The FCA filter units are supplied with three stage filtration as standard:

  1. First stage of filtration using a polyester or paint stop filter 
  2. Second stage for finer filtration using a synthetic filter
  3. Final stage utilising the thin layer of activated carbon cartridges for efficient fume absorption
