Fume Extractor for Medical Equipment Manufacturing: Adhesive & Cleaning Processes
WHAT THEY DO
This company manufactures medical equipment for Magnetic Resonance (MR) systems.
“[We] own two Model 450 [Floor Sentry Double] Fume Extractors. One is used to control fumes in an adhesive application process and the other is used to control fumes in a product cleaning process.”
TYPICAL HOURS OF USAGE
“[We] use each extractor 4-6 hours per week.”
BEFORE & AFTER
“Prior to using the Model 450, our adhesive application process was located far from our production line because the fumes were very strong. The use of the Model 450 allowed us to move the process back to our production line and has dramatically improved process flow.
Our product cleaning process is now done regularly without complaint from our production team members regarding the strong fumes.”
“Our operators love the extractors; they are quiet and very effective. The easy-to-use variable speed control is a great feature and the adjustable flex arms are easy to adjust and stay in place.
Our operators were a little resistant at first, but that quickly changed once they learned how easy the machine was to use and how effectively it removed the fumes from our production area.”
