Tips for Buying the Best Downdraft Table for Your Needs

Downdraft or downdraught tables are a great tool to keep dust or fumes from polluting the air in a workshop, woodworking shop, or manufacturing area. Getting the right downdraft table, however, is not always easy and there are many too choose from on the market, with many available for sale online with a variety of prices and filter combinations. Buying the  best downdraft table for your needs is important mainly because it must remove the specific pollutants that you’re producing or your health could be at risk. You also don’t want to spend money on filters you don’t actually need.

For example, if you are cutting wood, you’re likely producing only larger particles with the small ones in the range of 5-10 microns–that means you usually don’t need to pay for HEPA, just need a good MERV 11-13 range filter. For a welding downdraft table, the same is true, a MERV 14 is probably just fine to remove the fume or smoke being produce. If there are odors as well, you’ll need a carbon filter in the unit as well. However, if welding stainless steel, you’ll need a HEPA filter to remove the hexavalent chromium released in the process. Or, if there are only chemical fumes or odors, you may only need a pre-filter and carbon filter, saving money by not adding the particle filters you don't need.
