Wall-Mounted Fume Extractors, Arms & Blowers
Remove Welding Fumes From Your Shop
Welding fumes are a serious workplace hazard if left unmanaged. Companies, regulatory agencies and employees are increasingly seeing the value and safety benefits of properly capturing and filtering toxic weld fumes. The primary objective of any weld fume control system is to capture the fumes at source, protecting the welder’s breathing zone and allowing them to work without having to wear a cumbersome respirator system. Wall Mounted fume extractors allow fabrication shops to cost effectively mount air cleaners on a wall, column or ceiling mount configuration, saving valuable floor space for employees and production equipment in confined floor space environments.
Choosing the right weld fume collection system
Welding fumes are typically captured using an extraction arm to capture smoke directly above the welding arc. Different arm options include articulated capture arms which allow operators to fully extend an arm horizontally while maintaining its position. Telescopic capture arms are well suited for confined space and weld booth applications since they can extend and retract in length proving a flexible solution for many applications. Fume Tracker extractor arms allow operator’s hands free capture at source as the tracking arm follows the welding arc without the need for manual repositioning.
Benefits of Filtering and Recirculating Weld Fumes
There are many advantages to capturing, filtering and recirculating welding fumes rather than exhausting them outside:
- No exhaust ductwork (lower setup and installation cost)
- Lower energy costs (Especially in heated or air conditioned buildings)
- Compliance with environmental and local regulatory guidelines
- Easy to reposition without a fixed ducted system
- Protecting workers and the community from dangerous fumes
