  • Patent number: 10016773
    Abstract: A fluid applicator configured to reduce user fatigue is presented. The applicator comprises an inlet and an outlet fluidically coupled by a fluid path. The applicator also comprises a trigger. The trigger is configured to, when actuated, move between a closed position and an open position. The open position comprises a fluid flowing from the inlet, to the outlet, along the fluid path. The applicator also comprises a trigger support configured to reduce a pressure required to maintain the trigger in an open position. The trigger support is configured to reduce the pressure required as the trigger actuates between the closed position and the open position.

  • Publication number: 20160303585
    Abstract: A spray tip configuration for a low pressure fluid sprayer is presented. The spray tip configuration comprises an inlet orifice configured to receive a fluid and to produce a turbulent flow at a known operating point. The spray tip configuration also comprises an outlet orifice configured to emit the fluid in a spray pattern at a turbulence intensity. The spray tip configuration also comprises a passageway fluidically coupling the inlet orifice to the outlet orifice, with a plurality of portions configured to produce the turbulence intensity at the outlet orifice. The passageway comprises a first portion comprising an expansion chamber configured to provide an expanding cross-section from a first portion first end to a first portion second end. The passageway also comprises a second portion comprising a first hydraulic diameter, wherein the second portion is fluidically coupled, on a second portion first end, to the first portion second end.
