Question Turbinaire HVLP Paint Sprayers

Anybody have any experience with Turbinaire HVLP Paint Sprayers? I am planning to spray Algrip and wondered if a
Turbinaire HVLP Paint Sprayer would be appropriate? I have a older Binks 7 that I painted cars in another life but the HVLP lack of overspray looks like the deal! Any ideas?

Why not contact Awlgrip and ask them? They can probably tell you the required specs and perhaps are familiar with the sprayer.

There are several models of turbinaire. For thick paints you need a least a 4-stage turbine. I use a turbinaire for furniture finishing. If I don't thin some finishes like laquer I get orange peeling. Can Awlgrip be thinned? The unit comes with a viscosity cup so you can determine if the finish is the correct viscosity.
