Orbiter Pipe Painting Tool

  • Efficiently handles wide range of coatings
  • Applies uniform layer at remarkable speed
  • No need to rotate the pipe or tubing
  • Unique gun assembly ensures precise control
  • Air-controlled centering carriage legs easily adjust for gradual pipe bends



Simple Solution for Industrial Coating Challenges
The Clemco Orbiter provides an innovative and efficient solution to the difficult job of applying paint to the inside of pipe, conduit, tubing or other cylindrical structures. With the Orbiter, you can apply a uniform layer of paint at remarkable speed.

Two standard models cover pipe diameters from 3.5 inches through 37 inches. Orbiter I is for pipes 3.5 to 7 inches ID. Orbiter III is for pipes 7 inches through 37 inches ID. Each system includes a paint spray tool with centering legs, an air control assembly, a paint spray gun, and air-control and high-pressure paint hoses. Not included but required for operation of the Clemco Orbiter is an airless paint spray pump. Any standard 30:1 pump is the minimum requirement, while a 45:1 pump may be preferred as dictated by the coating.

The heart of the Orbiter system is the air-control assembly. From this central location, the operator controls start/stop of the rotating-head air motor, the on/off of paint flow, and the air valve and pressure regulator, which control the expansion and contraction of the centering carriage legs.

Easy Set Up and Operation
Used with any standard airless paint spray pump with a minimum pump pressure ratio of 30:1; the Orbiter set up is quick and easy (the pump size will depend upon paint viscosity, hose length, and tip size). The Orbiter is powered by compressed air, which operates the rotating head and the carriage legs. Orbiter I and Orbiter III require approximately 15 cfm and 22 cfm respectively, both at 90 psi.

Various sizes of long-lasting tungsten carbide spray tips are available to suit the specified coating. Paint flows through the spray tip and paint tubing for metering at the head, the working end of the Orbiter. To operate the Orbiter, one operator handles the air-control assembly and paint gun; another manually pulls the tool from one end of the pipe to the other at a speed established by experience and the type of coating being applied and the thickness required.

A Simple, Fast, and Cost-Effective Job
The Orbiter tools offer an effective and precise method of coating pipe. The investment will reward you with the highest rate of speed and most accurately-applied coating, saving you time and money.

The Orbiter I and III tools are each available in four packages to suit jobs with differing lengths of pipe. Choose from models with 6 feet, 12 feet, 20 feet, or 40 feet of hose. Six sizes of spray tip are available, ranging from .018 to .043 to suit the specified coating.
