Cleaning and Maintenance of Paint Spray Guns

Methods of professional spray gun cleaning

Waterborne PaintsIt goes without saying that you can apply any waterborne paint with a SATA paint spray gun. There is only one limitation in this respect: Please do not use the same spray guns for the application of solvent-based as well as waterborne paints. We recommend working with two completely separate sets of spray guns, in line with the two separate paint systems.The CCS (Color Code System) which comes with each high-performance spray gun offers a clever solution to assist you in clearly marking your different spray guns.

Manual cleaning of paint spray guns

Disassembly of nozzle set

  1. First remove paint needle.
  2. Followed by the cap.
  3. And finally, unscrew fluid tip with the ring spanner integrated in the universal wrench.

Cleaning and drying

When cleaning the spray gun manually, please ensure not to use brushes made of metal wires which could possibly damage the spray gun. Furthermore, please make sure that no cleaning fluid ends up in the air passages of the spray gun body - we recommend leaving the spray gun connected to the air line with the air flow rate reduced to the minimum!

Cleaning of the nozzle set

When cleaning the nozzle components, please make sure that metal parts of brushes do not damage the nozzle set. Ideally, please use specially designed SATA cleaning brushes and SATA nozzle cleaning needles to ensure optimum cleaning and maintenance of the nozzle set.

Assembly and Maintenance 



When installing the nozzle set, please observe that the fluid tip has been hand-tightened with the enclosed ring spanner of the universal tool to ensure safe seal seat.

Each SATA paint spray gun and each replacement nozzle set is hand-adjusted and spray-tested. With a vertical spray fan, the air cap has to be positioned in a way that the laser-etched air cap marking can be read from the front. The marking on the outside of the air cap horn placed in the uppermost position instead indicates the correct orientation when spraying with a horizontal spray fan.

Over the years, the SiliconePlastics based on a silicon-oxygen structure.Silicone and silicon-based substances have various fields of application in technology and chemistry. Besides industrial use, the sector of construction coatings appreciates aquaeous dispersions of silicone resins (silicone emulsions)for the application of water repellent finishing on walls.Silicone-based substances change the surface tension. Even very small silicone particles can cause considerable coating flaws (silicone craters). Therefore, silicone-based substances (e.g. gloves, oil etc.) must never be used in coating areas.X»-free SATA high performance spray gun grease which is compatible with paint has proven to be the perfect maintenance agent when thinly applied on all moving components as well as on all threads. This ensures free movement and perfect function of the components even after many years of use. Illustration see above - Art. No. 48173 (1 tube/unit) / 10009 (6 tubes/units)
