Based in Brookfield, Wisconsin, Guhring, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of high quality, advanced design cutting tools.
Having spent tens of thousands of dollars over the years for large dust collectors and air cleaning systems, Guhring’s Plant/Facility Engineer Director, Fred Langer, was frustrated. So, Fred decided to find a more economical system that still offered high-quality solutions for smaller applications.
Air Impurities Removal (A.I.R.) Systems, Inc. offered its economical S-987-2A Portable Fume Extractor to handle two of Guhring’s odor-producing operations. Guhring personnel were somewhat skeptical.
Guhring had a fully enclosed, automated laser marking machine and a color-coding operation, both of which produced gaseous fumes. AIR Systems set up its system on a portable caster base, with two inlets. First, one inlet was connected to the exhaust port of the laser marking machine. Next, a self-supporting extractor arm was attached to the second inlet so that the inlet nozzle could be positioned properly. Now, the new system easily draws in fumes from the color-coding operation.
The Extract-All System features three-stage filtration, including a 2-ply polyester panel pre-filter, a refillable adsorption module with activated carbon, and a pleated final filter.
Now, in full operation, Guhring is very satisfied with the Extract-All System’s performance, including its compact design, good suction, high level of filtration, and low maintenance requirements.
