Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need additional air compressors or bottled gases to use the eSpray system?

Haydell's eSpray works with installed shop air compressors and does not require additional capacity. The eSpray system attaches to current compressed air hoses/lines, refining compressed air to create perfect fluid carrier.

How much additional volume of compressed air does the eSpray system produce?

eSpray requires 5.8 hp of compressor, a modest increase of 15% over traditional compressed air spray paint systems.

What maintenance does the eSpray system require?

eSpray is virtually maintenance free. We recommend changing inlet air filters annually, or when the indicator reaches the red area.

Does eSpray alter the chemical formula in the paint?

No, chemical and physical composition of paint and materials is not altered in any way.

Could I obtain a better transfer efficiency of the paint by just heating it?

Heating paint may improve viscosity, but has no effect on static charge, and therefore no effect on overspray. Haydell's patented eSpray process is required to improve transfer efficiency, reduce "orange peel," reduce overspray, lower material usage and costs, and lower VOC emissions.

Will heating compressed air have the same benefits as eSpray?

As with heating, compressed air will help with viscosity, but will have no effect on moisture, static charge, overspray, or VOC emissions.

If I dry and filter the compressed air will I have the same benefits as eSpray?

Drying and filtering the compressed air will not affect the static charge of the air/material mixture, eSpray's ionization process is necessary to improve transfer efficiency, eliminate static charge, and overspray. All three variables addressed by eSpray will produce the perfect fluid carrier-moisture free, temperature controlled compressed air that is positively charged creating an electrostatic attraction between material/air mixture and substrate.

Do I need more fluid carrier generators if I have more than one painting station?

eSpray base units are scalable, capable of producing enough anhydrous, ionized compressed air to supply to supply multiple paints stations.
