Axis citation, Turbine?

Has anyone used the axis citation spray system? Whats the deal w/ the plastic gun? Since it's turbine, just the one gun can be used? Also is it adviseable to shoot primer and bccc w/ same gun? Is the axis louder than the compressor, any knowledge you can pass on would be appreciated, thanks again, Dana

H'mmm interesting..aircraft spruce seems to have the best price..I would want to do some checking around on this system though unless you wish to be the guinea pig..One thing is to check on available tip sizes as different materials can require different tips..

Just another question on the axis spray gun, supposely your regular spray gun thats used off of your standard air compressor won't work??, seems to me if you can adapt a fitting to accept each other, should be good to go? What am I not understanding, thanks, Dana

A turbine system is totally different technology from the conventional type system so the guns I do not believe will interchange..

I have a turbine system that I have used quite a bit finishing wood work. The single biggest thing that I found is the hot air really influences the product being sprayed. Slow reducers and/or retarders really help.

Never tried it with auto paint.

There are tricks to cool the air; add an extra length of hose,
place a section of hose in a pan of ice water, or place ice
near the air intake for the turbine.

My Fugi 4-stage sprays industrial and marine paints real well,
but so far I've only used waterbase and waterborne through it.

I like turbines for the fine finish and low bounce back. If everythings
set up correctly there's virtually no orange peel.
