[FKVN-A125-999-A] How to Develop a Spray Booth

게시자: Songyi Han, 2017. 8. 3. 오후 6:48
Overspray is a major challenge in the shipping industry as excess paint can blow onto an unintended area. An overspray of up to 25% can be quite common with significant impact on the environment. For example, overspray from 1,000 kilos of paint required for painting one side of a ship can create 200 kilos of fine colorful dust. While this might not be an issue in a shipyard, it’s a massive problem when it’s windy and the shipyard is in the middle of a large cosmopolitan city.

Watch this 20-minute presentation by Maarten Groothoff from HEC who was contracted by Braspenning Coatings to design a painting booth that overcame the challenge of overspray. Using FloEFD computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, Mr. Groothoff gained valuable insight into the workings of the existing painting booth prototype and with the help of simulation fine-tuned the design to eliminate overspray.
