Air apparent

Flextraction Ltd, the specialist solution provider for capturing at source all forms of airborne contamination has introduced Type AM 40, AM 80 and AM 120 industrial air cleaners with a high-filtration capability.

The company says these 180, 370 and 750-watt units are designed for industrial use to clean air in workshops, construction sites, equipment stores and offices, where medium polluted air has to be cleaned to ensure the working environment is kept healthy and clean. Each model is supplied in two outlet variants for filtering directly into the room or area, and through a 160mm tube for connecting to a hose. The CE-marked units are said to have a large suction capacity and are fitted with high quality exchangeable multi-configurable filter cartridges.
