Vapors released into the workplace during the printing process are capable of producing a number of unpleasant human reactions. Purex Large Format Printing Fume Extractors will eliminate these hazardous fumes and help deliver actual savings to the production process.

Description: Fumes are produced by wide format printersInk fumes from printers can cause headaches and nausea but also an unpleasant working environment and so they should be controlled. Processes requiring fume extraction include:

  • Wide Format Printers
  • Dye Sublimation
  • UV Printing
  • and more...

Purex systems are available with bespoke connection kits for all common printer models including:

  • EFI Vutek
  • HP
  • Mimaki
  • Mutoh
  • Roland
  • OCE
  • Seiko
  • and more...

The Solution

Description: Captivair extractor on a wide format printerOur fume extraction systems are designed in conjunction with some of the worlds largest printer manufactures.
There are typically three sources of fumes and odours when using a wide format printer: -

1.    Vapor released as the ink is applied
2.    Vapor from the print passing over the heater platen
3.    Vents underneath the heater platen

The Captivair includes hoods, hoses and manifolds to capture fumes from the printer's enclosure at several key points. The contaminated air is then drawn through a special filter where the contaminants are captured allowing filtered air to be returned to the workplace.
After initial consultation Purex engineers can visit a site free of charge to carry out a survey* and to suggest suitable designs and solutions. What to do next: -

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.

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.
