WELDING FUMES SOLUTION
Why is welding fume dangerous?
Inhalation can cause serious lung complications and diseases, as well as damage the brain and nervous system. Common complications caused by exposure to welding fume include various cancers; emphysema; kidney failure; lead poisoning and anemia; Parkinson’s Disease; metal fume fever; irritation of nose, sinus, throat and lungs; and asthma.
Many toxic gases and fumes can have a cumulative effect on health without warning.
They usually have different compositions, depending on the metals that are used for welding, and for this reason they contain several contaminants.
The following are some of the activities in the production process that generate a high amount of fumes and could result in health risks to your workforce:
- Plastic bonding
- Working with epoxies
- 3-D printing
Using a WELD ONE or XM- TORCH vacuum system is the ideal solution for vacuuming fumes directly from the welding torch. A powerful single-phase by-pass motor (air flow rate of up to 160m3/h). The vacuum is controlled directly by the welding machine. A sophisticated sensor on the vacuum enables it to sense when there is a flow of current in the earth cable in the clip. A cellulose filter filters the welding fumes in complete safety. An activated carbon filter or a class H13 filter can be installed on demand allows safe and efficient removal of unwanted dust and sand. With several options for dust-free disposal including bagging, drumming or dumpsters, Depureco’s WELD ONE, and XM- TORCH is the Welding Industry’s best choice for safe and efficient housekeeping.

The AIR WELD fume extractor is used to extract welding fumes in complete safety and comfort.
The vacuum is compact, easy to move and has a 3-metre articulated arm that can be placed at each work point.
