Paint Pockets: The Most Efficient Exhaust Filters on the Market

The unique, diamond, design of Paint Pockets arrestor filters holds up to five times more than other filters, keeping overspray out of your exhaust stack and booth floor.  Three dimensional pockets double the filter's surface area, cutting filter changes by up to 80 percent!  Fewer filter changes means less waste and less time wasted changing filters that could be used for production.

Paint Pockets are not only more economically viable, they are also friendlier to the environment than other comparable filters.  Paint Pockets' 99.84% arrestance efficiency means only 0.16% of the overspray actually penetrates the filter.

Technical Specifications:

Overall Arrestance Efficiency:99.84%
Fractional Arrestance Efficiency 
20 microns100.0%
10 microns99.8%
5 microns84.5%
2.5 microns4.2%

Clemco Cool Air Tube.


As summer months approach, operator safety means staying cool.  With temperatures in South Texas reaching upwards of 115 degrees, the Clemco Cool Air Tube is more a necessity than a luxury.

Placed between the respirator and supply air line, the Clemco Cool Air Tube is able to produce a continuous, comfortable air stream, cooling the air up to 50 degrees cooler than the outdoor climate.  It's aluminum body makes it more durable than comparable devices on the market.  The knob cannot be fully closed, ensuring the operator always has air being supplied to the respirator.  The bulit on heat shield protects the operator from warm exhausts (a byproduct of cool air production).


Advantages



  • Increases productivity by keeping blast operator cool and comfortable in hot weather
  • Durable construction
  • Lightweight comfort system maintains NIOSH approval

Certifications and Approvals

The Cool Air Tube is approved by NIOSH for use only with Clemco Apollo HP high-pressure Type CE supplied-air
respirators (not for use with low-pressure respirators).

The Cool Air Tube is one component of a NIOSH-approved system; use of counterfeit parts voids the NIOSH approval.

To maintain NIOSH approval, use only genuine Clemco Apollo replacement parts.

Binks Pressure Pots

Pressure feed containers, or pressure pots/tanks, are used for a variety of coatings and, when used properly, are cost effective way to spray jobs that require higher volumes than a typical cup gun.  When choosing a pressure pot, there are many factors to take into consideration.  Should you go stainless steel or galvanized?  Do you need an agitator?  What capacity pot should you get?  Should you get a dual regulated or single regulated pot?  These are all questions the professionals at Air Equipment and Repair can help you answer to ensure you and your business get the proper equipment for your specific needs.

Pressure Pot Capacity

Binks pressure pots come in a wide variety of sizes, ranging from 2 quarts to 15 gallons.  What size pressure pot you will need varies due to a few key factors.  How large of a volume are you spraying?  What is the "pot life" of your material?  And, finally, what is most affordable for you and your business?

Volume

The volume of material you're looking to move or even the surface area you're looking to spray plays a huge factor in determining what size pressure pot is right for you.  However, surface area and volume do not always correlate with one another.  For instance, if you're spraying a smaller surface area at a large volume, such as fabricated pipes or valves, and you're doing so in a contained booth, a viable option may be a 5-10 gallon pressure pot to reduce down time from mixing paint and filling the tank.  Conversely, if you're in a yard coating oilfield pipeline, a 2.8 gallon pot which is easier to move about might work better for you.  Knowing specifics on volume, surface area, location, etc. plays an important role in which pressure pot a customer will need for a job.  This is why we always recommend calling us and giving specifics on your job to ensure you get the right equipment for the job.

Pot Life

Pot life could be the most important information to know about your material.  The pot life, in short, is how long your material can be applied in liquid form before hardening.  Some coatings, such as stains and lacquers, have a longer pot life than enamels or two part epoxies which can have a pot life as short as 30 minutes, depending on the outdoor temperature.  Obviously, pot life is important in choosing your pressure pot because if you're material has a short pot life, you would not want to use a large vessel to ensure your material does not harden inside before coating can be applied.

Affordability

As with mostly everything in business, the pressure pot that's right for you could very well come down to money.  We understand that every dollar matters to our customers which is why we never recommend anything that we don't think you need to get your job done properly.

Galvanized Vs Stainless Steel 

The noticeable difference between galvanized and stainless steel pressure tanks right off the bat is price.  Stainless steel paint pots can be quite a bit more expensive than galvanized pots but can also be necessary in some cases.  If you are needing to spray a highly corrosive material, a stainless steel paint pot is a necessity.  Furthermore, if you are in an outside environment that can have harsh humidity, it's not a necessity to use a stainless steel pot but can greatly increase the longevity of your pressure pot.  Talking with one of the experts at Air Equipment can help you decide whether you need a galvanized or stainless steel pressure pot.

Single/Dual Regulated and Attached Agitator

This is usually the first question we ask customers who call in looking for a pressure pot, "do you need a single or dual regulator and does it need to be agitated?"  The answer to this question is found a few ways.  First, does it need to have one or two regulators?  On a dual regulated pot, the first regulator regulates the pressure of the pot and the second regulates the air going to your gun.  It's never a bad idea to have two regulators so you can ensure you're not getting to much air pressure at the gun.  Some guns, like the Binks 2100, have an air meter at the air inlet that regulates the air flow.  However, most of these do not have a gauge so its really just an eye test for the operator.  

Does your pot need to be agitated?  This is dependent on your material.  If you are using a material that needs to be constantly mixed, an agitator is necessary.

Finding the perfect pressure pot for you and your business can be a daunting task.  Fortunately, for you, the experts at Air Equipment are here to help you pin point your exact needs based on application, climate, and price range.
