Grounding and Electric
Requirements
Spray gun: ground through connection to a properly
grounded fluid hose and pump.
Fluid supply container: follow local code.
The sprayer requires a 120V AC, 60 Hz, 15A circuit
with a grounding receptacle. Never use an outlet that is
not grounded or an adapter.
Solvent pails used when flushing: follow local code.
Use only conductive metal pails, placed on a grounded
surface such as concrete. Do not place the pail on a
nonconductive surface, such as paper or cardboard,
which interrupts grounding continuity.
Grounding the metal pail: connect a ground wire to the
pail by clamping one end to pail and other end to ground
such as a water pipe.
Maintaining grounding continuity when flushing or
relieving pressure: hold metal part of the spray gun
firmly to the side of a grounded metal pail, then trigger
the gun.
WLD
Do not use the sprayer if the electrical cord has a damaged ground prong. Only use an extension cord with an
undamaged, 3-prong, plug.

Selecting Tip Hole Size
HINTS:
Tips come in a variety of hole sizes for spraying a range
of fluids. Your sprayer includes an 0.015 in (0.38 mm) tip
for use in most spraying applications. Use the following
table to determine the range of recommended tip hole
sizes for each fluid type. If you need a tip other than the
one supplied, see the chart below.
•
As you spray, the tip wears and enlarges. Starting
with a tip hole size smaller than the maximum will
allow you to spray within the rated flow capacity of
the sprayer.
•
Maximum tip hole sizes supported by the sprayer:
– ESP: 0.015 in. (0.38 mm)
– 1500: 0.015 in. (0.38 mm)
– 1700: 0.017 in. (0.43 mm)

This sprayer is set up for most airless spraying applications. Details on tip selection, tip wear, coat thickness,
etc. are provided on page 13.
Preventing Excessive Tip Wear
•
Spray should be atomized (evenly distributed, no
gaps at edges). Start at low pressure setting,
increase pressure a little at a time until you see a
good spray pattern, without tails.
Motor only runs when gun is triggered. Sprayer is
designed to stop pumping when gun trigger is
released.

WRRORZ
Turning it left (counter-clockwise) decreases pressure.
WLD
If tails persist when spraying at the highest pressure, a larger tip is needed or the material may
need to be thinned.
311139A
•
To prevent excessive tip wear, spray at lowest pressure that atomizes paint.
•
If maximum pressure of sprayer is not enough for a
good spray pattern, tip is too worn. See Reversible
