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.
Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is one of today’s most popular welding methods in nearly all industrial manufacturing fields. This is a positive development; however, the process has a wide range of risks for the welder. Welders protect themselves from the negative effects of welding by wearing protective gear to protect the body and eyes from burns, electrical shock and bright light and ultraviolet radiation.
Every welding project generates hazardous fumes and smoke that can be dangerous to welders if inhaled. One way to improve the safety of welding torch operators is with fume extraction torches. Our xFume™ Fume Extraction Torches offer efficient fume extraction through the torch itself. Its unique design solutions make it the best option for welding fume extraction. While there are multiple fume extraction options in the market, here are three things to consider when making your fume extraction torch selection.
