OK INTERNATIONAL: Fume Extraction System
November 1, 2004
The Metcal brand of OK International has introduced a compact and truly portable two-arm fume extraction system that combines strong fan performance with efficient filtration and quiet, flexible operation. Metcal enlisted the fume extraction expertise of Impell, another OK International division, to develop the BVX-200 Fume Extraction System. The stylish BVX-200 builds on the success of Metcal's existing BVX-100 single arm system. The new unit features the same motor as the single-armed model, but it has an innovative one-stage impeller design that provides more than double the total free-blowing airflow. A proprietary impeller was chosen over an off-the-shelf design to maximize performance while keeping size and weight to a minimum. The result is a truly portable unit that can be easily transported by one person without the strain induced by larger units.
