FilterBox 12A

Automatically cleaned for medium to heavier dust & fume applications.

The FilterBox 12A is has a maximum air flow capacity of 1000 CFM (with NEX-HD arm) to maximize weld fume extraction. An integrated silencer ensures quiet operation. Advanced system controls allow for automatic cleaning when air flow is too low. Available either as a mobile unit on wheels or attached to a floor stand. Additional protection from harmful particles, for example, from stainless steel welding fumes, is provided if a HEPA filter is installed.

For dust applications, the unit is cleaned mechanically. For welding smoke it uses a combination of mechanical and compressed air cleaning.

For welding fume applications, compressed air cleaning is required.

Note! FilterBox is not for use in environments where combustible dust or gases are present, and it is not for use in filtering combustible dust or gases.

  • User friendly and superior filter cleaning, mechanical and/or with compressed air for long filter life
