Detailed Description

Earlex Spray Station HV5500 Pro HVLP System w/ 2 spray tips

The Earlex HV5000 Spray Station has been one of our most popular products the last couple of years because of its attractive price, ease of use, excellent performance and overall great value.

With the new Earlex HV5500 Spray Station, the successor to the HV5000, Earlex has juiced up the turbine motor from 500 watts to 650 watts, allowing an increase in air flow from 24 CFM (cubic ft/min) all the way up to 42 CFM, a 75% increase! The system's pressure rating has increased by 10% and now measures 2.0 psi (pounds/square inch). Factored together this means better atomization and faster distribution of the finish, especially when using water-based finishes. The new system also comes fitted with a new sturdier and larger diameter hose.

Just like its predecessor, the HV5500 still comes with an excellent teflon-lined steel spray gun.

Overall this system provides convenient HVLP turbine powered performance at a very attractive price.

The compact turbine is built into the base of an easy-to-carry housing tote that neatly accommodates the system's 13 ft long hose and quart cup spray gun. The bleeder style gun has a simple jam-fit style connection for the 1" diameter air hose.

Fitted with the included 2.0mm fluid tip and needle, the gun applies clear water-based coatings with ease.

Fitted with the 1.5mm fluid tip and needle INCLUDED IN OUR PACKAGE DEAL, the gun does an excellent job applying thinner finishes such as lacquer.

A larger 2.5mm needle and tip option is also available for spraying thinned latex paint.

A single adjustment knob precisely controls the amount of material released into the air stream. To change the spray pattern (horizontal, vertical or round) while you're spraying, simply push in on the spring loaded air cap and turn to the desired position. Teflon coated quart cup with standard lever locking lid is pressurized by the turbine for consistent material delivery.

Turbine caddy measures 12" x 12" with a 25" high fixed carrying handle. 6' cord with plug. Includes viscosity cup and spray instructions.

The Earlex HV5500 Spray Station uses the same accessories as the HV5000.

Manufactured in England. Includes a 2-year limited warranty.
