READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE OPERATING THIS DEVILBISS PRODUCT Page 2 SB-2-777-F 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. CA PROP The following hazards may occur during the normal use of this equipment. Please read the following chart before using this equipment. 65 PROP 65 WARNING WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. HAZARD CAUSE SAFEGUARDS Fire Solvent and coatings can be highly flammable or combustible especially when sprayed. Adequate exhaust must be provided to keep air free of accumulations of flammable vapors. Smoking must never be allowed in the spray area. Fire extinguishing equipment must be present in the spray area. Solvent Spray During use and while cleaning and flushing, solvents can be forcefully expelled from fluid and air passages. Some solvents can cause eye injury. Wear eye protection. Inhaling Toxic Substances Certain materials may be harmful if inhaled, or if there is contact with the skin. Follow the requirements of the Material Safety Data Sheet supplied by your coating material manufacturer. Adequate exhaust must be provided to keep the air free of accumulations of toxic materials. 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. Equipment must be as prescribed by an industrial hygienist or safety expert, and be NIOSH approved. 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 violent and lead to an equipment explosion. Guns with stainless steel internal passageways may be used with these solvents. However, aluminum is widely used in other spray application equipment - such as material pumps, regulators, valves, and this gun and cup. Check all equipment items before use and make sure they can also be used safely with these solvents. 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. 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). Users must comply with all local and national codes of practice and insurance company requirements governing ventilation, fire precautions, operation, maintenance, and housekeeping. These are OSHA Sections 1910.94 and 1910.107 and NFPA-33. Cumulative Trauma Disorders ("CTD's") Use of hand tools may cause cumulative trauma disorders ("CTD's"). Pain, tingling, or numbness in the shoulder, forearm, wrist, hands, or fingers, especially during the night, may be early symptoms of a CTD. Do not ignore them. Should you experience any such symptoms, see a physician immediately. Other early symptoms may include vague discomfort in the hand, loss of manual dexterity, and nonspecific pain in the arm. Ignoring early symptoms and continued repetitive use of the arm, wrist, and hand can lead to serious disability. Risk is reduced by avoiding or lessening factors 1-7. CTD's, or musculoskeletal disorders, involve damage to the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck, and back. Carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis (such as tennis elbow or rotator cuff syndrome) are examples of CTD's. CTD's, when using hand tools, tend to affect the upper extremities. Factors which may increase the risk of developing a CTD include: 1. High frequency of the activity. 2. Excessive force, such as gripping, pinching, or pressing with the hands and fingers. 3. Extreme or awkward finger, wrist, or arm positions. 4. Excessive duration of the activity. 5. Tool vibration. 6. Repeated pressure on a body part. 7. Working in cold temperatures. CTD's can also be caused by such activities as sewing, golf, tennis, and bowling, to name a few. SB-2-777-F Page 3 FLG4 SIPHON / PRESSURE FEED SPRAY GUNS AND DeKUPS® DISPOSABLE CUP SYSTEM IMPORTANT: Before using this equipment, read all safety precautions on page 2 and instructions. Keep for future use. Halogenated hydrocarbon solvents - for example; 1, 1, 1- trichloroethane and methylene chloride - can chemically react with the aluminum in this gun and cause an explosion hazard. Read the label or data sheet for the material you intend to spray. Do not use spray materials containing these solvents with this spray gun. IMPORTANT: This gun may be used with most common coating and finishing materials. It is designed for use with mildly corrosive and non-abrasive materials. If used with other high corrosive or abrasive materials, it must be expected that frequent and thorough cleaning will be required and the necessity for replacement of parts will be increased. OPERATION Strain material thru 60 or 90 mesh screen. Model FLG-CNS-115: The No. 1 (conventional) air cap requires an air supply at the gun inlet of approximately 45 psi, measured with the trigger pulled and can be operated from a 3 H.P. compressor. HVLP Models FLG-HVS-322 and FLG-HVP-315: The No. 3 (HVLP) air cap requires an air supply at the gun inlet of 23 psi max., measured with the trigger pulled. This gun was manufactured to provide maximum transfer efficiency by limiting air cap pressure to 10 psi (complies with rules issued by SCAQMD and other air quality authorities). This gun will produce approximately 10 psi cap pressure at 23 psi inlet pressure, as measured at the gun inlet. An air cap test kit (see ACCESSORIES) should be used to ensure 10 psi cap pressure is not exceeded. Adjust fluid pressure to deliver the desired paint volume. Adjust air pressure and fluid flow to provide a uniform dispersion of atomized paint throughout the pattern. Keep air pressure as low as possible to minimize bounce - back and overspray. Excessive air pressure will result in split patterns. Low air pressure will result in heavy centered patterns and poor atomization. Excessive fluid flow will result in heavy center spray patterns. Inadequate fluid flows may cause the pattern to split. See "TROUBLESHOOTING" section. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE To clean air cap and fluid tip, brush exterior with a stiff bristle brush. If necessary to clean cap holes, use a broom straw or toothpick if possible. If a wire or hard instrument is used, extreme care must be used to prevent scratching or burring of the holes which will cause a distorted spray pattern. To clean fluid passages, remove excess material at source, then flush with a suitable solvent. Wipe gun exterior with a solvent dampened cloth. Never completely immerse in solvent as this is detrimental to the lubricants and packings. Note When replacing the fluid tip or fluid needle, replace both at the same time. Using worn parts can cause fluid leakage. To prevent damage to the fluid tip (2) or fluid needle (7), be sure to either: • Pull the trigger and hold while tightening or loosening the fluid tip, or • Remove fluid needle adjusting knob (6) to relieve spring pressure against needle collar. Spray Gun Lubrication Daily, apply a drop of SSL-10 spray gun lube at trigger bearing stud and the stem of the air valve. The shank of the fluid needle where it enters the packing nut should also be oiled. The fluid needle packing (7) should be kept soft and pliable by periodic lubrication. Make sure the baffle (4) and retaining ring (1) threads are clean and free of foreign matter. Before assembling retaining ring to baffle, clean the threads thoroughly, then add two drops of SSL-10 spray gun lube to threads. The fluid needle spring (6) and air valve spring (8) should be coated with a very light grease, making sure that any excess grease will not clog the air passages. For best results, lubricate daily.
