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. 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. The protective gear must have boots, a mask that will protect them from the fumes, boots, and glasses.
It is much easier to spray and much faster due to the fact that the sprayer has enough pressure to atomize the paint. 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.
After every two years, all spray booths must comply with the Local Exhaust Ventilation test according to the Environmental Protective Act 1990. This secures all the surroundings and ensures that the environment is properly guarded. This is one of the maintenance stone that cannot be left unturned.
Another maintenance procedure on the list is to consider the type of paint and its quality when you are applying on your bodyworks. Do not sink your garage’s reputation because of using bad and shoddy paint. Strive to make your work stand out in the best manner possible. Never risk 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. After a certain period, the filters will get old, become worn and ineffective. Therefore, the filters must be regularly replaced. There are different types of filters, thus, you must know which one to use. The most recommended ones are the high efficiency versions and fibre filters.
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. 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. Keep in mind that the booth is not just an ordinary chamber. The booth has to be constructed by professionals. For greater returns and gains, keep it in good shape.
