is your old gun HVLP??? cause the GTI is, meaning high volume low pressure, its best to use 1/2" hose for hvlp, but i use 3/8 at my home shop with no problems,
at work i have 1/2" with all hvlp connectors, my spray hose is 20ft, with a regulator at the base at 40ish psi i think, i spray with the gauge/regulator on the gun reading 20psi
at home shop, everything is 3/8, i have no regulator, 60 gallon tank, then 50ft hose, in to 40 gallon tank, another 50ft, in to my filtration station, then i have a 30 ft hose, the gauge/regulator on my gun is at 15 psi, and sprays just like it does at work.
remember hvlp guns have a higher efficiency rate, meaning they put more product on the substrate than in the air, its like 60-40, with conventionals its like 40-60.
i would set the regulator between 40-60 psi, then set your gauge at your gun at 20 psi, check and see if there is any pressure drop, if there is, make the adjustments as needed(most likely would have to lower the pressure on the reg on the tank) when your gun sprays at 20 psi at the gauge, and you can pull the trigger off and on, and the pressure doesn't fluctuate your good! remember 23psi at the gauge is 10 psi at the cap.Originally posted by socal@Nov 6 2007, 06:57 PM~9170974
hey 6deuced, i have a GTI i got the 3/8 50ft hose with the big hvlp fittings on the end. i have it hooked to my regulator on my compressor, what would you set it at, the regulator?
if you are spraying two stage metallic what tip would you use for metallic?
