The Worst Thing To Do To The Spray Gun You Love
Or Being Green Pays
Air Spray Tech Consulting
What is it? At the end of the shift you take your spray gun and put it into a bucket of solvent for cleaning or take it apart for cleaning.
This is not a good idea. It in fact is a bad idea. Do not do it. Dirty solvent with find it's way into internal air passages and soil or block those passages. At the most, remove the air cap for cleaning with clean solvent. Replace when cleaning is complete. Some painters spray with gloves on. Here is an idea, put a glove on the gun, instead of your hand. Gun gloves are available, inquire within. The gun remains clean only the air cap is exposed. This makes clean up a snap. The cost of the glove is offset by the savings in labor to clean the gun and the expense of the cleaning solvent. This is a 'green solution' and it pays.
