What is an air scrubber?

Air scrubbers draw in contaminated air, filter it, then exhaust clean air back into the room.

What is a negative air machine?

Negative air machines create a negative pressure environment by drawing in contaminated air from from a controlled area, filtering it, and exhausting it out of the controlled area.

How much area can an air scrubber/negative air machine cover?

Extract-All carries several products capable of air scrubbing and negative air applications.
• S-987 Air Scrubbers & Negative Air Machines can clean a room up to 1,260 ft² once every hour
• SP-400 Air Scrubbers & Negative Air Machines can clean a room up to 1,500 ft² once every hour
• SP-800 Air Scrubbers & Negative Air Machines can clean a room up to 2,000 ft² once every hour

What is a cabinet ventilator and why should I install one?

Cabinet and enclosure ventilators will positively pressurize and filter everything from machinery electrical enclosures to computer wiring storage closets. Multi-stage filtration cleans and cools enclosures so sensitive wiring and instrumentation remains in peak operating condition.

When should I use a downdraft table rather than a fume extractor with an arm?

It can be beneficial to use a downdraft table when perfoming applications like sanding, welding, and grinding. Extact-All Downdraft Tables will draw contaminants (i.e. dust, fumes, smoke) down and away from the operator’s breathing zone.

Can I use my downdraft table for painting?

Downdraft tables can be used to capture fumes from light touch-up painting. However, downdraft tables are not meant to capture or filter paint and may cause damage to the filters or unit.

Can I use a dust collector for other applications that don’t involve dust?

The DC-1000 is designed for the effective removal of smoke, dust, fumes, and other airborne contaminants from a wide variety of industrial and other applications, including: grinding, welding, bag-filling operations, routing, metalworking.

Where can I mount my extractor arm?

Extractor arms can be mounted on wall or ceiling.

How far should the capture hood be away while welding?

The extractor arm should be positioned about 1 ft. away from the welding point to ensure that all fumes are extracted.

How often should I replace my filters?

Filter type, type of material being collected, concentration level, process temperature, ambient temperature, humidity level, etc. all have an effect on filter life. That being said, filters should typically be replaced every 2-6 months, depending on frequency of use.

Can I purchase replacement filters from a hardware store, or other aftermarket source?

While you could find after-market filters that will fit into our systems, we highly recommend that you use the filter media the systems were designed with. Our research and development team spends countless hours evaluating different filter media to determine the best quality, efficiency, and fit for our systems. Also, the use of after-market filters will void the warranty on your system.

How should I dispose of used filter media?

That depends on the composition of the captured contaminants. Please follow your local and state regulations.

How can I determine when to change my filter media?

Activated carbon media in adsorption modules should be changed when noticing odor. For very light chemical vapor and intermittent applications, the activated carbon could last 6-12 months. For heavier chemical vapor removal applications, we recommend the filter media be replaced every 3-4 months. If you would like a more specific recommendation, please provide details of your specific application to one of our application specialists.

How do I determine which filters I need?

Choose an adsorption module with activated carbon for chemical fumes, gases, odors, or vapors. Choose a primary particulate filter for applications with fine particulates such as dust, smoke or mist. For applications that have both visible particulate and gaseous vapors, we offer multi-stage filter set-ups. Choose a combo filter package that consists of either a HEPA or cell filter, with an activated carbon after-filter.

Can I purchase a longer extraction arm or hose?

Yes, 20′ rolls are available for purchase for most arm/hose sizes.

What can fume extractors be used for?

Fume Extractors can be used to capture and filter a variety of contaminants such as vapors, dust and smoke. Mulit-stage filtration provides the appropriate filter media to handle specific applications

Why install an oil mist collector?

When it comes to machining operations, there are potential health hazards and risks associated with the oil and water based cutting fluids that are used as coolants and lubricants. Metalworking applications such as cutting, sawing, polishing, and grinding along with the use of these cutting fluids produces a mist that is sent airborne. This mist can pose great health risks resulting from long term exposure. Facilities also are at risk of physical hazards to the worker such as slippery floors. Proper containment of floatation mist is essential to a safe working environment.

How do oil mist collectors work?

Oil mist collectors operate by collecting a contaminant-laden airstream into the collector’s inlet plenum, which is designed to drop out large mist or other particles. The airstream then turns and passes up through a multi-stage filter system while the clean air is exhausted through the top of the unit.
