During the painting of automobiles, machinery and consumer products, up to 50% of the paint sprayed toward a surface does not coat it; rather, it becomes overspray in the air that cannot be exhausted to the plant atmosphere because of its environmental characteristics. To efficiently capture this overspray, the IR4TD created a truly innovative and unique technology called “Vortecone”. In comparison to other overspray capture technologies, Vortecone saves 30-55% on energy consumption, has capture efficiencies as high as 99.996%, can actually decrease the relative humidity of the air exiting the system as compared to that entering, uses 30-50% less water during operation, and almost eliminates the need for any cleaning of the capture system.
Vortecone is an example of IR4TD’s computational and engineering design ingenuity. Ongoing research aims to further improve it.
