Ummm.....ventilation?
Or do you mean electrically? If so then don't ask. Real spray booths are a classified location and require explosion proof wiring and fixtures.

How big is the question---I have seen small ones for airbrush artists and ones large enough for automobiles---

What kind of sprayer? HVLP---airless?--high pressure air?

As long as you don't spray anything flammable throught it, any old fan and duct will do. If you want to spray anything else I'd get one that meets fire code requirements. Put a filter on it that can be changed either way.

Install for the worst possible condition. Do not rely on the product you plan to use to build the booth. Build the booth to flammable standards. This way if your materials change, you are prepared for any new product.

After reading your reply again i gave the extracter fan a second thought. because i am spraying wood glue that sticks on the fan and duct and the driving motor will be damaged.Yes i can wash it off with hot water but the electic motor is in danger. So i think if i use a v-belt to drive the van then the motor is "safe" and not in the way of the glue. the "glued air" will pass through the fan and duct and the cleaning is easy. (quote) If i us a longer v-belt the motor can even be safer. (quot)

I have seen the fans mounted remotely and the air is pulled through a filter or filters. I am no expert on paint booths, but I would imagine a filtration system would be the minimum requirement.
