supplied air paint system looking into. tips needed

Hi guys I like to buy a supplied are system

looks Like i will go with the hobbyair or proair system. but cant decide which one

first off which do I need hobby-air ($429) or pro-air ($699)??





and lastly I do want to go with a full face. but not sure which version to get.
the white one will save me money and I like the hose connect being at the back side versions the front of the proair but I wonder if it will get damaged easy

I have been using a remote air mask since the mid eighties. I had learned that oil type air compressors produce carbon monoxide, so I finally switched to oil-free compressors. I just set up a belt, where I teed off of the air line to the gun. I have a valve to adjust air flow through the mask, an inline charcoal filter, and then it it just blows through the mask, and out the bottom valve.

If you are worried, you might want to see if there are any problems with air from diaphram-type compressors... but I have used this compressor supplied setup for about 20 years.

I used a few pieces such as the belt and over-the-shoulder hose, from an old factory made mask, and total cost to convert to main compressor air was less than $50.

I use a SATA mask,(full face with hood) with a Develbiss filtration system. tied to a regular air compressor.
Best money I've spent.
All I get is fresh clean cool dry air.

A Hobby Aire system works just fine and at a reasonable cost. You need the full face mask and hood or just the supplied air hood sold by most Hobby-Aire suppliers as iso's will enter your body through the eyes (a usual place for even the common cold), skin as well as breathing them. You also need a Tyvek 'bunny' suit, nitrile gloves, and booties. Whatever system you use, it needs to pick up the supplied air in a separate clean room that has no interface with the painting area - therefore the supplied hose is too short. There is an inexpensive alternative to that and that's an RV drinking water hose or two plus it is way lighter to drag around. As far as teeing off your air compressor - that will probably work as well as long as it can be pressure and volume controlled with needle valves ($$$), filtered and is sited out of the same room and any possibility of picking up those nasty iso's.

Mine has a seperate regulator for the mask, it has a 4stage filtration system. I think it cost me about $1800 for the whole setup.

I did order the hobby air version 2. with extra hose and hd pump..

it will be mounted in a different clean room. and as a bonus on window frame just for jokes to get some extra clean air

also went with the direct feed white hood. I always where gloves but never a lint fee paint suit.

currently researching which paint suit to get. I like the sata version since it cool to match my new satajet 4000 I just got. but I see other brands have nice ones too. but hard to tell over the internet which is strong quality

this is true but I would rather have clean air come to me from a outside clean source then filtered air from a compressor.

at the end of the day the real reason why the sata or any system that ties into a compressors air line is due to the handy feature of having one air line to work with and not a spare.
