Spray Gun Air Pressure Regulator: Do I Need One?

It’s a good idea to have a regulator on or close to the gun, to mitigate any pressure drops in your system across air lines, and to be able to tune your gun’s spray pattern based on the type and viscosity of material you’re shooting.

As a rule, most HVLP guns will require much lower pressure than other air tools in your shop, so a regulator allows you to set your compressor at a usable level and fine-tune the gun. Regulators are relatively expensive, and they mount to the hose junction of the gun.
