Our technologies

As a market-leading manufacturer, WAGNER offers a wide range of products equipped with different technologies. From robust piston pumps to low-maintenance diaphragm pumps, entry-level low-pressure devices (HVLP/XVLP) and spiral pumps for the application of plaster.

Depending on the material and application field there are different spraying methods. The material is pressed through the nozzel at high or low pressure, it is atomised with or without air assistance and depeding on the viscosity it is divided in very small or bigger droplets.

Overview of our pumps

Diaphragm pumps

The material is transported by means of a stroke movement in the diaphragm. Products featuring this technology are robust and yet easy to handle on a construction site or workshop. Pneumatic double diaphragm pumps are ideal for woodworking applications and produce top surface quality. Electrically operated diaphragm pumps can be used as both Airless and AirCoat spraypacks.

Piston pumps

Piston pumps transport the material by means of a stroke movement in the piston. This creates high suction performance, making them ideal for highly viscous materials. Some piston pumps are operated pneumatically. This provides protection against explosion and makes them suitable for use in workshops. Our hydraulic piston pumps offer even greater performance and can also be operated using petrol.

Double diaphragm pump

The material is transported by means of a stroke movement of two diaphragms working in opposite directions. This creates a very low-pulse material flow. This also allows you to work with materials which are particularly sensitive to shearing and moisture, and with premixed 2K materials. WAGNER double diaphragm pumps are explosion-proof and operated by compressed air which means that they can be used in workshops.

Spiral pumps

Spiral pumps transport the material by means of extrusion. Two components, the rotor and the stator, are used for this. The rotor rotates and thus transports the material gently to the cavities of the stator. This technology can be used to transport extremely heavy materials, for example, for machine application of plaster, where the material is transported along the hose to the spraying lance using a spiral pump. Adding compressed air to the spray lance atomises the heavy material and applies it evenly.

Turbines

Low-pressure spraying (HVLP / XVLP) uses a high volume of air and low air pressure (up to 0.7 bar). The atomised air generated in the turbo blower flows through an air hose to the paint tank on the spray gun, where it then builds up pressure. This transports the coating material along the uptake pipe to the nozzle and atomises it with the remaining air.

The XVLP technology (EXtra Volume Low Pressure) is based on the HVLP technology. The XVLP series has greater atomisation power due to 60% higher air volume in comparison with other low-pressure devices. This extends the spectrum to encompass a far wider range of materials. Benefits of both technologies: The spray jet can be adjusted to the object and the devices are very easy to operate.

Our spraying methods

Airless

Airless

Unlike the case of air atomisation, airless atomisation technology atomises the material using the pressure of the material alone, i.e. without the use of any air. An electric, pneumatic or petrol-driven pump pressurises the material and forces a defined quantity of material through a nozzle aperture at up to 25 MPa. During this process, the material is diffused into a finely atomised spray jet. Although airless technology is particularly suitable for the application of emulsions, this spray process is also often used for painting jobs on building sites. WAGNER marking units also use airless spraying technology.

AirCoat

AirCoat

In the AirCoat process (airless + air), the material is forced through the nozzle at a relatively low pressure (3 - 12 MPa) by a piston or diaphragm pump, and compressed air (0.05 - 0.25 MPa) is used to assist in the atomisation process. This is possible thanks to the central air supply (air cap) that is located directly at the nozzle aperture and surrounds the sprayed material like an envelope.

XVLP

XVLP

This new technology covers a much wider spectrum than today’s HVLP technology, and it offers the special Extra (X). Due to 60% higher air volume and 30% greater area coverage than other low-pressure devices the XVLP series shows a higher atomisation performance. Using the WAGNER XVLP Spraying system (consisting of a turbine and various spraying attachments), means varnishes, standard lacquers, high-viscosity lacquers and water-based paints can all be processed in a quality that convinces the professionals.

HVLP

HVLP

Low-pressure spraying uses a high volume of air and low air pressure (up to 0.07 bar). With the FineSpray method, the material is completely atomised at the outlet of the nozzle. The low pressure of the material with the high volume of air ensures slightly larger material droplets and therefore less spray mist.

VECTOR guns

VECTOR guns

In the development of the new Airless gun generation the focus was steered to user-friendliness and ergonomics. The result: three new Vector gun models that are perfectly tailored to the specific needs of the user. At the same time the guns are as usual robust for demanding everyday operation on the construction site.

TempSpray

TempSpray

The TempSpray heating systems are heated by means of an electric heating element located inside the hose, directly in the flow of paint. The material is heated evenly along the entire length of the hose until it reaches the required temperature (can be adjusted continuously from 20° to 60°). This reduces the paint's viscosity, resulting in improved application. All TempSpray systems can be adapted to WAGNER Airless units.
