RE: Two separate questions - P2 Videos and Paint Booth Filters




	Re-usable paint booth filters are showing good success for coating
operation waste filter reduction.  One company reported that they work
better with coatings that dry more quickly, so a little experimentation may
be needed.  Initial investment costs are a little high but the filters
reportedly last for 10 to 15 years.

Subject: Two separate questions - P2 Videos and Paint Booth Filters 


Question 1
I am looking for any and all current P2 Videos, for client educational
purposes. Have found nothing later than 1992 vintage. Does anyone know 
of any new P2 videos produced within the last 4 years?

Question 2
Disposal dilemma. 
Does anyone know of an efficient method for disposing of bulky & awkward
used
paint booth filters? There are several types apparently. The long flat
blanket-like filters, that clients roll up like jelly rolls, slide into
plastic drum liner bags and either stuff into 55 gallon drums for disposal
or
throw into 20 to 40 cu.yd,roll out bins for pick up. There are smaller pouch
filters attached to rectangular metal frames, which the client either
crushes
and stuffs into drums or cuts the fabric away from the frame, recycles the
frame and disposes the fabric as above. TCLP testing of filters may reveal
that they are non-hazardous in some cases. Either way the volume 
of waste created is disconcerting even with compacting technology. To see
these huge light weight wads of cotton batton type material stuffed into
steel drum is very frustrating indeed. They just has to be a better way!
Please help.
