Dewalt has come out with a new hanging air filtration system, DWXAF101, that is designed to clean the air of dust and particulates created during woodworking operations.
The Dewalt air cleaner has a 2-stage filter design, and IR remote control with speed selection and timer functions.
It is also advertised as having a built-in air quality sensor for automatic operation.
The first filter is said to be of medium efficiency, and can collect more than 40% of particles down to 0.3µm. The second is a high efficiency H11 HEPA filter, capable of capturing more than 95% of particles as small as 0.3µm.
- 200/350/400 cubic meters per hour airflow
- 105W rated power
- 6.6 ft power cord
- 64 dB maximum noise level
- Measures 20″ x 15.9″ x 10.2″
- Weighs 20.9 lbs
- Remote has 16.4 ft control distance
It also features a folding handle for easier portability, for users that choose to place the filter on a workbench or shelf.
The air filter comes with chains and screw hooks for ceiling-mounting.
This is a somewhat small air cleaner, and relatively light. It won’t cycle the air as quickly as larger air filters, such as the Jet AFS-1000B ($400 at Amazon).
But, its smaller size makes it more portable, and it has a HEPA-rated filter. The product description says that the medium efficiency static cotton filter is cleanable, but there’s no mention about where to get a replacement HEPA filter.
At the highest of the 3 settings, the maximum airflow is 400 cubic meters per hour, which converts to around 235 CFM.
