Lasers, for example, produce vapours and particles from the material being processed. These can contain hazardous substances such as fine dust. Therefore, an air filter should be used in closed rooms without exhaust air. The Mr Beam air filter helps remove these pollutants from the air before they can be inhaled. 3D printing can also produce harmful fumes and particles, especially when using thermoplastic materials such as ABS or nylon. These materials can melt at high temperatures, releasing toxic gases that can cause respiratory problems and other health problems if inhaled. Our Air Filter helps you to filter these gases and particles out of the air and thus protect your health. So all in all, the Mr Beam Air Filter II helps to make the working environment around lasers or 3D printers safer and healthier by removing harmful particles and gases from the air.

Frequently asked questions about the air filter
How do I connect the air filter?
Please make sure to carefully plug the controller into the designated controller port. Then firmly connect the power adapter to the power socket to ensure a stable power supply. Don't forget to orient the hose correctly and make sure it's pointing up. This step is important to avoid possible problems and ensure smooth functionality.
How much electricity does the air filter use?
The Mr Beam air filter for laser cutters or 3D printers consumes a maximum of 30 watts of electricity.
For which devices can I use the air filter?
The air filter can be used for various devices and applications, including:
3D printer: The air filter can help capture pollutants and particles released during 3D printing. This improves the air quality in the work area and reduces potential health risks.
Soldering Stations: Soldering can produce fumes and fumes that may contain harmful components. The air filter helps extract and filter these fumes to ensure better air quality in the workplace.
Nail polish studios: Fumes and odours are often emitted in nail polish studios. The air filter can help reduce these fumes and improve the air quality in such premises.
Laser cutters, of course.
How often do I have to change the filter?
Filter replacement frequency depends on several factors, including the type of material being cut or machined, the amount of particulates generated, and how long the Air Filter has been in service. It is important to monitor the Air Filter Controller gauge, which shows the filter usage.
Regularly checking the vacuum is a good way to monitor the condition of the filter. If the vacuum rises sharply or the airflow is affected, this is an indication that the filter may need to be replaced.
The service life of the main filter can also be extended by replacing the pre-filter in good time. A pre-filter can catch larger particles and prevent them from quickly contaminating the main filter. Regularly changing the pre-filter allows the main filter to last longer and provide better filter performance.
How can I tell if the filter is full?
There are two signs that the filter is full:
Indication on the display: The external control of the air filter has a display on which information such as the vacuum and the air flow rate are shown. When the filter is full, this will be reflected in the display.
Colouration of the filter: Another indication is the colouration of the filter itself. When the filter is saturated, it may have a brownish tint. This serves as a visual cue that it is time to replace the filter.
It is advisable to regularly check both the display and the filter itself to ensure that the filter is changed in a timely manner and that the air filter is maintaining its optimal performance.
How big can the housing be from which the air filter pumps?
The size of the housing from which the air filter pumps depends on various factors, in particular the working space and external influences. In order for the air cleaner to operate effectively, it is important that the housing be large enough to accommodate the required airflow.
Since the air filter will pump out approximately 0.7m³ per minute, the housing should be of a volume that can handle this airflow without causing restriction or undue stress on the filter. It is recommended to consider the specific requirements of the air filter and manufacturer specifications to determine the correct housing volume.
It is also important that the housing is adequately sealed to prevent air leakage and ensure efficient filtration. A good seal is critical to achieving optimal air filter performance and preventing unwanted air leaks.
How is the air filtered in the air filter?
The air filter is made up of several layers to enable effective filtration of the air.
Pre-Filter: The pre-filter consists of an F7 or F8 filter material and is designed to capture coarser particles such as dust and larger suspended matter. The pre-filter serves as the first line of defence and helps protect the main filter from premature fouling.
Main filter (HEPA filter): The main filter is a high-quality HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter of class H13. This filter has high filter efficiency and is able to capture the finest particles. It plays a crucial role in improving air quality by retaining these harmful particles.
Activated carbon filter: The activated carbon filter is used in addition to the main filter. Activated charcoal is a porous material with a high surface area capable of absorbing gases and odours. This filter effectively removes unwanted odours from the air.
This multi-stage filtration structure allows the air filter to remove a wide range of impurities from the air to ensure cleaner and healthier air quality. The pre-filter captures larger particles, the main filter captures finer particles and the activated carbon filter absorbs odours. Together they ensure comprehensive air purification in the work area.
What functions does the Air Filter Controller have?
The Air Filter Controller has several functions, including:
Adjust speed: The controller allows you to adjust the speed of the air filter. Depending on your needs, you can increase or decrease the speed to adjust the airflow and filter performance.
Show filter status: The controller shows the current status of the filter. The indicator tells you how dirty the filter is and whether it needs to be replaced.
Can I also use the Air Filter Controller with the Mr Beam?
Yes, it is possible to use the Air Filter Controller together with the Mr Beam. The Air Filter Controller is simply connected to the air filter.
The controller allows the extraction to be operated alternately with the Mr Beam and another permitted application. This means that you can use the extraction either to operate the Mr Beam laser cutter or for other applications, such as 3D printers or other laser cutters, depending on your needs.
The Mr Beam is equipped with sensors that can control the air filter to ensure that the filter speed matches the exhaust air pollution. These sensors record the quality of the exhaust air and adjust the filter speed accordingly. This enables efficient air purification while the Mr Beam is in operation. Therefore, the Air Filter Controller is not absolutely necessary for the Mr Beam.
How much air flow does the air filter have?
The air filter has an air flow rate of 0.7 m³ per minute or 42 m³ per hour.
For which laser cutter is the air filter suitable?
The air filter is suitable for most common laser cutters, as long as there are no hot exhaust gases and no burning or glowing particles get into the air filter. This typically includes laser cutters designed for use in hobbyist, educational, or smaller commercial settings.
It is important to note that the Air Filter may not be suitable for large, high-power industrial lasers, which typically require larger airflows and specialized air cleaning systems to handle the resulting exhaust gases.
Before using the Air Filter System, it is advisable to check the specific manufacturer's specifications and laser cutter recommendations to ensure that the Air Filter is compatible and suitable for the intended use.
Is the air filter compatible with the standard extraction arms?
Yes, the air filter is usually compatible with standard extraction arms used in many laser cutters and similar devices. The Air Filter comes with a 62mm hose and a 50mm fitting.
If the extraction arm or application has a different diameter, it may be necessary to use a diameter adapter to make a suitable connection. This adapter makes it possible to connect the hose of the Air Filter to the extraction arm or to the application with a different diameter.
Do I need additional accessories?
Yes, in addition to the air filter itself, other accessories may be required depending on specific needs and the nature of the application. Some possible accessories can be:
Device-specific accessories: Depending on the nature of your application and the laser cutter, specific accessories may be required. This can be, for example, a housing or special attachments or adapters to optimally integrate the air filter into your system.
