Art No: BV-FP – Heavy Duty Downdraught Bench

Heavy Duty Downdraught Filtration bench to contain and filter for a cleaner, healthier working environment within dental labs, electronic design and rework, pharmaceutical labs, design and technology, science in education and more……

For use in numerous situations where external venting is impractical but where contaminant capture and filtration is necessary.

Due to price variations depending on filter specification’ please contact our sales team for exact prices.


Applications include the filtration of fumes, vapour and particulates emanating from:

  • Monomers, adhesives, hazardous powders/particulates,
  • conformal coatings, solvents, resins, sealants, solders, welding/grinding
  • particles and dusts, sanding/refinishing etc.


The BV-FP range is of heavy duty downdraught benches are of quality finish and well suited to installation in both continuous industrial production applications and those where the environment demands a higher grade appearance, such as, laboratories, testing houses, electronics etc. Stainless steel versions are available for clean room or food grade applications.

It is suitable for surface loads up to 150kg. Higher loadings can be accomodated on request.

Optional accessories include: Remote fans for ducting to external vent system, electronic speed control, enclosures, “hours run” meter and castors to enable the bench to be easily moved around the work space.


These units are designed for immediate operator protection from concentrations of airborne contaminants whereby all gases, fumes, vapours and particulates placed on top of the unit are drawn into the intake filters. Cleaned air is exhausted at the base of the unit.

Filter sets include:

A: Non Sparking Dusts, H: Fine non sparking dust B: Very fine non sparking dusts, L: HEPA filtration E: Low volume fume, J: Fumes in High Volumes, R: Special Duty Fume, S: Solder fumes C: Dust with some sparks

Through the process of filtration, adsorption and dilution, operator exposure to potentially hazardous substances is vastly reduced or eliminated.

Filter sets J and R use deeper filters and lower powered fans to increase filter dwell time and increase contaminant removal.

Demonstrating adequate control of the risks to the health of employees students and the general public, from dusts, powders, mists, fumes and vapours is the fundamental requirement of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health(CoSHH). For LEV information for employers visit the HSE website.
