Regularly Replace Spray Booth Filters
Replacing the extract filters on your spray booth between services is just as important as the regular maintenance checks. By doing this, you are ensuring your spray booth is working both to its optimum efficiency and productivity, as well as ensuring you remain compliant with EPA legislation.
Depending on the type of extraction in your Spray booth, and the scope of work it’s used for, extract filter change frequency can vary between 100 and 250 running hours. This could lead to needing changes as frequent as every fortnight, but as a minimum at least three times between main Spraybooth service intervals.
Delaying changing these spray booth filters results in a drop in extraction of paint overspray through the filters as they block, the end result causing defects in paintwork. The cost of having to redo one paint job is often more expensive than a set of filters, so in the long run having a schedule in place to replace your filters will prove more profitable.
Only the Best Quality Booth Filters and Products from AGM
Obviously while value for money is important in the current climate, ensuring you remain compliant is also critical. Good quality filters will hold more overspray / dust than a cheaply priced product, the weight (or Dust holding capacity) is important when comparing. There are a number of internet based companies who will sell a standard product that is bought in bulk, without considering the actual type of filter required for the design of Spraybooth you have installed. AGM Services staff have extensive knowledge of many different types of Spraybooth manufacturers, makes and models, as well as the different types of extraction available, to be able to provide you with a quote for the correct product. Often a 4” (100mm) filter will fit without suppressing airflow, easing the load on the synthetic secondary filter, as opposed to buying a 2” (50mmm) filter that while cheap to buy blocks quicker and requires more frequent and expensive labour and downtime costs changing. It goes without saying that all products supplied by AGM Services work in compliance with statuary obligations under the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) legislations.
