Welding fume extraction
PROBLEMS OF WELDING FUME EXTRACTION PROCESS
Vacuum extraction of the welding process is key to maintaining a clean working environment within the production hall. The filter units we manufacture are ideal for extracting fumes, dust, smoke and aerosols generated during metal welding. Welding fumes contain substances hazardous to human health, such as metal oxides and their alloys, which are PM 2.5 in size and can be harmful to the human body. These welding fume particles can be carcinogenic and cause permanent health problems.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution for the extraction of welding workplaces. The client's production programme, the size of the weldments and the welding procedures must be taken into account. At the same time, sufficient extraction of welding fumes must be ensured so that workers have as little contact with them as possible. For effective extraction in welding shops, neither the type of filter used nor its manufacturer is a decisive factor. The most important thing is to correctly determine the amount of air to be extracted and to design adequate extraction equipment. The closer the extraction is to the source, the better and more efficiently the smoke is captured.
