The Accudraft Ventus™ is a modified downdraft spraybooth designed for the start-up operation or facilities that are looking for a basic finishing environment. The Ventus™ engineered as a starter kit and is designed in a universal fashion to accept all Accudraft™ or third party add-on systems like heat (makeup air), waterborne air jets, and energy saving systems. This allows the facility or shop to have a basic setup and add on future capabilities at their own pace. Installation is fast and easy and delivery is quick since above-ground units like the MX400™, MX300™, SS™, & Ventus™ are typically kept in stock.

Semi-downdraft paint booths operate much like a crossdraft since the exhaust is still achieved via the rear of the paint booth workspace, however the incoming air is now introduced to the workspace through small section in the ceiling located at the front of the paint booth. This creates a draft pattern that is directed at a diagonal from the filtered area of the ceiling to the exhaust point at the rear of the paint booth.
The airflow pattern gives a slight advantage over crossdraft paint booths since the incoming air is not going across the painted object but rather on a diagonal heading somewhat downward. A semi downdraft paint booth is also a very economic choice since concrete is not necessary and the cost of the unit is generally a mid-range price from Accudraft since the paint booth does not require a full upper plenum. Singel wall and double-wall insulated versions of the paint booth system are available. The VENTUS is also available without heat or air makeup. Heat makeup and PLC paint booth controls are available as an add-on in the future.
- 4-module set that includes 32 air jets made for drying waterborne paints. Provides up to 300 feet per minute airflow at the surface of the coating and can be added on to any paint booth system.
- Fully weatherproof outdoor paint booth with roof and side enclosure for air makeup system and optional outdoor paint mixing room. Includes corrugated steel roof and gutter system. Vinyl coated paint booth and outdoor enclosure exterior in your choice of color.
- EnergySmartTM Paint Booth VFD system with automatic pressure regulation and "standby" feature which puts the paint booth into economy mode. When the paint spray gun is not in use, the paint booth will slow all functions down to idle. Once spray painting resumes, the paint booth will increase heat and airflow back to the normal rate.
