These were the first dry filters specifically designed to control paint over spray. Through the years, the RP family of standard, high efficiency and capacity Paint Arrestors have proven to be a cost effective, efficient way to handle virtually every over spray requirement. Fabricated of slit and expanded paper, or slit and expanded paper with polyester, the multiple layers of RP Paint Arrestors are assembled so the intake side has larger openings than the exhaust side. This provides depth loading for maximum service life.
ALERT! New EPA Regulation
A new national standard now requires all shops that spray coatings containing a targeted hazardous air pollutant (HAP) to conduct spray operations in a booth outfitted with an exhaust filter with a removal efficiency of 98% or greater. Work with your paint booth manufacturer or filter supplier to select the right filter for your shop's filtration needs.
