AIR movement equipment provider Fanquip has released a welding fume extractor, built on castors so it can be moved around the worksite.

The mobile fume extractor filters and clears air to 0.3 micron, and is suitable for use in facilities working with welding equipment, as well as in the food sector as a general air cleaner for dust, Fanquip says.

The system can be supplied with 2, 3 or 4m arms at 150 or 200mm in diameter.

The welding fume extractor was developed to cater for facilities that don’t have a built-in extraction system for welding and other fumes.

According to Fanquip, welding fumes are highly toxic and potentially carcinogenic, however as they are not easily seen by the naked eye, they are not given the required attention they deserve to keep plant workers safe.

The new units from Fanquip can be used to safe-guard personnel who perform mobile welding work on location.
