The Importance of Paint Booth Inspection
The most common problems that are most likely going to face a spray booth include overspray, dripping, spilling or causing the unwanted accumulation of paints. Luckily, these issues can be perfectly mitigated and prevented through efficient paint booth inspection. Since a booth is comprised of various different parts which function differently, it would be great if the inspection is individualized to care for every part of the booth so that no malfunctions occur.
Easy Removal of Paint Accumulation
When paint accumulates in the booth, it is very tedious and daunting to remove. To avoid this from happening, make sure that you apply a protective booth coating during your inspection. Inspections allows you to see the possibility of paint accumulation. You can use the baffle coatings peelable booth coatings and water wash compounds. They all have unique features to help the booth in having paint accumulation, but their common function is to ensure that removal of paint accumulation on the booth is done easily.
If Fremont 59L is used or applied on the stacks, then a hand scraper can be used to easily remove the Exhaust stack overspray of the paint. For easy sludge disposal, the Fremont 59L and Fremont 60 can be applied on the walls of the booth. These two compounds can also be applied on the baffle plates. Exhaust consumes a lot of time to inspect, but it is important to ensure that you check everything on them to avoid future drawbacks.
Smooth Production Line Operation
For perfect production line spray painting, the parts to be sprayed are normally taken off or suspended from the hooks. They are then transported through the spray booth in such a way that any overspray that will miss the parts will paint the hooks. It would be easy to produce line operation by eliminating the paint from the hooks. A paint stripper additive will always reduce the stripping time.
Continued Operation without Downtime
Through maintenance tasks like booth floor stripping, skimming and tank cleaning, the parts of the booth will be made efficient and functioning at a quick speed. Stripping of the booth floors needs to be done using an ideal stripper that would react with the overspray paint for its easy removal. The stripper should be able to retain its functionality so that it can be used in the next maintenance session or stripping session. The nozzles should remain unclogged. To check for any sludge accumulation, remove the cap on the main header, and you will see everything. The solution that is contained in the reservoir tank should be of right chemical composition to avoid sludge from circulating in the whole system.
