“If you are looking for a quality product with unmatched customer service, then you have come to the right spot.”
Powder coating booths are not too different from paint booths, in that airflow is critical to proper environment. Good airflow and you capture the powder. Poor airflow and the powder ends up on the ground. To see one in action, check out this video.
What you do with the captured powder becomes the next deciding factor as to the design of your powder coating booth. Spray to waste or recover using dust collection?
Spray to waste is exactly what it sounds like. Powder sprayed and simply disposed of after use. Spray to waste type powder booths are common place in lower volume shops, who may process a variety of parts, requiring custom one-off colors. These booths are higher maintenance due to the filter service demands but make for a good entry level powder booth.
Powder recovery booths are geared towards end users that are looking to capture spent powder with hopes of reusing it to help deflect powder acquisition costs. These types of recovery booths are great in applications where no color change is present, and the application is repeatable consistently. Yes, some recovery powder booths have color change options but to date, remain limited in their options. Powder recovery booths can also come equipped with fluidized beds making it easier to reuse the spent powder.
Any of these designs are important to discuss so that you are acquiring equipment to meet your needs today and into the future.
