The paper gives results of a design and demonstration program for a full-scale recirculating spray paint booth installed and operated at the U.S. Marine Corps, Marine Corps Logistics Bases facility at Barstow, CA. It also summarizes the regulatory and safety design issues of recirculation spray booths. Studies conducted by EPA with various Department of Defense services have demonstrated that the cost of typical spray booth control can be reduced significantly through the use of spray booth recirculation. Reductions of exhaust flow rates of up to 90% when using recirculation have been achieved in properly designed and operated booths without the industrial hygiene and fire safety problems often mentioned when discussing recirculation booths.
