Fume box for fine powder
New Zealand Duct & Flex has added a new compact pulse filter to their range, ideal for capturing fine powders, cement, welding fumes, and, fine dusts and fragments from grinding and polishing metals.
Geoff Ebdon, sales manager at NZ Duct&Flex says: “With Worksafe inspectors becoming more vigilant in the way work areas are being ventilated, there is a requirement for dust and fume extraction from Fume Arms or small hoods to be improved so the whole factory doesn’t fill with fumes, polluting the air for the other staff working ‘downwind’.
“Sometimes you can vent these extractors to atmosphere via the roof, but some situations demand filtration first, especially when the dust concerns neighbouring companies.”
The new Fume Box can be supplied with a JKF Industri 2.2kw fan (single phase 240v power) and just needs a compressed air supply. It is then ducted to the fume arms or hoods concerned.
Manufactured by JKF Industri, Europe’s largest dust filter supplier, the Fume Box can be purchased with the fan integrated or separate. The Fume Box’s compact foot print (650mm square) makes it ideal for small workshops and the 69 litre bin is easy to empty. The bin is connected by a simple lever lock and fitted with casters.
A single pleated cartridge can efficiently deal with debris from up to two to three Fume Arms. Cleaning is controlled by a simple to pre-programme and adjust electronic control unit for the pulse cleaning.
