Air Spray Guns are the go-to solution for professional paint applications in the finishing industries. Air spray equipment comes in several types, available with different spray unit configurations, and is crucial for industries that require high-quality paint finishings, including:
At SprayPlant, we stock a wide range of professional spray guns to satisfy a variety of potential paint applications. If you’re uncertain about the right air spray equipment for your professional needs, our expert team is at your disposal to guide you through the process.
With different types of air sprayers for several applications, sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in deciding what type of gun is the best fit for your needs. Below, you can find some information about the individual characteristics of the different types of the available Professional Air Paint Spray Guns:
Suction guns are equipped with an air cap, which creates suction and draws material into the gun, atomising the paint with compressed air. Generally, suction spray guns require more air than their gravity counterparts. Siphon feed guns usually are able to carry more fluid than gravity guns, and can be set down without the need for a gun holder.
Contrarily, gravity guns feature a container, which is attached to the top of the gun, to fill the gun with paint. A trigger allows the user to adjust the compressed air flowing through the air spray gun’s nozzle, atomising the paint. Thanks to their container, they don’t need to draw up the fluid and are more air efficient. Gravity air spray guns work well in tight spaces, where other models could fail by touching the painting surface. Finally, thanks to their semi-transparent cups, the operator can see when they are running low on paint, not running the risk of paint-flow interruptions.
Pressured spray guns, often the best solution in terms of control of painting and painting in high viscosity conditions, are fed pressurised fluid from a tank or pump. Generally, pressured air spray guns are adopted for high-volume coating use thanks to their high capacity. Professional pressure spray guns are considered the go-to solution for industrial applications where large amounts of paint need to be applied.
