Default Re: Spray Equipment: Air powered conventional/HVLP vs. Turbine HVLP vs. Airless vs. A

Air Assist Airless will give you a bit more production but slightly less finish quality. You will end up using a lot more coating to because you usually have 25 feet of lines to clear out. You typically will not want to leave the coating in the air assist airless because its not a sealed system. Its usually best only from a true production standpoint. Turbines major benefit is portability. Some of their challenges can be that cheaper ones will heat the coating at the air cap which can create challenges with certain coatings. If you want heres a good overview article covering air assist airless, HVLP, and turbine units!.
