FumeCube - Enhanced Fume Extractor Hits the Market

The enhanced FumeCube, manufactured by Purex International Ltd of Rotherham UK, has been launched with a variety of new functions including remote control and machine communication interface to make the FumeCube one of the most fully featured, compact and quiet fume extractors on the market.

Applications such as soldering, gluing, chemical handling and many others produce dust and fumes. These fumes (if inhaled) can be hazardous to health and can cause illnesses such as occupational asthma, rhinitis, headaches and nausea.

Regulations such as COSHH, NIOSH, OSHA and others around the world stipulate that it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that workers are protected from hazardous substances such as solder fume, laser smoke, chemical vapour and many others.

To protect workers from hazardous fumes and to help ensure the employer complies with health & safety regulations, Purex have released the enhanced FumeCube Fume Extraction System. The Purex FumeCube is a compact, quiet and portable fume extraction system that can be connected to either one or two flexible extraction arms. The arms can be attached to a bench using clamp brackets and the integrated airflow valve supplied.

The FumeCube is precision made from stainless steel and features a powerful blower to draw contaminated fumes away from the workers breathing zone; the fumes are then passed through a 3-stage filter system which removes contaminants and returns filtered air to the workplace.

The FumeCube is now one of the most fully featured, compact fume extractors on the market with features such as fully automatic flow control and quick change filters plus remote ON/OFF and machine interfacing options.

New Features

A remote on off switch for a Purex fume extractor

Remote ON/OFF switch (optional)
Now you can easily switch your FumeCube on or off from up to 5m away. This is particulary useful if your fume extractor is tucked away under a bench or in a cupboard where it cannot easily be accessed. This feature is also useful if the work you do is not continuous e.g. intermittent hand soldering as you will be saving energy by turning the FumeCube off between use.

Machine Interfacing Link (optional)
This cable allows you to connect your FumeCube to another machine, for example a small laser. Then, when the laser starts the FumeCube switches on and when the laser stops the Fumecube switches off automatically. The FumeCube can also signal your interfaced machine if the filter alarm is triggered.

  • A one or two arm, easy to fit connection kit with;
