Woodturning enthusiasts across the UK who read our previous update on the subject of the sad demise of Microclene and the rise in its place
of Thor Filtration, will be pleased to learn that the latter manufacturer's new range of high-performance ambient air filters is now available through The ToolPost.
A vital development for safety-conscious woodturners
There are more than a few reasons why, whether as an amateur or professional in woodturning, you should take great interest in the news of such filters'
availability. It is now rightly recognised just how crucial it is for woodturners to suitably protect themselves from the effects of dust in their workshops.
Furthermore, no device plays a more instrumental role
in ensuring such protection than an effective and efficient dust extractor incorporating a fine filter. If you are to implement the most suitable dust control system in your own workshop, you will need to have a means
of removing dust at the point at which it is created.
Even this, however, is only the first step of the process – after which, it is vital to consider the additional dust control methods that can be employed to
further maximise protection. This is where the elimination of ambient dust becomes such a key priority if you are to avoid the inhalation of dust in your woodworking workshop, and the health issues that can result from
Enter a new, great British company
We are proud here at The ToolPost to serve as distributors of the high-quality ambient air filter range that has now been released by the British company, Thor
Filtration, filling an important gap in the market left behind by the disappearance of the similar filters once marketed under the Microclene brand name.
An especially great option in this new range for
medium-sized workshops of up to 75 cu. m. capacity is the TF810 model. This filter provides approximately 750 cu. m. per hour of air throughput, which is sufficient to provide the recommended minimum of 10 air changes
per hour in a 75 cu. m. workshop. In a smaller workshop, of course, it will provide more frequent air change cycles, which equates to even greater cleaning efficiency.
Other attractions of this unit include its
compact 'cuboid' form and the wide range of mounting options that it makes possible, without taking up as much space as the style of unit that must be suspended by chains from the ceiling.
Included with the
TF810 are brackets that can be used to mount it flush onto a wall or ceiling, where its rear exhaust vents direct the exhausting air along the wall or ceiling. In the process, not only is air circulation improved, but
uncomfortable draughts for the user are also avoided.
