Paint Booth Filters – PFS
Filters Are The Foundation of Your Booth
Paint booth filters are an essential part of any spray booth. We supply all sizes and materials for your specific unit.They generally need to be changed every 3 to 6 months depending on the production and volume of cars coming into the shop. Our filters are top quality and designed to take the maximum amount of contaminants away from the air, giving you a cleaner work environment.
Without Good Paint Filters, Your Booth Won’t Perform
Filter changes are recommended for your booth to run efficiently. Our preventative maintenance includes a filter change, and it allows for your booth to never dip below maximum efficiency. Our filters are designed to lower emissions and maintenance costs associated with pollution, making for a more eco-friendly shop. Filters provide unmatched protection from dust and other contaminants.
Platinum Finishing Filters
We supply filters for all units that we distribute. Our filters are high efficiency and high temperature. Our paint booth filter systems consist of only top of the line manufacturers such as Speritex. Some of the higher quality booths come with a three to four stage paint booth filtration system. The first stage consists of a wire mesh filter on the roof, while the air makeup has multiple intake filters for collecting the primary dust, and finally our high temperature, high efficiency ceiling filters capture the rest to ensure clean intake air for the perfect finish.
In any booth, the filters are vital as they draw away dust from the surface of objects to be painted. If they are neglected, the overall condition and functionality goes down. Paint booths also need a general service every 3-6 months to ensure the maximum amount of contaminants are being removed from the work area. Our filters also comply with all local and national regulations, as do all of our booths and equipment.
How Do They Work?
Spray booths have multiple types of filters, working in conjunction with one another to provide the optimal airflow through the booth. The first step in this process are the intake filters. These filters pull air from outside of the exterior of the booth, pulling clean air into the unit. Next, the exhaust system pulls toxic smog and paint debris from the unit, completing the process. Finally, air makeup filters filter the air coming from the hoses inside of the booth. For your application, please select the right filter size, composition, and particulate rating.
Air Makeup-These filters clean the air coming out of your spray hoses inside of the unit. Large particles are also trapped here before they can reach the inside of the booth. Without these, the air quality of the whole unit will suffer. A change is recommended every 3-6 months.
Intake Filters-These filters are vital to the success and overall quality of your paint job. These also protect the paint from any debris or contaminants that would enter otherwise.
Exhaust Filters-This filter is responsible for pulling overspray from the booth. Generally, the stronger the fan, the more overspray is collected, often wearing these filters down. Another goal of these filters is to keep you and the environment safe. Pulling toxic contaminants from the air keeps a safer interior and allows for reduced emissions. Lastly, these filters protect your ducts, and plenum from overspray buildup. This prevents higher filtration costs down the line and increases the longevity of the unit.
Different spray booths have filters arranged in various ways, depending on its airflow. Crossdraft booths usually have intake filters on their front side, allowing for clean air to enter the area.Cross-drafts generally utilize polyester panel filters or linked panel filters, as they sit in a housing with no clips to secure them. Semi-downdraft booths generally have filters on the interior of the booth, usually located on the sides of the unit, allowing for better airflow. These booths also sometimes have a center row pit, with filters to further improve the airflow and quality of the paint job. Full-downdraft booths usually have a whole grated floor, with full filters underneath. The filter for this type of booth is usually diffusion media pads, which spread the airflow evenly, ensuring a good coat anytime you use PFSDD. This allows for maximum air movement through the unit, as more filters are being used. Each booth that has an air makeup unit also utilizes filters to allow for the air from hoses to be cleaned. Booths also need to be serviced on specific schedules, depending on which filters become dirty first, and knowing airflow through the booth is the first step to this.
We also provide turnkey filter services. This service includes an evaluation to determine the filters needed, the current condition of the filters, and the optimal replacement filters. Next we will create a service plan customized to your specific needs in order to get the best value for your money. Please inquire with us if you would like to start this process, or for any general questions regarding filters or services.
