Binks air pressure gun at the spray gun dial neck and only when the trigger is pulled.
Binks HVLP Air Pressure Setting for Base Coat Clear Coat (High Volume Low Pressure)
When spraying base coat clear spray it at the 26-29 PSI. This is measured by pulling the trigger and letting the airflow through the tip of your Binks gun. In this case, your dial will say the reading of 26-29 PSI.
For better flow and atomization 2-3 PSI pressure is suitable. 28029 is the best spot.
Basically, Binks HVLP spray guns mostly require 10-14 scfm at 40 psi. (Volume of air pressure per cubic foot). Pressure)
(LVLP) Air Pressure Setting (Low Volume Low
10-15 PSI when the trigger is pulled is best to set your gun.
Mostly I spray at 17 PSI when doing the spraying base and 20-25 for clear coat. Vey low spray guns are used in it. I usually do these things because I have many Binks air guns for spraying purposes.
The normal consumption of scfm is around 5-7 and 40 PSI volume of air is used.
What Size Air Compressor Do You Need To Set Up Shop?
Air compressor rating is the main thing while shopping for them. Today ratings of air compressors are very inflated which means rating number should be checked by you under the load. This is the horsepower rating. The number on the big box or sticker is just a lie and don’t pay attention to it.
Following is the big lie on the air compressor ratings.
Small DIY Application Air compressors
20-35 gallons of air tank which push 1.5-2.0 horsepower under load is a great setup or in the home garage.
Binks LVLP spray gun will be best for a motorcycle or small car painting. Condensation is a point of concern but it also happens in bigger tanks. Water filters in your setup make it a good preparation point.
The first one should be 10-15 feet from the air compressors and the second one at your gun neck for keeping the water out of lines. You will know best about the small $5 air fillers for threading on the air inlet.
There selling is done at our Binks spray gun store. Also, check Warwick spray gun if you visit. They are of great quality and affordable.
When using a small compressor 110-volt outbox is probably used. Irs maximum power is 2HP without breaking your volt line.
For Hard-Core Hobby and PRO Use Air Compressors
An air gallon of 60-100 is used with a rating power of 4-6 HP. For shops and garages, 60-80 gallons is the most popular one.
240 VAC wiring system is used like the one in-home dryer central AC outlet or mostly a larger 3 phase system.
New Binks spray guns are introduced. This is gaining a lot of popularity. With its German and Japanese craft style, it is gaining very much popularity.
