Laser marking generates a range of particle sizes from 10 micron upwards so standard cyclone separators are not suitable.
BOFA’s inline cyclone is designed to operate more efficiently at these lower particle sizes.
The cyclone separator has been designed specifically for use with the AD Oracle iQ and is installed between the laser extraction point and the extractor. The airflow generated by the extraction unit powers the cyclone.
ILF 300 / 600
The BOFA inline pre filters have been designed specifically for applications that generate high amounts of dust or particulate.
The filter unit is positioned alongside the main BOFA fume filtration system to increase the overall filter capacity and extend the life of the main, more expensive filters.
A range of application dependent filter types and configurations are available on request.
The BOFA inline pre filter 1000 has been designed specifically for applications that generate high amounts of dust or particulate.
This inline filter unit has a large DeepPleat DUO and is positioned alongside the main BOFA fume filtration system to increase the overall filter capacity and extend the life of the main filters.
ILF Spark Arrestor
BOFA’s ILF Spark Arrestor unit effectively prevents potentially damaging burning particulates, generated during laser marking processes, from entering the fume extraction system.
Hot burning particulate is trapped by the unit’s special metal filter pads, where it remains and burns out, so protecting the fume extraction system.
FireBOX - self extinguishing inline pre filter
In the rare event that a burning ember or spark is drawn into the fume extraction unit, there is the possibility that debris in the filters could ignite. Although any resultant fire would typically be retained within the fume extraction unit, this would cause significant damage and in extreme circumstances the risk may extend beyond the extraction unit. For processes where such risks have been identified, additional protection in the form of an in line firebox is an additional precaution.
