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.
Anyone in the spray booth industry will know that a high quality dust extraction system is one of the most important investments you can make. Even outside our industry, trades people, general DIYers, woodworkers, etc – insist that dust extraction is vital to the completion of work and ongoing productivity.
A working environment free from dust and other airborne particles is essential for your health. This article will look at why dust extraction is so important and how exactly it works. Take a look.
Dust extraction is so important to workshops and industrial spaces for many reasons.
Dust extraction systems can be categorised into two groups: High Extract Volume, Low Pressure (HVLP) and Low Extract Volume, High Pressure (LVHP). While both systems perform essentially the same function, they operate using opposing physics for different purposes.
In the case of Junair Spraybooths and Minden (our dust extraction partner), the key to understanding how dust extraction works is found in the combination of both technologies. The dust extraction solutions provided by Minden are high velocity. What high velocity means in this context is that dust etc is captured right at the point of process. They work more aggressively but in concentrated areas; Junair’s dust extraction is for a more widespread use.
Ultimately, the ideal solution is a combination of both; capture as much as you can at the point of process with Minden’s dust extraction and then remove any remaining contaminants with Junair dust extraction.
Whichever sector you’re in, dust extraction is a vital component of your overall workshop. Be it automotive, industrial, commercial or aerospace, both your health and the quality of your paint finish depends on sufficient dust extraction methods.
In the realm of industrial manufacturing, where precision and efficiency are paramount, the performance of machinery is crucial. This holds especially true for paint finishing and powder coating equipment, including booths and ovens. While the focus often centres on the application equipment, such as spray guns and pumps, the unsung heroes of these processes are […]

Energy bills continue to be volatile across the UK and with government subsidies beginning to end, many companies are looking for ways to cut down on energy. If you combine this with the fact that many businesses are becoming more environmentally conscious for ethical and financial reasons, with grants on offer to make businesses greener, […]
Powder coating is a popular finishing process used in many industries, such as automotive, aerospace, and furniture manufacturing. It involves the application of a fine powder material onto a surface. This powder material is then heated and cured to form a durable and attractive coating. Powder coating facilities often face challenges when it comes to […]
Automation is becoming more prevalent as technology advances and is one of the areas that is now increasingly accessible to businesses. 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 […]
