Better Fume Control for Large Weldments Starts at the Source

Is your weld fume solution a fan and an open window? Working on large weldments – such as heavy equipment, ships or wind turbines – makes fume capture a challenge. However, today’s manufacturers have more options for fume control than ever. The best option for manual welding of large components may be one you haven’t considered for a while: the fume gun.

The Right Filter Makes a Difference in Weld Fume Management

Removing the fumes from the area is only the beginning of the process. How you filter the fume is just as critical to achieve successful results.

Navigating OSHA’s Hierarchy of Controls to Minimize Weld Fume

In considering which weld fume management solution is right for your shop environment, be aware that it may be necessary to implement multiple solutions from the agency’s outlines to achieve the desired exposure limits for each individual metal, metal oxide or gas found in the weld plume. Here are the steps to follow. 

New Technology Expands Work Envelope When Using Fume Extractors

Source capture is the recommended method of  fume extraction because it removes contaminated air at the source, before it reaches a welder’s breathing zone. Recent advancements in source capture technology create a much larger capture area than what’s available with existing systems and can minimize how often the welder has to move the extraction arm.

Five Considerations When Purchasing a Fume Extraction System

In today's market, highly skilled welders can choose where they want to work. An important factor for any company to recruit and retain skilled welders is to have a clean, healthy work environment. For this reason, it is critical for a company to have a reliable fume extraction system to maintain a clean and safe work environment.
