The exhaust fan in the ceramic glaze spray shed has failed at my local Arts Center. The fan had an open motor and the spray had clogged up and shorted out the motor. What the old one is is a 10 inch inline duct fan. That unit is no longer being manufactured so I need to get it replaced with something comparable. I have seen some fans available on the internet but they are different and are very expensive. So, I'm checking with others on this forum for recommendations. I'll either be looking for an affordable replacement fan for the old one that failed. Or come up with some other DIY solution for exhausting ceramic glaze in a spray booth. Recommendations?
I am wondering if anyone has tried using the paint spray guns from harbor freight that run around $16.99. Or is it a you get what you pay for situation and worth the $50 to buy the PH300 glaze sprayer from the ceramic suppliers? Do paint sprayers even work for glaze, or will the just get all clogged up? I make 1" ceramic pendants and hand brush the fronts and backs. two coats on the back and three on the top. I currently have hundreds to do, and I think the time saved by using a spray gun will be the way to go.
Theres a spray booth at the studio where I work. However, I would love to hear if anyone has had success using an atomizer or hand sprayer. I would be using it to get a light coat of clear glaze over plates. It would save a lot of time and cleaning:) thanks!
