Farr Air Pollution Control's (Jonesboro, Ark.) new Gold Series Booth (GSB) is designed to protect workers in production casting, grinding, sanding, abrasive blasting, welding, power painting and similar work environments. The booth features a cantilevered roof (no support poles, walls, fume arms or low-hanging hoods) that covers the work environment on three sides, creating a cross draft in the work area, which reportedly pulls dust and/or fumes away from the breathing zone and facilitates production flow of parts or materials through the booth area. Its modular design permits installation of blowers with airflow capacities ranging from 5,400 cfm to as high as 100,000 cfm. The system uses the company's HemiPleat filter cartridge, which features an open pleat media (pat. pend.) that is said to double filter service life and reduce pressure drop.
