The A1030460 filter is the sole stage of filtration for the AM 400 BOFA extraction units. The filter housing is manufactured from Zintec Steel and is constructed from a maxi pleat glass fibre with glue bead spacers. This filter has a filter efficiency of 95% @ 0.9um.
The frequency with which you need to change your filter will be determined by the specific application you are using your fume extraction systems for. As a guideline, we recommend that filters ‘in use’ are replaced every 12 months (both pre and combined or bag/HEPA) or when filter indication screen or LED lights state a blockage. Please note, this is a guide only as each filter will depend on the specific application it is being applied to. Take precautions when changing used filters for new ones. Ensure Personal Protective Equipment is worn and consult your local authority for correct disposal of contaminated filters.
The life of the BOFA A1030460 main filter depends on how much soldering is carried out. If for example soldering is performed for 6 hours a day, then a change should be considered after 9 – 12 months.
