As more people become aware of the harmful effects of welding fumes and regulations are put in place, more are moving to fume extraction torches as a solution.
In this blog we will go into detail on fume extraction torches; how they operate, design features, limitations, and maintenance so that you know what to expect before making the jump.
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.
