Question about Psi Air Tools & Compressors

Open Question

I just tried setting up Point Zero airbrush. The compressor fills with air to the regulated psi but the air is not going from the hose into the brush.

SOURCE: how do you regulate the air pressure on FUWA AIRBRUSH COMPRESSOR

There is usually a regulator where the air coupling is. if not,just add one with some simple fittings and a regulator you can find at home depot in tool dept.

SOURCE: How do I connect a badger airbrush hose to a Airbrush Depot TC20T compressor?

Airbrush Depot compressor should be a 1.4NPT which is the most common- Badger makes an adapter for this size to their hose fitting. That fitting should be available from many sources. Badger did/does use a couple of sizes so make sure you know which model of brush you have.

I have 2month old a paasche d500sr air compressor suddenly wont build up any airpressure


there can be several reasons - but first check connectors if there is lose connection and therefore loss of air and pressure.

if there is no pressure at all from outlet:

1. switch on the compressor
2. open drain valve and check for airflow (this is this small nut on the bottom of clear bit),

if there is airflow:
1. close drain valve
2. remove air hose from outlet and check for airflow
3. lift regulator valve and screw it back to minimum (anticlockwise), value on the gauge should be 0 (zero)
3. lift regulator valve and now open it (turn clockwise) in full, check for airflow,

if there is no flow, now, that suggest regulator assembly is at fault, to confirm:

1. switch off the compressor
2. remove drain and regulator assembly (you will be left with hole directly above membrane)
3. switch on compressor - check for airflow, if there is no airflow now (without regulator assembly), it meant that valve is gone

as in both cases (valve and regulator assembly) compressor is still under warranty, return to the point of purchase and they will either repair or replace the unit, if you desperately need to airbrush - just pump tractor or other tyre insert with "normal" compressor and then use this air to pressurise your airbrush.

Almost no air will come out of brush, very hard to blow through line


do solve problem by elimination:

1 disconnect pressure regulator from supply, start compressor and check for air flow, if flow is good, switch off
2. connect pressure regulator and start compressor, if it is equipped with automatic stop/start check cut off by closing valve in full, if it is without automatic stop/start then open slowly valve and check for air flow, if it increases - no problem there either, switch off
3. connect your hose to the outlet and switch compressor on, you should have similar pressure on the end of the hose as it was after regulator. if pressure is much lower - check for blockage in the hose, maybe gasket or something in the tube, cheap and nasty hoses have tendency to "k i n k" (this common english word describing twist in hose preventing liquid or gas flow is regarded as profanity by fixya - stupidity is without borders...) and puncture, clean or replace the hose, i use on some of my airbrushes these little lines from surgery (blood transfusion, oxygen, aquarium air, they are perfect! and - much cheaper - mostly for free than special airbrush lines).
4. check flow on airbrush, on fully open valve should be not much less than it was coming from regulator, if there is little or no flow, increase flow on the piece, it have usually depending on the type needle regulator on the valve.

I am using an iwata eclipse cs airbrush with an iwata compressor. the comopressor seems to be working fine when power, but the airbrush is not getting and air. when i push down for air release, nothing...


Air brushes us a Theory called a "venturi" in where air pressure lowers the pressure where the paint is kept and causes it to go out the nozzle. I would try seeing if there is an obstruction in the hoses to the brush and confirm that the compressor is moving air. If none of these things are an issue also while cleaning the parts may give the appearance that the item is clean then try soaking them over night in paint thinner and replacing the O-rings and gaskets.

Pressure switch adjustment problem...


I think I follow you... the adjuster over the large screw is used to set your tank pressure but also sets the cut-in/cut-off pressure. You have another regulator to control the pressure to and thru your hose but that doesn't insure that you won't exhaust the tanks supply and use more air than your pump can produce. It doesn't matter what pressure you set it at if your pump can't produce enough cubic feet per minute of air to keep up with your output. If your air use/output is within the pumps output, your idea will work just fine and you can set the hose regulator just below the cut-in pressure but Remember, even a little airbrush uses a lot of compressed air but sanders, grinders, sprayers and impacts use a Ton so don't try this without having somebody monitor the compressor periodically while you try it. It all depends on your air demand.

The air is flowing back into the color barrell


First of all we must know how is works,that is air enters the brush causing a vacuum at the paint hose,where the hose is dip into the paint barrel,so paint will fill the vacuum where it will attend the brush,so if the air mechanism in the brush is glogged air will flow in the paint barell.Solution is to dismentle the brush and clean the air mechinism

Does this dental air compressor have a oil pressure safety switch?if so, where is it located? can I find a wiring diagram


Air compressors are designed to operate many different tools. The value of a commercial air compressor is many times greater than the purchase price because of the amount of work a single air compressor can perform. Dental air compressors are some of the most reliable because of the high-quality air they supply and precision tools they operate. As a result, dental air compressors can be adapted for a number of different tasks, including artistic air brush painting
1.Disconnect the air compressor from the dental tool air supply. Pressure and air supply rate-of-flow settings are different for air brush painting than for air delivery for dental tools.
2.Reset the air pressure on the tank to a range between 15 and 20 pounds per square inch (psi). The exact operating pressure for airbrush painting will vary, depending on the application and the type of paint used.
3.Reconnect an air-supply hose and a siphon style airbrush to the compressor.
4.Fill the airbrush's paint vile with lacquer-based paints. Test the air brush and paint performance on a piece of cardboard, or scrap piece of cloth
material before beginning the painting project. Every time the air compressor is connected to airbrush, or a new paint color is loaded into the brush, a short test spray should be performed. After each test adjust the air volume, and the paint flow in the gun to achieve the desired results8_16_2012_1_32_17_am.jpg
