Here's a great quote from a site on the topic...
With conventional airless you have about a 60% efficiency meaning that you have lost as much as 40% of your paint to the atmosphere and or your spray booth filters. With the Air-assisted airless the transfer efficiency is about 85 % so you are wasting 25% less of your paint. This would mean that for every 100 dollar pail of lacquer you are buying you are saving about 20 to 25 dollars. That is a savings that can quickly add up and pay for the rig.
I have not used either system personally but I do know that the quality of finish is much better on top of the efficiency going up. It atomizes the finishes much better.
I just happen to have a friend that's selling a complete Kremlin 10-14 system. He just posted about it yesterday on another site that I frequent so pm me if you're interested and I can put you in contact with him if he still has it.
