Airless spraying has become exceedingly popular over recent years, this is due in part to the ease of application provided by this method and also the faultless finish provided. Due to this popularity there are now numerous varieties of airless paint spraying machines available, despite this diversity at their core these systems utilise similar components.

Airless Spraying Gun Tips:

Typically, a variety of different spraying gun tips can be utilised in conjunction with a single system, as different tips offer slightly different options, e.g. how much paint is applied. Also spray gun tips are often compatible for use with a number of different systems.

Therefore, prior to undertaking a task it is imperative to ensure that the optimum spraying gun tip has been selected, in order to provide the best results. Once the optimum tip has been selected it is equally important to ensure that the tip is compatible with the system you are using. For the most part, which tip is best the task at hand will largely be determined by the type of coating which you as using. To demonstrate, small tips are best for use with lighter coats, enamels and stains, whereas larger tips are better suited for use with heavier coats, such as latex.

Over time, however, a tip will become worn producing an inferior effect and will require replacement. One way in which you can tell that a tip has become worn is through a change in the pattern of the spray.

Airless Spray Pumps and Motors:

The overwhelming majority of airless spraying systems currently available make use of a pump. This is sometimes known as either the fluid system or a lower. The pump aims to ensure that an equal flow of paint is emitted from the system, even under high pressure.

In order for the pump to function a motor is utilised, which is either electric, pneumatic (air which is compressed) or hydraulic (pressurised liquid). Of these motor types, hydraulic and pneumatic are most efficient. This is due to the fact that they utilise either an air compressor or a hydraulic pump, these two systems provide a more even pressure control. This improved level of pressure control is due to the fact that the piston in these systems moves at a uniform speed.
