Controlled powder spray is applied to products by the application equipment. Oversprayed powder is collected by extraction ductwork, typically located in the floor of the booth enclosure. The booth enclosure is fabricated of high strength white PVC material. Double wall sandwich construction, with an air gap reduces static charge of the remaining powder keeping the walls, ceilings and floor clear of high powder accumulation.
Purpose designed ductwork connects the booth to the high efficiency cyclone. The trapezoidal configuration ensures the highest efficiency in powder reclaimation. In spray to reclaim operations, a minute volume of powder fines is purged from the incoming powder air mixture and ducted to the Absolute filter, where it is collected for waste disposal.
When in reclaim mode, the 97% efficient cyclone returns usable powder to the color kitchen via the integral parastaltic powder feed pump module. The cyclone and extraction duct are designed to be self-cleaning, further reducing the need for operator maintenance during routine color changes.
