Welding Fume Extraction Systems
The welding fume extraction system contains vapours and fine particles which are a mixture of airborne gas by-products and vapour by-products. A mixture’s composition will vary depending on the welding method and the products that will be welded together. When welding, the gas and vapours released during the process can cause serious health problems. The exposure that lasts for a short period of time can cause nausea, dizziness, or irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.
As a result of prolonged exposure, one is exposed to ultra-fine metal dust that can cause cancer of the lung, permanent damage to the brain, and kidney failure. It’s no secret that certain gases, such as helium, carbon dioxide, and argon displace oxygen and argon specifically, posing a suffocation risk in enclosed work areas. For this reason, Translas, a Dutch welding gun manufacturer, developed fume welding guns – 8XR Cobot, 8XE MIG, and 8TE TIG fume Extractors – that extract the welding fumes directly at the source up to 98%.
In the welding industry, the 8XE MIG Fume Extractor has arguably the best fume extraction structure to reduce fumes during welding. This gun comes with three different angles, 30°, 45°, and straight, so you can choose what you prefer. In combination with the ClearO2 W-series 100 and 200 weld fume extractors, the 8XE MIG Fume Extractor captures as much as 98% of welding fumes directly at their source. Welders and workers who use the 8XE MIG Fume Extractor can breathe CLEAN AIR and have a better work environment since it is the safest and most effective solution on the market.
TAs the first TIG fume extractor in the world, the 8TE TIG Extractor protects the welders and other workers in the factory from harmful fumes and metals such as aluminum, chrome, iron, manganese, and nickel that may be released during welding operations. Translas air-cooled and water-cooled 8TE TIG fume extractors have been patented for the purpose of eliminating as much as 95% of harmful particulates that human eyes cannot see directly at their sources. As a result of this fume extraction system, welders will not be exposed to toxic fumes such as hexavalent chromium and manganese.
It is designed to be one of the most efficient fume extraction systems available in the welding industry – the 8XR Cobot MIG Fume Extractor. This torch is available in four different angles: 22°, 35°, 45°, and straight. When the 8XR Cobot MIG Fume Extractor is used with the ClearO2 W-series 100 and 200, it allows for up to 98% of welding fumes to be captured directly at the source of the fume. This Cobot 8XR MIG Fume Extractor is one of the safest and most effective welding fume systems available to ensure the safety of welding workers and for better working environments, as well as working with the UR10e, UR5e, & UR16e Universal Robots.
The ClearO2 portable extraction units offered by Translas were specially engineered to work with the 8XR Cobot, 8XE MIG, & 8TE TIG fume extractors to deliver the best results – up to 98% extraction of welding fumes directly at the source. The ClearO2 portable extraction units and solutions are ready-to-use systems, designed for maximum convenience for the welder during work.
