Down Draft Paint Booth and Paint Mixing Room

This is my last spray booth install its a 28 ft by 14 ft Down Draft Bake Booth with 3 ” walls it will ramp up to 165 degrees with a 1.5 million direct fired gas heater you can really speed up the drying cycle. Normally we paint @ 80 degrees and with a variable speed Freak drive on the exhaust side you are able to adjust the flow of air movement as the filters get dirty on the exhaust side the operator can speed up the motor allowing for positive pressure at all times to keep dust from entering the booth.

This was in the build stage we were installing the tile floors for easy clean up and dust free paint jobs

Below you can see the filter rack in the booth ceiling before the Spray booth filters were installed.
Note we poured concrete pad  for this booth 6 inches above grade to prevent water in the shop from rusting out the booth

 We built a 30ft long  paint mixing room with Tile floors so the painter was in a clean room to enter the booth during spray operation

 Here is another peek  of the  inside of the paint room where the painter has a bench to pre- mix for his job

This was the far best investment I made for the booth its called a Chisum air bag lift for painting it operates
with an airbag so its safe for the spray booth environment it made painting full paint jobs a pleasure

As you can see here look how nice it is to tape off a cal and do the final prep procedures before the paint

below is a picture of the lift its stands as high as 1/2 a coke can and rolls around with a T handle

hope you enjoyed the post on Down Draft Paint Booth and Paint Mixing Room
