Compressor spraying is the use of the air compressor for spray painting. There are many different types of air compressors. An air compressor basically compresses atmospheric air to a given pressure, the air is usually stored in a pressurised vessel, the air receiver, as the air expands it creates volume and speed which can be used to atomise paint or power air tools. For spraying the choice of compressor will depend on the air consumption and pressure requirement of the Spray Gun, and the number of spray guns used.

Purpose of the Course

The series covers the air compression spraying system in use today and stresses proper safety precautions throughout. Students will learn how to use the Belt Driven and the Direct Driven air compressor, assembling the equipment, the air compressor working principle and operating techniques so that they can use this knowledge in the real working environment in motor or construction industry.

The Compressor Spraying Course is designed for new pipefitting students who have little to no knowledge of the field. All the terms used are defined or explained throughout the courses, so students are not required to have a pipefitting vocabulary to understand the content.
