FALCON & RAPTOR

The fully-electric spray booths with infrared curing

Falcon & Raptor are the most energy efficient and advanced infrared spray booths available. They use a fully-electric heating system and Infrared curing coupled with high airflows and advanced control system to provide the lowest running costs and fastest production times. Raptor has all of Falcon’s features and adds even more infra-red lamps, the setting system, fluorescent tubes, stainless steel finish and 4-leaf fully glazed entrance doors as standard.

The Flacon & Raptor spray booths save time and money compared to a traditional Oil or Gas fired spraybooth for every job, cutting curing time and energy consumption significantly, all whilst providing top of the range airflows.

The “Setting System” (Optional for the Falcon) splits the infrared spray booth into discrete zones which can be indpendently used, diverting all the air to one part of the cabin, further reducing running costs for smaller jobs such as when you are painting a wing.

Eurotecno also supply a large range of Automotive spray booths with traditional oil and gas fired heating and curing.

RAPTOR Infrared spray booth
1

Integrated Infra-Red lamps. Infra-red curing is quicker and far more energy efficient than gas or oil fired burners. The infra red curing system can be separated into zones, further improving efficiency as only the area you are working in needs to be heated. Alternatively the entire vehicle can be cured via infra-red.

2

The infra-red lamps are protected by stainless steel covers which automatically open for the curing cycle and close for spraying.

3

Excellent illumination with colour matched lighting and flicker free high frequency electronic ballasts.

4

The Raptor has a “SETTING” system that separates the booth area into zones so that you can divert all the air to the part of the booth that you are working in, saving energy as you don’t need to power and heat the entire booth and increasing the performance of that zone.

5

Floor grids for full downdraught airflows, via excavated pits or fully gridded raised base.

The “SETTING” system zones the floor to divert the airflows into just the area you are working in, for example to just paint a wing.

6

Integrated Infra-Red lamps. Infra-red curing is quicker and far more energy efficient than gas or oil fired burners. The infra red curing system can be separated into zones, further improving efficiency as only the area you are working in needs to be heated. Alternatively the entire vehicle can be cured with all zones being utilised.

Electric heater battery. The Raptor is fully electric and uses the electric heater and infra red curing for the lowest running costs with excellent performance and high airflows.

Infrared Curing

Up to eight rows of infrared lamps provide the fastest and most efficient curing. Only the lamps in the zone required are used, further reducing running costs.

The infrared lamps have short, medium and long wave ranges allowing for a  range of materials to be cured. This allows you to spray and cure vehicles with a mixture of materials easily with different programmes available via the touch screen control panel.

Energy Saving

The Falcon & Raptor infrared spray booth models include many energy saving features as standard to make them the most energy efficient available.

The input air is pre-heated by heat recuperating ducting (via an integral heat exchanger) to reclaim the heat being expelled. From there it is enters the input power group which has a highly efficient electric heat exchanger. No gas or oil burners are required.

A sophisticated control system drives inverters to speed control the centrifugal ventilator fans via direct-drive motors. The system can detect when the operator is spraying and reduces the power when no spraying is taking place, resulting in significant energy saving.

The SETTING system creates zones in the spray booth. This allows the operator to shut down the parts of the booth that are not being used, when spraying a wing for example, which then only requires a fraction of the energy. This saves a significant amount of energy without compromising the performance of the booth – it simply provides the airflows and curing to just the areas it is needed.

Control System

The easy to use control panel belies the sophisticated system that controls the most efficient infrared spray booth available. A touch screen control panel give unparalleled control over each stage of the spraying and baking phases. The amount of energy used is displayed, allowing for precise running costs to be calculated for each job and can be graphed on the display.

The control panel monitors the panel temperature of the vehicle as well as air temperature.

Automatic pressure control is also built-in, keeping the airflows constant and adjusting fan speeds to compensate as the filters do their job keeping the air dust-free.

Zoning

The infra-red curing system allows you to choose which zone you wish to cure for when only a part of the vehicle requires curing – when repairing a single wing for example. Only the infra-red lamps in that zone are then switched on allowing for even greater energy savings.

The setting system* also allows the airflows to be zoned via an active ceiling, diverting all of the airflows into whichever zone you wish. The air is then shut off to the rest of the spray booth and the fan speeds can be significantly reduced accordingly. The airflows in the active zone can also be boosted if required.

This system further increases the efficiency and flexibility of the spray booth and reduces running costs significantly.

*The Setting system is available on the Falcon infrared spray booth as an optional extra.
