Using clean rooms and air showers to banish contaminants from your clothes, powder line, and finish
This article discusses the need for clean rooms [also known as environmental rooms, powder rooms, and application rooms, depending on critical need] to keep contaminates from your powder coating system and, ultimately, your finish.
It details how contaminates infiltrate the powder coating application areas and, to that end, suggests using an air shower to blow contaminates such as lint from employees' clothes before they enter the application area. The article then defines air showers, talks about their history, and explains exactly how and why they blow lint and dirt from clothes. 199703-37.txt
