Binks (Glendale Heights, Ill.) has developed its 2100 spray gun, billed as a “more versatile, rugged and comfortable” version of the company’s conventional, full-size spray gun. It features the company’s new Maximum Delivery air nozzles, which reportedly provide better atomization at a lower air consumption rate, yet have the capability to deliver a wide range of sprayable material. Features include fluid passages (including threaded connections) of stainless steel, which extend unit service life and make it compatible with waterborne materials. Air adjustment at the spray gun includes a cheater valve to save operator time. The unit’s ergonomic design reduces operator fatigue with a curved handle and easier trigger pull.
