Looking to buy a new cup gun for my pps system to spray aniline dyes2/12
Im looking to buy a new cup gun and i currently have a mach 1 and a 2001 gun. I was told debvilvious (however u spell it) is a fantastic gun. Im looking at theTrophy vs the Compact. What can you guys tell me about them and which is better/worse and why? I use the pps system
The 3M gun works fine for me but the Compac Devilibiss is a nice gun
I have been using the compact DeVilbiss gun, with the DeKups system (similar to your PPS from 3M) to spray stain, toners, etc and general touch ups.
It works great - unless you have very large hands. The gun body is quite a bit smaller than a regular size gun but fits my average hands fine. I am using the 9 ounce cups and it is a great little gun.
It has enough fine adjustment to spray NGR dyes with precision and NO spatter.
The Binks and Devilbiss guns seem comparable to me - I like both but have more Binks. Personally I like to stick with the same brand as much as possible so the parts are interchangeable. For spraying dye I often like to use a 2 quart pressure pot so I don't run out in the middle of the spray.
The finisher at my day job work uses the compact, but he complains about anything and everything. No matter what or how good something is, he will find something to say he doesn't like it.
Thats neither here nor there and not the point of my question.
I had to talk to a tech at Kremlin in Michigan about something relating to my brand new EOS 15-1 that i use for my personal side business andhe recommeded a Kremlin syphon gun for the PPS. My struggle, challange is just something I will need to decide and live with my decision about which gun to buy for my PPS system to spray mohawk alcohol dyes. I have a binks 2001 and mach 1 guns and the tech from binks says i have the right tip and fluid nosel, but the mach 1 HvLP just doesnt spray as well as the 2001 gun. Maybe im wrong inassuming the HVLP would spraty thedyes better than the 2001
few spray guns will atomize material as well as a Binks 2001...the downside of the 2001 is that, due to it's use of higher nozzle pressure, it's not as efficient as HVLP or RP guns (or in other words...more material is lost to over-spray and less on what you're spraying). If you don't mind the waste it will give you great results.
