How to choose a spray gun

When you need to finish a furniture or more, a spray gun is a tool you should never forget. With various versions available in the market, choosing the best one becomes such a difficult task to do. Here are some tips before buying your own spray gun.

  • a. First, find out how much spray you need. If you need a spray gun, for example Sata Spray gun which can work efficiently and quicker, then you should choose air-assisted airless type, but if you only need to do home-scale task, you should choose HVLP model since it is cheaper
  • b. Consider other tools you may need for the work. If there is any compressor in your garage or devices which need compressor, you may need to purchase a gun with HVLP compressor, but be sure that the compressor can work efficiently with enough psi. Check the device.
  • c. If you want to reduce the cost, try to use a system with HVLP turbine. You can use up to 3 – 5 stage turbine which will provide 6 psi spray power
  • d. Choose cup type you need for the work where you will place the finish. There are 3 main types of cup: gravity, remote pressure, and pressurized siphon. Choose the second type if you need to complete big task with big cup in need or third type if you just need to do small task with HVLP turbine or even the first type if you have HVLP compressor and just small task to.

Another thing you should prepare is the cost you spent to purchase the product. Have a research about the price before purchasing anything, to minimalize the risk.
