Paint booth filters require changing regularly to prevent the loss of airflow due to clogged filters. This increases the strain and work of the fan motor and increases energy costs. Air filters with synthetic HEPA media have lower resistance for capturing the fumes of the paint spray. Charged micro fibers draw in the residue from the circulating air to provide clean air.

Fiberglass filters are rated at a higher resistance than the synthetic non-fiberglass media. The efficiency rating for the synthetic HEPA is 99.97 percent capture. The smallest size of particulate captured is 0.1 micron. This is important for capturing the residue of paint in the air. An activated charcoal or carbon filter is a great addition to any paint booth filter to reduce the accumulation of odors.

All Sizes of Paint Booth Filters

Paint booth filters are available in standard filter sizes or they can be customized for any unit. It is easy to locate a supplier with the option to order in bulk at a discount. Since paint filters need to be changed so frequently to work efficiently, it is a good idea to have an abundant supply on hand. This eliminates the possibility of the need to reduce or stop the workload while waiting on new filters to arrive.

If you have questions or concerns about getting the filter for your home or place of business, it is easy to locate the answers online. Many sites have questionnaires to guide you to the best filter. Guidelines clearly establish which filters are best suited for a paint booth environment. Suppliers for paint booth filters can suggest the thickness and the media that you need to provide clean, healthy air at all times. It is necessary to have a continual fan circulating the air to keep the contaminants to a minimum.
