Laser cutting | Sticky Smoke | Premature clogging

Sticky smoke

is what we sometimes call the by-product when cutting or engraving on resinous materials such as acrylic, wood, materials with adhesive backing, etc. They consume filters sooner rather than later 🙂

Here’s where our Pre-filter modules that can be added on our Laser Fume Extractors or ordered as a stand-alone to complement your existing laser fume extractor / air filtration system.

Designed to enhance the performance of the SPH800/SPH400 air purifiers, the PF800/PF400 passive pre-filter modules capture larger dust and particles protecting the air purifier’s HEPA and/or carbon filter.

Capture-PF400-PF800

Who needs it?

Customers that have heavy dust loadings will appreciate this pre-filter section since it will prolong the life of the primary filters inside the SPH800/SPH400 extractors, reducing the maintenance costs.

What’s inside?

The PF800/PF400 modules contain three (PF800) or two (PF400) high-capacity antimicrobial, multilayered, dust filter bags that can capture a significant amount of dust and particulate matter before it reaches the primary filters of the SPH800/SPH400 units.

How easy is it to change the filters?

Whether you have a standalone or add-on module filter bags are accessed in the same manner. Remove inlet cover, quarter turn 4 locking mechanisms and remove the section to replace bags. Designed to be clean simple and effective. Dust is contained in the bags to
minimize the mess and exposure of personnel to potentially harmful dust.

How can I use it?

The PF800/PF400 passive pre-filters can be used either as add-on modules to an SPH800/SPH400 air purifier or as standalone mobile units. The standalone modules, can be used with virtually any existing filtration system. The inlet and discharge collars can accommodate many different arrangements to suit the application. Single or dual 1”, 1.5”, 2”, 2.5”, 3” or 4” diameter collars are available as standard options. Custom diameters are
available upon request.

Dimensions: H x W x D

PF800: 30 x 16 x 25 (in) / 76 x 40 x 64 (cm)
PF400: 24 x 12 x 15 (in)  / 76 x 30 x 38 (cm)

Laser Fume Extractor | Morntech (MT- L1290)

A prospective client, who we happily supplied with the matching air filtration system / Laser Fume, Laser Cutting, Laser Engraving Dust, Odor, Fume Extractor system, initially wrote:

Hello,

I contacted you via phone earlier today regarding an air filtration system. According to the head of our tech department this should be compatible with the Morntech (MT- L1290) that we have ordered. The specifications are listed in the right column of the chart below.

Thanks,

Tracy L

Our SPH-426 (SPH-400 series) was the perfect match for their Morntech (MT- L1290) laser cutting, laser engraving machine. Just to mention other brands of Laser cutters, Laser markers, Laser engravers- we’ve matched our Laser Fume, Dust, Odor Extractors with:

Laser Fumes, Odor, Dust, Particle Extraction Filtration

     The CSA is the workhorse fume extractor of the laser industry; designed to operate in a heavy duty environment.  A large pre-filter bag that is easily accessed to change via a convenient side panel eliminates much of the debris that might otherwise clog the more expensive HEPA filters.  A huge chemical bed of 66Lb. (30kg) provides significant odor and VOC protection for much longer than the light duty units again providing a solution that can withstand a heavy workload.  Chemical compounds can be customized based on specific applications     With large collection bag, HEPA Filter & Deepbed Odor filters     LaserBlue Gel seal guarantees NO BYPASS     Dual hi-speed turbine for high suction, pressure & airflow     Whisper quiet operation is office friendly     Universal design allows for 2.5", 3", 4" inlet along with discharge

Cutting, engraving, using a Laser Cutter, Laser Engraving machine can produce nasty, unhealthy chemical fumes, odors, smoke, dust. Reduce your exposure to these health hazards – capture close to the source of these pollutants.

Whether you are using any of the following or other brands of Laser Cutter, Laser Engraving machine / equipment, we have a Fume, Smoke, Dust Extractor / Air Filtration System / Air Purifier for your needs:

Effective fume extraction is critical to laser systems due to the possibility of toxic, carcinogenic corrosive or extremely odorous contaminants that can be generated.  All of our systems feature multi-stage filtration incorporating a 2” Pre-filter section, 2” Certified HEPA filter and activated carbon modules. We offer systems for light-medium duty tabletop systems favored by hobbyists everywhere as well as mid-heavy duty cycle units for larger tables and/or significant particle accumulation. New this year is our SPH-400 pre-filter section which will turn our popular SPH-400 system into a true heavy duty dust collector.

Air filtration system for fine dust particles as well as small amounts of chemical fumes

Air filtration system for fine dust particles as well as small amounts of chemical fumes

Prospective customer writes:

We are hoping to source a unit that can control fine dust particles as well as small amounts of chemical fumes (methyl methacrylate / butyl acrylate) released from cutting, routing or gluing solid surface substances such as Corian by Du Pont. We recently had a Ministry of Labour Hygienist come in to advise us about the possibility of combustible dust explosions and she was adamant that in any system where the five elements of a dust explosion are present: 1. Confinement, 2. Oxygen, 3. Explosive material, 4. Ignition source, 5. Dispersion – the employer is obligated to ensure that the machinery used to control the dust or fumes is appropriately rated for the task to prevent the possibility of dust explosions by removing at least one of the above elements – the easiest being the ignition source: static electricity or spark.

As such we are looking for an carbon filter or HEPA filter fitted unit capable of handling dust, and fume extraction while remaining a safe option for an environment with elevated levels of combustible gas.
