BOFA delivers

Innovation in filtration

Exchange filters on-site, without risking a thermal event

Filters are contained within a separate housing, with a robust seal, enabling filter exchange to be completed quickly and safely in a location remote from the process floor. The long filter life significantly reduces the frequency of filter replacement, further increasing productivity.
