Smoke from a soldering work piece is rising up toward the machine operator. A welder holds a solder tool in one hand and a piece of metal in the other.

Soldering Fume Extraction

Soldering is used to form a permanent connection between components. The soldering process joins two (or more) workpieces by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint.

The dangers of soldering fumes are caused by the flux. Soldering relies on the flux to clean pre-joined surfaces and increase the flow of solder to create a quality joint while preventing oxidation.

The soldering process generates fumes and particulate that present health and safety hazards if not properly removed. When soldering fumes are not captured at the source, they enter the air stream and create a high risk of overexposure. Soldering fume also accumulates in the work environment, increasing the risk of employee injury, equipment malfunction, and lost production time.

Without appropriate soldering fume filtration, wave solder, reflow, selective solder, and conformal coating operators are at risk of skin and eye irritation, allergies, bronchitis, sinonasal cancer, and carcinogenic heart and lung diseases.

Soldering applications must be equipped with fume extraction systems to meet regulatory guidelines and extract contaminated air at the source. For more information about FumeXtractors soldering fume removal systems, get in touch with us today.
