High volume application
The Foster Works X-300A was designed specifically for heavy duty MIG welding applications. As enforcement tightens around welding fume capture, so will the need to capture the maximum amount of fume possible with on gun extraction. Top end extractor flow rates & high efficiency MIG torches will come increasingly into focus in the future. This unit is fitted with a high efficiency M class filter & a HEPA filter with activated carbon, removing gas & ozone fumes.
The X-300A model couples to the top specification Binzel RAB HE(high efficiency) & Translas MIG torches, which are available in both air & water cooled versions.
