Recirculating Paint Booth Product Info

Air BalancingA 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.
LightingGFS Recirculating Paint Booths feature integrated, four-tube, inside-access light fixtures. All GFS light fixtures are ETL and ETL-C listed and come complete with energy-efficient LED lamps.
Fans & MotorsGFS Recirculating Spray Booths include a recirculating fan and three-phase, TEFC, tri-voltage motor(s) with variable pitch pulley, as well as a tube axial exhaust fan(s).
Personnel DoorGFS Recirculating Paint Booths include 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 FiltrationGFS 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.

GFS Recirculating Paint Booths are constructed with single-skin, 18-gauge, G-90 galvanized steel. Pre-punched booth panels and nut-and-bolt assembly take the guesswork out of installing a paint booth and provide more structural integrity.

Recirculation is an effective method of reducing operating costs of a paint booth. GFS Recirculating Spray Booths reduce operating costs 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:

Automatic Paint Spray Booths with Conveyor Opening

Recirculating Airflow16,000 CFM
Exhaust Airflow4,000 CFM
Total Airflow20,000 CFM

By recirculating 16,000 CFM, this system reduces exhaust by 80 percent


Manual Paint Spray Booths with Conveyor Opening

Recirculating Airflow5,000 CFM
Exhaust Airflow3,000 CFM
Total Airflow8,000 CFM

By recirculating 5,000 CFM, this system reduces exhaust by 62.5 percent
