These fume extraction systems are specifically designed to filter harmful solvents caused by commercial inkjet printers. It effectively captures fumes from both the print head and the vents in the control unit, protecting personnel from inhaling the solvent fumes.


Description: Inkjet codes on cansThese fume extractors are designed to capture and filter harmful solvent vapor from inkjet printers then return clean air to the workplace without the need for an expensive and disruptive vent to atmosphere ducting system.

Inkjet printers are used widely throughout manufacturing and packaging industries to apply information, identification codes and best before dates etc. onto products made from various materials such as glass, card and metal.

Various organic solvents are used as carriers for the ink pigment such as Methyl Ethyl Ketone (M.E.K.) which can cause eye irritation and CNS depression; it is also a skin irritant and can be harmful by ingestion or inhalation.

The Solution

Description: inkjet codes on a caseThe extraction and purification system effectively captures fumes from both the print head and the vents in the control unit, therefore protecting personnel from inhaling the solvent fumes.

Fumes are drawn through a Solvent-Lock filter which utilizes a specialized blend of filter media to adsorb and oxidise the solvent safely before clean air is returned to the workplace. These systems help to:

  • Protect personnel.
  • Ensure compliance with health and safety legislation.
  • Prevent medical conditions such as fatigue, headaches, nausea.
  • Reduce absenteeism.
  • Remove solvent odors.

They are also:

  • Completely mobile.
  • Compact and quiet in operation.
  • Easily maintained.
  • and offer long filter life

Key:
Normal selection.
Select if extra filter capacity is required and/or additional airflow is required to extract from multiple lasers or heavy duty applications.
(-) May also be considered.
X  Unit not usually specified for application.
O For lasing onto PVC.

Notes:
1. The selection is based on the use of standard connection kit.
2. The 800i 3 tier unit is designed for use where the application has low dust, but high gas emissions. The 2 tier is designed for applications producing high dust emissions.
3.  A poor enclosure is where less than 4 sides of the process are enclosed.
