With the aid of pressurized air, paint is scattered on a surface by a process known as spray painting. This spray painting is done with the aid of paint sprayers. When spraying is being done, it must be done in a controlled environment. These days, there are booths where all this is done. While doing the paint spraying, the operators must have gear that will protect them at all times. These clothing must include a mask that will protect them from the fumes of the paint, glasses, boots, and a full overall.
These paint sprayers atomize the paint so that it becomes easy to apply and is done much faster. Over and above this, the paint is uniformly applied. The atomization process disperses paint in the atmosphere and therefore cannot be done in the open air. Such hazards can only be prevented by utilizing the spray booths, or spray ovens as they are called.
According to the Environmental Protective Act 1990, all spray booths must be subjected to the Local Exhaust Ventilation test every two years. This way, the environment is well protected as well as all the surrounding lives and property. This is a maintenance step that cannot be left behind.
The next thing that needs to be taken into consideration is the quality of the spray done on all the bodyworks. Ensure that you keep the reputation of your garage high by avoiding the use of low-quality paint. Strive to make your work stand out in the best manner possible. Do not do anything that would jeopardize the reputation of your garage.
You must install quality filters on the extraction systems and at the air inlet to keep your booth’s performance at its highest.The performance of your booth can be kept at the peak by installing high-quality filters at the extraction systems and also where the air comes in. The filters will become ineffective after they get worn from prolonged use after a period. It is for this reason that they must be replaced at regular intervals. There are different types of filters, thus, you must know which one to use. Fibre filters and the high efficiency filters come highly recommended.
Paint spray booths contain all the necessary equipment that must be used during the processes. These enclosures must have access to clean water for emergency utilization and also for cleaning. There are other paints that require water for mixing. The booths are of different sizes and shapes depending on the application needed.
Spray painting is done on surfaces of vehicles, gates, benches, window grills, etc. The surface only needs to hold and accommodate the paint to be brought to the booth. Never forget that the spray booth is not your local room. The spray booth must be designed and constructed by experts. For greater returns and gains, keep it in good shape.
