This is our top of the range HVLP Paint Sprayer. If you are looking for a professional paint spray (spray gun) system capable of professional finish, look no further. NO compressor required. The TMR140 highly portable electric Turbine power unit delivers a huge quantity of air at only 5 or 6 psi. (Compressor delivers small volume of air at huge pressure)
The Rigo HLVP (high volume low pressure) system, available in a few price levels, is suitable for spraying all kinds of furniture, cabinets, woodwork, on or off site, in fact anything that needs to be painted with a fine finish.
HVLP means low pressure spraying which means no massive clouds of overspray, uses about half the paint a compressor gun uses, no moisture in the warm air, quicker drying, precision finish.
Unlike the little electric spray guns which have own inbuilt motor, this unit has tons of steady, consistent power to ensure continuous air supply with minimum thinning etc.
Take a look at the video above and that will give you an indication of how little overspray this produces and see the finish.
This machine delivers a finish second to none. The Rigo replaces the turbinaire hvlp unit we have stocked in the past.
Perfect for car body work, signs, wood finishing, steel and so on.
All units come with Gun and hose ready to spray. (230 volt)
What Is HVLP?
HVLP means high volume low pressure... to atomise paint properly, you need either the traditional method, compressor = little air flow but at high pressure / up to 50 p.s.i. or the modern system HVLP which delivers about 10 times more air than a compressor but at low pressure = up to 6 p.s.i High pressure (conventional cpmpressor) is what makes overspray and waste of paint. HVLP delivers up to 90% of paint to the surface being painted with the remainder being minimal overspray. HVLP on average uses 50% of the paint compared with compressor spraying.
What is the difference between this unit and the more expensive TMR140?
Basically, the difference is the size of the motor. The TMR140 is a more powerful motor which means it acheives more output with less effort (running speed) and if you have a lot of work to do, the stronger unit will last longer. Both models have the variable speed control for maximum air flow adjustment.
Is it easy to use?
Yes, but we do recommend that you practice on some scrap material to get a feel for how it works. We have vast experience using HVLP on almost every imaginable type of application and we are here to give you the top tips to get you spraying like a pro in minimum time.
Whats the difference between HVLP sprayers and Airless?
No comparison whatsoever. Airless sprayers work in a similar way to high pressure washers... they take paint into the pump either by syphon or gravity fed hopper and it is forced out at the gun at up to 3000 p.s.i. high pressure. Airless are generally used for big work - fast. Example... Painting contractors use them a lot for applying paint to ceilings, walls, interior and exterior. Some painters use them also for woodwork with fine tips fitted to reduce paint output. Other application for Airless are farm sheds and big machinery.
On the other hand, HVLP sprayers are designed for smaller 'fine finish work'. HVLP, while capable of spraying large areas also, would be much slower and you would need regular refills of the cupgun which is not practical. You get fantastic control with the HVLP. You can adjust the tip to even spray narrow lines.
Can I expect my HVLP sprayer to last long?
Looked after properly, you can expect it to last twenty + years. We sold HVLP initially back in 1993 and many of those are still running today. The unit is so simple to maintain, keep the two intake air filters clean and replaced regularly. That's about it. Obviously you wash the spray gun properly after use.
(This hvlp sprayer replaces the turbinare 1537 hvlp which we have distributed in the past.)
