This is a medium to large workshop filter unit which has the advantage that it can be positioned anywhere in the workshop, either on a bench, a shelf or suspended from the ceiling. The unit is easy to operate and has three speeds simply activated by the push of a button or by using the convenient remote control. It should be mounted away from ventilation and heating vents and is only suitable for non-metallic dust particles. The unit can be positioned either vertically or horizontally to best utilise the space available. It is fitted with a pleated cloth main filter and an electrostatically charged pre-filter. An optional charcoal filter is available which can (a) neutralise odours and harmful organic fumes and (b) refresh the air by removing smoke, dust, bacteria, pollen and other harmful microscopic particles. The machine runs reasonably quietly with noise levels of speed 1: 56 dB. speed 2: 58 dB. and speed 3: 60 dB. Supplied with main filter, electrostatically charged pre-filter and remote control. For best results leave the AFS-500 running for a few minutes to clean the air after your machines have been switched off, or use the built in 2,4 or 8 hour timer options to run the filter after you leave the workshop.

DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYSFor all those people deliberating over buy or not to buy. I purchased one probably 10 years or more ago and it it just keeps plodding on. Admittedly it isn't used every day but it has never let me down and am always amazed what is taking out of the workshop atmosphere. Ok, replacement filters are a bit pricey but what price do you put on your health. I love the fact that I can control it remotely.

Excellent ProductI have been looking for an air filter for sometime, Inew this product was around but the price was putting me of purchasing it. I dredged the internet and found a number of units but in most cases the noise level was slightly higher and the volume of air filtered per hour was slightly lower. In the end I visited the showroom in Nuneaton where an assistant powered up a display unit for me. I was convinced straight away, I purchased the unit and when I powered it up in my workshop I was not disappointed. Great product and service again from Axminster.

Failing after 3 yearsI got this machine around October 2015. Up until recently, it has worked fine and I have been very pleased with it.

Great when it workedGreat when it worked. Stopped working after 3 years. A simple machine like this should run without problem for alot longer. Same problem that stopped mine working happened to a friend's one.

Good for your healthThis shop add-on is very good for your health, for now(a month of heavy use, 10h a day) the machine works flawlessly without any kind of problem. I've read of possible faulty capacitors in control board, so I've already bought spare and more durable capacitors... just in case (but I think that can be related to a poor and old electrical line in some country).
