“Apollo has chosen to not merely meet the regulation standards, but to exceed them,” Apollo president and CEO John Darroch said.

With the new five-stage turbine, a finisher can automatically calibrate the speed of their HVLP turbine, see it on an LCD readout and can easily replicate the result, time after time. The LCD display shows atomizing pressure accurate to 0.10 psi, according to the company.

The turbine’s pressure control system controls motor speed, voltage and amperage worldwide, adjusting automatically for altitude and barometric pressure. A warning light also indicates when filters are restricted: green for clean and red for partially or fully obstructed.

The turbine’s high-transfer efficiency prevents the addition of particulates to the atmosphere making the air more breathable for the equipment operator and reduces pollution of the general environment, according to the company.

Model 1050VR was submitted for a 2011 AWFS Sequoia Award in the product innovation and green categories.

“The 1050VR is a breakthrough product because, when finishing becomes this easy and controllable, people will have a guaranteed quality finish. They can do more and better work as a direct result of their investment in high quality equipment. It is win/win for everyone — and most of all, it is a win for the environment,” said Darroch.
