GTi Pro LITE review: Aircaps for Clear and Base in Comparison

A common question: What is the difference between the TE10, TE20, HV30 and T110 air caps of the Devilbiss GTi Pro LITE (or the identically constructed TEKNA ProLite) spray gun. Here an overview (from my point of view and after several discussions with painters)

TE10 – basecoat & all rounder

Application:

  • Standard water and solvent base basecoats
  • Air dry and MS clearcoats

Performance Data:

  • Spray Pattern: 290-310 mm (11-12″)
  • Air Flow (@ 2bar): 280 lpm (9.9 cfm)

Misc.:

  • Slower than TE20

TE20 – clearcoat with faster flow

Application: 

  • Clearcoats (especially HS and UHS clearcoats)

Performance:

  • Spray Pattern: 285-300 mm (11-12″)
  • Air Flow (@ 2bar): 350 lpm (12.4 cfm)

Misc. 

  • Faster than TE10
  • In connection with 1.3mm nozzle widely recommended for 2K gloss / clearcoat

HV30 – maximum transfer efficiency

Application:

  • Water base basecoats and clearcoats

Performance:

  • Spray Pattern: 300-325 mm (12-13″)
  • Air Flow (@2bar): 465 lpm (16.5 cfm)

T110 – clear coats with higher solids

Application:

  • clearcoats (with higher solids)

Performance:

  • Spray Pattern: 260-290 mm (10-11″)
  • Air Flow (@2bar): 265 lpm (9.4 cfm)

Misc.

  • Glass finishing
  • The most “forgiving” air cap

What are the recommended air pressures for the air caps?

The air pressure depends on different factors, e.g. the fluid to be sprayed or whether the fluid control is full open or not. A good starting point are following pressure settings:
HV30 Air cap: 1.5 – 1.75 bar (22-25 PSI)
TE10/20, T110: 1.5 – 2 bar (22-29 PSI)
