To ensure the safety of machine operators, it's crucial to implement weld fume extraction systems in environments where welding equipment is being operated.
Welding fume is easily inhaled and becomes trapped in the lungs and targets other parts of the body. Weld fume also settles on floors and fixtures presenting injury and equipment malfunction risks. This is why it's important to collect fumes at the source, using a welding fume extraction system, to capture and filter air contaminants appropriately.
Compliance with occupational health and safety standards, such as OSHA's permissible exposure limits for welding fumes, is paramount. Nordfab® welding fume ductwork ensures adherence to these standards, providing a reliable solution for businesses to meet regulatory requirements and maintain a safe workplace.
Welding fume ducting is a key element in extraction systems. It can be installed on machinery to transfer contaminated air away from the work area reducing health, safety, and production risks.
Nordfab® welding fume ductwork helps remove contaminants from the air to improve air quality and keep fumes away from breathing zones. Nordfab ducting for weld fume also provides a higher quality work environment by limiting the number of accidents and production issues.
Designed with the unique challenges of welding applications in mind, Nordfab ducting provides a tailored solution. Its construction and features are specifically engineered to handle the demands of welding environments, ensuring optimal performance in capturing and extracting welding fumes.
Nordfab weld fume ducting includes pipes and fittings (branches, elbows, pipes, hoods, and adapters from 3" to 24" dia.) that have been machined so that each connecting end has double-rolled edges. When the clamp is snapped into place, the result is a strong, tight seal.
Modular ductwork eliminates the need for screws, welds, rivets, bolts, flanges, and other expensive fastening techniques.
