The Todd Engineering Olympian 1000 series spray booth sets high standards in price and performance for the budget entry-level, new start-up and low throughput markets.

The Olympian’s low cost and streamlined installation make it a competitive and far less risky option versus the purchase of a second-hand spray booth.

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 and to be accessible for simple routine maintenance. The airflow design produces an excellent through-flow of air for the removal of paint overspray and vapours, without the need for excavation, floor grids, etc.

Layout

The Olympian booth is a rear extraction type spray booth that requires no additional groundworks before installation. The machine is constructed on a smooth, flat concrete base with an extraction chest at the rear and plant work situated on top. This design provides a front to rear, diagonally flowing tunnel of air which moves across the entire vehicle to carry away over-spray and fumes.

Construction

The spray booth cabin has a fire-resistance rating of 30 minutes and constructed using double skinned insulated panels with a white polyester finish internally and externally.

Performance

The plant work on the Olympian booth is fitted with two 3.0kW direct-drive bifurcated axial fans to achieve the design airflow rate of 14,000m3/hr. This airflow 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.

Lighting

Todd Engineering has developed a state-of-the-art LED lighting system specifically for use in their range of spray booths. These LED lights surpass the very highest standards required in the automotive refinishing sector, creating a superbly lit cabin with high level-light pods. The Pods are angled to reduce glare and shadowing. The state-of-the-art LED lighting system gives illumination levels in excess of +1800 lux through the use of high output LED SMD Chips designed to provide a colour temperature of 5000K @ 90CRI offering 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 created a flat panel of light. The light pods are finished with a frameless toughened glass cover and intumescent seal to separate electronics from the booth atmosphere.

Spraying Cycle

Fresh air is drawn from the atmosphere and heated to the required temperature. It then passes through EU5 ceiling filters into the booth and over the vehicle, as it passes it carries away paint over-spray & vapours. The air is extracted via a twin dry filter system and let out to the atmosphere. It is essential to use the recommended filters with regular changes; doing so will help 99% of pollutants can be captured.

Heating

The Olympian spray booth has 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 spray booth to recirculate air within the cabin to reach low bake temperature rapidly.

Noise Levels

Comfortable working cabin levels of between 70-75 dB, variable speed motors contribute to 50% lower dB outbreak levels.

Main Doors

The primary vehicle entry doors are two leaf construction. Door Hinges have been designed specifically for application in spray booths 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 allow the doors to be locked internally and prevent main doors opening during the spraying process. The door frame has a white powder-coated finish and a built-in rubber compression seal; each entry has a sizeable full-length glass viewing panel framed in aluminium increasing internal booth visibility.

Personnel Door

A second personnel door can be fitted to any wall panel; it is generally held 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 Panel

The control panel is fitted with variable speed drives to electronically balance the cabin pressure. The operator is provided with simple selection for spray and bake modes, automatic bake timer and 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 Drives

All of the Todd Engineering spray booths are fitted with inverter variable speed drives to an 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 spray booth by only running the fans the rate 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 spray booth is started.
