I wanted to learn more about reversible tips we sell. I grew up playing sports, so I’m a big fan of reversibles. Shorts, shirts, pinnies. I had a Nautica jacket that was reversible and you’re darn right that I still wear my reversible shorts. Come to think of it, how come all clothing isn’t reversible?
Anyway, because I’m such a reversible enthusiast I figured I’d like reversible tips, then, too. Boy do I ever! They save time and money, help prevent waste and make the painting process easier and better for the environment. Talk about a win-win!
Industrial reversible paint spray tips eliminate downtime by easily clearing a blockage away by spraying through the tip while it is in the reverse position. Even in the best-case scenario with perfect maintenance and using the proper paint filters, clogs will occur at tips from time to time.
All coatings contain solids that are abrasive — some more than others. Using a worn tip can cost you hundreds of dollars in wasted paint and labor; because when a spray tip wears the size of the tip orifice increases and the fan width decreases. This forces more passes to cover the surface, more labor, increased overspray, and a substantial waste of paint.
Each time that happens, it is costly to shut down the system. Reversible tips can be simply changed in seconds without having to remove the tip guard or adjusting any of your finishing equipment.
Always turn down the pressure as low as it can go, while still spraying a good spray pattern. This not only saves paint by reducing overspray, but it also reduces tip wear and prolongs your pump and high pressure paint spray hose, saving you money. And by using reversible tips, you can prolong the life of your spray tips!
