Laser Fume Extraction
We have teamed up with Sentry Air, based out of Houston, TX, to offer a convenient, reliable air filtration system. These systems are offered in two variants: 1) HEPA and 2) Advanced carbon filtration.
All systems are built in Houston, TX, come with a two-year warranty, and are offered as a pass-through service from us.
Perfect for advanced filtration of dust particles. This filter removes 99.97% of contaminants down to 0.3 microns in size. These filters are perfect for collecting the contaminant remains of laser marking and etching. When lasers effect the substrate level tiny particulates are blasted off the surface and can become airborne which harms operator health and the working environment.
ADVANCED CARBON FILTRATION
This filter type uses activated charcoal as a carbon source to adsorb (one material sticking to the surface of another) fumes, smoke, and chemicals into the filter source. Our Sentry Air solution works by having an extra-large surface area for compounds to bond to. How effective these filters work depends on the chemicals being off-gassed.
Have you ever wondered what makes stainless not rust? The addition of chromium is the reason. When laser marked, hexavalent chromium is released into the atmosphere it is poisonous to the human body. HEPA filters remove this deadly toxin. Not only this, but other heavy metals, such as beryllium, lead, and metals like nickel and manganese, also offer health hazards that should be removed.
When marking PVC (like pipe), chlorine gas can be off-gassed. The sheer number of different plastic compounds available today make it necessary to consult with our experts on which filtration system would be best to fit your company’s needs.
