Default Equipment recommendations for spraying cabinets

Hi, I'm currently using a titan 115 hvlp sprayer to spray my customers cabinet doors and drawer fronts.

I'm looking to upgrade to a better gun and pressure pot system or a air assisted machine.

My goal is to have a setup always in primer, and one setup for finish coat.

Would like to keep primer always loaded so pressure pot seems to be the way to go.

I spray shellac for primer.

And spray inslx cabinet cost for the finish coat.

Any recommendation would be appreciated. Price of equipment doesnt matter much just want best results possible and convenience. Thanks in advance!

Lots of choices out there. Most pros use an Apollo 5 system. I can't stand HVLP, so I use AAA. But if you choose to upgrade your products, most polyurethanes spray better with airless.
I made myself a very simple but effective AAA using a Titan ED655 diaphram pump with rolling compressor hooked to a Graco G15. Its pretty sweet.

@NjJon
I see a lot of painters saying they have one system(pump) for primer and another setup for the finish coat? Or one for oil based and another one for something else? Why is that??

To avoid having to clean them out with harsh materials to swap the different product through it if I were to guess.



For instance, shooting something like BIN requires an intense cleaning job and the materials you flush through it practically melt any acrylic residue and that gums up your filters. Sometimes it can be more cost effective to just have that sprayer shoot only BIN rather than paying for new seals and filters all the time.


Just a guess

A big one is spraying something pigmented and then trying to spray something clear. You'll always have crap in your clear coat.

Filters and prime valves. I replaced three clogged up prime valves in the past two days.

yeah if you do a lot of clear coating you absolutely want a dedicated clear pump. that's a good case for an HVLP gun that you use exclusively for that.
