Portable Fume Extractors
Airborne Fumes Jeopardize Your Work Environment
Airborne fumes in an industrial workspace have the potential to cause catastrophic health consequences to nearby workers, if the fumes aren’t properly contained and eliminated. Unlike most particle contaminants, fumes and smoke often have an immediate effect on the central nervous system, and can cause health effects ranging from mild headache and dizziness to cancerous tumors. When workplace fumes are allowed to escape into the entire work area employee safety and the equipment are at risk. Many workplaces can benefit from portable machines that can be used to remove these fumes, allowing you to reposition the fume extractor to the fume source.
Dangers of Welding & Soldering Fumes
Welding and soldering are two applications that produce a high level of dangerous fumes that require extraction. They produce a range of different fumes that include hexavalent chromium, Manganese and Nickle fumes. These airborne particles are toxic and dangerous and need to be eliminated with a portable fume extractor.
When soldering two metals together, workers can inadvertently produce fumes such as lead oxide, which creates the risk of lead poisoning. When lead is absorbed into the bloodstream, symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, headache, abdominal cramping and insomnia may be present. A movable or portable piece of machinery will let you remove those fumes from where they’re source rather being confined to do the work where the extractor is permanently installed in your shop.
Benefits of a Portable Fume Extractor
A portable fume extractor is a machine that removes harmful smoke and fumes from the air after soldering or welding, by using suction. Their portability enables use in confined spaces, allowing you to remove fumes at the source without jeopardizing worker safety or the quality of the work. Using a portable fume extractor from Diversitech provides many benefits, including:
- Flexibility in the work environment
- Safety and reliability
- Compliance with all regulatory guidelines
- Range of sizes and features to meet your needs
- Easy maintenance and cleaning
