Pressure pot troubles

I have decided to upgrade to a pressure pot system for spraying glue. I am having trouble with the glue drying in the fluid hose, making it useless. Not sure what I am doing wrong, I closed the petcock when finished and closed the fan on the gun. The hoses are cheapo's , but I have a new quality set on the way. I also have a new CA technologies panther 100g gun on the way. I don't want to clog the new stuff up. I am spraying dap hhr top and trim, and never had trouble with it drying in the old siphon gun. Any help is appreciated, Jeremy

I have the Binks setup. I keep pressure on the pot all the time and don't make any changes to anything between uses. It is always at the ready. I keep the pot over 1/2 full. Never had a problem with glue drying up.

The glue is drying in the fluid hose only, the pot is fine. I have killed 2 cheap fluid hoses. It is driving me crazy !!! It is dry in the hose over night. I haven't been keeping air pressure on the tank, but I do close it.

I use the Binks fluid hose. Perfect Fit has very good prices on it. If the glue is drying in the hose that means the solvents are somehow evaporating. I suspect this could be an issue with the quality of equipment..

Thank you slodat, I am thinking the same thing, so I do have a quality fluid hose on the way, it's advertised for adhesives...and cost 65$. A reasonable price if I don't ruin it the first night!!!

Slodat is right, cheap equipment won't work when you're using a pressure pot. Hang the spray nozzle up high when you're done spraying and let gravity return the glue to the pot. It also helps to be using the equipment regularly. I just think it's way too clumsy to wrestle with those two hoses. I tried it and went back to a conventional spray gun.

Dan is right about the two hoses. My hoses are tied together, in a very neat fashion, so they function as one hose. About to put a TIG torch cover over them to make it even better. Spraying upside down and not having to refill often are quite nice. It also never falls over.

Did you see the Binks attachment for the spray nozzle that allows you to get into tight places easily? It's basically just a plastic tube with a way to attach it to the spray nozzle. Looks interesting, and can't cost much. Look at page 6 in this pamphlet: http://www.binks.com/Portals/0/repos...sivesguide.pdf
