DEFINING TrueHVLP TURBOSPRAY TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMOTIVE, MARINE AND AVIATION PAINTING

INTRODUCTION

APOLLO SPRAYERS HVLP Turbospray is one of many spray finishing technologies available. There is no single spray finishing technology that meets every need and application successfully. Often, multiple spray finishing tools may be necessary. For some applications APOLLO SPRAYERS HVLP Turbospray can be the finisher’s primary spray finishing tool and for other applications it is a great secondary or companion tool that expands finishing opportunities for the professional or industrial spray finishing environment. APOLLO SPRAYERS HVLP Turbospray will benefit finishers in professional automotive, marine and aviation work places as well as for semi pros and part time finishers in less spacious shops.  

TrueHVLP TURBOSPRAY TECHNOLOGY

TrueHVLP Turbospray is an air atomizing technology that is an alternative to compressed air spraying.

Important to note: An HVLP Turbospray system IS NOT an air compressor. It is an alternative atomizing air supply source.

APOLLO TrueHVLP TURBOSPRAY PROVIDES YOU WITH:

  • An Independent complete paint spray system. 110v or 230v No compressor needed.
  • Dramatically reduced overspray (80-90% Transfer Efficiency) All paints and primers
  • Significant savings with less coating consumption (25% – 50% or better)
  • Superb control (Less masking)
  • Easy mobility of equipment (if necessary)
  • Easy transition from conventional spray
  • East cleanup and maintenance

All while producing a Class A fine finish.

Apollo Sprayers MAXI-MISER TrueHVLP Turbospray Technology excel in Automotive, Marine and Aviation painting with exclusive and unique turbospray HVLP technology. (patents pending).

HOW IT WORKS

A TrueHVLP Turbospray paint spray system includes three components:

  • Turbospray unit (air source) (110v or 230v).
  • Air hose with quick connect couplers
  • HVLP Turbospray gun

APOLLO SPRAYERS HVLP Turbospray units house industrial tangential bypass motors that produce 60+cfm at 10psi or less. The rotational friction of the motor creates consistent clean dry air. When turbospray generated air is directed through a custom designed HVLP spray gun that incorporates larger air passage ways including larger holes in the air cap, you achieve ultra-efficient low pressure atomization, achieving less bounceback from the work surface (substrate), resulting in dramatically less overspray, substantial material savings and a cleaner work environment and most important a fine atomized smooth finish.

Unlike most turbospray HVLP systems that only deliver one fixed air atomizing pressure, APOLLO MAXI-MISER Automotive, Marine and Aviation HVLP paint spray systems provide multiple pressure settings as well as minimizing air relief to maximize the highest pressures each individual motor can produce while ensuring high performance and longevity.

APOLLO SPRAYERS M-1000 provides two pressure settings, low and high, Low for primer and base, high for clear. Additional features built into this system make it unique to older technology or what may appear to be similar type systems at lower cost.

APOLLO SPRAYERS M2000 and M3000 HVLP Turbospray Systems offers a visible and variable pressure control along with additional precision features not available elsewhere. (patents pending)

Understanding realistically available or maximum air pressure is most important in understanding how to relate various coatings and finishes to the equipment. The beauty of the MAXI-MISER 2000 AND 3000 Turbospray Systems is the ability to dial in the most efficient pressure for a particular coating based on viscosity or difficulty to atomize a finish. This results in the highest product efficiency, lowest amount of overspray, highest cost savings, cleanest work environment and the best protection of our environment.

APOLLO has carefully documented performance, application speed, mil-build, paint savings, nozzle/needle and air cap selection, color accuracy, blending features and finish results.

High production capability is available using a pressure pot as a source for fluid delivery as an option to a standard cup installed on a spray gun where larger paint volume is necessary.

CONCLUSION

Apollo Sprayers International Inc. recognizes that the appearance of your project is judged on how it looks and feels. Our goal is to provide equipment and technology that meets the needs of today’s environmental concerns while providing easy access and performance to achieve the desired perfect finish.

Apollo Sprayers are manufactured in the USA and celebrating 50 years (2016) innovating, manufacturing and selling HVLP technology.
