Is it possible to hook up a pressure pump to my pressure fed HVLP (Asturo eco ssp) as opposed to a pressure pot? I seem to get pressure fluctuation at the worst possible times.
From contributor C:
You're getting those with the pot or the pump? If the pump, check your filter, if there is one. If not, a low pressure fluid regulator will even it all out. If it's with a pot... you got me.
What I need to do to deal with some issues like what happens when I am spraying a tall vertical piece, is to hang the pressure-fed pot from the ceiling so that hopefully it is higher than the highest I am going to move the gun. If I don't hang the pressure pot high enough, then the higher the gun travels, the more pressure is needed to push the fluid through the hose to reach the gun. There is still an element of siphoning at play here and gravity helps or hurts depending on where the pot is relative to the height of the gun. Asturo makes a pressure feed system for your gun. It's meant to replace the pressure pot.
