Live Paint out the Stacks

Paint booths never remove 100% of the paint overspray, so light build-up over an extended time frame is to be expected. However, live paint that makes its way out the stacks and onto cars in the parking lot is never a good thing. Bottom line is that somehow paint overspray is getting past the scrubbing chamber and suggests that 1) paint deposition there or on the flood sheets is allowing paint to bypass it, and/or 2) booth balance is upset and the scrubbing efficiency is less than design. A third possibility is the booth may be above its capacity due to increases in paint loading/production.
