EGA-503 SPRAY GUN
(SPRAY PISTOL)
Important: Before using this equipment,
read all safety precautions and instructions. Keep for future use.
DESCRIPTION
The EGA-503 is an external mix, touch-up
gun. The gun has a long needle taper making detail work easy. The forefinger trigger gives added control for delicate application. Can be used for touch-up, shading,
edging or any type of precision painting.
Use as either suction or pressure feed
application.
Note
Wetted surfaces are stainless steel
and aluminum. Please see Warning
on Page 2 regarding explosion
hazard.

OPERATION
Note
Prepare and strain material according to
the paint manufacturer's instructions. Attach container to fluid inlet and tighten.
Adjust incoming air pressure to gun to
achieve desired spray results.
Note
Worn parts can cause fluid leakage.
When replacing fluid tip or fluid
needle, replace both at the same
time. Lapped sets are available. Also
replace the fluid tip gasket and
needle packing at this time.
To minimize overspray, only use as
much pressure as required to atomize material.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
To clean fluid passages, remove excess
material at source, then flush with a suitable solvent.
To prevent damage to the fluid tip
or fluid needle, be sure to either 1)
push the trigger and hold while
tightening the fluid tip or 2) remove
the fluid needle adjusting screw to
relieve spring pressure.
To clean air cap and fluid tip, brush with a
stiff bristle brush. If necessary, use a broom
straw or toothpick. Never use a wire or
hard instrument. This may scratch or burr
holes causing a distorted spray pattern.
P1 = Maximum Air Pressure 100 PSI (7 bar)
P2 = Maximum Fluid Pressure 50 PSI (3.5 bar)

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
This manual contains information that is important for you to know and understand. This information relates to USER SAFETY and
PREVENTING EQUIPMENT PROBLEMS. To help you recognize this information, we use the following symbols. Please pay particular
attention to these sections.
NOTE
Important safety information – a hazard
that may cause serious injury or loss of
life.
Important information that tells how to prevent damage to equipment, or how to avoid
a situation that may cause minor injury.
Information that you should pay special
attention to.
The following hazards may occur during the normal use of this equipment.
Please read the following chart.
HAZARD
CAUSE
SAFEGUARDS
Fire
Solvents and coatings can be highly
flammable or combustible, especially
when sprayed.
1. Adequate exhaust must be provided to keep the
air free of accumulations of flammable vapors.
2. Smoking must never be allowed in the spray
area.
3. Fire extinguishing equipment must be present in
the spray area.
4. Static discharges must be prevented. Ground
(earth) all conductive objects in the spray area,
such as a cleaning solvent bucket, fire
extinguisher, etc.
5. When using solvents for cleaning:
• Those used for equipment flushing must have a
flash point equal to or higher than that of the
coating.
• Those used for general cleaning must have flash
points above 100°F (37.8°C).
Inhaling Toxic Substances
Certain materials may be harmful if
inhaled or if there is contact with the
skin.
1. Follow the requirements of the Material Safety
Data Sheet supplied by your coating
manufacturer.
2. Adequate exhaust must be provided to keep
the air free of accumulations of toxic materials.
3. Use a mask or respirator whenever there is a
chance of inhaling sprayed materials. The mask
must be compatible with the material being
sprayed and its concentration.
Explosion Hazard –
Incompatible Materials
Halogenated hydrocarbon solvents, for
example" methylene chloride and
1, 1, 1, - Trichloroethane, are not
chemically compatible with the
aluminum that might be used in many
system components. The chemical
reaction caused by these solvents
reacting with aluminum can become
This spray gun (spray pistol) has aluminum
passages and cannot be used with these solvents.
Aluminum is also widely used in other spray
application equipment – such as material pumps,
regulators, valves, etc. Check all other equipment
items before use. Read the label or data sheet for
the material you intend to spray. If in doubt as to
whether or not a coating or cleaning material is
compatible, contact your material supplier.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Continued)
HAZARD
CAUSE
SAFEGUARDS
General Safety
Improper operation or maintenance of
equipment.
Operators should be given adequate training in the
safe use and maintenance of the equipment (in
accordance with the requirements of NFPA-33,
Chapter 15 in U.S.). Users must comply with all local
and national codes of practice and insurance
company requirements governing ventilation, fire
precautions, operation, maintenance and
housekeeping (in the U.S., these are OSHA Sections
1910.94 and 1910.107 and NFPA-33).
Solvent Spray
During cleaning and flushing, solvents
can be forcefully expelled from fluid
and air passages. Some solvents can
cause eye injury.
Wear eye protection.
Misuse:
• All spray guns (spray pistols) project particles at high velocity and must never be aimed at any part of the body.
• Never exceed the recommended safe working pressures for any of the equipment used.
• The use of non-recommended or non-original accessories or spare parts may create hazardous conditions.
• Before dismantling the equipment for cleaning or maintenance, all pressures, air and fluid, must be isolated and released.
The disposal of waste materials must be carried out in an approved manner. Burning may generate toxic fumes. The removal or waste
solvents and coating materials should be carried out by an authorized local waste disposal service.
