Re: what compressor for a hvlp gun

Find the highest possible CFM rating that your HVLP paint gun will be running on (this can normally be found in the owner's manual as well). Multiply the highest CFM rating by 50 percent. Add this number to the total CFM required. The number you come up with will be the highest rating of air compressor you should be looking for, as CFM ratings within 15 percent of this number will allow you to run your tools without over-taxing the compressor.

Re: what compressor for a hvlp gun

simple

round it up to 12 the gun

18cfm

between 16 and 20 ish

seems high to me
9.5 is obviously the bear minimum you want to be able to charge the tank quickly
with dodgy use

just to rub it in dave

at work we have one of these
http://www.kmtservices.co.uk/for_sale/compressor.html

tank size is massive as well

are you sure you need a compressor and not an air pump?
our spray gun at work as posted http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...f/DSC03005.jpg

not found some what does 20 psi tho

Re: what compressor for a hvlp gun

mate has said
http://productsearch.machinedesign.c...ir_Compressors


"Free air delivery is the actual air produced by the compressor pump at the rated pressure. Maximum free air delivery (F.A.D.) is usually rated at a pressure somewhat less than the maximum pressure available. Units are volume per unit time."

Which is pretty much what I would have said..

It is what you actually get pumped out....

So

Air Delivery Check
Pressure Check (assuming it is adjustable)

Have to check you have the right attachments though and that it will actually fit on... but quarter inch is pretty standard for air guns... depends whats on the hose.

9 Amps is a fair old current... but if you have the right 'leccy stuff setup is no real problem for a garage/workshop type affair ... my dad has a decent compressor in the garage...

9.2 cubic feet is about 260 litres though.. so that air tank looks like it might be 'exhausted' on full whack in a fifth of a minute...

Might be something enquiring about..
