With the new SATAjet X 5500, the German premium manufacturer SATA complements its product portfolio with an innovative high-performance spray gun defining a whole new application standard for future based on the new X-nozzle system.
The concept of this nozzle system is easy and straightforward:
Painters now have a choice between two distinct spray fan shapes “I” and “O”- in both application technologies – HVLP and RP.
What is different with the X-nozzle system?
“O”-nozzles have an oval-shaped spray fan pattern with a larger dry zone and a wet core to accommodate increased application speed, at the expense of slightly less application control during the painting process. The film build per coat in comparison to an “I”-nozzle of the same size is slightly higher.
“I”-nozzles instead do have a parallel spray fan pattern with a minimal dry zone and a dryer center which is ideal for painters preferring a reduced application speed and maximized application control during the painting process. The film build per coat in comparison to an “O”-nozzle of the same size is slightly reduced.
What are benefits of the Xnozzle system?
The optimized air distribution allows for enhanced spraying uniformity and atomization with both fan shapes. In addition, with the new design of the fluid tip and air cap, the air distribution insert is no longer required which considerably reduces paint waste and makes cleaning easier. SATA has also reduced the noise level of this Whispering nozzleTM during application, giving painters the feeling of a much softer and more comfortable coating process. The SATAjet X 5500 matches each application requirement, such as specific characteristics of the paint system, climatic conditions and application method. End-users can now rely on a consistent system which offers clear and well-structured application options.
