The main purpose of a spray booth is to keep the powder overspray contained. This is of utmost importance because breathing in powder spray dust is hazardous. What’s more, if the dangerous mixture of Air, Dust, and a spark of Ignition (ADI) can cause a dust explosion. The secondary purpose of the spray booth is the economical reclaim of powder overspray. For example, a company that uses only one colour can easily reuse the overspray, saving the company a lot of money over time. Powder coating does not waste paint as a wet paint system does, forcing companies to throw out the overspray with the dirty filters.
