Air filtration for fumes from cutting nylon with an electric hot knife
Hi. My friend is running a home business and it involves cutting nylon with a hot knife.
Currently, he is opening door/window and running a fan. However, this is less than satisfactory.
I brought up making a range hood over a work station, but he mentioned the strong odor that occurs at the exit point out of doors already and would rather filter the fumes out.
He did price some fancy filtration system at $2K with a $1K for every time he changes filters. We were thinking that it was overkill for nylon fumes and thought maybe a hepa filter with charcoal filter would be enough, but we are unsure.
If he needs to go spendy, he will as health matters, but if there is a less spendy way to accomplish this, he wants to go that way.
This is about two hours a week of his manufacturing process.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you. -Mike
