Junair Install New Commercial Spraybooths for Plaxton in Scarborough

Junair Spraybooths has recently installed two new state-of-the-art, energy efficient commercial spraybooths for Plaxton, part of the Alexander Dennis Limited group, the UK’s largest bus and coach builder.

Plaxton have over a 100 years’ experience in building coaches and buses. Their coach range includes, Cheetah xl, Leopard, Panther, Elite and Elite i. From their state of the art facilities in Scarborough, they produce their product range which has made the Plaxton name synonymous with all that’s best in coaching. Their bus range includes Enviro single and double deck buses, including a hybrid version.

The factory in Scarborough has recently undergone a significant amount of investment in order to accommodate the larger buses and coaches that Plaxton now manufacture.

Junair Spraybooths and Alexander Dennis (Plaxton) have formed a long term relationship stretching back a number years which has already seen two Junair commercial spraybooths installed at the same site in Scarborough. The latest additions takes their total number of Junair spraybooths to four.

Bigger Spraybooths to Accommodate Larger Coaches

Of the two new spraybooths installed, the bigger measures 18m (L) x 5.2m (W) x 5.5m (H) in order to accommodate large coaches and double decker buses, two 35,000m3/hr air handling units have been fitted in order to get optimum airflow in such a large unit. High, mid and low level lighting has been incorporated to provide excellent visibility within the spraybooth. Two pneumatic access platforms have been installed which operate at each side of the spraybooth and provides a safe and productive solution when painting high sided vehicles.

The smaller of the spraybooths has been designed to accommodate individual panels and components and measures 9.2m (L) x 4m (W) x 3m (H). This unit is powered by a single 35,000m3/hr air handling unit.

Jason Douglas, Sales Director, Junair Spraybooths comments “In order to decrease the production times and provide an even temperature within the spraybooths, both have been fitted with our award winning patented QADs, this system is an auxiliary air movement system that has been designed to accelerate the air movement from the corners and the centre of the cabin. Due to the size of the larger spraybooth we have installed 16 QADs towers to get full product coverage. Not only does this system speed up drying times it also drastically reduces the energy costs associated with running a spraybooth.”

Energy Efficient Commercial Spraybooths

For increased energy saving both the spraybooths are fitted with a fuel saver mode which automatically changes the air handling plant to recirculation during idle and flash off modes. Variable speed drives have also be fitted, this system varies the airflow volume to suit the process.

Walter Schneider of Plaxton comments “We are extremely pleased with the finished result, we now have the capability to produce larger coaches due to increased size of the spraybooths, and in multiple colour schemes due to the reduced paint drying times. We have also seen a reduction in energy costs due to the energy efficient technology fitted to the spraybooths.”
