Extraction Systems

Welding Fume Extraction Systems

Controlling the exposure to harmful exhaust fumes during the welding process is key to a healthy working environment. Capturing welding exhaust fumes directly at the source is the most efficient method of doing so. Protecting employees from these fumes while welding allows them to focus and effectively perform without worrying about the health risks involved.

Welding takes place in all different types of applications and certain fume capture techniques fit better than others. Depending on the situation, self-supporting fume arms, flexible hoses, or stationary hoods may work best.

From small spot-welding projects to large production manufacturing facilities, Ventaire will work with you to design and provide the appropriate welding ventilation system to remove harmful welding fumes from your workspace.

APPLICATIONS:

  • Self-Supporting Fume Arms - SIFA
  • Welding Hose Drops
  • Slotted Fume Hoods – FEH
  • Canopy Hoods
  • Miniature Fume Arms

Self-Supporting Fume Arms - SIFA

Ventaire’s self-supporting fume arms are the premier solution for exhausting welding fumes from the workplace. The SIFA fume arm supports are located outside the airstream allowing for unobstructed airflow through the entire arm and provides minimal pressure drop compared to internally supported fume arms.

Articulation of these arms is convenient, simply performed by grabbing the handle located on the inlet hood and positioning it to the ideal location. The SIFA fume arms can be ducted to a central exhaust fan or provided with a direct mount pressure blower. The high-quality construction of Ventaire’s SIFA fume arm provides years of use with minimal maintenance. 

FEATURES:

  • Heavy-duty powder-coated steel tube construction.
  • Powder-coated aluminum inlet hood with handle & shut-off damper.
  • Reinforced cast aluminum joint brackets with composite friction discs.
  • The arm is supported using a fully enclosed spring balancer.
  • Collar swivel for 360° rotation capability.
  • Available in 3”, 4”, 6” & 8” diameters.
  • Available in lengths of 3’, 5’, 7’, 10’ & 14’, depending on diameter.
  • Can be flange mounted to extension booms for increased range of motion.
  • Options: Stainless steel construction, light package, fan control switch, custom hoods, extension boom & direct mount exhaust fan.

Welding Hose Drops

Flexible hose drops with weld hoods are an efficient yet economical option when it comes to capturing welding fumes in the workplace. The welding hose assemblies are provided with a section of flexible hose and an inlet hood. The weld hoods include a magnetic base for secure positioning near the welding location.

FEATURES:

  • Standard flexible hose is constructed of flame retardant neoprene coated polyester with external steel helix.
  • Standard hood is constructed of galvanized steel and provided with a magnetic base, positioning handle & debris screen.
  • Standard hose diameter is 6″. Smaller or larger diameters are available upon request.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Options: Stainless steel hood construction, aluminum hood construction, plastic hood construction, hood dampers, hood collar swivel, special hose construction & overhead hose storage systems.

Slotted Fume Hoods – FEH

Ventaire’s slotted fume hoods are the ideal solution for capturing welding fumes in stationary applications such as welding booths or tables. Positioned along a wall or mounted to the back of tables, the slotted fume hoods are designed to draw the fumes away from the welding fume source opposite the breathing zone. These robust hoods allow for an uninterrupted welding process and eliminate repositioning as required with systems with smaller movable hoods. Available in three standard sizes, Ventaire can custom design and manufacture to meet your specific requirements.

FEATURES:

  • Reinforced galvanized steel welded construction.
  • Standard sizes fit 3’, 4’ & 5’ wide welding booths or welding tables.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Options: Stainless steel construction, custom dimensions, side skirts (baffles), blast gate dampers, various material thicknesses, mounting brackets & welding tables.

Canopy Hoods

Canopy hoods are common in the welding industry in situations where welding fumes cannot be captured directly at the source. The canopy hoods are installed over the area where the welding takes place providing a hands-free solution for capturing welding fumes before they enter the workplace environment. Ventaire offers a wide selection of canopy hood designs and sizes to meet your specific requirements.

FEATURES:

  • Reinforced welded galvanized steel construction.
  • Manufactured to meet specific design and size requirements.
  • Provided with ceiling or wall mounting brackets.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Options: Stainless steel construction, aluminum construction, various material thicknesses, internal baffles, side skirts & custom mounting brackets.

Miniature Fume Arms

Ventaire’s miniature fume extraction arms are the perfect solution for smaller applications such as laboratory exhaust, soldering & light industry environments. This easy-to-use, one-of-a-kind design offers maximum flexibility making these your best choice for local fume exhaust extraction.

The Ventaire miniature fume arm efficiency is next to none, utilizing special joint construction to provide the lowest possible pressure drop & quietest work environment. Available in several different constructions to handle the harshest chemical compounds found in laboratories. Several different inlet hood configurations and mounting brackets are available to best meet your specific fume removal requirements.

FEATURES:

  • Standard construction includes anodized aluminum tubes with gasketed polypropylene joints.
  • Available with polypropylene tube construction for corrosive fume applications.
  • Available with conductive polypropylene construction to meet ATEX requirements.
  • Provided with airflow shut-off damper.
  • Tapered powder-coated aluminum inlet hood as standard. Additional hood options available.
  • Available in 3” & 4” tube diameters.
  • Overall lengths range from 37″ to 105″ depending on tube diameter.
  • Available with wall, ceiling, table flange, or table mounting brackets.
  • Options: Alternate construction, clear dome inlet hood, custom mounting bracket, light package, ceiling bracket escutcheon plate, and debris screen.
