The Todd Engineering Olympian 1000 series spraybooth sets high standards in price and performance for the budget entry level, new start-up and low throughput markets.
The spraybooth is compatible with water-borne paints and the Olympian’s low cost and streamline installation makes it a competitive and far less risky option against the purchase of a second-hand spraybooth. Contrary to its low cost, the Olympian’s cabin is to full specification regarding size, construction & finish. The air handling plant is designed to be compact & to be accessible for easy routine maintenance. The airflow design provides for a good through-flow of air for the removal of paint overspray & vapours without the need for excavation, floor grids, etc. This makes installation very quick and easy.

LayoutThe booth is a rear extraction type spray booth that requires no additional groundworks prior to installation. The machine is simply constructed on a smooth, flat concrete base with an extraction chest at the rear and plant work situated on top. This provides a front to rear, diagonally flowing tunnel of air which moves across the entire vehicle to carry away over-spray and fumes.
ConstructionThe spray booth cabin has a fire-resistance rating of 30 minutes and is constructed using double skinned insulated panels with white polyester finish internally and externally.
PerformanceThe plant work is fitted with two 3.0kW direct-drive bifurcated axial fans to achieve the design airflow rate of 14,000m3/hr. This provides a rate of 3.5 air changes per minute within the cabin, with extracted air being exhausted to the atmosphere. The extraction system is fitted with two-stage filtration using 50mm EU2 green paint stop and EU3 blue pre-filters; this ensures that emissions meet EPA requirements. The input system uses high-quality EU5 filter media to ensure incoming air is free of contaminants down to 10 microns
LightingTodd Engineering has developed a state-of-the-art LED lighting system specifically for use in our range of spraybooths that meet and surpass the very highest standards required in the automotive refinishing sector. The cabin is superbly lit with high level-light pods which are angled to reduce glare and shadowing, these pods are outfitted with a state-of-the-art LED lighting system that gives illumination levels in excess of +1800 lux through the use of high output LED SMD Chips designed to give colour temperature of 5000K @ 90CRI which offers unrivalled lighting quality when colour matching. These LED’s consume 50% less energy than conventional tubes with an equivalent light output and operate via an external low voltage driver at 36VDC. The lighting is fitted with a hi-tech laser-etched ‘Luminit’ film which removes the visual appearance of each individual LED and creates a flat panel of light which is distributed and angled to prevent glare and shadowing. The light pods are finished with a frameless toughened glass cover and intumescent seal to separate electronics from the booth atmosphere.
Spraying CycleFresh air is drawn from the atmosphere & is heated to the required temperature. It then passes through EU5 ceiling filters into the booth & over the vehicle carrying away paint over-spray & vapours. The air is extracted via a twin dry filter system & exhausted to atmosphere. By using recommended filters with regular changes, 99% of pollutants can be captured
HeatingThe spray booth is fitted with a direct-fired natural gas/ LPG burner with an output of 90- 110kW or 300,000 Stu’s/hr; a pneumatic changeover system allows the spraybooth to recirculate air within the cabin to rapidly reach low bake temperature.
Noise LevelsComfortable working cabin levels of between 70-75 dB, variable speed motors contribute to 50% lower dB outbreak levels
Main DoorsThe main vehicle entry doors are two leaf construction. Door Hinges have been designed specifically for application in spraybooths and are made through aluminium extrusion in a white powder-coated finish, white plastic cover plates then cover the fixing bolts to complete the look of the hinge. A single individual fully enclosed locking mechanisms allows the doors to be locked internally and prevent main doors being opened during the spraying process. The door frame has a white powder-coated finish and a built-in rubber compression seal, each door has a large full-length glass viewing panel framed in aluminium increasing internal booth visibility.
Personnel DoorA second personnel door can be fitted to any wall panel, generally to the rear of the cabin to provide a safe fire escape route. The door is fitted within its own white powder coated frame complete with self-closer, dictators, full-length viewing window, extruded aluminium hinges and rubber compression seals.
Control PanelThe control panel is fitted with variable speed drives to electronically balance the cabin pressure and provides the operator with simple selection for spray & bake modes, automatic bake timer & cool-down facility, lighting control, temperature controller readout for spray and bake cycles, magnehelic pressure monitoring with positive pressure alarm, emergency pressure alarm and shutdown.
Inverter Variable Speed DrivesAll Todd Engineering spraybooths are fitted with Inverter variable speed drives to electronically balanced cabin pressure, this is achieved by controlling the fan speeds using the inverters. This method of control is beneficial in maximising the energy efficiency of the spraybooth by only running the fans the speed required by the process. The inverters also increase the life expectancy and reduce maintenance of all associated components including the motor, driveshafts, and bearings through controlled acceleration and deceleration of the motors, this also eliminates electrical surges as the spraybooth is started.
