Cleaning Your Airless Sprayer

A most common cause of airless spray gun problems and early failure are a result of incorrect cleaning and airless paint sprayer storage procedures.

When your airless paint spray job has completed the first step is to recover as much of the remaining paint that still remains in the airless spray unit. Consult your airless paint sprayer operation manual for the recommended procedure to remove any remaining paint from the airless machine and to properly flush the airless unit out.

Airless Spray Hose

Most airless spray equipment uses a high pressure paint hose between the airless pump and the airless spray gun, excluding handheld airless paint sprayers which naturally do not use high pressure airless paint hose.

Excluding budget orientated DIY airless spray pump units which are often supplied with 25 feet or 7.5 m of airless paint spray hose the most common length found fitted standard to airless paint sprayers is 50 feet or 15 m in length. The most common internal diameter airless paint spray hose is 1/4 inch or 6 mm ID.

Air Assisted Airless Spray

Air assisted airless spray painting, as the name implies, is airless spray, assisted with compressed air atomisation. This mix of paint atomising technologies enables faster application rates than is possible with conventional or HVLP spray painting while achieving transfer efficiencies that rival, or some even argue, betters transfer efficiencies of HVLP spray painting equipment.

Airless Not Holding Pressure

If you have an airless paint sprayer that is not holding the same pressure it used to while spraying paint there are a few simple checks which can be made to hopefully identify the cause of the pressure loss.

These tests make the assumption that your airless spray machine is already priming and building pressure but then while spraying the pressure is lower than it used to be, or should be.
