mrastudent Forget the regulator restriction problem, I just read that one pound of CO2 in liquid form equates to 7 cubic feet. That means a 20 pound bottle would be gone in a couple of seconds.

I think your confusing CFM with PSI.
Volume vs. Pressure.
It would work with a convintional gun for a short while but those regulators will not pass enough CFM to satisify a full blown hvlp gun for very long IMO.
Unless you got a railroad car size tank.
I didn't confuse flow vs pressure, but I did forget about restriction at the regulator. That looks like it would probably be the biggest problem.

HVLP spraying with CO2 rather than air

Do modern paints require that they be sprayed with air, or would CO2 also work? I only ask because getting a cylinder of CO2 refilled is cheap, the output would be dry and cool, and there's definitely enough available CFM. Has anybody tried this?

CO2 would be a great alternative to a big compressor for people like me if it works.

Edit: how about Nitrogen?
