Health and safety is often neglected in a home shop. I bought 2 of these for my home welding shop and it made a huge difference in air quality and my nose, mouth, lungs are not black. Only problem is the filters last a few hours and the cost is prohibitive if I'm doing heavy welding and grinding. My SOLUTION was to get filters at HVAC supplier by the dozen and for a few bucks I replace them often. I combine a 1" x12"x24" MERV 13 inside (secondry) filter with a 2" thick 12"x24" MERV 9 outside (primary) filter. The 2" outside filter sticks out past the end of the machine but with a strip of wide masking tape to secure it that's ok and being thicker it filters longer. I may even try a 3" outside filter. It costs me about 8$ to replace both filters together and I now have much less dirt in my nose, mouth, and oviously my lungs. The shop is a bit cleaner. My wife is happier that I'm taking better care of my health too. ;)
Too bad I can't include photos of the installation. They work so well I got a third cleaner for the garage!!!
