COMPARISON AND SYSTEM BENEFITS
The SAICOZERO ZONE is a revolutionary new system which provides higher productivity, lower energy and operating costs, and greatly reduced environmental impact, while delivering SUPERIOR FINISHING. Compared with conventional paint systems, the SAICOZERO ZONE creates higher quality and greater profitability.
Consider the multiple benefits and advantages offered by this innovation in painting technology.
Significantly abated electrostatic conditions
When air moves, especially when it is laden with particulates like paint overspray, it tends to create a potential voltage, usually called static electricity. This static electricity can create an attraction between the car to be painted and the drying overspray. As a result, the overspray tends to settle on the newly painted surface creating defects which must be buffed out. The SAICOZERO ZONE dramatically reduces the buildup of static electric charges, greatly increasing the odds of producing a buff free paint job.
Space is expensive, why waste it
when you can have better result
with our integrated regenerator?
The SAICOZERO ZONE Regenerator
delivers better performances
than any other system in the market,
but only occupies 28" (70 cm).
Traditional booths exhaust paint vapors into the air around the shop, creating objectionable odors and emitting pollution. Any particulate overspray that is not captured by the filters tends to build up in the exhaust stack which, over time, begins to restrict airflow and can become a fire hazard. Removing the buildup is time consuming and costly.
The SAICOZERO ZONE regenerative filtration system virtually eliminates the emission of paint vapors and overspray. This is a huge benefit to all shops but is of particular importance to those in built up or urban areas where heavy odors can generate complaints from neighboring businesses or residents.
The SAICOZERO ZONE burners provide superior performance with significantly reduced gas consumption. Traditional burners can use 10 times the fuel to achieve the same metal temperature.
In addition to the continuous reduction in gas usage, the initial installation cost of the gas supply system can be substantially lower.
The SAICOZERO ZONE system recovers nearly all of the heat content of the air thanks to its Regenerative Filtration System that acts as a Thermal Mass. The Controlled temperature of the air maintains an optimal work environment, both for the operator and the paint.
Compare this new operating system with that of the traditional painting booths: in a typical "old style" cure cycle, a traditional booth will reduce the volume of air passing through the system up to 60-90%, to obtain a faster rise of the temperature, but providing less air to dilute the gases produced during the polymerization and thus creating an environment at risk of fire.
The SAICOZERO ZONE provides a higher volume of air flow throughout ALL cycles.
The same amount of air is flowing over the work during both spray and cure cycles.
LOWER ELECTRIC USAGE
The SAICOZERO ZONE uses only an average of 25 A to move the high volume of air it provides. Conventional heated booths, even those rated for only 10,000 CFM or 18000 m3/h, typically use 2 10 hp motors, or 15 kw.
More air for almost half the cost requires no further comment.
Conventional light fixtures produce a highly directional light source
which creates distracting reflections and refractions on the surface to be painted.
The SAICOZERO ZONE uses ceiling diffuse lighting in order to provide a bright diffuse illumination.
Construction of an exhaust pit or recessed area for traditional basement style booths is enormously expensive and, in existing shops, very disruptive. The usual bar grate floor is uncomfortable to work or kneel on and is difficult to clean.
The SAICOZERO ZONE basement, at only 6” (15cm) high, requires no concrete work. The floor is FLAT and smooth, which increases operator comfort and eases the movement of equipment carts or parts stands.
The perfect complement to the flat basement floor is the modular wheel lift. The vehicle wheels are positioned on lift points level with the floor surface and can be lifted by remote control.
Each side can be raised independently to allow easy access to all parts of the vehicle. Conventional body lifts require the operator to kneel and manually position the lift points, and only allow the car to be raised, not tilted.
The SAICOZERO ZONE is designed to be a self-supporting structure, requiring no floor mounted supports or ceiling hangers.
The absence of floor supports makes staging work into the paint area easier and safer, and the operator can freely move his tools without obstacles. The lack of ceiling hangers is more important than generally realized. Most steel buildings typically used for body shops, unless otherwise specified during initial engineering and construction, are limited or zero collateral load structures. They simply are not designed to bear the weight of a hanging plenum and still carry the maximum wind and snow loads
