The Purex Fume Extractor with the MAX factor.

The FumeCube MAX, manufactured by Purex International Ltd of Rotherham UK, has a variety of functions not usually found on other fume extractors of the type. The MAX can be controlled by manual remote control or 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, laser marking, gluing, chemical handling and many others produce dust and fumes. These fumes (if inhaled) can be hazardous to health and so a suitable fume extraction solution is definately required.

To solve this need, Purex have developed the enhanced FumeCube MAX. The FumeCube MAX is a compact, quiet and portable fume extraction system that can be connected to a variety of machines or extraction arms.

The unit 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 patented Labyrinth pre-filter to remove larger particles and then through a 2-stage filter system which removes harmful submicronic particles and gases before clean, filtered air is returned to the workplace.
