GFS recirculating paint booths provide accurate control of climate and airflow, while providing the most efficient operating system possible. This type of booth is often used in conjunction with temperature and humidity controls, regenerative thermal oxidizers and other VOC abatement equipment.
Not to overlook safety, all GFS recirculating booths include all of the required airflow monitoring systems and controls to ensure a completely safe operating environment during all modes of operation.
The following features are standard on GFS Recirculating Paint Booths:
GFS Open Face Booths are constructed with single-skin, 18-gauge, G-90 galvanized steel.
Pre-punched booth panels and nut-and-bolt assembly takes the guesswork out of installing a paint booth, and provides more structural integrity.
A key feature of GFS’ recirculating booths is the Consta-Flow system. This system maintains constant airflow in the booth, by automatically adjusting the recirculation fan to the changing conditions of the exhaust filters. Consta-Flow consists of a VFD, differential pressure gauge and sensing probes.
GFS recirculating booths include a recirculating fan and 3-phase, TEFC 3 tri-voltage motor(s) with variable pitch pulley, as well as a tube axial exhaust fan(s) and a 3-phase, TEFC, tri-voltage motor(s) with variable pitch pulley.
GFS’ recirculating booths feature a 4-stage exhaust filtration system. The first two stages, roll media and fiberglass filter pads, are in the exhaust plenum. The third and fourth stages, final filters, are in the recirculating plenum. This filtration system effectively removes 99.9% of particulate down to 0.5 microns.
GFS recirculating paint booths feature integrated 4-tube, inside-access fluorescent light fixtures. GFS light fixtures are ETL listed (Class 1 Division 2) and come complete with T-8 color-corrected tubes.
Each recirculating booth includes a personnel door with panic latch and clear tempered glass observation window, as well as a personnel door in the exhaust chamber (less window).
Recirculation is an effective method of reducing operating costs of the paint booth. GFS recirculating booths reduce operating cost by using less energy and exhausting less air. At a recirculation rate of 80:20, energy use is reduced by a factor of five.
In addition to energy savings, a recirculation booth can also provide capital expense savings, since air handling and abatement equipment in reduced in size when using a recirculation booth.
The following are examples of the energy savings you could see in a recirculating paint booth:
By recirculating 16,000 CFM, this system reduces exhaust by 88%
By recirculating 5,000 CFM, this system reduces exhaust by 62.5%
GFS recirculating paint booths can be customized to meet your unique specifications.
