Cutting perspex generates hydrocarbons. The main purpose of this project was to filter these out to ensure a clean working environment. This project describes my solution to this problem using
- Activated Carbon granules
- Air filters
- Nuts & bolts
This is currently a work in progress nearing completion so full details will follow shortly.
- Height 300 mm
- Width: 300 mm
- Depth: 110 mm
In final development stages.
All hardware and electronics are complete.
Software is almost complete.
Documentation & downloads are currently a work in progress .. but coming soon!
