Preparation Equipment

An excellent finish requires excellent preparation, that's why at the Doug Marshall Auto Body Shop we utilize the Duster 3000 Downdraft Prep Station.  The Duster 3000 Downdraft is a prep station designed and engineered to remove airborne contaminants found in dust when sanding old paint, metal and fillers. Keeping the preparation environment as clean as possible is a key step in the highest quality automotive paint refinishing process.

DOWNDRAFT 3000 OPERATION
  • Positive airflow discharged from the top of machine creates a negative pressure “capture” zone at base of unit.
  • Dirty air is drawn in through the three intake openings at floor level.
  • Contaminated air is drawn through the four stage filters and cleaned down to 3 microns.
  • 495% of the clean air is discharged through the black discharge diffuser located on the elbow of the plenum creating the mushroom airflow affect.
  • The remaining 5% is discharged from the underside and along entire length of plenum.
  • Mushroom airflow pattern created will effectively clean up to 5000 sq ft floor area.
  • Air is continuously re-circulated at over 3000cfm.

Paint Booth

At the Doug Marshall Body Shop we utilize a Devilbiss downdraft paint booth with the Smart Cure paint curing system.  This style of booth is used in high production automotive refinishing where a high quality "Class A" finish is required.  In the downdraft booth, the air flow is from the overhead inlet plenum, which is fitted with high quality filters to remove any potential inbound dust or contamination, and moves down towards the building floor.  The building floor has a sunken pit to accept the exhaust. A bar-type grating is laid over the pit opening.  Downdraft booths have overhead, filtered input plenums. A filter plenum is used in conjunction with a heated air make-up unit. This is considered a must for a clean paint job.

The graphic above shows a re-circulating system. During the spray cycle, fresh air is pulled into the air system, heated,  then filtered and 100% exhausted.  During the bake cycle, once the air has passed through the working chamber, 90% of the air is pulled through filters and back to the air make up unit. There it is combined with 10% fresh new air, reheated and returned to the working chamber. The 10% air not returned to the air make up unit is filtered and exhausted directly into the atmosphere through ducting.
