High Efficiency spray booth Air Filters

June 23, 2006
May, 2006, Glendale Heights - Binks announces its new line of High Efficient spray booth Air Filters (AF HE) for industrial finishing. Appropriate for all general industrial applications, the Binks AF HE filters provide "two-in-one" performance, with a backing behind two layers to absorb 99.81% of all errant spray emitted. This compares with standard filter efficiency of only 98.1%, and offers significant cost savings and a cleaner environment. "The difference between 98.1% and 99.81% efficiency rating translates into major cost savings related to filter changes and associated labor," said Mark Foster, Sales & Marketing Manager, ITW Industrial Finishing. "Initial testing has shown that the Binks new AF HE Filters can potentially save finishers hundreds of thousands of dollars per year due to dramatically reduced number of spray booth filter changes. In one instance, filter changes actually dropped from 120 per week to less than four. Expected annual savings in this case will exceed $200,000. The Binks Spray Booth Air Filters offer:
  • Three-to-five times more overspray holding capacity than most filters
  • Panel sizes of 20" x 20", 20" x 25" and blanket sizes of 3' x 30'
  • Ease of installation and change-outs
  • Compatibility with a wide range of coatings
  • User and environmentally friendly operation
  • Significant cost-savings potential through dramatically reduced filter changes

Binks pioneered the development of liquid spray finishing technology over 100 years ago and continues to set the standards for industrial spray finishing.
