RECIRCULATING

industrial PAINT BOOTHs

GFS Recirculating Paint Booths provide accurate control of climate and airflow, while providing the most efficient operating system possible. This type of booth is often used in conjunction with temperature and humidity controls, regenerative thermal oxidizers and other VOC abatement equipment.

Not to overlook safety, all GFS Recirculating Booths include all of the required airflow monitoring systems and controls to ensure a completely safe operating environment during all modes of operation.

Learn how recirculating spray booths provide energy savings by reducing the volume of make-up and exhaust air for the booth while maintaining accurate control of climate and airflow. 

Features

Air Balancing

A key feature of GFS Recirculating Spray Booths is the Consta-Flow system. This system maintains constant airflow in the booth, by automatically adjusting the recirculation fan to the changing conditions of the exhaust filters. Consta-Flow consists of a VFD, differential pressure gauge and sensing probes.

Lighting

GFS Recirculating Paint Booths feature integrated 4-tube, inside-access light fixtures. All GFS light fixtures are ETL and ETL-C listed and come complete with energy-efficient LED lamps.

Fans & Motors

GFS Recirculating Spray Booths include a recirculating fan and 3-phase, TEFC 3 tri-voltage motor(s) with variable pitch pulley, as well as a tube axial exhaust fan(s) and a three-phase, TEFC, tri-voltage motor(s) with variable pitch pulley.

Personnel Door

Each Recirculating Paint Booth includes a personnel door with panic latch and clear tempered glass observation window, as well as a personnel door in the exhaust chamber (less window).

Four-Stage Exhaust Filtration

GFS Recirculating Spray Booths feature a four-stage exhaust filtration system. The first two stages, roll media and fiberglass filter pads, are in the exhaust plenum. The third and fourth stages, final filters, are in the recirculating plenum. This filtration system effectively removes 99.9 percent of particulate down to 0.5 microns.

Construction

GFS Recirculating Paint Booths are constructed with single-skin, 18-gauge, G-90 galvanized steel.

Pre-punched booth panels and nut-and-bolt assembly takes the guesswork out of installing a paint booth, and provides more structural integrity.

 

Cost Savings

Recirculation is an effective method of reducing operating costs of the paint booth. GFS recirculating booths reduce operating cost by using less energy and exhausting less air. At a recirculation rate of 80:20, energy use is reduced by a factor of five.

In addition to energy savings, a recirculation booth can also provide capital expense savings, since air handling and abatement equipment is reduced in size when using a recirculation booth.

The following are examples of the energy savings you could see in a recirculating paint booth:

Recirculating Airflow 16,000 CFM
Exhaust Airflow 4,000 CFM
Total Airflow 20,000 CFM
By recirculating 16,000 CFM, this system reduces exhaust by 80 percent.
Recirculating Airflow 5,000 CFM
Exhaust Airflow 3,000 CFM
Total Airflow 8,000 CFM
By recirculating 5,000 CFM, this system reduces exhaust by 62.5 percent.
