We put together this infographic to help guide you through the process of how to choose a welding fume extractor.
Choosing a fume extractor will vary pending on your needs. The first distinction is whether you are looking to remove common welding gases and fumes or if the fumes are flammable or explosive.
As a general note, the products listed on our site, Remove The Fume, should not be used with flammable or explosive fumes. If you require oil mist removal or similar, please contact us directly for a custom solution.
The next step is determining whether you need a stationary or mobile fume extractor. For shops requiring a high degree of flexibility, mobile units are a good choice. For shops where work occurs in static areas, or floor space is limited, stationary units might be preferred.
The final step is choosing an extractor that suits how much welding is done daily/monthly. For shops where welding is an occasional function, a lighter unit may be sufficient. For shops with a sustainability focus, a self-cleaning unit may be preferred. For your convenience, our infographic includes daily welding time ranges and monthly consumable usage rates.
