How to reduce health burden during welding

Posted by André Faber on Oct 14, 2019 7:44:46 AM

With the new xFUME VAC series we are eliminating harmful welding fumes.

In any manufacturing location across the world, air quality and fume control is an increasing concern. While the welder himself bears the most burden in weld fume exposure and long term health risks, it’s not limited to just the welding operator. Across the entire shop floor – from the forklift operator to administrative staff and walk the floor, exposure to weld fumes is a second hand smoke experience.

How to Test Your Fume Extraction System

Posted by Etienne Blouin on Jul 30, 2018 2:29:52 PM

With fume extraction welding, the effectiveness of the smoke capture is always dependent on the strength of the fume extraction system. No matter how effective the torch or skilled the welder, without a system strong enough to capture the smoke, both the welder and the environment will not be spared from the harmful effects of metallic fumes.
