Welding Fume Extraction Systems

FumeXtractors offers a complete line of welding and robotic welding units to meet the needs of any application regardless of size or weld fume intensity. During the welding process, toxic gases, fumes, and sparks are developed which can cause severe health risks when not properly controlled. Since welding is the most common industrial process, it's critical that businesses take the appropriate precautions by implementing air filtration and extraction systems. From and to portable extraction systems and arms, FumeXtractors carries reliable, affordable and effective units to ensure a safe, healthy, and efficient working environment.

The extent of how long workers are exposed to welding fumes, along with the type of welding that takes place and how effective your current safety precautions are functioning all emulate the severity of workplace exposure risks. Welding gases aren't typically visible and may not have an odor making them notably hazardous. Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and various oxides of nitrogen are produced from welding flame heat while vapors can be produced by solvents or coatings on metal causing a multitude of health risks after prolonged exposure.
