FILTERS EXPLAINED
That said, for all filters 4 to 5 stages - here is what you need.

*Typically you would only need the first 3 stages for "perfect air"

line
1) micron Usually Called a "water trap" Filter located near or on your compressor
40 micron bowl filter. These filters use a metal or glass bowl that trap water. They usually come with a small dirt filter which is about an inch or two big. They generally run $20-$40 and may have come with your compressor. This is good enough for air tools, but not good enough for your spray equipment. Our Water Filters have a good 30-40 micron trap and a solid regulator. If this is all you have, you can start spraying with confidence with the addition of a simple $5 disposable here.
line
2) Filter

STAGE 1

Usually called a first stage filter

5-10 micron filter: This is the basic level needed for most spray equipment. In many circumstances, this is all you need, especially if you do not have a spray booth. Add a $5 disposable or desiccant to be extra safe and many finishers will be satisfied. These filters run $50-$150.
line
3) filter

STAGE 2


Usually called a 2nd stage filter

.1 or 1 micron filter: This is the best filtration on the market and ones you will find in a professional spray booth. You need to add this as a 2nd filter, because otherwise it will get clogged up with the larger particles and your filter life will be very short and therefore costly to maintain. 1 exception, we carry the CAT 1 micron filter with an EXTRA LARGE long life (6 month constant use filter) This has a larger enough filter to handle both larger and smaller particles. Since we have great systems from $120-$180 complete even a home user can afford the best air quality on the market. That's what we do, bring professional equipment to serious users.
line
4) dissicant

STAGE 3


usually called a 3rd stage filter or desiccant filter for getting rid of water vapor for solvent based paints

What is desiccant? Silicon beads. These bead actually "ZAP" the water molecules out of the air so you Quartally have no possible way of having any condensation in your line as the water is completely gone at the molecular level. As air enters the desiccant dryer, it is distributed evenly through the desiccant bed, absorbing water vapor from the air, producing the -40°F dewpoint.  If you have a lot of water problems or are very humid, you may want to look at desiccant. Disposable run about $18.00. Large Systems run $100-$200.00 for only the 3rd stage alone.
5) mc100

STAGE 3 WB


New Carbon Filters for Getting Rid of Oil for Waterbased Paints

This is not necessary for most shops unless you are having problems with oil contamination. While oil is beneficial for your air tools, it is not good for your spraying. It can take the place of your dessicant filters.
6)   Final Protectant As the air leaves the system, it is given a final filtration process to insure all desiccant dust is trapped.
7)   Usually called an oilier For your air tools. They are mechanical and need oil. They have small oilers that attach near or on your air tool or you can break off the line after stage 1 or 2 and run a separate oiler. Your air tools will last longer. You do not include this filter in your spray booth but split your line.

SIMPLE SETUP

Things to remember:

1) Let your air cool off the compressor. Big shops have refrigerated air coolers which dehumidify and condition the air. A minimum of 25' to your air control units.
2) If using Pipes slope your pipe toward your air drains so everything flows downward toward your drains.
3) Use an air Drying, Filtering System.
4) If you have very little air, use a high flow air hose or couplers. - Call for Couplers.
5) Use a finishing Filter at the Gun to remove any last contaminant.
6) Filter your paint as you pour it into the Gun or pot.
