AD Base 3

A compact installation for the laser industry.

The AD Base 3 is designed for the smaller Universal Versa Laser. The dimensions of the unit allow the Versa laser to fit perfectly onto the extractor, effectively doubling it up as a workstation.

The unit is also offered with an onboard air compressor to provide the laser with its air assist requirements and comes complete with an extraction hose kit and compressor link up on compressor models.

Key features of the AD Base 3

DeepPleat DUO pre filter

DeepPleat DUO pre-filter

This pre-filter comes in three main sizes and incorporates a massive drop-out chamber and large volume area within the base of the filter. Above the drop-out chamber but still within the housing there is a sealed 200mm deep pleat layer of F8 media giving an impressive surface area.
HEPA filter technology

HEPA filter

BOFA uses mini pleat design HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters which are tested and certified to a minimum efficiency of 99.995% down to 0.3 microns and 95% as small as 0.1 microns. They incorporate a series of webbing between the pleated media. This feature not only has even spacing for full filter coverage between each pleat but also helps to alleviate the possibility of airflow vibration or collapse.
AFC technology

Automatic flow control (AFC) Technology

Automatic flow control (AFC) allows the operator to pre-set the correct airflow rates for the specific application, subsequently helping to maintain the airflow. This generates lower noise levels and helps to protect the more expensive HEPA filters.
RFA technology

Reverse flow air (RFA) technology

The RFA technology feature causes a fall in velocity and air direction change. Larger particulate falls out of the airstream into the filter’s drop-out chamber. With less particulate entering the filter media the filter life is significantly increased, helping to enhance filter capture performance and help ensure longer life.
ACF technology

Advanced carbon filter (ACF) technology

ACF helps to capture and filter potentially hazardous fumes. Contaminated air must remain in contact with the carbon bed for a period of time sufficient to help ensure that no contaminants or odours are emitted (‘dwell time’). Our filters have been developed to help capture contaminants and odours, helping to eliminate the risk of bypass and/or tunnelling.
Patented Technology
