hello. wich brand is recommend to buy an aerograph.

is there any problem if my compressor is lubricated?

Hi Ramon,

In my honest opinion, no it should not be a problem. All compressors, regardless of their type, need a method of lubrication to moderate heat, friction, and the wear-down of the pump and critical components. The biggest difference, however, is whether the lubrication comes from oil or a special material coating on the parts. Regardless of this fact, that oil or material coating does not enter into the air system, so I don't see any reason to worry. If you are concerned however, it is possible to purchase an in-line filtration system to make sure anything is removed before the compressed air passes through the spray gun. I hope this information helps!
