Buying Guide for Fume Extractor Filters

fume-extractors-guide

Fume extractors are essential for safely removing hazardous chemicals and other contaminants from your products. But, not all filter units are made the same. As the exclusive provider of TEKA filters in North America, Adapt Laser provides quality fume extractor filter units for your laser processing solutions. But, what makes them different? What are your options? And, what do you need to know before purchasing a filter for your laser system?

IMPORTANCE OF FUME EXTRACTION FILTER UNITS

Similar to how laser cleaning solutions include filtration systems that absorb everything from hazardous coatings to dust and other airborne contaminants, other laser processes require filter units to capture dangerous airborne contaminants. When these particles are absorbed into the laser system using the integrated suction, they pass through a filter that catches any hazardous microbes that may be harmful to your operators, equipment, and the environment. Often, laser systems include multiple filters to ensure the cleanest air — including HEPA and ULPA filter sets.

BENEFITS OF TEKA FILTER UNITS

In addition to capturing any and all fumes during the laser process, our filter units — especially when our HEPA or ULPA filter sets are used — offer various benefits. Some include:

  • Enabling the highest quality part
  • Keeping equipment at the highest functionality and effectiveness
  • Mitigating the risk of air contamination
  • Reducing the need for bulky PPE — including masks or HAZMAT suits
  • Removing hazardous coatings from your products
  • Preventing hazardous coatings from infiltrating your employees’ lungs

TEKA FUME EXTRACTOR SYSTEMS

Our state-of-the-art TEKA fume extraction systems are ideal for laser and other fume and particle emitting applications. Whether you’re using your laser system for the first time or the thousandth, you can ensure that your fume extraction filter unit will effectively remove fumes and other airborne contaminants from your operating space. These filters are designed to block 99.997% (HEPA) and 99.9995% (UPLA) of fumes and other harmful microbes to keep your employees and operators safe. And, when used with laser cleaning systems, you’re left with a pristine surface that’s ready for coating, welding, or bonding treatments.

Our filter units can be used for a wide variety of laser solutions — laser cleaning to welding and cutting systems. Our current fume extraction filter units include:

PURCHASING A FUME EXTRACTION FILTER UNIT

Purchasing a fume extraction filter unit is fairly simple once we know what laser system you’re using. From there, we can identify the filter appropriate for your needs. The buying process for our fume extraction filter units is broken down into three steps:

1. IDENTIFY YOUR SYSTEM

From laser cleaning to welding and cutting, different laser solutions require slightly different filter units. That’s why the first step in our buying process is to identify which laser system you’re using and what considerations need to be understood. Common items for review include the volume of the enclosure, material particulates, whether fire prevention is required, the ducting configuration, and more.

2. DETERMINING YOUR FILTER UNIT

Once we know the specific details of your system, we can begin making recommendations for the solution that will solve those issues. This helps you buy the right filter for your needs — one that is safe, won’t contaminant the environment, and doesn’t require constant filter changes, among other benefits.

3. QUOTE THE SOLUTION
