Blowtherm booths accommodate today’s extended height and length vehicles. Erik Plude, one of three painters at Olender’s, easily operates the Blowtherm USA control panel.

‘This Extended Height Blowtherm Spray Booth Accommodates Larger Vehicles Like Ambulances and Stretched Limos’ (article continued)

Olender’s Body Shop originally purchased several standard automotive Blowtherm booths in 2014, but this larger booth is a whole different machine. “This new booth is considerably brighter with the LED hip and wall lights. When your painters can see better, the finished job will always come out considerably better across the board.”

Scavotto is impressed by the increased production of 30% thanks to Blowtherm’s air-speed/waterborne flash-off system. He added, “The quicker flash time is a huge deal!” Blowtherm’s quick dry air speed is known to provide shorter flash-off times between coats, provide faster removal of volatile components before the recirculation process, with zero additional energy costs.

Olender’s gives major kudos to Blowtherm’s overall excellent customer service. “The support we get from our distributor (Mike Hites, Autoquip, Newmarket, NH) is also very efficient.”

When asked what he would say to someone in the market for a new spray booth, Scavotto got straight to the point: “It’s a long-lasting piece of high-quality equipment,” he said. “By all means, buy this Blowtherm booth---you will definitely not be disappointed!”

Special Projects Manager Dave Olender is a big fan of Blowtherm’s heat recuperator system. “I can’t even imagine my fuel bill without using Blowtherm’s heat recuperator system,” he said. “Considering we’re hitting record low temperatures this winter, with the Heat Recuperation system, we are witnessing rapid temperature rise to ‘called for temps’ in the spray and bake cycles, which helps lower our fuel consumption. Very impressive.

“We looked at several other booth manufacturers but like the construction of the Blowtherm Extra. We were really sold on the Heat Recuperation and Air Speed/Waterborne, Hi-Solid Flash-Off systems. The air movement is so incredible, no extra fans or blowers are ever needed.

“We’re actually kicking out an additional four cars per day. Plus, Blowtherm’s technology is giving us a much cleaner finish. Blowtherm will remain our spray booth vendor of choice.”

The finished product is always spectacular when a car comes out of a Blowtherm booth. Here are a sample of customer reviews featured on “Excellent job, car looks new!! Car looks great.” “Back sooner than expected.” “Excellent work and very timely. Beautiful.” “My car looked amazing. At first I didn’t recognize it. JOB WELL DONE!” “I am very completely satisfied with the outcome of my Lexus repair. I know that it was a difficult task in getting the correct paint color, but Olender’s team of professionals did the job... love it!!"
