Flextraction Ltd, has launched the TEKA ‘filtoo’ – a new mobile suction and filtering unit. Flextraction, a manufacturer and supplier of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) products, is the sole representative for TEKA GmbH in the UK.
German manufacturer, TEKA, has designed the devices specifically for the local extraction of fumes, dust and gases found in a variety of applications. Most commonly, these are welding, bonding, gluing, brazing, soldering, laser welding and restoration.
The 1,3kW, 230V or 110V/50Hz BIA approved ‘filtoo’ device is ready to ‘plug and go’. It works by taking in polluted air through the suction hood and hose into four 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. Thereafter clean air is emitted to the workshop through an outlet grill towards the back of the unit.
The device benefits from a fan capacity of 2,500m³/hr as well as a low operating noise level of 72Db(A). The company offers next day delivery and consumers may choose between a 3mm x 150mm diameter self-supporting extraction arm or a flexible hose for attaching to a processing application.
Other features include large access doors for easy filter changing, an operating hours metre and an audible alarm to alert the user when filters or casters need changing. The device weighs 80kg and measures 580mm (w) x 580mm (d) x 900mm (h).
