FUME EXTRACTION

Industrial processes such as physically altering materials has the potential to produce harmful fumes. Therefore, fume extraction should be listed as a high priority in workspaces that performs processes such as painting, welding, and gluing.

THE IMPACT
OF FUMES

The airborne residue created by solvents, paint and welding bay fumes can have a dangerous impact on those onsite and in close proximity. Effects range from mild symptoms such as watery eyes and a runny nose – to more pressing health issues including chest tightening, breathlessness and chronic effects on the central nervous system.

Solvent fume

Some solvents are less hazardous than others, but this does not eliminate potential issues in the workplace. Alongside this, people have different tolerances and reactions to all existing solvents.

Solvent fumes are often colourless, strong in scent and created during curing and cleaning processes. Exposure to solvent fumes must be avoided at all times – with the most efficient solution being a fully functional fume extraction system.

PAINT fume

Some types of paint contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) – potentially harmful substances that can bring on both short and long-term negative health effects.

These types of paint are up to 10 times more concentrated indoors than outdoors. Headaches, dizziness, memory impairment and kidney/liver damage are just a few reported health issues.

Our carbon filtered fume extraction systems are specifically designed to capture these harmful compounds and protect your employees and their working environment.

WELDING BAY

Welding bay fumes come with an array of issues that need to be considered in hazardous environments. Some may be met with an illness such as pneumonia – with the best-case scenario being short-term and resulting in a full recovery. Others may suffer from long term and permanent illnesses such as asthma.

The fumes produced from activities such as welding and hot cutting release airborne gases such as nitrous oxide (NOx), carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO). If used, these fine particles can create a cloud of metal, metal oxide and flux and kickstart a series of negative effects on those in close proximity. Our premium and purpose-built fume extraction systems are provided and fitted to ensure that these gases and fine particles do not get inhaled or risk ill health for those on-site.
