how to Select the Correct Airless Paint Sprayer
Selecting the Correct Airless Paint Sprayer For the Job
One of the first decisions that you need to make when choosing an airless paint sprayer has to do with the size job that you are going to be doing. If you’re just going to be doing smaller jobs around the house, you can generally pick up a small paint sprayer like our PT380E, this model can certainly handle small to medium-size painting jobs around the home.
The sprayer kit contains everything ready to paint, the airless spray gun with 517 spray tip, and one 1/4″*25ft painting hose, all you need to do is just unpack the carton, connect the hose to the pump and spray gun, and then spray it. No matter you spray the emulsion / acrylic paint / latex for interior / exterior / roofing, or spraying the lacquer / resin / primer / filler for cabinet / window / door, it will help you handle the paint job quickly, and the import the finish will be very nice.
For larger jobs, you may want to have a heavier duty unit . You can purchase a larger pump with minimum 2L/min output capacity, depending on your needs and budget. The large pump covers electric sprayer from 2L to 7L per minute, and hydraulic pump from 6L to 13L, Gas powered sprayer from 4L to 8L…..
Another thing that needs to be taken into consideration is the different tips shapes and sizes that are available. Some are going to
be well-suited for spraying smaller items, but you may need to get a larger tip in order to spray a larger area. For example,
spraying a wall will require that you get a larger tip than if you were just spraying a chair. below is suggestion and guide available for these
various sizes spray tips selection, that can act as a guide to help you choose one that is going to work well for you.
If you have an extremely big job that needs to be done quickly, you may want to consider hydraulic paint sprayers because it can spray the heaviest coating like putty, plaster, epoxy, anti-corrosive coating, bitumen, water proofing material, etc.
Choosing airless paint sprayers does take a little bit of looking into, but generally speaking, they are interchangeable for the
most part. For example, a smaller paint sprayer may be able to handle a larger job, provided you don’t do it on a regular basis.
The PT380E paint sprayer will drastically cut the time it takes you to paint compared to using a brush and roller. It’s
very useful for painting inside or outside of your home as well as fences and decks. But PT2200 is for hobby user / homeowner who only spray up to 20 gallons per month, or maybe 60 gallons per year. But PT380E is a professional paint sprayer pump for small contractor use. It can be used for daily use every week every month. Maybe you need to change some worn parts, but then after changing, keep spraying again.
