Best spray equipment for waterborne.9/19
Like so many other companies, we are looking to move from solvent to waterborne and am looking for the best equipment to switch to. I understand it must be stainless and not create micro-bubbles.
I'm one who prefers either a diaphragm pump/gun or a pot/gun set-up for WB's.

Q1 - interesting you prefer diaphragm !!....Why over a AAA ?!
AND.....last but not as....relevant !.....why wagner and not ....say binks !?
I use a CAT Jaguar Gravity 1.4.
FWIW - We spray just water based stuff & reasonable quantity (several hundred gallons a year). We use diaphragm pumps and have had great results - takes some fine tuning like everything else but overall really nice. Started out with one from Homestead Finishing
used all day for the last five years with no issues. We just recently added the Wagner Colora Zip 52 as a second setup and it seems great also. Very similar pumps.
are any of you using the diaphragm pumps for WB primers and color coats or just clears? If so how is the finish quality? It seems like you would get a flatter finish with an AAA
I guess the first question I would ask is how much finishing do you do in a year? and how big of projects do you do at a time.
Are the Sata guns really that much better at atomizing WBs than other top brands of guns? Also would you run it with a pressure pot or a diaphragm pump? I probably spray the equivalent of one average size kitchen per month. When doing colors I probably spray 2 gallons at a time as an average. I use a pressure pot for clears and I have been using an airless for primer and colors.
