AAA equipment choice8/30/20
We are considering purchasing an AAA system for our finishing needs. We shoot a considerable amount of 2K products and would like some feedback on which system is best for 2K products. Currently using a pressure pot system with Binks and Devilbiss guns. We are not bound to any one product, therefore, if anyone has any comments on which 2k is better with their system we would be open to those comments also. Thanks for your help.
what product are you using (who's 2k) and what is the product you are spraying it on (cabs, etc)?
I do not mean this to sound arrogant, but it would seem to me that if a system could shoot one brand of 2k then it could shoot most all brands. I have guns now that will all brands of Lacquer and CV as well as 2K products. We spay flat full sheets, round products (as in turned) wooden threads, molding, furniture etc. Years back when I was doing paint and body work all our guns would shoot on all brands of cars and trucks as well as anything else we were shooting. Just looking to move to air assisted airless because we have heard that they are better with 2k products as well as water born products.
if your planning on going with a dosing rig your cheapest option is going to be CAT... but the graco units and the kremlin units are excellent choices.... in my experience kremlin is the overall best quality as far as atomization and longevity.... if your hot potting and pulling your coating before it's potlife then buy what your budget allows.... they are all decent machines.... some are just more ergonomic... some wear out faster.. etc etc..
thomas - sorry for my initial reply. i was just trying to help.
pretty much what shane said. and please feel free to search the archives on this site. this question seems to come up a few times every year. the equipment pretty much doesn't change so those older posts will still be relevant.
i've used kremlin, cat, and graco, and they're all pretty much the same. currently, i'm spraying with an older kremklin 20:1 pump, outfitted with a newer excite gun. it works as it should so not much to really tell.
Kremlin if your serious :)
I use this style of spray system in a shop setting.
It is extremely responsive and consistent.
Very easy to clean and you can leave in in lacquer for years.
So from a lazy mans standpoint this is the ticket.
There are videos on youtube of people using them and reviewing.
