SATA Debuts Lighter, Smaller Spray Gun

German spray equipment manufacturer SATA has introduced the SATAjet 4000 B spray gun—smaller and lighter than its predecessor and “designed to fit the hand like a glove.”

The gun replaces SATA’s 3000 B model.

Ergonomic Updates

SATA has redesigned the gun handle and lowered the center of gravity to improve the gun’s balance and minimize wrist strain. The 4000 B is 15% lighter than its predecessor, with an integrated digital pressure gauge and RPS disposable cup.

Control elements have been redesigned with a profile that allows adjustment even when wearing gloves. The round/flat spray control has also been revamped, so that only one quarter turn is required to close the gun. The spray fan can also be precisely tuned to the shape of object to be painted.

New Nozzle, Settings

SATA says the 4000 B offers a uniform, smooth, soft spray fan. Based on material, routine, application technique and available compressed air volume, the painter can select between the "Super Saver" HVLP low pressure or the "Super Speed" RP version with optimized high-pressure technology.

The new nozzle concept reduces the noise level by up to 50%, according to the manufacturer.

The recommended spray gun inlet pressure of the RP version has also been reduced, now ranging between 2 and 2.2 bar.

The unit fully complies with VOC regulations, with transfer rates exceeding 65%. The SATAjet 4000 B is available with the following nozzle set-ups: sizes 1.2, 1.2 W, 1.3 and 1.4 (RP version) and sizes WSB, 1.3, 1.3 C, 1.4 and 1.5 (HVLP).

Cleaning and Maintenance

The SATAjet 4000 B’s smooth, corrosion-resistant chrome surface is easy to clean, without edges or undercuts, the manufacturer says. The new fluid tip sealing also saves cleaning.

A trigger cover element protects the paint needle from overspray, increasing the lifetime of the needle packing, while self-tensioning paint needle and air piston packings minimize maintenance and repairs, SATA says.

Like its predecessor, the 4000 B has a Quick Cup Connector with bayonet for a quick, clean cup change. The air cap thread has been shortened. The air cap is made of chrome-plated brass; the fluid tip and paint needle are stainless steel.

SATA spray guns are developed and manufactured in Germany and distributed in the United States and Puerto Rico by Dan-Am Company of Spring Valley, MN.
