One of the largest investments a body shop will make is their spray booths, and any down time experienced can lead to a significant loss of earnings for the body shop.
Replacing Spray Booth Filters
In times of austerity it may seem like a good idea to delay the replacement of worn filters to save on costs, but more often than not this is proven to be a false economy. Overdue filter changes force the spraybooths equipment to work harder in compensation for the clogged filters. Motors, burners and where fitted variable speed drives experience an increased level of wear and tear leading to a higher risk of equipment breakdown.
It has also been proven that spray booth filters have a significant impact on the quality of work carried out in the spray booth. Blocked filters reduce extraction efficiency, slowing overspray clearance. The buildup of dust and paint particles increase the risk of imperfections in a paint job, reducing the quality of finish. In addition to this slowing the airflow can cause increases in drying times which in turn reduces productivity.
