HVLP Guns

Q: Why do CAT 300, CPR, and SLP series nozzles atomize so much better than the competition?

A: Our Patented 12-Point Balanced Plenum

HVLP Guns
CAT Competition
The atomizing air hits our 12-point fluid nozzle behind the air cap and is diffused. It surrounds the fluid in a uniform shroud of atomizing air as it leaves the air cap. Without 12-point diffusion, high and low spikes or hot spots exist as the air leaves the air cap and surrounds the fluid.
This results in more uniform SMALL particles. This results in very small and very LARGE particles.
The end result: A flatter, more uniform finish is achieved. The end result: Orange peel finish.

Why does CAT have 100 Series, 200 Series, and 300 Series spray booth guns and nozzles?

A: C.A. Technologies manufactures three different series of nozzles that are used in three different gun models. The 100 Series, 200 Series, and 300 Series spray booth guns are for use in different applications. The 100 Series spray booth gun is intended for general purpose spraying and atomizes the widest range of coatings. The 200 Series is recommended for corrosion control applications. Our 300, CPR, and SLP series is our finest atomizing series and is perfect for wood, automotive, or any application where fine finish is needed.

All series of guns come in HVLP or Conventional and are offered in pressure, gravity feed, and automatic*. We also make a patented two-piece fluid nozzle with a removable tip (the part that wears) for inexpensive replacement. We make aircaps of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, anodized for durability.

*All C.A. Technologies spray booth guns are available in outfits, i.e. 1-quart cups, 2-quart cups, tanks, and double diaphragm pumps.
