  • RP Paint Arrestors
    Col-Met now offers a complete line of paint arrestors. These disposable paint overspray collectors are a cost effective, efficient way to handle any overspray requirement....

  • RP Paint Arresters are disposable paint overspray collectors that efficiently trap paint solids before they reach the exhaust stack. These were the first dry filters specifically designed to control paint overspray. Through the years, these high efficiency and high capacity Paint Arresters have proven to be a cost effective, efficient way to handle virtually every overspray requirement. Fabricated of slit and expanded paper, or slit and expanded paper with polyester, the multiple layers of RP Paint Arrestors are assembled so the intake side has larger openings than the exhaust side. This provides depth loading for maximum service life.
