DeVilbiss (Glendale Heights, Ill.) has announced a new family of manual spray guns that use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to enhance the atomization process and provide a good finish. The product line includes the Compact Performance Series, which features advanced conventional air caps, the Trans-Tech ultralight suction feed spray gun and the HVLP (high-volume, low-pressure) gun, which reportedly is EPA-compliant yet produces optimal finish quality for all types of solvent and waterborne materials. Each of the spray guns is available in suction-, pressure- or gravity-feed models and feature brass air caps and stainless steel fluid tips. The guns use no baffles and weigh 14.6 oz/412g.
