The use of low quality filters can have a significant impact on the quality of work produced from your spray booth.
Quality Spray Booth Filters Improves Equipment Performance
This can lead to:
- Reduction in airflow within the spray booth, increasing drying times which then reduces productivity.
- Contamination in the painted product due to dust filter ‘by-pass’
- Increased spray booth plant usage, resulting in an increase in ‘wear and tear’ of parts, such as motors and burners. This increases the possibility and frequency of equipment breakdowns and faults, which can significantly impact on the Production Process.
Filter Replacement IntervalsReplacement of Spray Booth filters at the correct intervals is an essential part of the Preventative Maintenance process and is equally as important as the quality of the purchased filters.
- It is recommended that spray booth extract filters are replaced at regular intervals and this can vary between 100 and 250 running hours, depending on the size of the extraction area of your spray booth. This should be monitored via the hours run indicator on the spray booth control panel. Further advice can be provided by contacting us.
- Failure to replace spray booth extract filters at the correct intervals will cause a reduction in the extraction rate of the spray booth which will cause the non-extracted paint over-spray dust to impact on the quality of your paint finish, resulting in expensive re-work.
- It has been proven over many years of experience that failure to replace spray booth extraction filters at the correct intervals will cause contamination of the spray booth extract fan and other internal mechanisms, such as air control dampers. This will result in a reduction in the air flow performance of the spray booth and higher maintenance costs and equipment ‘downtime’ when the fans / dampers need to be replaced or cleaned.
- It is recommended that spray booth input (ceiling) filters are replaced at regular intervals, this can vary between 500 and 1,000 running hours, depending on the size of the input area of your spray booth. This should be monitored via the hours run indicator on the spray booth control panel. Further advice can be provided by contacting us.
- Failure to replace spray booth input (ceiling) filters at the correct intervals will also cause a reduction in the incoming replacement air volume, which could cause issues with burner reliability and dust by-passing the input filter leading to increased contamination of the product.
