Rear plenum boxes draw fumes away from face
29 April 2013
Flextraction has come up with a solution for the extraction of welding fumes for steel furniture manufacturer MIG. The company was spot welding components using static hoods in seven jig welding fabrication bays extracting from above.
The requirement was for the welding fumes to be drawn away from the faces of their welders, so that welding could be carried out in a clean environment and intricate welding operations could be undertaken without having to adjust any extraction system.
Flextraction fitted rear plenum boxes with six louvered grills on the back wall of each welding booth in close proximity to the worktable, to draw any welding fumes away from the face of the operator and into a new spiral galvanised sheet steel ductwork system with inspection/ access doors and sized to provide good conveying velocity throughout its length.
