ProtectoAir is a BGIA approved mobile fume filter type UPF-BIA class W3 incorporating a separator. This mobile unit weighs only 130 kg and is supplied on swivel castors for manoeuvrability. A heavy duty long life mobile fume extractor for use with unalloyed steel, precious metals, galvanised material and aluminium. Due to its manual cleanable filter the ProtectoAir is perfect for processes where large amounts of fume are generated.


SifVac twin motor unit for double operation SifVac is an ideal modular unit that can be modified or purpose-built for specific applications to support the extraction of fumes and dust directly at the source A must for limited spaces that require a compact unit with a small footprint. When filtration efficiency is needed, the SifVac will return clean air back into the workplace. 230V, powered by a powerful single-phase motor 110V also available Metal pre-filter stops sparks All models feature an M-class filter for high efficiency Integrated filter cleaning system removes the ongoing cost of filter disposal. The SifVac filter can be manually cleaned and the filtered material captured in a bin Automatic stop/start available Castors for easy manoeuvrability Multiple configurations available including a twin motor unit for double operation and a brushless turbine motor for a continuous-rated, maintenance-free solution Choice of 15 or 20 litre detachable dust collection containers Optional brush kit (means SifVac can also be used as vacuum cleaner to clean up the workshop at the end of the day) Suitable for use with the SifGun Fume Extraction Torch, a MIG Welding Torch with integrated extraction at the nozzle which eliminates the fumes before they enter the breathing zone

The ProtectoCube product line is a filter unit equipped with filter cartridges applicable for nearly every task in the area of fume and dust filtration. The polluted air is extracted by means of the ventilator and guided towards the filtering section. The toxic particles are deposit on the surface of the filter cartridges. The cartridges are cleaned automatically by compressed air. The particles deposited on the cartridge are detached by the compressed air blast and reach a dust collecting tank. The cleaned air is recycled to the working space without any heat loss.


Room monitoring system with Wi-Fi. Records, depicts and acts on the current values of room temperature, humidity, particulate pollution and volume levels. Temp -10C to +60C, Humidity 10% to 95%, Fine dust 0 mg/m3 to 30mg/m3, (precision +/- 0.1mg/m3), Noise level 40 db to 140 db.
