Airless Paint Sprayers

An airless paint sprayer atomizes paint by forcing it through a spray gun and out a small orifice at high pressure, not unlike a garden hose with a spray gun attached. The pressure on the liquid comes from a motor-driven diaphragm, piston pump unit or hydraulic pump instead of a compressor. Because air is not used to provide pressure, overspray and paint mist are practically eliminated.

Two numbers to look at when determining the capabilities of a spray gun are horsepower and valve opening size. Bigger pumps with bigger valves can handle heavier coatings.
