Many painters are reluctant to use air drying systems… Why? 

 

What Painters Have:
What Painters Need:
  • High velocity systems stirring debris
  • Fan blades collecting and dispersing debris
  • Overspray collection on nozzles
  • Old equipment agitating debris
  • Manually moved equipment in and out of booth
  • Air movement systems effectively addressing usual issues

Contamination
Contamination is a common issue found with air drying systems for paint booths. Many of these systems have good intent on speeding up the paint process, however this often  is the cause more issues. There are many ways Contamination is ending up on painted surfaces, which results in additional steps such as nib and buffing. This slows down flow in the paint shop. There are multiple ways air drying systems stir contamination in the booth.
 
Drying Systems Stirring Contamination
  • High velocity systems causing overspray to lift from the floor and walls.
  • Moving fan blades inside the booth, generating a static charge, collecting overspray, and releasing when started
  • Over spray collection on nozzles, released when turned on
  • Lack of maintenance on mechanical systems causing vibration, displacing overspray
  • Operator continually moving systems in and out of the booth 
The ability to address these issues can speed up the painting process and quality of work leaving the booth. Resulting in less rework, thus creating a better flow of vehicles in paint shops. Contamination can be the thorn in a painter’s side, as it can come from multiple sources. Tackling the issue of air drying systems removes a source of contamination and results in faster dry times when applied appropriately.
 
When air drying systems have not been applied appropriately painters often avoid using the systems due to the issues created regarding contamination. In looking for effective air drying systems there are several features to look for:
  • Low Velocity Air
  • Features Directly Addressing Contamination
  • Systems requiring minimal adjustments
