Employing HEPA* filter! (High Efficiency Particulate Air filter)
Suitable for soldering in laboratory or office environment

HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particles greater than 0.3μm

FA-430 provides excellent filtering efficiency, 99.97% of particles greater than 0.3μm, by HEPA filter.

Aerosol particle diameter range

The Hakko FA-430 Fume Extractor is specially designed for use in the electronics soldering process by extracting the contaminated air directly at the source.
Some processes may involve the use of highly corrosive substances or organic solvents. These processes are not recommended for use with the FA-430.

Filter replacement notification function ensures excellent trapping efficiency can be maintained at all times

No matter how sophisticated a fume extractor is, if the filter is not replaced at the right time, it will not be able to give maximum performance. The FA-430 detects the number of fan rotation and notifies the operator of the appropriate time to replace the filter, guaranteeing a comfortable working environment.

  • Pre-filter

    When the pre-filter is 80% clogged or has been used for 200 hours, the orange indicator flashes on and off.

  • Main filter

    When the 10th pre-filter needs replacing, the orange and red lamps flash on and off.

Quiet operation and powerful suction.

Exhaust noise has been reduced without sacrificing suction performance by the addition of a silencer unit to the exhaust outlet to ensure smooth air outflow. A high-performance motor with 1,500 Pa of static pressure provides powerful suction and quiet operation.

Catch harmful smoke with freestanding ducts and adjustable air volume to suit your working environment

Is your smoke absorber affected by air conditioning? Are you fed up with having to re-adjust ducts after every line change? The FA-430 fume extractor is the answer to your problems.

Airflow adjustment

Three airflow modes are available: High, Medium, and Low. Significantly improve your working environment by using an airflow volume that suits the worksite and the job.

  • Low mode: Not easily affected by the surrounding environment. For use in small, quiet locations.
    (For when low-noise operation is a priority.)
  • Medium mode: For normal use.
  • High mode: For use in locations that are significantly affected by the surrounding environment. (For when suction performance is a priority.)

What do you mean by "surrounding environment"?

Smoke flows in unexpected directions due to a variety of factors; not just because of the influence of air conditioning. High mode is recommended if your worksite is situated near a doorway, in a spot where people continuously pass by, near the exhaust outlet of a large machine, or in a similar location. It is possible to use low mode in laboratories and other places where these kinds of influences are limited.

Freestanding ducts

Ducts can be bent or lengthened as desired and maintain their shape after adjustment, letting you place them exactly where suction is needed. Say goodbye forever to ducts that are long, heavy, and hard-to-handle.

Lightweight and compact, the FA-430 weighs only 7.5 kg. Built-in handles allow the fume extractor to be moved easily, facilitating line changeovers.

  • If the duct is mounted at an angle above the workpiece, it is easily affected by air conditioning

  • If the duct is mounted directly above, it can be difficult to see the workpiece

    If the duct is mounted directly above, it can be difficult to see the workpiece

  • Duct is mounted on the worktable to provide excellent suction performance

Proper installation of the pre-filter

Proper installation

Install the pre-filter inside the frame of the main filter as shown in image 1.
Be sure to check that there are no gaps at the corners as shown in image 2.

Correct installation

Improper installation

If the pre-filter is not installed properly as shown in images 3 and 4, the main filter will degrade its original performance quickly.
