Modular, Dry-back Spray Booth

Client

A Rolls Royce Company

Location

United Kingdom

Brief

To create a paint spraying facility for a motoring company


Introduction

When Airblast Eurospray was first contacted by this particular client, a Rolls Royce company that manufactured gearboxes for turbine engines, a growing part of the business was the re-conditioning of old units. A section within the factory had been designated to house a new cell. This cell would contain the surface finishing equipment required to bring this element of the re-working in-house and under their control. Previously the paint process had been done in a remote, heavily used paint shop elsewhere in the factory.

Key Decision-Making Factors

  • Location of proposed unit: Inside existing factory
  • Units Working Hours per Day: Minimal, this application only called for 1-2 hours painting per day
  • Internal Dimensions: (l) 4m, (w) 4m, (h) 3m

Solution

As the utilisation of the proposed paint facility was to be low and required no force drying, Airblast proposed a dry-back booth rather than the more expensive wet back option (wet back facilities are more commonly utilised in production environments when the more expensive initial outlay of the wet back can be realistically offset against the cost of replacement filter cartridges on dry back units).

The customer had local existing electrical fittings that were not compliant with HSE guidance for those within range of paint spray application. To counter this, an extended canopy was installed.

Statistics in Brief

  • Facility Type: Modular Dry Back
  • Weather Proof: No
  • Internal Dimensions: (l) 4m, (w) 4m, (h) 3m
  • Safety Alarm System: Included
