Arrests Virtually All Overspray
Independent laboratory test reports confirm Paint Pockets excels at capturing the very small 2.5 to 10 micron particles that typify overspray produced in most spray finishing operations. The arrestor effectively captures and retains these particles, preventing them from contaminating downstream equipment. Paint Pockets removes far more particles from the booth exhaust than any other high performance, single-stage overspray arrestor.
Its 99.84% arrestance efficiency means only 0.16% of the overspray actually penetrates the arrestor. At first glance, Filter X, a competitive arrestor, with a 99.5% overall arrestance efficiency might seem comparable. In reality though, three times as much overspray penetrates Filter X.
More importantly, Paint Pockets captures more of the smaller particulates than any other single-stage arrestor. The Fractional Arrestance Efficiency chart shows Paint Pockets arrests smaller overspray particulates that penetrate other arrestors.
Stable Air Flow
Its unique pockets enable Paint Pockets to accumulate significant quantities of overspray before it begins to noticeable restrict booth airflow. This feature permits you to “tune” your entire finishing process for maximum transfer efficiency and, more importantly, to operate in the optimum efficiency zone. Increased transfer efficiency means more parts coated per quantity sprayed and longer intervals between filter changes. A higher percentage of the finish is coating parts instead of the arrestors.
Paint Pockets now only removes overspray from your booth’s exhaust air stream, its pockets assist in retaining overspray with the arrestor. Reduced run-off means less booth floor clean-up and quicker filter changes.
You get up to an 80% reduction in filter changes, a corresponding reduction in waste disposal costs, more than a 50% reduction in backsection and exhaust stack cleanouts, significantly less runoff, and improved transfer efficiency – all in an easy-to-change, user-friendly, polyester filter.
Paint Pockets is the most effective and most economical way to manage the overspray produced by common coatings including medium and high solids paints, powder coatings, water reduced paints, plural component coatings, stains, and adhesives.
Paint Pockets overspray arrestor is the best single-stage arrestor technology currently available for production spray booths. It is the lowest total cost solution for responsible overspray management.
