Considerations when buying a powder coating oven
For businesses operating in sectors like automotive and manufacturing, the prospect of establishing an in-house powder coating facility presents a compelling opportunity.
Junair Spraybooths has been working closely with the team at Lookers Blackburn to install a sustainable spraybooth. This unique idea sees their spray booths running on biomass together with more traditional energy sources. The biomass renewable energy works automatically, powering the booth on both spray and bake mode. The spraybooth cycle remains unchanged, the only noticeable difference being that to the bottom line.
Biomass energy is produced when wood waste, or other waste, is burnt to produce heat energy in various forms. Technology has advanced to the point that emissions from burning biomass in industrial facilities are less than emissions produced when using fossil fuels.
Jason Douglas, Sales Director at Junair Spraybooths says, “We were delighted to be involved in the development of the biomass booth. It was a really exciting project, not only have Lookers achieved what all businesses are striving for – to reduce their overheads, but we’ve also managed to reduce the carbon footprint and save energy in the process. It’s a novel system and I look forward to installing more of these sustainable spraybooths in the future.”
Nigel McMinn Managing Director, Lookers PLC “Lookers is a progressive, environmentally-conscious business, we’re always looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and to save energy in the most reliable and efficient way. We’re already reaping the benefits of the Biomass Booth and are looking to replicate this elsewhere across our UK network.”
This innovation not only enhances profits through reduced energy overheads but reduces carbon and CO2 emissions. As a result of this technology Lookers Blackburn is the first in the UK to become carbon neutral.

Having automatic processes in place has several advantages for businesses, it increases efficiency, improves accuracy and frees up employee time. However, one of the most underrated advantages of automation is how much money it […]
Fusion bonded epoxy powder coating (FBE) is a type of coating that is applied to the surface of a material as a dry powder. The powder is made up of small particles of epoxy resin and a hardening agent. The coating is applied to the surface of the material using a process called electrostatic spray […]
When first powder coating, it’s common for businesses to outsource their finishing operations. As bringing the process in-house can often require further staff, training and a larger upfront cost in terms of buying the machinery and equipment to ensure the process is carried out to a high standard. Business owners often outsource powder coating for […]
