Extraction of welding fumes

Extraction of welding fumes

The welding process, in all its versions, always produces fumes and fine suspended dust.

Failure to extract these fumes creates an unhealthy and unproductive environment that is totally unsuitable for the technicians who have to perform their daily work tasks. In this case, general ventilation systems are not enough to solve the problem.

WORKY products for extracting welding fumes remove the toxic fumes effectively before they reach the operator. In the presence of suspended dust and particulates, the filters of the WORKY range clean the extracted air effectively and can also return the air to the environment after deodorization with activated carbon.

Trolley-mounted filters, wall-mounted arms, the sliding systems and all the operating systems installed and running in businesses throughout the world are the best possible testimonial for WORKY products: they are actual examples of how we have improved the quality of life and productivity of the employees of these businesses.

WORKY welding fume extraction systems lend themselves to the needs of different production sectors, in particular automotive aftersales and industrial.

 

Systems for automotive and workshops

In workshops, body shops and car and motorcycle repair centres, right up to the large parts production centre, welding fume extractors intervene during the processing of sheet metal or metal components of the vehicle. The aim is twofold: to eliminate any health risks for mechanics working very close to the welding machine, and to create a cleaner, tidier and more organized workplace, with benefits for the overall productivity of the centre.

The extraction of welding fumes can be made in two different ways:

  • with fixed extraction and ventilation systems;
  • with mobile extraction systems (movable welding fume extraction units).

Industrial plants

Local extraction of fumes is the most recommended method of fume control in the welding industry. 

In industries (manufacturers, mechanical workshops, specialized laboratories, shipyards, assembly lines, etc.), where the production of fumes is more intense and constant, an industrial vacuum cleaner for welding fumes is the only tool capable of preventing harmful emissions from reaching the operator's airways. 

WORKY manufactures extraction systems to be placed above the welding benches, for a reduction of pollutants contained in the welding, using different technologies.

Fume extraction systems are thus systematically installed near metal welding (TIG, MIG welding or other) or tinning stations, whether manual or robotized.

WORKY will design and produce the perfect welding fume extractor based on:

  • duration and frequency of the welding processes;
  • operating position and location;
  • general ventilation and air movements in the area.
