6 Products

The extraction of welding fumes is essential to the health and well being of the welder. This is true even if the operation is being carried out only for short periods. We have put together a selection of the products that you would require in order to provide a safe working environment, offering efficient local exhaust ventilation (LEV) within your workplace.

Select from the products below, or for more advice on these or other products within our range please contact our team on 01664 410 641 and they will be happy to assist you.

Weld X Clean Air

Welding Fume Extractors

Fresh Air By Design - Providing the welder with efficient, correctly installed and utilised extraction equipment will ensure they are able to breathe safely

At Flextraction, we provide a range of welding air filtration systems and welding fume extraction filters in order for your business to provide the safest working environment for your staff within the vicinity of a welding process.

Exposure to hazardous welding fumes and dust increase the risk of lung related illnesses, including occupational asthma, metal fume fever, pneumonia and even cancer. The fume given off by welding and hot cutting processes is a varying mixture of airborne gases and very fine particles which if inhaled can cause ill health.

Welding fumes are more than just an inconvenience generated during the welding process; the harmless looking smoke has potentially life changing consequences. However, the installation of a correctly designed welding fume extractor fan and welding air filtration system, used in accordance with the operating instruction, would ensure that the welding fumes are extracted at source making it a safer environment for all.

Welding Fume Extraction Arms

Also refereed to as a Hood Positioning Device (HPD), Flextraction provide three basic solutions

Our range of welding fume extraction hoses are designed to have the hood correctly placed to meet the extraction demands on the process being carried out, ensuring the safe extraction contaminants at source.

These self-supporting extraction arms (HPD) from Flextraction are available in three basic formats:

  • Articulated - This type of HPD is available in 4 standard lengths 2m, 2.5m, 3m and 4m, extensible up to 8m. They can be fitted with 5 various hose diameters depending upon the application, these are 75mm, 100mm, 125mm, 160mm and 200mm.
  • Telescopic – This type of HPD is available as a standard size which varies from 1.2m or 1.65m depending upon its extended position. It can also be fitted with any of the hose sizes above.
  • Mini – This type of HPD is scaled down version of the Articulated HPD and is available in either 1m or 1.5m lengths and is fitted with 75 mm, 100mm or 125m dia. hose.

The final addition to our range of welding fume extraction systems is our downdraught bench

For some welding processes it may be that a down draught extraction bench may be an alternative, offering a multipurpose option being suitable for additional applications such as grinding or sanding.

Extraction arms can be fitted to the bench to enable the welding process contaminants to be extracted safely.

The BA model is suited for the extraction of welding fumes and particulate, sanding, grinding, iron, marble, plastic and all activities where there is a need to create a safe workplace for the operator and limit the area affected by particulate emissions.
