Continuous agitation of the paint/liquid in Pressure Feed Paint Containers has become increasingly important these days, as there is a very large proportion of heavily pigmented and metallic ion coats are in use nowadays. Without continuous agitation, there would be chances of variation in paint viscosity & color change effect onto the component produced from the beginning and end of a painting batch. The Bullows L-20 Air Motor has been introduced & designed to provide efficiently and economically this continuous agitation.
L-20 Air Motor imparts a 180º oscillatory movement to the three Blade Scroll Paddle which provides a degree of agitation hitherto un-obtainable. A remarkable feature is that agitation is greatest at the center of the bottom, a point which in orthodox designs is completely stagnant. Many agitator users have found that the use of this Air Motor and Paddle Gear has made it possible to achieve exact colour matching of pastel shades, where this had previously been impossible.
On connecting to any air line, L-20 Air Motor will exert a torque of 400 in./lb. at 80 lb./sq. in. which is sufficient to break out paddles to mix paint or material of heavy fillers which have stood for several days in a container.
The L-20 Air Motor will operate satisfactorily on 1 c.f.m., as it has very less friction & leakage proof whereas air consumption of other air motors is usually 7-10 c.f.m. on a comparable duty.
The motor is very less prone to wear & tear due to low operating speed, generous bearing surfaces and grease bath lubrication of all working parts. There is no mechanical noise from the motor as exhaust flow is so less which is virtually inaudible and hence no silencer is required to fit onto the motor.
