Home / Maintenance / Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality

This category includes tools and systems used to filter or monitor the air quality in and around the buildings and structures used for fabricating and metalworking. Maintaining good indoor air quality (IAQ) is important to not only the health of operators, but can also impact product quality. Tools used to test IAQ collect air samples and samples of building surfaces, monitor exposure to pollutants, and computer model air flow inside buildings. Welding operations create hazardous pollutants that must be filtered or extracted to maintain good IAQ; this is done with filtration units at the point of origin, full-room ventilation systems, and air cleaners.
