Downdraft Paint Booth Airflow Concept
The biggest advantage to a downdraft paint booth is cleanliness. Air is drawn around the vehicle or painted object and exhausted from underneath the object. Downdraft paint booths pull paint over-spray and contaminants downward and away from the painted object no matter where the painter is spraying. The risk of dust and over-spray contamination in the finish is greatly reduced and the painter is also in a much healthier and safer environment.
The Timeless™ Direct Drive air makeup unit is a completely integrated intake, heat, and exhaust system designed for high production downdraft paint booths. Direct drive turbines provide powerful airflow through the paint booth and recycled heating provides fast heat & curing capabilities with maximum energy efficiency. Painters can put more jobs through the paint booth and generate more profits for your business. more >>
The Accudraft SmartPad™ is a digital touch pad controller that includes all processes in one computerized unit. Programmable Logic Controls (PLC) allow the user to make changes on the fly and allow access to all phases of the spray and curing process. Settings include adjusting cycle time, temperature, waterborne system activation/deactivation, lighting settings, burner control, heat intensity and reaction time based on season of the year and much more. more >>
The ITALIA paint booth system is also available in a pit-less downdraft design where the entire paint booth and mechanicals are installed on a raised steel basement with drive-up ramps. This provides all the benefits of a downdraft airflow paint booth system without the need for expensive concrete work. A fully grated floor provides one of the cleanest finishing environments available.
The ITALIA paint booth system is available as a weatherproof outdoor unit with all elements self contained within the roof and adjacent enclosure. Valuable shop space is saved and installation downtime is completely eliminated. The entire system can be installed while the rest of the facility keeps right on working. more >>
