THE HVLP ADVANTAGE The next step up in size of sprayers will be an HVLP sprayer. This type of High Volume/Low Pressure sprayer creates a very fine finish, perfect for furniture, doors and other mid-size jobs. You can pick up an HVLP gun for as little as $30 and power it with a large-tank compressor that has an output regulator. The HVLP sprayers operate in the 40-70 PSI output range, but ideal results are usually achieved in the 35-40 PSI range. However, from my experience these inexpensive compressor- driven guns can cause frustration, because the air output ebbs and flows as the compressor tank runs low and the pump has to re-cycle to generate more air. The occa- sionally erratic air output leads to uneven spray performance, which can detract from the charm of the HVLP’s ability to deliver a smooth, even, consistent coat of paint. For more consistent performance, you’ll likely have better results with an HVLP sprayer that has an integrated air turbine. This design keeps the airflow consistent and
For $30 or less, you can pick up a baseline HVLP sprayer to be powered by a compressor with a large tank.
When using any paint spray tool, it’s a good idea to wrap all thread- ed connections with Thread Seal Tape to create watertight seal that prevents leaks.
