will i have enough air?

Postby mikhett » Sun Nov 01, 2009 5:38 pm

I have a 5hp 2 stage Husky air comp. It puts out 15.5 cfm@90 psi.I have to run a 100ft 3/8 hose to my garage out back to spray. I have never had a problem spraying 2k primers with this setup. Im now ready to spray basecoat with a Satanr95HVLP gun.I have a RTIMR1 mini regulator. The Sata sprays best@ 43 psi. Will i have enough cfms. Thanks Mike

Mike,
Do you have a water trap filter between the compressor and the spray gun or is it direct from the compressor through the 50' 3/8's hose?
Your air supply is marginal but sufficient.
Good Luck,

Did you mean Sharpe 880A? it has a regulator the F88 has the same filtering capacity but no regulator. The copper is smart and the 25 foot placement distance is at the minium for it to function properly.
You say no problems then I'd say your looking good, go for it.
