BOFA International, Ltd, a global fume and dust extraction solutions provider headquartered in Poole, Dorset, UK, has launched a new podcast highlighting innovation in portable industrial fume and dust filtration.

‘Filtration Matters’ will engage BOFA’s team in discussions about how extraction system design is helping companies to improve productivity across multiple sector industries including laser, Additive Manufacturing, electronics and printing, while also supporting workplace environmental strategies.

In the first of the series, Josh Evans, an Applications Engineer at BOFA, explains the underlying principles of filtration and how manufacturers can go about specifying technology tailored to their processes.

“Almost all manufacturers need filtration technology to remove emissions from a process and return clean air back into the workplace,” stated Evans. “This not only makes for a healthier workplace, it also helps protect investment in equipment to enhance productivity and avoid unscheduled downtime.”

The podcast is available here.
