Hi,

I really do not understand the use :

generally, an extractor is to take fumes from inside to outside the room ... here it just takes fumes some centimeters away ...

so, you always breathe same "bad" air ...

Nope, there is a filter in the unit (the black material visible on the front) which cleans the air before passing it back out. Standard benchtop fume extractor setup. See here for a commercially made example : https://www.tessco.com/products/disp...&subgroupId=34 I use the same filters as the ones shown there.
