  • 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: 20190040985
    Abstract: A connection device (1) for at least one plug-in portion (3) comprising an annular external groove (2) comprises a housing (7), into which at least one plug-in portion (3) can be plugged, and also at least in each case one integral locking element (9) and a securing device (15). A locking element (9) comprises a securing portion (11) and a locking portion (10) which can be preassembled in the housing (7). In the preassembled state, the locking portion (10), by elastic deflection, permits a plug-in portion (3) to be plugged into the housing (7) and brings about the locking of said plug-in portion in the housing (7). By means of the securing device (15), the securing portion (11) can be secured on an outer side of the housing opening (13) against displacement in a circumferential direction (14). A securing device (15) is designed as a ring which engages around the housing (7) and is movable on said housing (7) at least axially counter to a resistance and has an axial recess (16) in a plugging-in direction (8).

  • 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.
