Metcal Releases New MSA Series Smoke Absorbers

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Jan. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Metcal, part of OK International and Dover (NYSE: DOV), and a leader in benchtop soldering for electronics and industrial manufacturing, announced the launch of its new MSA Series smoke absorbers, which are space-saving compact workbench fans that use activated carbon filters to extract harmful flux fumes and smoke during hand soldering operations.

The Metcal MSA-35L is a versatile dual-position benchtop fan designed for smaller spaces, which can be used horizontally or vertically for almost twice the airflow efficiency.

The Metcal MSA-25U, a smaller unit than the MSA-35L, features a USB plug that is compatible with any standard 5-volt USB power supply.

“The dual-position MSA-35L and the USB-powered MSA-25U are designed to help keep solder station operators safe by drawing smoke and fumes away from the workstation and filtering out impurities,” explains Seerena Wright, Metcal Product Manager. “The MSAs are the perfect addition to any benchtop, even more so when space is limited for soldering operations.”

Both MSA Series smoke absorbers are very quiet when in use, offer easy filter replacement, and are ESD-compliant.
