We’ve been using a fume extractor in order to filter the smoke generated during press purging. There have been some issues where the activated carbon dust has continually saturated the internal filters, meaning the extractor is capable of running for only a few hours before leaking black smoke. We’d hope to achieve a few purge processes at least. We have done a little research on how to handle activated carbon and we have addressed this issue by rinsing the carbon to rid majority of the material’s dust. We are curious if there are other filtering means anyone would suggest when dealing with Rapid Purge R5000?

Have you considered using a product that does not require activated carbon filtering? There are many products out there that do not release ammonia gas during purging.
