CSB AIR FLOW

Intake: Outside air enters the booth through the door mounted filters located at the front of the booth, and travels horizontally through the paint/work zone. This air flow type is known as a ‘Cross Flow’ or ‘Cross Draft’. Airborne paint and particulates are carried with the air flow toward the rear of the booth.
Exhaust: At the rear of the booth, the overspray and particulates are captured by the exhaust plenum filters, and the filtered air is expelled from the booth via the exhaust ducting. Marathon uses standard size intake and exhaust filter media, available from Marathon Finishing Systems, Inc., and most industrial paint and refinishing suppliers.
Choosing a Portable Paint Booth

When you are looking for a spray booth of any type, there are a few key items to consider: The size of the booth (See“Booth Size” below), the CFM (See “CFM” below), and the type of filtration (See “Filtration” below).

Booth Size

The booth should be a size that gives you a comfortable work area around the items that you are coating, not just for ease of movement, but so that the air flows around the item properly. These booths are made to give you “Big Booth” performance in a compact and effective space.

CFM

CFM is an abbreviation of “Cubic Feet per Minute” and is a measure of the rate at which air moves through a specific space. The larger a space is, more air (or CFM) is required to move through that space. Industry standards define the rate to be a minimum of 100 feet per minute. Our Container Spray Booths meet or exceed this requirement.

Filtration

Intake filters are designed to remove particulates from the incoming air before it enters the work space. Exhaust filters are designed to remove overspray from the air stream before the exhaust air leaves the booth. Our Container Spray Booths are equipped with standard intake and exhaust filter media, available from Marathon Finishing or most industrial paint suppliers. You can replace these filters with the same filter media, or any specialized filter media that prevailing regulations define as appropriate for your application and location. To change the filters, simply pop the used filters out of their holding frames (please dispose of them according to applicable regulations), and insert the replacement filter media. Easy.

Specifications

Standard Series Spray Booth
The Standard Series Booths are designed with one simple concept in mind; good quality and design for a competitive price!

Basic Standard Features That Set Marathon Apart
Horizontal “Shadow Free” lighting located in side walls from LDPI, Inc., Dual skin “Barn” product doors, Dual Skin Man Access Door with a large Observation window, “Dayton” Fan from Grainger, “Dayton” High Efficiency motor from Grainger, G.E. Electrical Controls, Goyen air valves.

Construction and Design
All of Marathon’s Standard Series Booths are manufactured using 18 gauge galvanized steel on precision CNC equipment. Our booths are Nut & Bolt type construction, precision punched 6″ on center and 2″ companion flanged for easy assembly in the shop. Built according to NFPA Codes and OSHA national requirements.

Why are Marathon products so RELIABLE?
Marathon DOES NOT build our own fans, motors, light fixtures, heaters, and control panels like some “others”. We ONLY supply U.S. Made TOP BRAND NAME components that you can rely on and service easily. All fans and motors are available in any Grainger branch in your local city, or online. Marathon’s light fixtures are manufactured by LDPI, Inc., our controls are by G.E. and all heaters are ETL Listed with a 2 year warranty on all parts.

Marathon Goes the Extra Mile for Our High Quality Products!
Lighting
Manufactured in the US by LDPI, Inc., they are standard 48″ long, 4-Tube, 32 watt, T-8 fluorescent fixtures, with electronic ballast, dual voltage 120v/277v, U.L. listed for this application.

The Standard Series Booths are designed with horizontal lights in the side wall and hip panels for shadow free lighting. Some of our “cheap” competitors build their booths using 1 or 2 vertical lights in the side wall of the booth, because it’s cheaper to build it that way. All Marathon booths have horizontal light fixtures that run along the length of the spray booth, NOT up and down!

Product and Man Access Doors
Another standard Marathon feature is that our doors are all built with two skins (Dual Skin) not one. That means the main product and man access doors are smooth on the inside and the outside of the door. Like a steel door (fire door) should be. Our man access doors have a observation window. The cheaper booths have single skin doors with the flanges (structure) on the inside of the booth. This “Tin-can” door is flimsy and collects dust and over spray on the open flanges. It also “wobbles” when you open and close the door. All of Marathon’s doors are “Jig built” to last and use tube steel for extra strength.

Air Filtration
Marathon spray booths use only “Industry Standard” sized filters. Easily replaceable from your local paint store, filter supplier, online, or you can always call Marathon. The Standard Series Booths come with “20 x 20″ x 2″ hi-efficiency fiberglass paint arrestor pads (exhaust filters) and 20″ x 20″ x 1” premium “Tackified” intake filters with scrim backing and an internal metal frame.

Fans and Motors
Marathon’s fan and motor packages come from a long established and well trusted source; Grainger. These packages are U.S. manufactured, AMCA certified, spark resistant aluminum blades, hi efficiency 3-phase motors 208/230/460v (230v single phase available). With belt-driven tubeaxial fans, the streamlined belt tunnel ventilates the drive compartment with air from outside the fan. The steel housing is iron phosphate-processed for rust protection, and has a durable acrylic epoxy paint finish. The factory installed cast-iron sheave is assembled directly on the fan shaft. All Motors and belts are packed separately when the complete fan with drive package is ordered. Mounted either vertically or horizontally, these crucial components have permanently lubricated ball bearings for a long service life. The precision-balanced, aluminum AMCA Type B spark-resistant propellers and belt guards eliminate the risk of fire or explosion. Max. inlet air temp.: 200°F Max. ambient: 104°F.

Parts and Accessories
Marathon booth packages are supplied with a manometer, All required nuts & bolts, gaskets, caulking, tempered glass for light covers, instruction manual, assembly drawings, wiring diagrams, and Marathon’s factory support and expertise. We live spray booths!

Warranty
Marathon offers a manufacturer’s warranty on all spray booths for 1 year.

Built to last, Great Finishes Start with Marathon!

Product Options & Upgrades

(available with most models)
Marathon Finishing Systems offers a wide variety of options and upgrades for you to choose from. The standard booth configurations that are shown in our product pages are just a starting point. Every environment is unique, and every production line has it’s own special requirements. Listed below are some of the various options that you can add to your equipment order, although certainly not everything. We can custom engineer any solution you may require, so we know that no list can be complete. This list shows the most common options and upgrades, so if you don’t see what you want here, just ask us…

• Insulation
While the standard booth is a single wall, non insulated panel construction, we can also build your booth with double wall, insulated panels. These panels contain standard fiberglass insulation filling a center channel between two steel walls. While we do not recommend this type of upgrade, there are certain applications where it is appropriate. We can help you determine whether you need single or double wall panels.

• Doors
When we engineer a spray booth or oven, we usually configure the main product doors so that they are around 3 to 4 feet wide, so that they are easy to open and close, and do not weigh too much. This almost always turns out to be a “Barn Door” configuration. However, if you you need to have a specially designed door configuration to meet specific requirements (to fit in a certain space, for example), you can choose from a wide range of door styles:

  1. Tri-Fold
    A single opening is covered by three doors that can have a single door on one side, and two on the other. The single door can be opened and closed independent of the other two. Or if you choose, you can have all three doors open and close “Accordion Style”, in which all three doors are connected (and still have a single panel act as an independent single door).
  2. Bi-Fold
    A single opening is covered by two sets of doors, each having two panels and hinged in the middle. Each set can be opened independently of the other.
  3. Roll Up
    This type is the standard roll up door that you would see on a garage or industrial unit. The whole door lifts from the bottom and rolls up at the top.
  4. Custom
    Don’t see what you’re looking for? No problem! We can custom design and manufacture virtually any kind of door you may need, just tell us what you’re looking for, and we will find or fabricate it. Most of what we do is custom work, so you might say: It’s what we do.

• Windows
There are many standard size windows, from a small 10″ x 12″ “Peek In” window, up to a full size 36″ x 48″ “Observation” window. These windows can be placed in doors or wall panels of the booth to fit your needs. We can even make custom sized windows, and engineer them into your booth wherever you need them.

• Control Systems
As the various options that you require are added to your booth, the control options become more complicated. While it can start out with a simple “On-Off” switch, it can end up requiring a fully digital system with a touch sensitive display screen and computer control system. Not to worry! We can engineer the entire system to easily control all aspects of your equipment, while keeping the daily operations simple, yet effective. We will even show you how to properly operate each and every function, so that you can get right to work.

• Lighting
Marathon takes great care when calculating all aspects of illumination (location, distribution, orientation, etc.) for all of our spray booths, so that you get a “Shadow Free” and brightly lit work area. If you would like the ability to increase the amount of light that may be required for your application, we can add as many lights as you would like. If you would like to change the type of light fixtures (change an Open Type to a Class I Division II, for example), you can select from the many types of lights available. We supply lighting fixtures from LDPI, which come with a full one year warranty.

• Motors
While Marathon takes great care in making sure that the fans and motors that we engineer into our booths are adequate to the task of moving the air through the booth in the proper fashion, you may want to increase the horse power of the motor, or increase the size of the fans to meet a specific environmental requirement. We can accommodate such a request, and make sure that the delicate balance of intake and exhaust is appropriately maintained. We use only American made fans and motors, from the best manufactures in the country (such as Dayton, Hartzell and Weg). These parts come from directly from Grainger, so they are easy to locate and replace. They also come with a full year manufacturer’s warranty.

• Filters
One of the major functions of a spray booth is to remove overspray from the air stream before the air is exhausted from the booth. Another is to remove airborne particulates from the air before it is brought into the work area of the booth. Marathon uses standard intake and exhaust filters, readily available from most paint and filter suppliers. Both types of filters can be upgraded to a higher level of filtration, including NESHAP and HEPA, as well as filtering out harmful components from the use of chromates. The choices for filtration are many. Marathon can help you decide what filtration components are right for your application.

• Cooling Systems
Everywhere on Earth is either too hot or too cold at some time during the year. Working in comfort is the key to maintaining morale and productivity. For those times when it is too hot, we can configure your equipment to establish and adhere to a specific temperature envelope. We supply Carrier components (which also comes with a full year warranty), and integrate them seamlessly into your control systems. Keep your cool when production heats up.

• Heat (Curing) Systems
The heating systems available for spray booths are meant to perform two functions:

  1. “Comfort” heating, to keep the environment warm enough for worker comfort.
  2. “Spray & Cure”, for use after painting to speed up the drying of the paint, and to harden the paint beyond what is possible at room temperature. These components are also American made by one of this country’s foremost manufacturers of heating components for the spray booth industry.

• Humidity Control
While the requirement for true humidity control is uncommon, we can configure a system that will maintain your target humidity with accuracy and repeatability. Humidity can only be controlled if you have full heating and cooling systems as well, so only consider humidity control if you are planning to control both heating and cooling.

AIR FLOW
Intake:
Outside air enters through filters mounted in the front doors, and then travels through the work area. This type of design does not allow for the addition of an Air Make Up unit (AMU), so heating (or cooling) are not an option. The air travels horizontally (crossflow) through the booth.
Front Air Flow Airflow DiagramExhaust: Once the air has traveled the length of the booth, the overspray and particulates are removed 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.
