High-vakuum extraction: Dutch manufacturer Aebi Schmidt relies on extraction torches
Is it possible to weld optimally with extraction torches? In the past, they were often considered unwieldy due to the additional extraction elements on the torch, but this image is changing. Based on convincing test experiences, Aebi Schmidt Nederland B.V. decided in favour of a torch-integrated high-vacuum extraction system. Together with KEMPER, the Dutch spreader and sweeper manufacturer took its air pollution control concept to a new level.
WIG welding: “Clean” process with underestimated health risk
It is deemed a “clean” welding process creating only little welding fumes and is therefore often underestimated: WIG welding. The process harbors health risks which should not be underestimated. Welders are exposed to nitrogen oxides, radioactivity and ozone in particular. … >> more
Direct extraction of welding fumes: source capture overview
Source captures are the first choice when it comes to the occupational safety equipment. They are used directly at the place where welding fumes emerge. Three types of source captures are applied for various requirements during welding works. Numerous metal … >> more
Extracting welding fumes with right distance from emissions source
There are many more ways to collect welding fumes than often thought. Each has pros and cons, and optimum safety can be achieved – under certain working conditions – only by combining several measures. Burner-integrated spot extraction In this method, … >> more
