New fume extractor brochure from Purex International

A new brochure is now available which details the Purex fume extractor that is required to safely deal with hazardous dust and fume

Many CEMs are increasingly using lasers during the manufacture of PCBs, for example laser drilling systems. They can also utilise wave and reflow or robotic soldering systems as well as traditional hand soldering stations.

The process of lasing a material produces what is known as a 'laser plume' whilst soldering produces a complex cocktail of hazardous materials called colophony. The laser plume can reduce the efficiency and accuracy of the laser by causing beam attenuation whilst both the plume and colophony contain particles and gases which are hazardous to the health of employees, should they inhale them.

To combat this problem Purex International has developed a range of microprocessor controlled extraction and purification systems which remove the laser plume or colophony from the process area and then filter any hazardous particles and gases before returning clean air to the workplace.

A new brochure is now available which details the Purex units and accessories that are required to safely deal with contaminants. It is available for download directly or by calling a local Purex distributor.

Purex also manufacture units which extract and purify fumes that are generated during gluing applications and chemical treatments. Call 01709 763022 for further details.
