Grinding Booths

Prep and finishing work is messy business, and keeping particulates from contaminating your environment is a mandatory requirement. Worker safety and product quality can be adversely affected when air quality is not properly established and maintained, and as a business owner, the liability is on you. Marathon’s grinding/sanding booths are critical to establishing an “isolated environment” that will not only segregate high particulate work areas, but allow you to provide a safe work environment within those segregated zones, and give you full control over the waste products generated during the production cycle.

Grinding/Sanding Booths

Marathon’s Grinding and Sanding Booths are fully encapsulated Dust Collection and Mitigation Systems, designed to give you a clean, safe, and easy to use work space. It draws air in, from either the outside (via ducting) or from the ambient warehouse/shop environment and pushes it through the booth to the other side. The filter modules (at the other side) remove dust and contaminants form the air, and the clean air is vented out of the booth to either the outside (via ducting), or into the warehouse environment. Depending on your choice of filter media, collection and mitigation of particulates as small as 5 microns are removed, and filtration rates as high as 99.9% are achievable!

The Grinding / Sanding Booth
This booth is engineered from the ground up to be an efficient, heavy duty industrial solution that will last for decades. All of the booths panels are fabricated using precision CNC cut 18 gauge sheet steel, with bolt holes center cut every 6 inches on full 2 inch flanges where the panels join together, and since it’s CNC, it all fits together flawlessly! These units are assembled using nuts & bolts (not screws), so you know it’s strong!

The Air (it’s all about the AIR!)
We want your booth to be the least of your worries, so the fans and motors in our booths are all manufactured in the US, and each component has been selected based on critical criteria, such as safety rating, horsepower, duty rating, warranty, and other key factors to maximize your equipment’s effective service life, while minimizing service and maintenance effort. This has the added benefit of also minimizing overall down time.

The Light
How well you’re able to see what you’re doing in your work environment is one of the highest rated safety considerations! Marathon uses only the highest quality, ETL listed (Class I, Div II) lighting fixtures that are designed specifically for use in this application. These fixtures use standard T-8 fluorescent bulbs that can found at any commercial supplier. But that’s only one partof lighting integration… WHERE you place the lights can be the most critical aspect. We have optimized placement and orientation of the lighting of the fixtures to provide you with the optimal visibility, while at the same time minimizing the shadows that your body casts as you move around and work.

AIR FLOW
Intake, heated booth: Outside air is filtered twice, once as it enters through the air make up unit located at the side of the booth, and again as it passes through the intake plenum filters (shown in green). In this example, this booth is equipped with a Spray & Cure heating unit.
Semi Down Draft Airflow Diagram
Intake, non heated booth:
The air is filtered twice, once through plenum side filters, and again through the ceiling filters before entering the work area.
Semi Down Draft Airflow DiagramExhaust: The filtered air travels horizontally across the length of the booth (crossflow). Finally, the air is filtered of overspray and particulates by the exhaust filters before exiting the booth. Marathon uses standard size intake and exhaust filter media, readily available from most paint and refinishing suppliers.
