maximizing the work environment

The Filter 1 Benchtron Downdraft Workstation removes dust, fumes, and smoke from sanding, grinding, buffing, or welding of metals, composites, fiberglass, plastics, or wood. The Benchtron meets OSHA requirements for respirable dust down to .05MG/M3, with adjustable suction velocities of 150 to 800 FPM in the "working zone." High-efficiency filters remove 99.9% of all particles 1/2 micron and larger. The unit features automatic self-cleaning, fluorescent lighting, and the Filter 1 Regain Air, "Push/Pull" technology pioneered by Clean Air Consultants to provide a blanket of clean air in the "breathing zone."

The standard design includes a 3 phase TEFC motor with starter and rubber vibration mount, a magnetic gauge, and sound insulation to less than 78 dB. The Filter 1 Benchtron is available in configurations of one work surface or two, for sitting or standing.

The “Super Bench” Advantage

A  best selling Clean Air Consultants' product, the Filter 1 Benchtron Workstation offers the following advantages over the standard industry downdraft table:

A portion of the clean, filtered air is returned through a plenum across the top of the station to form a "Clean Air Curtain", pushing the contaminants away from the worker's breathing zone.

With large diameter, backward-inclined airfoil blower wheels, the Filter 1 Benchtron provides consistent velocity across the work surface, even for stations up to 12 feet long.

High-grade plastic panels or moveable clear vinyl curtains contain the contaminants within the workstation environment.

Every Filter 1 Benchtron station is built with leg room so workers may sit or stand.

Source capture is maximized by pulling dust down and away from the worker breathing zone.

Optimized for the size of the operation, amount of available shop space, and number of workers, the Filter 1 Benchtron may be single or double (back-to-back), up to 48 inches deep, and up to 12 feet long. In a large capacity unit with dual worksurfaces, industries can gain the advantages of the Filter 1 Benchtron features and performance at a price that is competitive with a multiple of cheaper, lightweight downdraft tables.

High-efficiency cartridge filters are vertically oriented for optimal loading and cleaning, as well as longer filter life.

Clean Air Consultants customizes the  Benchtron for special needs, including features such as a slotted crane roof, a pneumatic turntable for lifting and spinning parts, or an adjustable up-and-down table.
