Micro clean air filters are designed to remove airborne dust particles from the air in the workshop. They are compact, lightweight and very quiet in operation. They are capable of running for long periods of time while you work, and for best results, left running for a period after the dust producing activity has finished.
When in operation they quietly clean and filter the air, trapping dust particles in the filter medium. Most woodworkers will have had experience of leaving the workshop nice and tidy, but then the next day discovering a layer of dust has settled on all horizontal surfaces overnight. The micro clean is designed to prevent completely or drastically minimise that phenomenon.
An air cleaner should be used in conjunction with a dust extractor for maximum dust control.
It is recommended that the air in the workshop is filtered by the micro clean 10 times per hour (minimum recommended level is 6 times per hour). Measure the three dimensions to calculate the cubic volume of your workshop, then check which size of air filter is most suitable.
Manufactured in the UK using high quality components throughout. The filter is made of EU4 grade, non-woven, thermally bonded polyester fibres, which means it will filter out 95% of all dust at 2 microns or larger, 80% of dust down to 1 micron and 65% of dust down to 0.4 micron. The filters are low cost and very easy to replace. As a general rule-of thumb filters should be regularly checked and replaced every 6-12 months. The highly reliable motors are Swiss made to a very exacting standard. Thermally protected and most important to woodworkers they are spark proof, so less chance of dust combustion. Ingress protected to IP44 standard.
MC420 has an airflow rate of 400 cubic metres per hour. Therefore it is suitable for a workshop with a volume of up to 40 cubic metres, roughly equal to a single garage. For example: Floor area 6m (20’) x 3m (10’) x height 2.2m (9’).
Designed to be suspended from the ceiling in the centre of the room or located directly overhead of where the dust is produced. Dust contaminated air is drawn into the bottom and side of the filter, through the filter media which traps the dust within, then clean air is expelled out through the vents around the top of the unit. Supplied with hanging chain, 1m power cable and plug.
