CJ- no offense was taken...
Mike- explosion is the one thing that I do worry about, I was hoping that with the two fans and pulling the air through would help that... the one thing that I am a little worried about is my lighting though since they are halogen lights 4 two on each stand 500 watts.. so 2000 total.... then I have read a lot of things saying that with the hvlp guns there is alot less over spray than there use to be .... and the worst time is actually as the chemicals dry ... so it is alot less likly than it use to be... the only things that will actually be in there with me will be the 2 box fans blowing out the back door and the two lights everything else will be out side the enclosure....

should be okay shouldn't it????

I've done it like that myself but the thread on booth explosions got me worring for your safety ....I havn't painted like that in years so PLEASE do your homework and start a thread on homemade booths.... I 'm not qualified to advise you on your booth except : dont paint at night ,you'll never get the buggs out of the paint job.I wouldnt be able to live with myself if my ignorance caused you harm in any way.....I'll say this though, its not the bulbs that'll give you trouble (there sealed)so if your useing extention cords....plug the lights in at the house not in the booth,do the same the same with the fans,unplug the same way when done so you'll get no sparks from switches or unpluging...haligen lights get very hot to hot they'll raise the temp in the booth so high you wont be able to paint properly,use floresent bulbs theres many kinds of bulbs some are made just for paint work but dont worry about all that just use any old floresent bulbs,the fan is what worries me,address that.......

well my plan was to use extension cords , plug the lights , and compressor in to my generator out side of the enclosure, and my fans into the house and if I decide to use the fresh air hood that into the house too... I don't have any plans on having any plugs in the enclosure, and the only things that will actually be in the enclosure would be the lights and the fans.... compressor will be outside... I will read up on the fans.... maybe I will go to home depot and buy a floresent light that I can hang from the roof.. I do know those cords are sort so I will plug it into and extension cord and wrap with electrical tape.... I figure the air should be evacuated pretty quick with two box fans and the vents... Ill look into it though

I also found this in one of the threads....
Let's not lose sight of the fact that any evaporative substance with the ability to combust requires a minimum concentration in the air to reach its flash point. Don't think for a second that I am downplaying anyone's concerns about the risks involved or the precautions being taken to minimize those risks. It just seems that if you can move enough air through the area, the volatile compounds will never even come close to reaching flash point, making it a moot point to have explosion-proof equipment. My garage is 24x30x9 for a total of 6500 cubic feet. A high-velocity 24" floor fan will exchange that once a minute, which should easily keep fumes below the flash point. Besides, a true explosion-proof environment would be horrendously expensive for the average hobbyist.

well mike I was told by about 3 people to turn the fans around blowing in ward and let it vent out the top vents.. that will eliminate the fans as being the ignitors.... what do you think of this? they said since they are at ground level just have a decent breeze nothing wild...

another post I found

I personally don't see how an induction motor can spark a fire...

A brush motor, yes.. but your typical AC motor is pure induction.. no sparks involved..

But I suppose that spark proof motors are fully enclosed so there must be something to it..

anyone wish to eludicate me?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lundy, those "explosion proof" motors are the induction type, and some of the better ones have fiber seals around all the shaft and bearing points. Blowers and fans have either aluminum, or fiber impellers.....the risk of explosion on a STANDARD (not explosion resistant) blower is generally from a metal chip making contact with a steel or other ferrous impeller.

Again the risk is from a steel impeller accidentally contacting another material that can cause a spark when striking a steel impeller.

So what you should be more concerned about is the impeller type on your blower. Most induction type motors will do just fine.

That's funny, looks like the three of us were sailing the same boat. Dropped out of high school to go to work. Later on got my GED. One of my teachers talked me into going to college.

Got your PM DBM, thankyou.
