Continuous Burn-off Systems

Designed to remove a limited amount of cured hydrocarbon coatings from metal parts by turning combustible cured paint into smoke and ashes.

The Rapid Heat Transfer (RHT) is fast and cost effective, ideal for high volume rack and hook stripping. Speed, efficiency and cost savings make the GFS' RHT the smart choice for high-volume rack stripping applications. In as little as four to six minutes, the RHT removes paint from racks and hooks. The secret to it's amazing performance is high velocity manifolds and rapid heat transfer technology. Plus, the remarkable dual-pass in-line system which also means less energy usage, lower costs, and more available floor space.

How it works: Racks and hooks travel through a refractory-lined heated chamber, where air temperatures of 1000°F to 1200°F ignite the paint, turning it to ash. The hooks and racks are then conveyed to a washer where water rinses the ash off, and cools them.

To conserve resources, water is re-circulated through the system. An optional filter is available for removing excess ash from the water stream.

Batch Process Ovens

When resources are limited and floor space is at a premium, these ovens provide an economical solution for a variety of industrial processes, while offering diverse options for customization. Industrial applications include, but are not limited to, Drying, Curing, Baking and Pre-heating.

Convection Ovens

These modular factory-built convection type ovens operate at temperatures ranging from 100 degrees F up to 600 degrees F. Ovens can be heated with gas, fuel oil and electricity and are designed to move products through the heat zone using a variety of transport systems.

Recirculating Paint Booths

This unique system provides the means for recirculating air through a spray booth for both manual and automatic paint booths. This system also dramatically reduces the amount of exhausted air that will eventually be controlled by an abatement system.

High Quality Standards

The Recirculating Paint Spray Booth is designed to meet the requirements of OSHA, NFPA-33, and HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutants). NFPA-33 states: "A paint spray booth must provide adequate ventilation to control the concentration of flammable vapors below 25% of the lower explosive limit and it maintains the toxicity and permissible exposure limits below levels as stated in OSHA 1910.1000".

Design Performance and Benefits

This system dramatically reduces the amount of exhausted air. This is especially important if abatement is required by local authorities. In this case the air is rich in solvents and the volume sent to the abatement device is much lower. Abatement machinery is much more efficient when operating at higher concentrations of exhaust gas. Use of energy in paint booth is a serious concern in this era. Energy use is at a minimum when using a recirculation booth. At a recirculation ratio of 80:20% energy use is reduced by a factor of five. This is especially important when the booth is temperature and humidity controlled. Not only is energy use reduced greatly, but so is capital expense because the equipment (air handling and abatement) is also reduced in size.

Dust Collection Booths

Dust collection booths help to contain dust heavy operations which are often associated with sanding and grinding into a single workspace. Dust-laden air is pulled away from workers while filtered air is exhausted back into the workspace.

These booths are particularly well suited for filtering very fine particulates in large air volumes. The compact design of the unit also makes it a good in-plant unit collector because it saves valuable floor space while minimizing the required ductwork.

Heat Recovery Systems

As air is exhausted from process equipment, heat is lost as well. GFS' Heat Recovery System reclaims some of this heat that escapes with exhausted air, providing your business with measureable energy savings, resulting in lower operating costs.

Truck and Large Equipment Booths

Our spray booths feature a modular design which offers the economy of a standardized line of booths, while making them available in virtually unlimited sizes to fit a multitude of applications and finishing operations.

  • Energy-efficient components, shadow-free lighting, high efficiency heat systems and multiple configuration options allow for the perfect booth.
  • Custom designs are available and may include white pre-coated panels.
  • Ultra Booths: High-performance white pre-coated dual-skin panel downdraft booth
  • Galvanized Booths: Economical galvanized steel single-skin booths
  • Code Requirements: As fire, electrical, and building codes vary from one area to another, consult the local authority having jurisdiction before purchasing a spray booth. GFS Spray Booths comply with the requirements of the Uniform Fire Code (U.F.C. 45), International Fire Code and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 33 ) explosion relief requirements and (NFPA 86) air inside the booth is raised above ambient temperature, additional clearances may be required above or beside the booth.

Washer Booths

Designed for the secondary cleanup of burned-off racks, hooks, fixtures and parts. After the burn-off process, the load is transferred to the wash boothcart and rolled into the wash booth where ambient water is sprayed through nozzles to remove the loose ash from the burn-off process.

Multi-Stage Washers

Multi-Stage Surface Preparation Systems are utilized for metal and plastic substrates. These systems are used extensively to prepare surfaces prior to painting or to clean parts after machining or forming operations.

  • The number of stages and the design of a Washer System depends upon the customers finish specifications and the complexity of the parts. A Global Finishing Solutions Washer can be designed and customized as a spray, immersion or combination of both types.
  • Most basic Washer Systems include a chemical cleaning stage followed by a water rinse and seal rinse stages. Per specification requirements, the washer may include the addition of phosphate stages, additional rinse stages and deionized or surfactant final rinse stages.

Water Wash Booths

Water wash booths collect overspray using a constant stream/curtain of water where overspray particles are scrubbed from the air that the booth exhausts. While the water curtain collects most of the overspray, the section where the scrubbing action occurs is most important. Fixed baffles force the exhaust air to constantly change direction and, as this occurs, the water scrubs the particulates from the air or they simply fall into the water trough.

Water wash spray booths are ideal when using large quantities of coatings, usually more than 5 gallons per day per square foot of face area. These booths are available in any type of booth design small, large, open, closed, crossdraft, down draft, semi-down draft.
