We took the existing 12'X20' shop and built a wall seperating the inside into two 10'X12' rooms....I built a intake filter box to the left of the door that has four 20" sections that hold several filters in each section....my home furnace as well as the intake and exhaust filters will all be the same 20"X20" filter size.
The exhaust system will be constructed on the wall opposite of the intake filters.....my plans are to have two towers of filters running up each corner of the room....these will be powered by an old household style furnace fan that can move 2200 cfm on high speed....I have used that fan for a couple of years and it works very well....i'm anxious to see how well it will work in this configuration....if need be i'll add a second fan and double the exhaust capacity.....the fan will be mounted on the outside of the shop as it was previously.
As of this afternoon i'm still applying drywall mud, so I just stood a couple of filters in the corners of the room so you'll have an idea of what i'm going for......i'll post more pics as I go if ya'll are interested?
I know this is overkill for most of you unless your into production painting lures, but I thought you might like to see it anyway.....this will work great for my motorcycle and helmet art and will allow me to shoot basecoats and clearcoat with my full size paint gun and not worry about overspray or trash getting in my clear anymore.
Thanks for looking and i'd love to hear your comments.
