AGM: maintenance is best

Keeping spraybooth equipment in a good working condition is imperative to ensure continuous and reliable operation advises AGM.

According to spraybooth maintenance service provider, AGM a regular service and maintenance programme can significantly improve the performance of a spraybooth.

Wesley Young, sales director at AGM Services, ‘One of the most common situations our spraybooth engineers come across when attending spraybooth breakdowns is lack of filter changes. It may seem like a good idea to delay the replacement of old filters to save costs, but typically this is proven to be a false economy. Overdue filter changes force your spraybooths equipment to work harder in compensation of clogged filters. Motors and burners experience a heightened level of wear and tear, leading to an increased risk of equipment breakdown.’

It has also been proven that clogged filters have a significant impact on the quality of work carried out in the spraybooth.

Wesley continued, ‘We appreciate that bodyshops are busy and that replacing filters may not be high up on your priorities, however the importance of regular maintenance and spraybooth filter changes cannot be overlooked.’
