  • Patent number: 11097286
    Abstract: A method of identifying a spray tip from a plurality of spray tips based on a selected fluid is presented. The method comprises the step of selecting the fluid. The fluid is characterized by a set of given physical parameters. The method also comprises the step of selecting an application pressure. The application pressure is sufficient to cause atomization of the fluid through the spray tip. The method also comprises the step of selecting the spray tip for the fluid applicator, based on characteristics of the fluid. The spray tip is selected based on an ability to process the fluid. The spray tip is selected such that the fluid has a viscosity on the order of 10 mPa·s in the shear rate range of 104-106 s?1 to ensure a turbulent flow downstream of a pre-orifice.

  • Publication number: 20200398293
    Abstract: A method for operating a hand-held spray device, wherein in a first step a target orientation of the spray nozzle relative to the operator control unit is defined, and wherein during operation a rotation of the spray device, brought about by manual movement of the spray, through a z swinging angle, about a z axis which is orthogonal with respect to the longitudinal axis and/or through a y swinging angle about a y axis which is orthogonal with respect to the longitudinal axis and orthogonal with respect to the z axis, by a single sensor and wherein the z swinging angle and/or the y swinging angle engage as interference variables in a closed-loop control circuit and make available closed-loop control variables in such a way that the spray nozzle retains its target orientation by means of closed-loop control of the swinging mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20160059252
    Abstract: A paint spray system including paint sprayer, a pressurized air generator, a pressurized air duct and an air control mechanism. The paint sprayer has a spray nozzle, the pressurized air generator has a blower, the pressurized air duct connects the blower to the spray nozzle, and the air control mechanism includes a throttle mechanism and is situated in the course of the pressurized air duct. The air control mechanism includes an outlet mechanism, wherein a decreasing of an aperture cross section of the throttle mechanism automatically leads to an increasing of an aperture cross section of the outlet mechanism and vice versa. The aperture cross sections existing in individual settings of the throttle mechanism and the outlet mechanism are attuned to each other such that a dynamic pressure generated at the blower remains constant in the individual aperture settings of the throttle mechanism and the outlet mechanism.

  • Patent number: 7703704
    Abstract: In a spray gun for spraying paint and similar media, there is provided a gun housing and a reservoir tank removably attached to the gun housing for holding the medium to be sprayed. The reservoir tank is configured as a commercially available storage container, for example in the form of a paint can, and is directly attached via an adapter to a projection connected to the gun housing. Thus, commercially available storage containers, differing considerably in their dimensions, can be directly fitted onto the gun housing in a short time and by a reliable method. Viscosity settings and transferring of media to be processed from one container to another are therefore not necessary, and the medium can be matched to the particular working implement and application.

  • Patent number: 7540434
    Abstract: In a spray gun (1) for spraying paint with a gun housing (2) provided with a handle (3) with a union nut (10) screwed onto it that holds an air cap (11) provided with offset outlet openings (14, 15) for compressed air, the union nut (10) is positively connected to the air cap (11) in a circumferential direction. This embodiment makes it possible for the spray jet to be set in a brief time and without difficulties without having to put up with getting dirty. It is merely necessary to turn the union nut (10) accordingly in order to control the air supply to the outlet openings (14, 15) of the air cap (11) and therefore to influence the formation of the spray jet.
