CORMACK Anest Iwata's range of high transfer efficiency spray guns has been expanded with the addition of the AZ10 HTE. The new spray gun is part of the Air Gunsa stable and is licensed by Anest Iwata to use its High TEC (transfer efficiency control) technology for EPA compliant spray guns.
The spray gun was designed by the same Japanese team that devised the original Anest Iwata High TEC spray guns.
The AZ10 HTE is capable of transfer efficiencies of up to 93.8%, which translates to sizable savings in paint usage. Testing of the gun was conducted by the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre in the UK. A copy of the official certificate of compliance is supplied with each spray gun.
The new spray gun is 20 per cent lighter than earlier Air Gunsa HTE units. The reduced weight allows more manoevrability and reduces operator fatigue.
A suction or pressure feed spray gun, the AZ10 HTE is available in different configuations, to allow the application of different coatings. The spray gun features a new inlet air valve, as standard.
The fluid needle and fluid nozzle are made of 303 stainless steel, making the spray gun ideal for use with water borne coatings. The fluid needle packing is made of PTFE (Teflon). As well, the body is coated in PTFE, for easy cleaning.
Using only 200 litres (7 cfm) of air at 2 bar (29 psi) pressure, the AZ10 HTE uses less air than comparable conventional spray guns.
