Paint Pockets

Paint Pockets® is the best performing, single-stage overspray arrestor, bar none. Paint Pockets excels in arresting both liquid and powder coating overspray generated in industrial, automotive, and aerospace applications. Paint Pockets knocks down and retains more overspray than any arrestor. It keeps overspray out of your exhaust stack and off the booth floor. Paint Pockets is your best value for production spray booths.

Its unique design holds up to five times more overspray than other filters, enabling you to cut your filter changes by up to 80%. The three-dimensional "pockets" embedded in the front face of Paint Pockets more than double its surface area, allowing the arrestor to capture and hold very large quantities of overspray. Paint Pockets arrestors have superior wet tensile strength. Arrestors loaded with wet overspray do get heavy, but they won't tear or sag.

Paint Pockets arrestors slash disposal costs. Fewer filter changes means less waste. Your savings are significant, particularly if you use hazardous waste processors.

Arrests Virtually All Overspray

Independent laboratory test reports confirm Paint Pockets excels at capturing the very small 2.5 to 10 micron particles that typify overspray produced in most spray finishing operations. The arrestor effectively captures and retains these particles, preventing them from contaminating downstream equipment. Paint Pockets removes far more particles from the booth exhaust than any other high performance, single-stage overspray arrestor.

Its 99.84% arrestance efficiency means only 0.16% of the overspray actually penetrates the arrestor. At first glance, Filter X, a competitive arrestor, with a 99.5% overall arrestance efficiency might seem comparable. In reality though, three times as much overspray penetrates Filter X.

More importantly, Paint Pockets captures more of the smaller particulates than any other single-stage arrestor. The Fractional Arrestance Efficiency chart shows Paint Pockets arrests smaller overspray particulates that penetrate other arrestors.

Stable Air Flow

Its unique pockets enable Paint Pockets to accumulate significant quantities of overspray before it begins to noticeable restrict booth airflow. This feature permits you to "tune" your entire finishing process for maximum transfer efficiency and, more importantly, to operate in the optimum efficiency zone. Increased transfer efficiency means more parts coated per quantity sprayed and longer intervals between filter changes. A higher percentage of the finish is coating parts instead of the arrestors.

Low Run-Off

Paint Pockets now only removes overspray from your booth's exhaust air stream, its pockets assist in retaining overspray with the arrestor. Reduced run-off means less booth floor clean-up and quicker filter changes.

Best Value

You get up to an 80% reduction in filter changes, a corresponding reduction in waste disposal costs, more than a 50% reduction in back section and exhaust stack cleanouts, significantly less runoff, and improved transfer efficiency - all in an easy-to-change, user-friendly, polyester filter.

Paint Pockets is the most effective and most economical way to manage the overspray produced by common coatings including medium and high solids paints, powder coatings, water reduced paints, plural component coatings, stains, and adhesives.

Paint Pockets overspray arrestor is the best single-stage arrestor technology currently available for production spray booths. It is the lowest total cost solution for responsible overspray management.
