On torch welding fume extraction
Extraction at source is the most efficient capturing solution for welding fumes
Wherever it is a viable solution, it has been proven that extraction at source is the most effective and efficient method of capturing and removing welding and similar fumes. Using this method, the risk of the welder or operator being subject to hazardous fumes is minimized.
Many welding torches are now designed so the torch itself can easily be connected to the appropriate Nederman extraction unit to pick up most of the hazardous welding fumes. In other cases, Nederman nozzles for welding torches can be used; these are fitted to existing welding torches and are available in three different versions depending on the size of the welding torch.
