During welding applications, harmful fumes and smoke generate and transmit into the air stream. Welding fumes contain metal oxides from project materials and are generally smaller than 0.1 µm making them virtually invisible to the naked eye.
Because welding fumes consist of submicron size particulate, it's easily respirable and targets the bloodstream, central nervous system, and kidneys. Long-term exposure to weld fumes can result in various health issues.
Welding fumes also settle on floors and fixtures raising the danger of employee injuries and equipment malfunction. If not protected by high-performance welding fume extraction, machine operators and surrounding employees become at risk.
Welding fume extractors remove smoke and vapors from the air stream to prevent contaminants from entering breathing zones. Weld fume extraction systems also improve air quality and help attain a higher quality work environment by limiting the number of accidents and production issues.
Welding fume exposure is closely regulated due to the severe health and safety risks associated with it. To ensure the safety of machine operators, it's critical to implement welding fume extraction systems in work environments where welding equipment is being operated.
We offer a comprehensive range of FumeXtractors solutions for welding fume and smoke removal. The FumeXtractors product lineup features fume arms, portable fume extraction systems, wall-mounted fume extractors, wet and dry downdraft tables, grinding tables, welding booths, and more. Each detail that goes into every FumeXtractors system has been carefully selected by industry experts to ensure 100% satisfaction.
When choosing a weld fume extraction system, it's crucial to evaluate and identify the work practices, hazards, and consumables relevant to your welding applications. This ensures that exposure remains below acceptable limits.
