Zimpure 2 is the first efficient, compact and discrete air purifier specially designed for your 3D Printers. By vacuuming nanoparticles and gas directly in the extrusion nozzle, there is no chance to contaminate your environment.
The Zimpure sucks up nanoparticles and gases directly where they are produced. This product was designed with your health in mind.
Thanks to our new source suction system and our high-grade filters, Zimpure filters 99% of the nanoparticles and more than 90% of the gases released! With Zimpure, you can now print any material without worrying about toxic fumes.
- Download your customized suction head’s file on www.zimple3d.com
- Follow the step by step instructions.
- Print your special tailor-made suction head and start printing safely.
With the help of our growing community, we already have more than 20 customized suction heads available.
One ultra fine particles filter which filters 99.9% of the UFPS released and one gas filter, which filters 98% of the VOCs. The powerful but quiet fan ensures an efficient suction flow allowing more than 99% of the UFPs and 90% of the gases released by the printer to be vacuumed directly into Zimpure. It runs with two high-grade replaceable filters which last 500 hours.
Thermoplastic fusion releases a mix of harmful gases and nanoparticles as you might have noticed by the strong smell when using your 3D printer. It has been scientifically proven that it can contaminate your lungs and bloodstream and cause serious health trouble / cancers / diseases. After a few hours of 3D printing in your house, the concentration of nanoparticles can be 11 times higher than average and the gas concentration up to 20 times.
Zimpure is the must-have
At home, protect yourself and your loved ones from toxic emissions due to plastic fusion.
Zimpure is compatible with most of 3D printers. Download and print your suction head now and you’ll be ready to print safely.
Thanks to our source suction system, students are protected even if they stay very close to the printer.
Protect your employees from this toxic pollution and eliminate the risk of harming their health.
I tested Zimpure in combination with a Genius artllery and anet A8 for 2 years, and it worked without problems.Thank you
We have used the Zimpure 2 + Papa Control with our Prusa MK3S for a year (about 1000 hours of printing) in a small room, always with ABS filament. Before that, one of our employee working in the same room was having frequent head aches after printing large parts and we could clearly smell the ABS fumes in the room. With the Zimpure, the smell is completely gone an no more headaches.
I have been using the Zimpure 2 in combination with a Ultimaker 2+ for over a year now, and I have to say it’s been a great experience using this device. Especially when you print with materials such as ABS or composites (Wood). Previously, my entire room would have smelled like plastic/wood when doing long prints 10+ hours, but with the Zimpure that’s no prolem! Before I had the Zimpure I regularly had failed prints because of warping due to the open window setting at home, but since I own this device, I never had any failed prints due to warping.
I was amazed by the product and shipping time (3 days!). Just Wow, thank you 🙂
Consumption: 15.6W, 12V.
Size: L 204mm, l 159mm, h 164mm.
Air Flow: 70L/min.
Filtration rate: up to 99% for nanoparticles, up to 90% for gases.
With our new injected molded case and acoustic foam filling, Zimpure makes little noise. When your printer is on, you will barely notice any noise from Zimpure.
The filters have been tested to last (at least) 500h (4Kg of ABS).
To get an idea of how long the filter will last regarding your habits, look at your printer’s information section. There you have access to the hour counter of your printer.
We recommend that you write down the hour counter value, and when at +500 hours, change both filters.
2 sets of filters (1000 hours of filtration) cost 34,8€. Note that a set of filters is already installed on your Zimpure.
Additional filters are available on our website!
Because 3D printers release both nanoparticles and gases, we need to use two different filters : A particulate filter (N95), filtering up to 99.9 % of the nanoparticles, and an active charcoal filter (ABEK1), filtering up to more than 90% of the gases (VOC). The filters we use are manufactured by 3M. We’ve tested them in laboratory, they are very efficient. Read more in our study report.
You can throw them in the bin, they can’t be recycled.
We attended the experiments and measurements, and took part in the writing of the study report. Roland Sarda Esteve from the LSCE lab was in charge: the instruments used are not trivial, and we are not qualified to use them.
Our suction heads are made to have the same filtration rate at the same distance from the extrusion nozzle of any 3D printer. We have designed Zimpure to be efficient with all filaments.
We manage the production ourselves, at our facility in Southern France. This way, we can control each stage of the production process and reduce the risk of problems along the way. All our suppliers are ready and standing by to ship the components.
No, both the the silicone pipe and the suction head are lightweight, and the pipe is very flexible: they do not interfere at all with the mechanics of your printer.
No. The airflow rate is so low that it doesn’t affect the overall temperature in the enclosure.
No, we’ve tested it on different printers, with different materials, and printing quality doesn’t change.
In order to make Zimpure efficient, compact, and very silent, 3D printed parts are not enough. Zimpure comes with an injected molded case, vibration absorption foam, acoustic foam, and high quality components that cost a lot if you buy them on your own. Also, we have conducted lots of tests in a laboratory to provide you with an efficient and reliable product. The instruments used for nanoparticles and VOC measurements with the precision we had are rare and expensive.
Contrary to what is usually thought, PLA is also a source of nanoparticle and VOC emissions. Plastic filaments are also never pure ABS or pure PLA. Filaments are made up of a complex mixture of different polymers, in order to provide the best printing quality, layer adhesion, warping resistance, flexibility, and other parameters. Many different toxic compounds can be found from one filament to another. Like most plastics, PLA has the potential to be toxic if inhaled and/or absorbed into the skin or eyes as a vapor or liquid (i.e. during manufacturing processes like 3D Printing).
Yes you can use it with your enclosure. If your enclosure is almost perfectly airtight, you can use Zimpure as a filtration system without the suction head. Just place it inside the enclosure, or run the tube into it. If your enclosure isn’t really airtight, use Zimpure with the suction head.
