So far the paint booth with the exhaust blower has been a really nice improvement to our mobile cabinet refinishing operation. It has saves a lot of space compared to our old spray booth set up and keeps things a lot cleaner, as well as more professional looking.
It doesn’t totally eliminate overspray dust from escaping the booth when using a traditional airless sprayer, as some dust still does get out but it is a pretty good job overall, definitely improved from how we used to do them. This could be partially due to the fact that one of the ducting attachments had a small bend in it which may have affected the seal. I hammered out and so it is a pretty snug fit but it could be losing some suction power. Paint line sent me a replacement free of charge even though it was probably shipper's fault, so I do appreciate that.
Aside from that my only improvement would be making the ducting a little bit wider as it’s quite a task to get it around the blower. I realize it has to be tight but there are straps already on that could be used to tighten the fit. Also, the case for holding the metalducting attachment squares is not quite wide enough in my experience, as it took my employee and I several minutes in all of our combined strength to finally cram it inside there.
Having said that, overall I’m happy with the purchase. It was expensive but it will hopefully get a lot of use over the next few years.
