RE: paint booths



Tammy,
 
        Massachusetts Air Quality Regulations (http://www.state.ma.us/dep/bwp/daqc/files/regs/7a.htm#03), specify requirements for spray paint booths.   Most "pre-fab" booths, such as ones manufactured by Binks or Devilbis (not an endorsement) meet the face and exit velocities.  However, stack height is a determining factor in what fan size is necessary to meet these requirements.   These regulations also specify coating formulations, type of spray guns, gun cleaner and particulate control.
 
Hope this helps
 
Keith

Subject: paint booths

Does anyone know where I can find EPA guidance on the ventilation systems of spray booths (e.g. recommended exit velocities, fan speed, etc.).  I found guidance from the Australian EPA, but I would like some "closer to home" guidance for a local cabinet maker/finisher.
