Substantially extend the life of your 3D printer nozzles by adding this filter.
Contains the perfect density of filter foam to wipe dust, lint, or other debris from the filament before entering the feed tube and nozzle of your 3D printer. Also has the ideal low drag to not create any feed malfunctions.
The foam structure contains a ultra low anti-static additive to further reduce particles from entering and clogging your nozzles with sludge over time. This additive is permanently bonded to foam structure so it remains inside the foam after cleanings.
Split design allows the filter to snap around your filament before going into the feeder tube. No cutting filament required to install. A simple snap on.
Our filament filters may also be used as a pre-lubrication device for some PLA and exotic plastics that require lubrication. The filter material and case are resistant to mineral, silicone, synthetic and natural lubricants without degrading or dissolving. Only when necessary simply add a couple drops of the desired lubricant to the filter foam and snap over the filament. Afterward, the filter can be washed with dish soap such as Dawn and water to restore it's original properties.
Service life is well over 2000 hours of printing time and extends nozzle life from clogging to several hundred hours over typical nozzle life. Back pressure is also eliminated from partial clogs of the nozzle. The Epic CNC filament filter is a very small investment for huge 3D printing reliability and productivity gains.
Clean debris as necessary by unsnapping the 2 side snaps with a finger nail or small screw driver, use compressed air or duster spray. Depending on your specific environment cleanings may be as frequent as after every 2kg reel, or after 3-4 reels. Remove debris often from the filter for optimal performance and nozzle life.
2 filters are included in this package.
