Filtrabox Compact X DTF
Portable Fume Extractor for DTF Transfer Printing. Single-blower and high capacity 3 stage Hydrophobic HEPA filtration for excellent fog removal performance in a space-saving format. Great for mid-sized (24”) roll-to-roll DTF Transfer Printing systems. Captures the thick oily fog generated during the curing of the printed transfers. Produce quality transfers for garments and other substrates in a clean air environment – your products and employees will benefit!
3 Stage Filtration: Rigid Separated Filters
Each individual filter has a specific function within Filtrabox’s 3 stages of filtration:
- Polymer Pre-filter: The liquid resistant polymer pre-filter protects the critical downstream HEPA filter from filter clogging ambient dust and liquid fog overload. The filter media is encased in a strong aluminum cartridge to resist
contamination bypass. The high surface area mini-pleat filter media ensures high capacity and efficiency for mid-sized applications.
- Hydrophobic HEPA filter: The Hydrophobic HEPA media not only resists moisture, it is extremely strong and sheds excess liquid to provide the perfect barrier to the DTF Fog. The filter media is encased in a rigid aluminum cartridge to resist contamination bypass. The high surface area mini-pleat filter media ensures high capacity and efficiency for mid-sized applications.
- Gas Filter: The gas filter is filled with pure activated carbon to remove unpleasant odors at the molecular level. 20 lbs of the adsorption media ensure high capacity and efficiency for mid-sized applications.
Why we use individually separated filters HEPA and gas filters vs. combined HEPA/Carbon filters:
Different processes emit different proportions of particles vs. VOC gases. With individually separated filters, each filter can be replaced when it actually is spent. In contrast, in a combined filter where the HEPA and Gas filters are inseparable, the barely used HEPA filter portion may have to be sacrificed because the gas portion is spent (or vice-versa). This is wasteful and less economic.
Why are Rigid Filter Cartridges so important?
Filtrabox systems use high-pressure vacuum blowers to suction the fumes out from the DTF oven and into high-efficiency filters. As the filters load up with contaminants, the negative pressure within Filtrabox increases. The sheet-metal cabinet and seals are designed to resist deformation and air leaks under extreme pressure. Therefore, the filters must also be able to resist deformation to prevent contaminant leakage. All Filtrabox filter cartridges are built tough, using a thick aluminum box structure to resist flex so that the rubber seals can maintain contact with the sealing surfaces. Cardboard cased filters flex and crumple under the pressure and moisture leading to leakage of contaminants.
