The Hakko FA-430 Fume Extraction System: A Quiet & Powerful Solution for a Contamination-Free Work Area

When working at a soldering station there is a potential for the creation of dangerous fumes—you'll need a fume extraction system to remove contamination from the air. Hakko's FA-430 Fume Extraction System (Hakko's quieter and more compact replacement for their discontinued HJ3100 Fume Extraction System) is the perfect choice.

The Hakko FA-430 Fume Extraction System is ESD-safe and features 3 airflow settings (low, medium, and high) and a built-in filter replacement notification function (the system detects fan speed and notifies the operator that it's time to replace the filters via lights on the front panel). The two interior filters (a pre-filter and a main filter) use three filtering stages to remove contaminants from the air and return the purified air to the work area with a filtering efficiency of 98% @ 0.3μm.

The FA-430 Fume Extraction System is a vastly improved unit compared to the HJ3100 it replaces. Boasting quieter operation (44 dB vs. 59 dB), lower power consumption (120 W vs. 350 W), and a lighter, compact footprint (16.5 lb. vs. 18 lb.) the FA-430 is a powerful solution to fighting contaminated air for your soldering applications.

Other improved features and benefits of the Hakko FA-430 include:
  • Max. airflow: 1 port: 4.1 m3/min (145 cfm), 2 ports: 4.7 m3/min (167 cfm)
  • Dimensions: 13" W x 14.4" H x 13.5" D (330 mm x 366 mm x 343 mm)
  • Static pressure: 1500 Pa (0.44 in. Hg)
  • Motor Type: Brushless
The FA-430 is compatible with existing HJ3100 duct kits or the new free-standing ducts kits (model numbers C1571 and C1572—duct kits not included). The unit uses its own main (A1586) and pre (A1585) replacement filters.
