Fuji Pressure Pot
« on: May 25, 2018, 02:22 PM »
Hello Foggers,
Wanted to share this. Just picked up my new 2 1/2 gallon pressure pot from Fuji Spray. As I got a large painting project to do, filling the pot supplied with the gun many times is a pain in the butt. So I decided to get a 2 1/2 gallon pressure pot so I can place the gallon in it. The compressor will pressurize the pot to deliver the paint to the gun and I will use the full air from my Q5 to atomize the paint.

Should be fun.
Cheers,
JC

Wow thats really cool! Didnt even know that was an option. So how do these work? I have a Q4. Does this requite a separate air compressor to pressurize the pot or can it be pressurized from the turbine?


Also, I dont even see that on their website. How much was it?

You will need a small compressor to pressurize the pot. I use a Rolair JC10.
I just tried it with water and it works. Only needed to pressurize the pot 10psi which is set with a valve on top of the pot.
Now to test it out with paint.

Looks like one from CA Technologies.
Looks similar to CAT. It's another company that builds it for them.

Hi ben,
This is a new product for them. It was designed to go with their new compressor guns but I'm using it with my T70. As for pricing, They will let me know tomorrow the US price and the Canadian price. I get special pricing as Fuji and I trouble shoot and test things together.
I'll post once I know.

Cheers,
JC

For those who have never seen the efficiency of a pot connected to a gun. In this video, Q4, Qual Craft pot, I think I was using the JC-10 compressor to pressurize the pot. I do recall the pot pressure was set around 18 psi.

As JC mentioned, the 2.5 gallon pot has enough room in it so you can just place a gallon can in it, really cut down on clean up time. Speaking of cleaning one of the easiest systems to clean.

For filtering, use Trimaco pickup tube socks.

@JCLP

Do you have a preference between the Fuji /w Pot and the Graco Ultra?  I've had a hard time spraying BM Advance through my Fuji 4 stage (No Pot) as a hobbyists...  The Graco Ultra MAX seems interesting since it supports a large product selection (i.e. Latex, lacquer, shellac...) 

Thanks

$340 not bad if it’s a quality unit.  What accessories come with it (hoses etc.)?  You can get cheap 2 gallon pots for around 150 on Amazon but I’m not really sure what the differentiating specs/features are.

@tjbnwi
I’ve seen various door rotisseries in your videos and photos.  I need to build or acquire a pair or two.  Any pointers you can share?

The latest set is Uni-Strut. This gave me the ability to remove a few bolts making storage easy.  I’d take some pictures for you but the rotisserie’s are in Indiana, I’m in Colorado.

Send me a PM next Thursday afternoon, I’ll be home at get some pictures then (if you remind me, this getting old is reeking havoc with my memory).

@tjbnwi Thanks Tom - very kind of you to take time on your trip back in Indiana.  No worries at all if it's not possible.  I may be a bit younger than you but I bet I'll have trouble remembering to remind you.   [big grin]

Waiting?  Am I missing something (I probably am)?  What would be the advantage of the Fuji pot, aside from the logo, over any other quality one e.g. CA Tech?

The Fuji office here in Canada is in Toronto which I'm close to, and I have found that their customer service and assistance has been great for my Q4 Gold.  I don't even know if anybody carries CA Tech here in Canada.

Mcfaddens and Woodessence carries CA Tech.
Both are very good.
Last time I looked, Richelieu carries a limited range of stuff. Looks like they are mostly a Kremlin dealer now.

Depending on where you get it, The CAT tank is more expensive.

So for those that use pressure pots. On the compressor you use how do you deal with moisture? From what I read most people are using small compressors. I can't imagine your using a dryer? Or is moisture not really an issue?

Moisture from compressing/un-compressing air is not an issue when all you’re using the air for is to pressurize the pot. Once, per fill up. A 2-1/2 gallon will have consumed less than 1/2 cubic foot of air by the time all the liquid has been pushed out.

Not enough moisture in a single cubic foot to worry about.

 Just wanted to say thanks to this forum and all that contribute. I've ordered my pot from Fuji. Once again great service and ultimately its the customer service i've received from them in the past which really made for an easy decision,Where  is  a good place to get paint sundries for spraying . My local Sherwin is great but its a small location and do not stock many supplies. I was surprised at some of the prices for pot liners. Any one use regular garbage bags to keep the inside clean?
