Mechanical Rust

Hey guys, here is a quick introduction to some of the booth repairs that we are capable of.

Living in Florida can present some unique problems with booths. Some of those problems come are rust. With the sea breezes on both sides of us, it can cause great rust problems. All booths are known for having rust, these are metal buildings, they are bound to happen. It happens because things are not treated right. If there is a leak in the roof, even a small one, this can cause bad rust problems. Wetting down the floors without protecting the metal also causes rust inside the booth.

The booth I am about to show you is about 3-5 years old. You will notice that the rust is creeping into the motor supports. Left untreated, this could cause a catastrophic failure. Shutting down the booth for weeks. This can be a very easy fix. With a little preventive maintenance and a proactive approach to leaks in the roof, this can become a non-issue. Installing galvanized metal will ensure that the mechanical will be safe for years to come. I just wonder how this could be fixed before it even becomes a problem.

Semi-Down Draft Paint Spray Booth

This job was done on the east coast of Florida. This particular paint booth presented some problems with fan spacing. The position of the lights and their layout, dictate the position of the drying fan systems. In this case, we saw the opportunity to spread the fans out and have coverage all over the booth. The rear fan and the ceiling fan are tied together. The left and right fans are tied respectively. That allows for a wide coverage area, allowing for odd shaped parts.

The customer was already spraying water based paints. After installing the fans, the customer noticed a considerable improvement on efficiency. We hope he continues to enjoy water, and we would like to think that we had a small part in his success.
