Portable fume extractor
fume extractor, a
portable, low-vacuum system designed for the intermittent and
continuous removal and filtration of
welding fumes. Designed to reduce
welding dust, smoke, and fumes in the
work environment, the unit filters
contaminated air and recirculates it
into the work area.
The system is lightweight and has
standard rear wheels and front caster
wheels for portability. It is suitable for
shops, such as maintenance departments and general fabrication and
welding shops, that need a mobile
fume extraction system.
The unit’s mobility and the flexibility of its extraction arms, available
in 10- and 13-ft. lengths, make reaching the welding point easier. The system can adapt to various work locations and welding applications,
including SMAW, GTAW, GMAW,
The 200-M model draws air
through the extraction arm and spark
arrester, capturing welding fumes
inside the LongLife® filter.
Particulates are collected on the
inside of the cartridge, keeping hands
clean during filter maintenance.
The 400-MS model uses a
RotaPulse® self-cleaning filter process.
The cleaning of the filter is done segment by segment, with compressed air
released through multiple air jets, and
results in a consistently high airflow.
When the filter becomes dirty, a pressure sensor activates the cleaning system. A complete cleaning cycle can
be activated by a manual switch.
