New Product Provides Solution for Fume Extraction Directly on the Workbench

SPARKS, MD--(Marketwired - Aug 8, 2016) - Weller, a global brand of Apex Tool Group known for innovative soldering solutions, today announced the availability of its Zero Smog® EL. The unit, which provides fume extraction for up to two workplaces and features an H13 HEPA filter for long filter life, is constructed to optimize both workplace safety and economical efficiency.

Weller puts health and safety first, and their fume extraction units use the highest quality filters that are best suited to their users' applications. The Zero Smog EL provides clean, reconditioned air with a combo ultrafine H13 HEPA / 10 percent active carbon foam filter that's 99.95 percent efficient at capturing .3 µm, plus low volume gas. It also includes a M5 dust pre-filter that captures 40 percent to 50 percent of particles up to 100 µm. The Zero Smog EL helps keep workers healthy, increasing productivity and reducing absenteeism.

Also keeping customers' operational costs top of mind, the Zero Smog EL features a maintenance-free brushless turbine, energy-saving air recirculation, a simple filter replacement process and an optional remote control.

"Inhaling hazardous smoke and fumes in the workplace poses serious dangers and health problems over time," said Glenn Schindo, director of sales for Weller North America. "The Zero Smog EL is able to optimize operating conditions for workplaces, ensuring maximum health protection for users, while providing an economical way to eliminate polluted air."

Compatible with other Weller fume extraction systems, the Zero Smog EL has a blower capacity of 220 m3/h and a high level of extraction power of 2,500 Pa, offering an ideal filtration solution for light-duty volume extraction applications.

The flexible and adjustable Easy-Click 60 arms guarantee an effective adjustment to the bench. It includes Weller Easy-Click 60 connection ports and four speed adjustments for optimum blower control. With easy installation, the Zero Smog EL is ready to use in less than four minutes.
