With the aid of pressurized air, paint is scattered on a surface by a process known as spray painting. The devices used for this work are known as paint sprayers. The spraying must be performed in a controlled environment. Spray booths provide the space for doing this task. The one doing the spraying must wear protective clothing. The protective gear must have boots, a mask that will protect them from the fumes, boots, and glasses.
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. Due to the pressure of the sprayer, the paint is atomized and dispersed in the atmosphere, and thus the spraying cannot be performed in open air. Such hazards can only be prevented by utilizing the spray booths, or spray ovens as they are called.
All spray booths must follow the Environmental Protective Act 1990 that ensures that they are 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 one of the maintenance stone that cannot be left unturned.
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. Make sure that all the work done is of high quality. Do not put the reputation of the garage at risk.
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. Thus, after a certain definite period, the filters must be replaced. You must know which filter to buy and install since they are of different types. The high efficiency filters together with the fibre filters have the best track record.
During spraying, whatever is needed must be housed inside the spray booth. These enclosures must have access to clean water for emergency utilization and also for cleaning. The water can also sometimes be used to mix those paint that require water to dilute and apply. Depending on the type of application, the booths differ in size and shape.
Spray painting is done on surfaces of vehicles, gates, benches, window grills, etc. As long as the surface can hold and sustain the paint, then it can be brought to the booth. Never forget that the spray booth is not your local room. It has to be professionally constructed. The spray booth must be properly maintained if you want to have a good reputation and reap high profits.
