JBC has just announced what it describes as its smart Fume Extractor FAE for electronics soldering applications. It is said to be capable of removing fumes safely and efficiently. The Fume Extractor FAE2-5A optimizes fume extraction operating only when needed. The FAE automatically starts working when the tool is in use. This function saves power and the life of the equipment as well as the filter.
In addition, an innovative vacuum system integrated into the stand absorbs the fumes when the tool is at rest. This portable system can be used simultaneously in two work areas and guarantees an extraction volume of 290 m3/h (170.7 CFM) and a strong vacuum of 6,1 KPa (0.88 psi).
It contains a compact 3-layered filter (pre-filter M5, H13 filter + activated carbon filter) for removing fumes, gases and even the smallest particles that are produced in different working processes, increasing safety. It also allows fast and easy replacement and effective system maintenance. The unit notifies through both the display and the LED when filters must be changed.
