This hose is meant to be attached to the gun end of your
regular hose and not directly to turbine unit. Add this hose between
your regular hose and the quick disconnect at the gun. The light weight

Why should you use High-Volume Low-Pressure (HVLP) spray guns?
Paint spray contains harmful chemicals such as isocyanates, solvents, and paint additives. Painting with an HVLP spray gun significantly reduces overspray and as a result:
(1) Releases of toxic chemicals into the air go down, helping protect you, your co-workers, and your shop’s neighborhood.
(2) The amount of paint you need is reduced, saving $1,000's on paint costs every year.
Can you achieve a high quality finish using HVLP spray guns?
Yes! Painters at many auto shops use only HVLP spray guns when refinishing cars, without sacrificing the quality of the finish, even for top coats. Of course, you’ll need to make some technical adjustments to your pressure settings and spray cap when converting from a conventional spray gun to an HVLP spray gun. But once you do, you’ll find that HVLP spray guns are relatively easy to use, reduce overspray, and produce a high quality finish.
Advantages of turbine systems - constant supply of warm, dry air. No need for oil, water separators. Portable. Can be plugged into any 115 volt outlet.
Disadvantages - larger diameter air hose bothers some people. Smaller selection of equipment manufacturers.
In essence, an HVLP gun is still an air spray gun as it uses air as its
primary atomization force. Both HVLP and conventional air spray guns use
the same two components of compressed air, pressure and volume but in
different quantities. The pressure, which is normally noted in terms of
pounds per square inch or PSI and volume, which is noted in terms of
cubic feet per minute, are both necessary for either gun to work.
Originally HVLP guns where designed to use extremely high volumes of CFM
that were generated by turbines rather than compressors. These turbines
delivered, in some cases, hundreds of CFM but very little pressure. In
order to remain competitive with the turbine HVLP guns, the
manufacturers of the traditional air spray guns soon figured out how to
convert their guns to HVLP using compressed air rather than turbine air.
Today HVLP guns are as common as the old conventional guns.
