Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

Air flow control with a Accuspray 10 series cup gun.

I'm marrying an Accuspray 10 series cup gun to a Wagner 2900 4-stage HVLP turbine (8 CFM). Neither the gun or the turbine provide any means of air flow control. The gun has a .9mm tip and a #7 air cap. It will be used for spraying Valspar nitrocellulose lacquer for cabinets. With the set-up as it stands, do you think I will need to be able to control my air-flow. Accuspray makes an air regulator, but it's for taming the air that comes from a compressor. The inlet fitting is for a 1/4'' NPT fitting, not the turbine fitting. Any suggestions or do I really need the air regulator?

Thanks in advance.

You shouldn't have to control air flow - just adjust fluid to provide a good spray pattern. If you feel you need to slow down application rate you can buy a garden hose shut-off valve at your local hardware store that will thread onto your air line just before the quick disconnect at the gun.

Will not suck the paint just air is coming out


Hello I just saw this in my inbox, let me see if I can help you-
NOTE: Whenever you are going to spray with any HVLP or cup-gun
strain paint through either a strainer bag or an Automotive strainer cone to remove any kind of debris from the paint that can clog the delivery tube that sucks the paint up from the "cup" and into the fluid needle.
yes even though "Wagner" says the Flexio will spray un-thinned Latex-
However by thinning your paint 10% to 15% you will get better coverage and the paint will move through the gun better
If you have no paint coming out try adjusting the fluid material knob on top-

Also try holding a piece of card in front of the the Tip and try all your Adjustments and you should start seeing the paint spraying onto the piece of cardboard or wall.

Thanks,

The Wagner Capspray 9000 HVLP is about 20 years old, but you should be able to find parts, at least for the HVLP gun. The manual for the turbine is #0276989. If you are in the US try Scott at American Airless Wagner Titan Graco Paint Sprayers or in Europe try us at:

The hose on my accuspray turbine Hvlp system is collapsing once it gets hot. Do hoses wear out like this, and can I replace re hose with a standard garden hose, or do I need to buy an accuspray hose?...


The hose supplied by Accuspray does soften as it warms up but should not be collapsing. Most hvlp turbine system manufacturers supply a hose with a helix reinforced hose that will not collapse.

The majority of hoses for hvlp systems are 3/4" inside diameter hose like the Accuspray hose and will work with your system.

The fittings will work with any 3/4" garden hose. Problem with using garden hose is that the cheap ones will collapse and kink and the quality ones will be heavy.

Finish is rough


Spraying smooth needs both the right airflow and right viscosity. Since your getting lap lines I would say your putting it on too thick. Thin down your coat, it should be approximately the thiness of water.
