Smoke Absorbers: Different Variants And Typical Usage
Today’s topic will be related to the different manners of absorbing the smoke, produced in process of soldering and rework.
Common mistake – from neglecting or ignorance is founded In Prototyping, small series PCB Mounting or general Soldering, rework activity.
Namely, the smoke absorption. This problem is often found in electronics hobby laboratory. None or not well-ventilated rooms need to be avoided for workplaces when you are using the soldering Iron and flux. If there isn’t another way, on help is coming to the smoke absorbers.
In a common case of their principles of work is staying the fan and active charcoal filter. The AC filter looks like a grate or a rough net, maiden by thin carbon flakes, producing the huge absorbing area.
Let’s start and see the most commonly used “Classic type” of Smoke Absorber:
