Double Diaphragm Pumps

As an alternative to using a pressure pot in conjunction with spray painting, many manufacturers offer a range of double diaphragm pumps that basically perform the same task.

Although a double diaphragm pump has many more moving parts and is much more complex than a simple pressure pot there are several benefits which may make the additional cost of a double diaphragm pump viable in certain spray painting environments.

Air Pressure Regulators

Most air compressors have a maximum static air pressure of between 100 to 120 PSI, 689.5 to 827.4 Kpa, at which point the air compressor pump turns off. This amount of air pressure is way too high for spray painting with an air spray gun so an air pressure regulator is used.

Using Air Spray Guns

This general guide to using an air paint spray gun can apply to conventional air paint spray guns, HVLP air paint spray guns and LVLP air paint spray guns in gravity feed, suction or pressure feed variants.

The first thing to check is the paint manufacturers technical data sheet which will recommend a fluid nozzle size and often an air paint spray gun type for use with their coating.

The technical data sheet should also specify maximum thinning that is allowed for air paint spray applications.
