On-site nitrogen for spray painting

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. This also applies to spray painting. Any type of blemish or imperfection instantly diminishes the value of the entire job. To ensure that doesn’t happen, more and more spray painting professionals are turning to nitrogen. And thanks to the on-site nitrogen generation solutions from Pneumatech, they always have a reliable supply of nitrogen (N2) available.

What role does nitrogen play in spray painting?

Traditionally, compressed air was the method of choice for applying paint to metals and other surfaces. However, using nitrogen for spray painting has a lot of benefits. It reduces paint consumption and the required pressure. And, because nitrogen allows the paint to dry more quickly, another coat can be applied sooner.

In addition, over-spraying and eliminating paint blemishes becomes easier. Another benefit is that the paint is better distended on the target. This results in a better Distinction of Image (DOI) and an improved quality.

Furthermore, using nitrogen for spray painting requires fewer solvents. In other words, there are lots of advantages that lead to lower costs, improved quality, and higher productivity.

Requirements for nitrogen for spray painting

Nitrogen for spray painting does not have to be very pure. A purity of 95% is sufficient to get the job done. However, there are some other requirements that do apply:

  • Reliability: Since N2 plays such an important role in spray painting, a dependable supply of nitrogen must available at all times.
  • Compact and quiet: Nitrogen generators used for spray painting are often installed close to the point of use. With people working in close proximity, a compact and quiet generator is a must.
  • Cost savings: Spray painting requires a lot of nitrogen. Therefore, the ability to generate N2 efficiently is key to reducing operating costs.
  • Sustainability: Keeping an eye on energy consumption isn't merely an issue of curbing costs. It can also contribute to lowering a shop’s environmental impact. 

On-site generation of nitrogen for spray painting – the preferred solution

Many spray painting professionals still purchase their nitrogen – even though generating N2 on-site offers more advantages.

Here are just four:

  • Superior cost-efficiency saves you money
  • Eliminating deliveries of bottled or liquid nitrogen reduces your environmental footprint
  • Take charge of your own nitrogen supply and enjoy total flexibility
  • Less hassle by removing supply logistics 

Take your spray painting to the next level with the PMNG HE
