Citation 240 Respirator/Paint SprayerCITATION 240 DUAL RESPIRATOR & HVLP PAINT SPRAY SYSTEM

Axis Products, Inc. is the only company on planet Earth who offers a sprayer system like this! Its design was formulated because of the need for a painter to have a quality HVLP sprayer system along with a fresh-air breathing device that would be always available for you to be able to breathe safely and comfortably while spraying toxic materials. Deadly isocyanates, VOCs and other toxins present in today's paint demand you use a Fresh Air Respirator. No other system offers "built in" respirator protection with state of the art HVLP paint sprayer in the same cabinet. Components designed to last a lifetime of rigorous use. Easy to use. Just plug in, turn on the switch and go. This unit includes a mask, two 40' hoses, the LexAire spray gun with a one quart cup and whip hose.

WHY IS HVLP THE ONLY WAY TO GO?

80-85% of your paint stays on the surface. Very little overspray. Self contained system (no compressor, regulator, or moisture traps are required). Sprayer warms painting environment. Virtually eliminates moisture problems. Since its introduction to the market, the Citation System has met and exceeded its expectations. The secret to its success in the market is not just its unique design, but the quality of the component parts. During the development stage, every part of the Citation System was scrutinized to be the very best available before it was added to the system.  It is actually made up of two completely separate high-quality and proven products together into one integrated and portable system. Absolutely no compromises of any kind are made to assure the Citation System will perform well time after time.

HVLP SPRAY IS FAST BECOMING A LEGAL REQUIREMENT

The AXIS HVLP paint sprayer system is a culmination of the very best HVLP components that is put together in one system. AXIS Products Inc. does not manufacture any system components that go into the finished system. All the components, such as the turbine and the spray gun are made by companies who specialize in making just the turbines or just the spray guns. This allows AXIS to choose the best products available on the market and combine them into one very high quality spray system.

One of the main jobs at AXIS is to search out the manufacturers, who offer the very best components on the market, this, of course, is an ongoing process.

The Axis System Includes The Following Components:

  • Three Stage Turbine Pump Unit.
  • 40' Of 3/4' Tigerflex Spray Hose.
  • 4' Whip Hose And 1' Stub HD Hose.
  • A Pro Series Pressure Feed Spray gun.
  • Your Choice Of Needle/Nozzle Setups (One Included) Quick Disconnect And Air Control Valve.
  • How To Spray' Instruction Guide.
  • Instruction Manuals.

The AXIS paint sprayer is designed to last a lifetime for the average painter with nominal maintenance. Their warranty is one year for all parts and labor when the system is used according to the instructions provided.

No compressor is needed to operate the system, which eliminates the oil and moisture problem so prevalent with other kinds of sprayers. Another advantage is that the system is totally portable, lightweight and uses standard household electricity.

A natural by-product of any turbine system is the addition of heat to the airline. The advantage of the heat is that it eliminates moisture from the air that is mixed with the paint, however, the disadvantage of this heat is that it has a tendency to also flash away some of the thinner that is added to the paint when it is mixed. This loss of thinner can render the paint droplets too dry when they are applied causing an 'orange peel' effect. The solution is to add more thinner to the paint when it is mixed to compensate for its loss.

Another way to help to control the heat is to add a short piece of natural rubber 'stub hose' at the pump outlet. We call it an 'HD' or heat dissipation hose and is included in every AXIS spray system.

The way to get a great finish when spraying is to have a system that will break up the paint droplets as small as possible when it is atomized, the smaller the droplets, the better the finish.  Because this atomization (mixing the paint with the air) takes place in the nozzle of the spraygun just before it exits it stands to reason that the smaller the nozzle hole is, the smaller the droplets are broken down.

This is accomplished in the AXIS system by using a high output turbine and a spraygun that uses a pressure feed cup. Other systems that don't pressure feed the paint cups depend on a siphon action, which demands a much larger nozzle hole which can't offer the same high quality of the AXIS system.
