Spray Booths

Spray Booths Keep a Spray-booth on your desk or table work-area to suction in all hazardous fumes from all aerosal sprays, glues, adhesives, mediums etc... Even better, place your work inside the spray booth's work area (comes in a number of sizes) to insure no fumes or excess spray escape.

These spraybooths can work indoors. The internal filters will capture and protect you from the fumes. Our spray booths can also be used near a window, venting the fumes outdoors (the filters will last even longer this way.)

We sell a lot of these to very satisfied customers!



The Artograph Spray Booth System line consist of three attractive, cost-efficient spray booths specifically
designed to reduce the mess and hazards associated with using aerosol sprays, spray guns, and airbrushes. These three Professional and Hobby Spray Booth models, suited for the professional to the hobbyist, effectively collect
the overspray and reduce the fumes from adhesives, fixatives, finishes, or airbrush materials that soil the work area and contaminate the air.

Choosing a Spray Booth

You've made the decision to obtain a spray booth and need to know what to look for. The question to be answered first is, what are you going to spray? If your primary use is airbrush work with water-based dyes, you require good air flow and good particulate particulate removal, and odor reduction. Air flow is determined by the fan system and should be at least 100 feet per minute across the face of the booth. This is the recommended standard for industrial paint spray booths.

Particulate removal is determined by the density and thickness of the filter medium. By and large, all multiple filter systems do an adequate job of removing particulate.

Odor removal, however, is more difficult. Even if you have an electronic filter, the use of carbon in some form is still required to remove odors. The thickness of the filter, the form of the carbon, and the quality of the carbon are all factors to be balanced. What materials you plan to spray should determine the importance of the carbon in the system. If you are spraying adhesives, fixatives, or paints, you need a carbon filter. The odors from these three sprays are generally quite noxious. From a health standpoint, this is the area that deserves the most attention.

The last consideration is the balance of the system. Air flow should match the filters, and the filters should match the material being sprayed. Study the ingredients of the materials you currently use. If the ingredients are not easily collected by carbon, maybe a switch to another brand will improve your environment. In spraying acrylics, the carbon filter should be dense and deep because acrylic solvents have strong odors.

In a typical studio, the air quality may not be good even if spraying is not taking place (e.g. perhaps windows do not open), so many contaminants will remain in the environment. Open spraying of aerosols or airbrushes can greatly increase the amount of indoor pollution, and the spray booth will remove most of this contamination and significantly improve cleanliness.

In summary, there are three things a spray booth should do:
  • Have sufficient air flow to assure that the sprayed particles are drawn into the filter system.
  • Be able to filter almost 100% of the particles over 10 microns to assure a clean environment.
  • Have a carbon-type filter, preferably of activated carbon granules, to filter odors.

    Artograph Spray Booth FAQ’s

    How often do I have to change the filters? . . . the hood?
  • Pre-filter: About every 90 surface sprays. (When the pre-filter roll is depleted.)
  • Filter Pak: About every 3 to 4 months. (Usually every two rolls of pre-filters.)
  • Activated Carbon Filter: about every 6 months to a year (Usually every two-filter paks.)

    Replacement Hood: periodically or if it becomes damaged (More of a personal preference)

    What kinds of fans are used in your Spray Systems?
    The 2025 Spray System® has a backward-curved motorized impeller fan. This fan is also a thermally protected brushless AC fan.

    The 1520 & 1530 Spray Systems have a boxer brushless AC fan that is also thermally protected.

    Can I filter the over spray and odors out of doors?
    Yes, the 2025 system has an accessory exhaust adapter that can be attached to the back of the booth. The 1530 and 1520 have built in exhaust adapters. The over spray and odors can then be filtered out by attaching a standard 4" dryer hose to the exhaust adapter. (Maximum length of the dryer hose is 8 feet.)

    Seamless Spray Booth
    What is the benefit of a seamless spray booth?
    If you are in the market for a spray booth that is fairly easy to clean, you may want to consider a seamless booth. These booths are easy to maintain and clean. Keeping your spray booth clean should become a routine part of your work day. If you allow materials to build up too long your booth will only be harder to clean later.

    Spray Booth Maintenance
    How do you care for a spray booth?
    Just because you are using a spray booth, do not assume that you have eliminated all of o the hazards and dangers of fire. Many of the materials that are used in a spray booth are flammable and they can build up inside the booth. It is important that you keep the filters on your spray booth changed and that you keep your booth clean. Both of these steps can go far in cutting down on the buildup inside of the spray booth.

    Spray Booth Mechanics
    How do spray booths work?
    Spray booths have two functionalities in their design. The first is the filtering system. The filtering system collects over spray. The second is the fan. The fan provides the paint area with ventilation. There are many different models of spray booths to choose from -- from the professional models to the hobby/home user models. Regardless of the model, all good spray booths will have these two systems.

    Spray Booth Regulations
    When running a business, do I need to follow any regulations?
    If you have a professional art studio and you are planning to install a spray booth, you should check to see if you need a permit and if you have to adhere to specific regulations. Not only may you have to meet fire and OSHA regulations, but you may have to meet environmental rules in your area.

    Spray Booth Test
    Do I really need a spray booth?
    Many painters think they do not need a spray booth when they are working with an air brush. One way for artists to test whether they could benefit from a spray booth is to tie a white handkerchief over their noses and mouths at the beginning of the day. At the end of the day they can see just how much colors they would have inhaled. Inhaling pigments can be dangerous and air brush artists are encouraged to use a spray booth and protective gear.
