Apollo 5000 Series Needles, Nozzles & Air Caps Chart

Apollo Needle & Nozzle Options for 5000 Series Atomizer Gun

Many spraying difficulties are the result of using incorrect size needles, nozzles and air caps.

The chart below shows you which needle and nozzle combination to use for various applications. The maximum viscosity measured with a Zahn #2 cup is also shown.

Save over individual price parts by purchasing Needle & Nozzle Sets, or Spray Kits.

Up to four sets of nozzles and needles can be stored in the Atomizer Deluxe Carrying Case which is supplied with the gun.
