There are many different types of paint sprayers, including an HVLP spray gun. Choosing one will depend on your painting needs and what you want to get out of it. Here are some things to consider before buying one: what is the purpose of the sprayer? What types of surfaces do you need to paint with it? What is the cost?
SAMES KREMLIN has a wide range of air pressure sprayers available to fit any painting job you may have. They are going to focus on differences in the HVLP and LVLP spray guns. While they both may use the same types of chemicals and look very similar, they are two different tools, intended for different uses.
Both HVLP sprayers and LVLP sprayers use compressed air to atomize the contents. The difference is in how the spray is atomized, and how the molecules are grouped together to create the flow with the spray gun. Because the particles are compressed and then released, there is more room for the spray to create more trails, which means more coverage at the same volume. HVLP sprayers use a two-stage system, where the spray pressure is adjusted while the nozzle opens, creating a finer stream of spray. The slower the opening of the nozzle, the greater the spray volume is produced.
The next difference is in the spraying process itself. HVLP usually has an air cap, and an actuator. With the HVLP system, the actuator is located under the cap, and the air pressure activates the actuator and creates the spray. For example, if you have a blow up doll or other toy that needs to be sprayed, it’s done with the use of the sprayer, but if it’s a larger object, such as a painting, it’s done with the use of the gun, which is held in the hand. Either way, once the spray is created, it must be allowed to dry. It does that with a pressurized stream of air, and the sprayer allows the stream of air to escape so that it can exit the nozzle and evaporate.
Because of the different mechanisms that are used to spray materials, both HVLP and LVLP systems are superior to their counterparts. In fact, most industries that use either a HVLP spray gun or a LVLP spray gun, will tell you that once the job is complete, there is less overspray. When using the HVLP system, less material is wasted during the mixing and preparation process, because less material comes out of the nozzle and less goes into the compressor. Less Overspersion means less cleanup time and easier clean up. And in manufacturing, this means more productivity, which is always a good thing. No one likes to waste time cleaning up and having to make more material because the job was done too quickly.
Another advantage is that HVLP sprayers are designed with greater transfer efficiency. The flow of the spray is more even, and the flow rate is higher, which means that the gun finishes the job more quickly. This is especially important when spraying metal – the speed at which the gun travels, and the angle at which it sprays, is critical to achieving an even, professional finish on whatever it is you’re spraying. Using an inferior sprayer simply means that the finish won’t be as professional-looking or as consistent.
Lastly, HVLP spray guns have a more ergonomic design than their LVLPs counterparts. Because there is no need to load and unload the gun during the job, you will be able to spend more time working on other aspects of your painting project instead of setting up the hose and spending some time cleaning it. You will also enjoy the ergonomic advantages of the barrel twist, swivel, and low-profile hose design. With an HVLP gun, you will be able to complete the task of painting in much the same way that you would with an airbrush gun.
