No. In fact you should NOT be using the HJ3100 to absorb any vapors from mineral spirits or other vapors that are combustible. The Hakko HJ3100 fume extraction system does NOT incorporate a sealed motor assembly and therefore cannot be used to remove flammable fumes/vapors, also known as volatile organic compounds. A spark from the electronics/motor inside the unit may ignite combustible vapors.
The 999-137 filter was replaced with the A1586 Main Filter that is also compatible with the new Hakko FA-430 Fume Extraction unit. The same applies as the FA-430 does not use a sealed motor assembly either.
