  • building a spray booth

    decided to attempt to build a spray booth, don't know yet how it will turn out, i'll keep this post updated this week as i get some work done on it,...if you have any questions, comments, or advice, feel free, you won't hurt my feelings one bit...maybe someone can improve my design

    add a grounding plate to help you save some powder .. i built my booth out of metal and the over spray collects and i take a plastic scraper and scrap in on to a shet of paper and if it is my personal part i will reuse it if it is a customers part i toss it right in the trash

    then blow it out with air 100psi and start all over

      i plan on putting a piece of grounded metal flashing on each side of the filter... how big do you think they need to be?

              Nice! You happen to have a picture of the back so we can see how the back/vent plate is being used? Thanks!

                I was going to vent it outside my shop using a flexible dryer duct and outlet, but i'm going to have to do some work on it because the 4" duct is not large enough to let the amount of air exit the booth. If you look at the picture above, I had to place duct tape around the outer edges of the filter because there was some air turbulance on the outer edges that was actually blowing backwards instead of sucking air through the filter. It does a decent job but I'm thinking now about closing off the exhaust on top and putting a port in the side and attaching my 5hp shop vac to it, I think that will do better. Anyhow, it's great not to have to clean stray powder off everything.

                  With the filter does it need to be vented (sucked) at all?

                      I built my booth over the weekend, I will post pics tonight. I haven't had a chance to try it out since my oven quit on me. I used a normal floor vent and duct work and reduced it to fit my shopvac. When I turn on the shop vac it pull air from the booth directly into the shopvac...not sure how well it works since I haven't shot any powder in it yet. I might need to put a small fan or something in it to push more air but we will see. My booth dimensions are quite large but I wanted to contain ALL overspray.

                        I did that for awhile. One thing I found out that helped was using a drywall bag in the vac.
