BOFA Fume Extractors for 3D Printing

3D printers are known to produce a number of byproducts during operation. Common 3D printing filaments such as ABS and PLA are known as high emitters of ultra-fine particulates (UFPs), while nylon and PCTPE are known for high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC) concentrations. Once airborne, particles and noxious fumes are easily absorbed into the lungs where they can enter tissues and cells.

Proper Material for ESD Cleanroom Gloves

ESD cleanroom glove materials have reduced NVR (non-volatile residues) levels such for better electrical conductivity. Meanwhile, dedicated ESD fabrics are often not viable for cleanroom use, as they tend to shed particulates at a much higher rate than latex, nitrile, or vinyl gloves.

Ethanol Purity, Grades, and Extraction Techniques

This post covers the unique characteristics of high purity ethanol for commercial cannabis extraction. We’ll outline methods that improve batch efficiency, reduce terpene loss from decarboxylation, and minimize residual solvents. In large-scale extraction environments, closed-loop systems and pure, undenatured 200 proof ethanol allow more complete solvent removal.
