Paint booths are designed to contain hazardous vapors and provide a safer, healthier environment for painters. Understanding how the components of a paint booth work and what purpose they serve are key to maximizing your spray booth’s performance.
Clogged or overloaded filters hinder proper airflow. This causes dust or overspray to recirculate and affect the finish of your paint job. Regularly changing spray booth filters decreases the likelihood of equipment failure. It also helps ensure your spray booth is operating efficiently and keeps the production costs of your shop low.
Whether you are looking to purchase a new paint booth or have a current booth without an air replacement system, it is important to understand how the air that is exhausted from your paint booth is or will be replaced.
