To get most to all water and vapor out of your line when painting is actually easy. First you need an inline water separator, and an extra 20 feet of air hose. Run the air hose off the compressor and coil it up. Put it in a bucket of icewater. Put the water trap or inline separator on after the bucket and run hose from that to your paint gun. Put a small disposable water absorber on before the paint gun too. I painted many cars like this and had horrible water problems before I did this. Now there is basically no water getting past the seperstor. Just remember to drain separator often and draining the compressor tank before you paint is good practice also.

An in-line water separator should be used before the supply line, a good air filter wouldn't hurt either.

I am using an iwata eclipse cs airbrush with an iwata compressor. the comopressor seems to be working fine when power, but the airbrush is not getting and air. when i push down for air release, nothing...


Air brushes us a Theory called a "venturi" in where air pressure lowers the pressure where the paint is kept and causes it to go out the nozzle. I would try seeing if there is an obstruction in the hoses to the brush and confirm that the compressor is moving air. If none of these things are an issue also while cleaning the parts may give the appearance that the item is clean then try soaking them over night in paint thinner and replacing the O-rings and gaskets.

Bubbles in color cup of airbrush


I assume you have adjusted the nozzle... On my unit, there is a SMALL hole in the cap for the cups to let in air above the paint. Also OFTEN the paint must be thinned to use in an airbrush. Since you havent been able to draw water even, thinning is NOT the problem.

The airbrush aspirates the paint by Bernouli's principle, that is where there is higher velocity of a fluid, there is a lower pressure. The nozzle creates that and the adjustment is important. On mine which is a "Wren", I think by Binks there is a conical piece that the paint comes out of with a throttling needle. This has the be unscrewed to open the paint path and adjust it. The air flows at high speed around this cone creating a vacuum.

The headline says "Eclipse" but that is a gravity feed so I suspect that is the old Fixya problem of having incomplete choices to pick from.

I have some severe free flow goin on, on my hpbcs iwata eclipse


It sounds like you have a problem with the air valve. Possible deterioration of the valve material? I am not sure what they use, but if it is a rubber the cleaning thinner MAY have destroyed its properties if the cleaner got into the air path and valve.

Try replacing cup gasket first then clean all inlets and outlets completely, check that all valves operate properally, and all seals and o-rings are in good condition. Clean and lubricate adjustment fluid valve.
