Aircraft Spray Booth
Aircraft & Helicopters are very specialized machieneries , either used for transportation of human movement , or carry goods or for combat.
An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air. It counters the force of gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines. Common examples of aircraft include airplanes.
Paint Booth Cost?
Rotorcraft, or rotary-wing aircraft, uses a spinning rotor with aerofoil section blades (a rotary wing) to provide lift. Types include helicopters, autogyros, and various hybrids such as gyrodynes and compound rotorcraft.
Helicopters have a rotor turned by an engine-driven shaft. The rotor pushes air downward to create lift. By tilting the rotor forward, the downward flow is tilted backward, producing thrust for forward flight. Some helicopters have more than one rotor and a few have rotors turned by gas jets at the tips.
The spray painting booths used for such complex machines are commonly called as aircraft spary booth or helicopter booths. Due to the flying speciality of aeroplanes in higher altitudes and clowdy weather , it is necessary that the paint used on the aircraft body is high performance type . Since most of the air planes are been manufactured in western part of the world or Europe , the high performance paints are also made in companies from these regions.
What is spray Booth ?
The aircraft paint booths are not as simple as the bus paint booths or railway spray booths , in fact these are extremely high tech booths . Our spray booth for airplanes consists of multiple exhaust cambers in groups at equidistant from one another , these is a very deep civil pit with air suction vents and sections connected to the spray booth exhaust chambers. Along with the exhaust system , there is are multiple sets of air circulation blowers which are then connected to plenum chamber of the paint booth.
The Plenum chambers & circulation blowers connected in such a way that the plenum is divided into 2 stages , the first stage has multiple air throttling dampers to have an accurate air velocities throughout the aircraft spray booth , the second stage is a much simple one with has long rows of ceiling filters placed adjacent to each other with short grills for the maintenance and replacement of the ceiling filters . The distributed air passes through the ceiling filters with a dust caring capacity of less than 5 micron level dust to avoid any paint failure in the paint booth due the external dust.This is the general arrangement & construction of the helicopter paint booth.
But there are some cirtical issues which need to delt more accurately . The air in the spray booth needs to be at a temperature of 20 deg and with humidity of 60 percent. There for these painting booths are also been added with a series of separate chiller , a humidifier unit & a de humidifier unit , to tackle the humidity and the temperature effect

Since the paints have to give a very high performance in all weather conditions & salty atmosphere , the application of the imported paints becomes very critical. The requirement of a specific temperature & humidity in the helicopter spray booths along with chillers and humidifiers leads to very high pricing of these paint booths , also since every region has different weather , relative humidity and these value constantly change every month so the running of these paint booths seems to be very expensive. Autocoat engineering with its counterpart has great solutions for our customers who are wanting to set up air craft booths or helicopter spray booths. Contact us for more in-depth designs and construction of such paint booths , we have also devised latest methods to have some savings in the energy consumption costs , thereby giving relief to our customers.
Autocoat Engineering is also supplied aircraft spray booths to some Indian government companies for the repair & revamping work of used Indian aeroplanes.The paint booths used here are much simplar than those paint booths used for the first time painting of the aircrafts. Our paint booths are crafted with special care keeping in mind final requirement of the customers and the local pollution law departments.
