DS18 Big Bad Wolf 2015 Jeep

Rob Ferro's (MR DS18) 2015 is a sight to see! This Jeep has been nicknamed "The Big Bad Wolf" by the DS18 staff and Jeep community. It is very well known on the social media and show circuit featuring all DS18 equipment and very unique fabrications. We will be debuting the new DS18 J-LOUD and the new DS18 Jeep box that fits two 12 inch subs firing down with custom plexiglass cuts to show the beauty of DS18 subwoofer motors. Powered by our EXL and FRX series of amps, this Big Bad Wolf hosts plenty of power to power all the amazing DS18 sound components and LEDs this crawler has. Charging all these pieces of loudness and light is the DS18 LTI40ah lithium battery. This battery can be used in large systems demanding up to 12,000 watts clamped! Also inside will be a rocking DS18 JK Sound bar housing four 8 inch mids, four super tweeters, and 2 ear piercing drivers all wrapped in RGB lighting!

SATA compressed air filtration and its importance in the paint booth

SATA air filtration started in 1931 and continues today meeting the highest standards in air quality and performance offering two different filtration series in the US market. The quality of filtration is the same between the two series, the only difference is the amount of CFM that flows through the unit. The SATA 200 series filters allow for 72 CFM at 90 PSI, while the SATA 400 series filters allow for 129.9 CFM at 90 PSI. Both are modular filter systems allowing the user to adapt to varying shop conditions and requirements, and are easy to service and maintain.
The first stage of the SATA filter removes water and oil by spinning the air through a cyclone tube and starts removing particulate by filtering the air through a sintered bronze filter. The first filter stage captures contamination down to 5 microns in size.

The SATA X-nozzles take atomization to a whole new level

With the new SATAjet X 5500, the German premium manufacturer SATA complements its product portfolio with an innovative high-performance spray gun defining a whole new application standard for future based on the new X-nozzle system.

The concept of this nozzle system is easy and straightforward:
Painters now have a choice between two distinct spray fan shapes “I” and “O”- in both application technologies – HVLP and RP.

What is different with the X-nozzle system?
“O”-nozzles have an oval-shaped spray fan pattern with a larger dry zone and a wet core to accommodate increased application speed, at the expense of slightly less application control during the painting process. The film build per coat in comparison to an “I”-nozzle of the same size is slightly higher.

Dan-Am Air Aluminum Pipe System together with SATA Air Filtration, improves productivity and cleanliness for both breathing and spraying air

Today’s clean air requirements are more critical than ever. Air tools, blow driers, HVLP spray guns, and supplied air respirators may require more air volume and better air quality than needed in the past. Not only does clean air effect equipment performance, but it is also critical for paint coatings performance. DanAm Air’s aluminum airlines together with SATA filtration can solve all of these issues.
The Dan-Am Air system is reusable and easily adaptable to any space, not only ensuring safe, clean air for your team but also increasing your shop’s efficiency and improving your business’s bottom line.

The Three-Stage Filtration
SATA filtration is available in two sizes, which can flow up to 129 cfm at 90psi—an exceptional amount of air for a single filtration unit, Gravenhof says, enough to accommodate multiple booths on a single filter.

For a quick and precise color shade evaluation in the paint booth use the SATA® trueSunTM daylight lamp

The selection of the correct color shade for refinishing a vehicle requires a source of light that reproduces the entire color range of visible light (daylight) as accurately as possible. The SATA® trueSunTM LED lamp which was especially designed for this purpose allows a quick and precise professional color shade evaluation and identification within the paint shop.
When selecting the right daylight lamp there is no room for compromise, any rework caused by an incorrect color identification is an expensive mistake with high rework costs.

SATA RPS cup system enhances body shops’ productivity

When it comes to quality paint finishes, SATA sets the standard for the industry. The SATA painting system does just that, starting with the SATA Rapid Preparation System (RPS) multipurpose cups.

The SATA RPS cups have a unique venting system that plays into the efficiency of the overall SATA system. The vents allow for an even flow rate through the cup—so, whether the cup is entirely full, half full, or just has a couple ounces in it, the flow rate will stay the same.

“It guarantees an even color match and film build throughout the paint job,” said SATA Dan-Am Co. Director of Sales and Marketing Tony Larimer. “What that means for a shop is that, if a painter is mixing material, he might only need two ounces. He can mix just what he needs, get the same results and you don’t have the extra material that will go to waste.

Breathing equipment to protect your health

With the aim to further increase the acceptance of breathing protection equipment, SATA offers a modern-design solution, the SATA air vision 5000.
Every day painters are exposed to solvents, sanding dust and overspray. As a consequence, it is paramount for painters to effectively protect their respiratory tracts as well as their heads including eyes, hair and skin.
The breathing protection system consists of the supplied air respirator, SATA air vision 5000, and a belt unit, which allows for easy attachment of different add-on modules. Depending on the quality of the supplied compressed air, there are two available options of air regulation units: either the SATA air regulator or the SATA air carbon regulator, which also includes an activated charcoal adsorber. With the SATA air warmer, SATA air humidifier and the SATA air cooler, there are three additional optional modules that can also be mounted on the belt to further enhance the breathing comfort for the painter.
