Step 1: After You Have Papered the Table and Your Parts Are on the Rack
Once you have hung your parts on the rack with clean metal hooks clamp your ground to the rack. Make sure your parts are nice and close to the ground wire to ensure adequate grounding. Also make sure there is no coating on the hook or the wire that would prevent from getting a nice ground to your part. For easy clean up put down wax paper.
Step 2: Connecting All the Parts.
Take the standard tip out of the kit. There is a hole in the gasket on the bottom of the tip. This hole corresponds with the needle on the tip of the gun. Place the tip on the gun so you are inserting the needle into the hole. Then take the gray sheilding cup from the kit and screw that onto the tip of the gun.
Insert the male end of the air hose into the shops air supply. Plug the female end into the bottom of the powder coating unit.
Take the power cord and plug the female end into the bottom of the unit and the male end into the wall socket.
Step 3: Turning the Unit on and Adjusting the Psi.
Step back over to the regulator for the air supply. Point the gun away from you and away from your parts. Pull the trigger on the gun and adjust the psi at about 10-15. Then step back over to the unit. While the gun is still pointed in a safe direction, adjust the powder feed adjustment knob until your working pressure is between 4-5 psi. Now adjust your Kv output so the lights on the indicator are lit to in between 40-60kv while still pulling the trigger.
Once all that is set up you are ready to powder coat! When you pull the trigger a soft stream of powder should be coming out of the tip of the gun. It should look the same as if someone exhaling smoke. If the amount of powder coming out does not look like this, check the psi on the powder feed indicator and the psi coming from the shop. I hope this was a helpful reminder and your project comes out great!
