After exhaust filter, Anyone do it?


Garage hack at night.....
So I run exhaust filter, but damn the clear still gets through. Does anyone run a set of filters after the fan to help this?

Here is my before the exhaust filter setup.

Then it exits on the back corner of the garage. Does anyone run a set of filters, like a big box around the shutter?

Running more exhaust filters would help alot. There's not much surface area in your pic which allows the clear to get through. Typical booth will have a lot more surface area. something along the lines of 12 - 20x25 exhaust filters.
Keep in mind even if you are 100% efficient in trapping the paint solids you are still gonna notice a solvent smell coming out of the exhaust.

Add on paint booth exhaust setups have a large plenum box between the fan & a wall of filters. Not sure what all you got there between filters & where the fan actually is, but removing your sampling board area & having filters to the outside of it would be a good start.
Also there are filters of varying filtration efficiency, make sure you have good ones. The Viledon 500 Series that we use captures 98.9%.
