Extract fumes from injection molding machines

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!

Best Regards,

CSA-600 - Heavy Duty Dust & Odor Removal

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

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.
