Laser filters get clogged really quickly, it’s all the large particles. I know with the :glowforge: filters people put in pre-filters. Basically material that you put at the very top that wears out incredibly quickly, but it catches the majority of the large stuff and is reasonably inexpensive. Sacrificing a pre-filter lets the actual filter last far longer. Does the :aura: filter look like it has enough space to put one of these in?
