Rising level of indoor pollution can cause respiratory disorders among factory workers. Demand for welding fume extraction equipment is triggered by the growing need to decontaminate the work environments.
Welding Fume Extraction Equipment/Devices:
Welding fume extraction equipment can collect fumes produced at the weld pool. These devices can control the particulate levels in industrial work settings. Organizations like Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), ISO 15011-4:2006, and Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) impose strict regulations for occupational exposure to hazardous fumes. These guidelines can safeguard health & safety of the workers.
Adoption of welding fume extraction devices can culminate in better product delivery and safe working environment. Mobile & stationary units and large centralized systems are the three chief examples of these extraction systems. Extraction guns and arms are witnessing a high demand from North America and Asia Pacific. Growing infrastructural projects can further support this demand.
Recently, BOFA International Ltd., a British company specializing in filtration equipment, joined forces with Cartesio to manufacture fume extraction filters for their 3D printers. These filters can protect children and other consumers. They are suitable for Polyjet, WDM (Wax Deposition Modelling), and SLA (Stereolithography) printers.
Colleges are one of the primary consumers of these systems. Recently, Western Air Ducts aided the woodworking department of the City of Oxford College with a customized filtration system. The system can collect dust particles that are generated from the wood-working machines.
