R.H. wrote to inquire about our fume extractors for use when purging their injection molding machine – issue with smoke and odor:
We would only open the exhaust when purging the machine, so I only envision one machine needing extraction at a time. We never run more than four machines total, so worst case scenario, we’d need to extract from four. I envision having flexible ducting to each machine, with a open/closeable vent at each machine above the nozzle. If that isn’t feasible, I would see if there is a way we could fabricate an enclosure around the nozzle. As far as the manifold goes, I envision something very much like the one pictured in your brochure with the ten stations (an 8-10 ft. section of pvc with ports coming off of it), the only difference, is the flexible hose (duct hose) would be longer than what is pictured.
After going back and forth discussing various options, we have decided to go with the CSA626 Fume Extractor with a modified filter sequence incorporating a 20″ chemical filter section.
R.H writes back, after the unit was delivered and put to use:
I just put the fume extractor to use for the first time; on a machine/material that has known to “smoke out” the building…let me say, I am thoroughly impressed with the performance of the unit. I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical when you stated that it would remove the smell as well, but sure enough, it’s performing just like you said it would. It looks as though all of the research/questions have resulted in receiving a great product…thanks!
