Air Pressure Regulators
Modern air pressure regulators, also called manometers, may also incorporate a water trap / water filter.
This is a feature of the AFR200 pressure regulator.
Most air pressure regulators / water traps also have a pressure gauge dial showing measurements in psi and bar.
A pressure regulator screws directly on to the air outlet of an air compressor and is essential as it controls the air pressure being delivered to the airbrush.
A water trap is highly recommended as water vapour is not only present in the everyday air but is also produced when you place through a mechanical process such as pressurising it.
Water will cause many issues with paint if not removed from the air supply.
Mini In Line Air Filters
Mini in line air filters are also available and can be connected to the airbrush male air inlet valve.
The air hose then attached to the male air inlet of the mini in line air filter.
Although not essential they provide a secondary defence against water vapour if used in conjunction with a main pressure regulator / water trap.
