OK International launches MFX-2200 Fume Extraction System
Jun 02, 2005
OK International has launched a multi-user fume extraction system designed to support up to eight manual electronics assembly workstations, or to remove particulates and gases from exhaust cabinets and small bench-top wave and reflow soldering equipment.
A 50 per cent improvement in airflow, 300 per cent increase in HEPA filter size and a massive 600 per cent boost in carbon gas filter capacity, are just three of the benefits of OK International's new Metcal MFX-2200 Fume Extraction System (compared with previous Metcal generation systems).
Primarily designed to provide filtration for up to eight manual electronics assembly workstations, the system's improved performance can also be harnessed to remove particulates and gases from exhaust cabinets and even small bench-top wave and reflow soldering ovens.
OK International's Market Development Manager for Fume Extraction, Steve Collier, explained how the company achieved the airflow performance improvements: "During the design of the MFX-2200 Fume Extraction System, our design team focused its attention on fan efficiency. Consequently, maximum airflow and system capacity have both been increased by 50 per cent (compared with previous generation systems) without needing to increase the compact fan motor's power specification.
Other stated features and benefits of the MFX-2200 Fume Extraction System include minimal noise generation, castors as a standard and both analogue and digital control options.
