5 factors to consider when choosing an extraction unit

After the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found new scientific evidence that exposure to welding fumes can cause cancer, the need for effective fume extraction has never been greater. And what better way to make your working environment safer for welders than to invest in a reliable welding fume extractor from Defuma?

Welding fume extraction units capture fumes at the source – ensuring protection for your whole workforce. Here are 5 things to be mindful of when selecting an extraction unit:

  1. Operation

A welding fume extractor, like the MaxiFil clean welding smoke filter unit, provides non-stop operation. It is supplied with a self-cleaning filter and automatic, contamination-free dust disposal function, so you can relax in the knowledge that weld fumes are removed as soon as they are produced.

5 factors to consider when choosing an extraction unit

Other extraction units, such as the ProfiMaster welding smoke filter unit have a rotating and swivelling hood that makes them useful in a 360-degree radius. Constantly in operation, they require few adjustments during welding – making it more convenient for you.

  1. Mobility

Here at Defuma, we supply the MiniFil high vacuum smoke extraction filter unit which is perfect for moderate amounts of smoke and dust particles. An additional advantage of the welding fume extractor is that it’s highly mobile – making it a must-have for businesses that frequently change workplaces.

Also available to purchase, or hire, is the welding smoke exhaust fan L. We supply it in portable and mobile variations to make sure welded fumes are extracted from your workshop efficiently.

  1. Energy efficiency

No matter which welding fume extraction unit you select, they are all expertly engineered to remove welding fumes, dust, and smoke particles. The DFT-series electrostatic air filtration unit comes with washable filters as standard and is great for cleaning contaminated air indoors. It recirculates air back to the working environment which effectively reduces energy costs and the need to exhaust the conditioned air outdoors.

  1. Maintenance

All extractors are easy to maintain but the HZ750-2 welding fume extractor operates to 99.995% filter efficiency. Designed to provide a series of vacuum cleaners that combine specifically engineered features, it’s easy to use and maintain daily – making it a must-have for almost every situation.

Equally, the ProfiMaster welding smoke filter unit incorporates a maintenance door that allows you to quickly and easily change the filter.

  1. Affordability

Here at Defuma, our welding fume extraction units are priced competitively and suitable for a range of industrial environments. We aim to provide a cost-effective solution for everyone, so if you only need a temporary solution, why not take advantage of our hire and lease equipment? We hire our equipment out to help customers avoid capital expenditure and will be more than happy to arrange delivery, set up and training.
