No, it’s not a trendy eco-toilet for hippy festival-heads, the Filtoo is an exhaust extraction unit from Flextraction. Built by Teka in Germany, it sucks up fumes, dust and gases found in welding, bonding, gluing, brazing, soldering, laser welding and restoration applications.
It takes polluted air in through the suction hood and hose into 4 different filters; the G4 10 piece coarse filter separates any dust particles, the F5 pre-filter filters finer dusts, the F9 main HEPA filter filters other fine dust particles with a more than 99% separation efficiency and the Activated Carbon Filter absorbs any unpleasant odours. Clean air is returned to the workshop through an outlet grill at the rear of the unit.
The ‘filtoo’ has a fan capacity of 2,500m3/hr with an operating noise level of 72dB(A). It is available from stock for a next day delivery and is supplied with the option of either a 3m x 150mm diameter self-supporting extraction arm or a flexible hose on the side for attaching to a processing application. It has an operating hours meter and an audible alarm for when the filters need changing. It weighs 80kg and because of its compact size is suitable for small workshops.
