Paint booths are normally equipped with the products and equipment necessary to perfectly complete any refinishing job. While most modern paint booths are also designed and constructed with high quality materials and brand new technology, there are always extras and upgrades available that can help your shop become more productive and make you more money. It’s like buying a car – the standard model has everything you need to get from point A to point B, but the luxury package or the sports package always has that little extra something.
Accudraft offers various options and paint booth accessories to not only make things easier, but also to increase productivity and eliminate contamination and mistakes. Heated air make up units, exhaust ductwork, filter kits, control panels, light fixtures and extra doors are just a few examples of the wide range of paint booth accessories to choose from at Accudraft.
The Space Saver paint booth air make up system is a modern fire make up unit, which allows the user to spray, flash, cure and cool down the inside of the paint booth. This unit comes standard with any Accudraft Ventus or SS spray booth, but it can also be added to any existing spray booth to give it that extra little something. The unit can be vertically or horizontally positioned, it can be suspended from the ceilings or it can be installed above the spray booth cabin.
The SmartPad is a digital touch control pad that can control all of the processes in one unit. Programmable Logic Controls (PLC) allow the operator to make changes quickly and it also provides access to the different phases of the spraying and curing process. Settings that can be controlled include:
The SmartPad has different settings for solvent-based coatings and water-based coatings.
Xcelerator Waterborne Paint Drying System
The Xcelerator is a high-speed waterborne paint drying system designed for both new and existing spray booths. Jet modules that are installed into the corners or into the walls of the booth supply concentrated air and heat to any freshly sprayed waterborne base coats allowing them to dry much faster. The system employs 32 directional and adjustable jets for specific and targeted paint drying. Use of this system increases productivity and reduces energy usage since flash times are virtually cut in half.
The EnergySmart energy saving system can be added to any spray booth or air make up system and it can save your shop as much as 50 percent off on your electric bill. Traditional spray booths use a standard motor startup, which can cause a spike of almost three times the motors normal operating amperage. Power companies usually charge according to the highest pull from your facility, even if it happens for just a second. With the installation of the EnergySmart system all motors will start smoothly and softly and gradually climb up to their target amperage, which will avoid the costly initial spike at every startup. In coordination with Accudraft’s SmartPad control panel an operator can perfectly control the pressure in the booth and the speed of the fans. This way the booth only uses power when it needs it instead of constantly running on full blast.
Accudraft paint booths, prep rooms and mixing rooms are all outfitted with top technologies and the equipment necessary to allow the operator to complete a successful paint job every single time. However, there are numerous paint booth accessories that you can choose from that can improve your productivity, lower your bills and help you run your business.
