Filtower – Stand Alone Filtration System
ESTA’s newly designed FILTOWER Series is ideal for filtration of welding fumes, fine dusts or oil mists where at source extraction is either not possible or efficient.
The Filtower can be used anywhere that direct extraction is not possible (large work pieces that involve constant changes in work location). The Filtower can be easily maneuvered and repositioned quickly and easily using a forklift or crane.
The systems are a plug and play product, their ready-to-go design, requiring no installation or ductwork makes them easy and time efficient to operate. They are offered in a choice of 3 applications and sizes, plus the Eco range.
Legislation states that hazardous substances must be extracted directly at the point of source where possible. However, localised extraction is not always adequate or possible. If a welder fails to position the suction device correctly, smoke particles can still enter the working air. Employees who are not wearing personal protective equipment then breathe in these hazardous substances without any filtration.
The Filtower Series has almost 100 percent filtration efficiency, which can significantly improve air quality. This is the ideal solution for those working in manufacturing, to aid and benefit employee ventilation, in line with health and safety recommendations. Heating costs can be reduced by up to 70% by using a layer ventilation system, recommended by the Employers’ Liability Association.
