I have tried different needle and noozle setups for this gun to spray
latex paint. From a .051 noozle and a #9 air cap, what seems to work
best is a .036 noozle and a #6 air cap. The turbine is a Capspray
4 stage turbine model number is 9100.
The paint has been thinned down.
Any thoughts on this matter.
thanks in advance.
I have a #10 gun also. I use the .061 tip for latex. works
like a charm. thin the paint with no more than 20%,
including Floetrol. sprays like a champ! Use whatever cap
you need for desired fan width. you shouldn't have any
trouble using a .061--just strain the paint, add the
Floetrol and water, and get on with it.
If you want more information, I suggest you give Compliant
Spray Systems in San Clemente, CA, a call. 1-800-696-0615 .
Jeff is the owner and his wife (IIRC her name is Phyliss,
but don't quote me) both can help with tip choices. My
hunch is they will suggest the .061. :) I would presume
that a .051 might work. Don't add any more water than
necessary, and don't forget the Floetrol for good flow-out.
