AER Powered DownDraft Bench (APB) Series

Downdraft Tables, Self Cleaning Cartridge Filters

A very cost effective solution in capturing dust, smoke, fume and gas/vapor contaminants from welding, grinding, sanding, buffing, light plasma, and de-burring operations. The AER Powered Bench (APB Series) will comply with local codes such as OSHA by drawing the contaminants away from the operator’s breathing zone at over 250-feet-per-minute tabletop velocity, the highest in the industry. The APB will meet your demands for clean air quality in your shop using its built-in cost-effective filter self-cleaning system. Due to its large amount of filter area, the benefits are longer filter life and less maintenance.

  • Flame-retardant, 99% cartridge filter efficiency at 0.5 microns

  • Back and Hinged side panels are standard to control contaminant capture, or an optional enclosed booth table top with backdraft airflow
  • Optional spark arrestors offered, metal mesh, water or sand trays
  • Heavy-duty galvanized removable grating tabletop can handle a minimum of 75 lbs. per square-foot part loads
  • Entire table manufactured out of 11- and 14-gauge heavy-duty construction for longer durability and life
  • Several non-marring or bar grating surface options are available to accommodate various parts and applications
  • High-capacity dust storage drawers, quick and easy drawer removal for reduced maintenance
  • Direct drive backward inclined airfoil blower allows for less filter maintenance by producing a prolonged tabletop suction velocity
