    The charcoal filters should be changed once every 6 months, or sooner if the exhaust airflow starts to become noticeably more odorous. The intake filters should be change much more frequently: it does depend on volume of usage, but it is time to change it when it becomes visably contaminated.

    Comes with instructions for ordering replacement filters direct from the manufacturer.

    As for the motors in the A2 and A3 gloobooths; the A2 has a much larger, and quieter, motor. The fan velocity of the A2 motor is 1850 FPM (foot per minute) and the A3 is 900 FPM. However, the surface area of the filters reduces the spread of the suction, and because the surface area of the A2 is larger than the A3, the resulting "face velocity" (suction) is different: on the A2, it is 60 FPM and on the A3 it is 80 FPM. Therefore, the A3 has slightly more suction but can handle a smaller volume of air than the A2. The operator will need to decide what size booth they need according to the size of the item they are spraying.

    Simair Gloo-booths and Unibooths are designed to protect the health and safety of the user by minimising the inhalation of dangerous fumes, and explosion or fire risk in recognition of the flammable nature of many of the solvents used in spray application. To guard against overheating and electrical sparking, the fan motors are thermally protected and UL approved. The machines have been designed to meet the requirements of EN60950 Low Voltage Directive.

    During operation, typical air flow rates within the Gloo booth has been measured at 370m3/hr. Assuming the maximum hazard, i.e., the lower explosion limit of 1.9% for Butane, in order to reach this limit under operating conditions at least 150 spray cans would need to be discharged simultaneously. This is not likely, and therefore no realistic flammability or explosion hazard is perceived. (Ref: Flammability Hazard Assessment report attached).

    Risk assessment is vital when deciding where to site the booth and in determining what additional measures if any need to be taken to stay within OSHA PELs’. As to what those measures are, that would depend on the immediate environment, the volume of use, perhaps even the number of Gloobooths sited in the same classroom. It is strongly recommended that the booth is not positioned near an area of frequent pedestrian traffic, for example near a doorway, as there is a risk this can interfere with airflow and diminish the effectiveness of the extractor fan. We would encourage installing the machine near an exterior wall and we would recommend venting the fumes away from the machine by use of an air ducting kit. Air-flow testing equipment and particulate testing would help determine the extent of the measures that need be taken.
