Spray Booths

A liquid spray booth is an enclosure around the spray operation that provides containment of the oversprayed paint and controls the spray environment. The spray booth includes an exhaust fan to create negative air pressure inside the booth. The exhaust air contains the overspray, directs paint solids to the filters, and directs the solvent vapors to atmosphere or an abatement system. The booth provides a clean and safe environment for the operator and smooth airflow to enhance paint transfer efficiency.
