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.
Like all businesses with any number of overheads, you’re likely keen to find new ways to reduce your operational costs and, ultimately, be a little greener in the process. We believe that our spray booths’ sophisticated Fuel Saver mode allows you to do just that, and more.
Here is how your business and your spray booths could benefit from the Fuel Saver mode; a unique application created and patented by the team at Junair Spraybooths.
It’s simple, really. Because we know that the majority of the energy used up by a spray booth goes on heating up external air inside the cabin (it needs to be 22°C), we’ve found a way to conserve energy when nothing is being sprayed – for example, in idle and flash off modes.
Since nothing is being sprayed, the cabin doesn’t require such a precise heat. So, the Fuel Saver mode automatically recirculates the air rather than pumping new heated
air into the cabin. You’ll be happy to hear that Fuel Saver mode requires no operator input and can be left to function on its own.
During those idle times, your spray booth will know when to recirculate the air (essentially putting your cabin on ‘standby’). It will kick back into action as usual as soon as your spray resumes. We’ve also included safety interlocks to guarantee full safety.
Not only will this reduce your energy costs (thus adding value to your whole business output), there are other benefits to the Fuel Saver modes:
Because we’re always looking for new ways to boost and bolster the efficiency of your business, we’ve written a vast range of content to answer any and all spray booth questions you might have. Visit the blog to see them all.

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 […]
