Layout

The ‘Poseidon’ is a downdraught type spraybooth which features a fully filtered floor area, the downdraught design ensures all overspray and dirt is pulled immediately to floor level and held there during the spraying process, this eliminates overspray contaminating other areas of the paintwork and ensures a perfect finish. The full-size ceiling air input plenum helps facilitate this design by producing an even through flow of heated air that completely envelops the vehicle, meaning all areas of the car including sills are heated to the required panel temperature evenly for rapid curing.

Construction

The spraybooth cabin is constructed using double skinned rockwool insulated panels with a white polyester finish both internally and externally. Panel sections are joined with bright aluminium sections which give a seamless and attractive finish that takes away the exposed joints that would otherwise be filled with a sealant

Performance

The spraybooth plant work is fitted with two 7.5kW direct drive aerofoil backwards curved centrifugal fans to achieve the design airflow rate of 30000m³/hr. This provides a rate of 7 air changes per minute within the cabin, with extracted air being exhausted to the atmosphere. The extraction system is fitted with two stage filtration incorporating 50mm EU2 paint stop filter and EU3 blue pre-filter; this ensures that emissions meet EPA requirements. Input air is filtered through high-quality EU5 filter media housed in the full ceiling plenum, which captures contaminants down to 10 microns.

Lighting

Todd 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 Cycle

Fresh 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.

Heating

The spraybooth is fitted with a state of the art direct-fired modulating gas/LPG premix burner with an output of 220kW or 750,000Btu’s/hr; this allows input air to be rapidly heated to the pre-set temperature on the control panel, cabin temperature is then held within +/- 1 degree. Modulation is achieved using integrated variable speed drive technology for greater control and efficiency of the heating plant.

Noise Levels

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

Main Doors

The main vehicle entry doors are a three-leaf construction that opens in a concertina fashion which saves space on the doors overall opening distance. 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. Two individual locking mechanisms allow one single leaf door to be used as a second personnel door; this is fitted with a self-closer and dictators to provide a good seal. 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 Door

A 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 Panel

The Spraybooth control system uses the latest technology available to give the operator intelligent and user-friendly control of all processes. Simple push-button controls are used for cycle selection and lighting, meaning in most cases the booth can be controlled with one touch of a button. The intelligent programming of the PLC based system monitors and adjusts cabin pressure and temperature to suit and displays the current spraybooth status on a 3.5” full colour TFT Touchscreen display. Separate controllers for temperature and cycle time duration are fully adjustable by the operator and gives a clear indication of set points, current temperature and remaining process time.

Inverter Variable Speed Drives

All 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.
