Q. When should I change my filters?

A. We don’t give recommendations because no two applications/environments are the same. We do know that the new ‘200 series’ E10 filter has around 2.5 times the capacity (filter media area) when compared to a set of the old SOL314 units so should last 20% longer.

Q. Why have we dropped the old filters?

A. SOL314 and SOL315 filters were originally face mask filters that we adapted to fit into our panels over 20 years ago. Face mask manufacturers constantly change and evolve their products to suit their market, so, when they move on, we simply cannot obtain these obsolete filters. We have developed our own purpose made ‘200 series’ filters, so supply issues will now be a thing of the past.

Q. What filter grade do I need?

A. We now have two filter options. The new standard ‘200 series’ E10 grade EPA particle filter replaces the old ‘P2’ grade SOL314 and an improved performance ‘200 series’ H13 HEPA filter is also available.

Q. I need a different airflow?

A. Balance Hoods generally need low airflow that won’t disturb sensitive equipment but does offer some protection to operators. We aim for around 20m3/h when we factory set. The new 200 series filter uses a simple applied vinyl mask inside the manifold that enables us to tune airflow to suit different filter types and applications. We can supply modified masks if your application requires different flow levels. Contact us for more details.

We are marketing our ‘Waysafe® 110’ replacement as the new ‘BH550 Balance Hood’. The only difference is the filter and filter mounting, upgrade is simple and we hope that these options make upgrading as painless as possible for users.
