Learn how Micro Air® dust collectors, downdraft tables, etc. provide solutions for clean, safe, air in welding processes, capturing weld smoke/fumes, leaving the workplace OSHA/NFPA compliant.

Micro Air's® EXTREME AIR-MAX Downdraft Tables provide a modular, portable and adjustable downdraft work surface ideal for capturing harmful contaminants generated in welding, grinding, soldering, sanding, polishing and many other industrial processes. They offer the flexibility to configure a worktable to exactly meet application needs, space, and worker preference.  XA-MAX Downdraft Tables draw contaminants away from worker vision and breathing zones, increasing work quality and decreasing air quality hazards to workers and equipment in surrounding areas.

Exclusive to MICRO AIR EXTREME AIR-MAX tables is our ROTO-PULSE® cartridge cleaning system that provides for 30-40% better cleaning of the cartridges, therefore extending filter life.  Air is pulsed into a specially designed aluminum rotating tube equipped with pre-drilled holes.  As the air entersthis tube, the force of the pulse causes the tube to rotate.  As the tube spins, air exits the pre-drilled holes resulting in air hitting the entire inside lenth of the cartridge, pulsing dirt particles away from the filter and into the dust collection drawer, for a much more efficient cleaning cycle and increased filter life.
