A portable fume extractor is best for companies where welding is sporadic and less intense. According to requirements, you can choose fume extractors with different power capabilities and filter surfaces. Let’s take a closer look at the WORKY models specifically designed for fume extraction.

A portable fume extractor is a trolley, i.e. mounted on wheels: the WORKY trolley units are designed to make it easier and faster to move the extractor unit from one work area to another. The fumes generated by the welding process are sucked through the articulated arm positioned on the trolley and reach the filters.

Trolleys are an ideal solution in cases where filtered fumes can be re-emitted into the environment.
