Welding Fume Extractors
The mechanical workshop is always at the center of our attention. We have always been designing vacuum solutions to improve the quality of the air and of the work inside the area where mechanical processing takes place. During the processes of treatment of metal surfaces, fumes and fine dusts (with microparticles of suspended dust with a diameter inferior to 0,1 µm) are continuously produced, which if inhaled can bring serious consequences to the health of the operators. The activity of welding must therefore be carried out with particular attention to the figure of the welder.
Specifically, welding is the fusion of two metallic components by means of a localised heat source emitted by a welding torch. During this process, fumes, gases and vapors that are harmful to health are released.
Gases, vapours, odours or fumes should be extracted as close as possible to where they are produced. Occupational exposure limit values (OELVs) set the limit for the average concentration of pollutants that must never be exceeded within a worker's breathing zone. These values are taken from scientific data provided by the Ministry of Health. Their purpose is to limit the presence of dust and microparticles in the working environment. The occupational exposure limit values are a key objective and efforts will be made to lower them to the lowest possible values.
The range of Du-Puy vacuum cleaners dedicated to the world of welding offers a series of effective tools to prevent these toxic fumes from being dispersed in the working environment and breathed in by the operators. How? By sucking up the fumes and dust released by the processes directly at the source and cleanses them of chemical and harmful substances.
All our fumes extractors are equipped with a self-supporting extraction arm suitable for localized suction. They are of compact dimensions in order to be moved in the various work stations in a simple and fast way. They are essential instruments for the maintenance of the quality of the air in the car bodyworks, carpentries, mechanical workshops, shipyards and manufacturing companies.
