vapor removal

i didn'ty have any luck in the search mode. i'm curious what exhaust fans might be useable in the removal of finishing vapor's and odors in a small production shop, more the harmful kind. i suspect the sawdust air cleaners might work. any thoughts or advice.

Air cleaners wont work.

You need to exhaust the vapors out of the area while also bringing fresh air in.

Your going to need a sealed motor(hazardous location type) on whatever you use if you are subject to being audited by health and safety folks. DAMHIKT.

I don't know but if no one else gives any better info I suggest googling the phrase "fume hood".

Exhaust Fan.

If you are going to be subject to inspection you will need to build a proper spray booth. If you are working from an unregulated area like out in the county or from your garage and no one officially is aware of you then safety is your only concern. Calculate the CFM rating of your exhause fan based on changing the entire air in your shop about 10 to 12 times an hour. Anything more than that and you will create too much of a draft. Much less than that and you will be creating a vapor cloud. The cloud will definitely be very unhealthy from an inhalation point of view and possibly explosive depending on what you are spraying.
Regardless what you spray, I would also suggest HVLP to really keep the vapors down.
