Fuji PPS with external compressor
« on: January 19, 2018, 04:11 PM »
I recently started using my Fuji MiniMite 4 and T70 gun with the PPS system and like many others on here, I like it. After using it a bit, I think it may be more efficient to use an external compressor to pressurize the cup instead of using the air from the gun. I thought I recalled some folks on here doing so, but couldn't find anything by searching the forum.

Does anyone use this setup? Do they find it more efficient? What PSI do you run from the compressor to pressurize the cup? What do you use to cap off the valve from the gun?

I'm thankful for all the wealth of information on here!

I don't use an external compressor on the cup, but I do route turbine pressure directly to it.

Most cups 10-12 psi would be the max you could/should apply.

Other option is a pressure pot. It would be a little awkward with the T-75 gun.

Sorry, I have a T70 gun. I'm probably going to pick up one of the cheaper 2 quart pressure pots soon. I'm not spraying a lot or that often, but the 1 quart size just isn't quite enough when I do.

Pot is easy with the T-70.

Did you thread the Fuji fitting or is that a part you can buy?   I like that idea, every time I use the 28oz pps cups it gets difficult to spray with 1/3 left in the container.
