Manual Welding Source Capture Ventilation Systems
Source capture is a proven way to reduce weld fumes where it is needed most. This involves collecting fumes at the point of welding. There are several ways to do this. A fume arm or overhead hood can pull source fumes out of the breathing zone. The added benefit of a fume arm is the ability to pinpoint the source of fumes and ensure welders stay out of the harm’s way. However, a fume arm requires welders to reposition the arm as they work, which doesn’t always happen when welders are in a hurry.
Other RoboVent options for source capture include a fume gun that has a capture nozzle integrated directly into the welding gun. This device captures fumes at the point of creation. Other options, such as backdraft, downdraft and crossflow products, direct air through a welding station in such a way as to capture fumes and carry them away from the welder.
All of these options are based on RoboVent’s decades of experience controlling weld fumes. RoboVent understands welding, and these solutions are suited to MIG, TIG, Stick and Spot Welding. They are also suited for any material you might work with, including carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel and specialty metals.
