What is the best air purifier for soldering logic boards

we're going to be expanding our skillsets so we can start soldering logic boards, and we know that we need some form of air purification system.

we'd like to have small air purifiers right by the station, but also we'd like to have a larger air purifier for the entire work space of multiple stations.

Can anyone tell me where to look for information about the best types of air purification systems?

also, we're looking at doing some reflowing as well, so we know that there will be fumes released that need to be cleaned up

dollar, If you are going to have employee's, you are liable for their health and safety, Best to talk to an HVAC engineer/specialist to see exactly what is required by law for your business. The rules can be pretty stringent to prevent illness,etc.

You really can't purify the air, but you can exhaust the dirty air outside!

I would get a stove range hood setup with it vented outside for your work bench which has the rework station as well as the hotplate.

I use a small fan to pull the fumes away from me when I do the small stuff. Mine is so old the company has long since disappeared. Here's one that is on the cheaper side:

Some of the guys have this one:

Which I think is more useful but more expensive.

The charcoal filter these have collect the resin's in the fumes, metal vapors don't really collect in the filter as you need an ionic plate to catch them.

I use a dental lab bench with a built in fish mouth vacuum system.

These can be built into a duct type system. Mine has a sliding door behind it to open or close it. The actual vacuum can be in another room. Then when you slide the door open it activates the system and you get suction only in the location where it is open.
