PRODUCT IMPROVEMENT –
New Swivel Design on the Bernard FILTAIR Fume Extraction Gun
The improved swivel design on the Bernard® FILTAIR™ fume extraction MIG gun now uses threads to retain the vacuum hose and eliminates the front band-it clamp from both amperage models. This redesign will improve performance and avoids replacing the hose clamp with a larger head.
The new design threads into the vacuum hose and cannot be removed unless the hose is cut to remove it from the threads. Removing the front band-it clamp also eliminates the possibility of the clamp getting snagged on other equipment, gloves, clothing, etc.
