What Does Spray Booth Mean?

A spray booth is a specially designed enclosure used to house spray equipment and isolate expelled vapor that is generated during a spray application process. Spray processes are used to apply corrosion preventative coatings to a metallic surface. Spray booths are typically intrinsically safe and built to be fire and explosion proof.

Corrosionpedia Explains Spray Booth

A spray booth is typically used when it is impractical to conduct surface preparation or coating activities outdoors or in an unprotected indoor area. This can be due to several factors such as inadequate weather or atmospheric conditions, environmental hazards associated with the coating to be applied, worker preference, temperature regulation and vapor confinement.

For example, a pipe to be protected with a coating application may be located in sub-zero temperatures. Such conditions may not be conducive for workers to perform coating activities. In addition, some coatings may be reactive, freeze, vaporize or even liquify at such temperatures. Therefore, applying the coating in a temperature regulated spray booth enclosure is a viable solution.
