The FumeSimulator from Plymovent visualizes the background concentration of welding fumes in production facilities.

This design/simulation program confirms the effective operation of the general ventilation and filtration systems controlling welding fumes. The simulator calculates and visualizes the concentration of welding fumes of a customized system solution. The simulation shows whether the welding fumes, in the system solution stay within the desired (legal) limits. 

The reliability of the simulation is related to the input of the customer. The customer must, for an accurate simulation, indicate which welding activities take place, how many welders and/or welding machines are present and how many hours per day welding is performed. The Project Engineering team of Plymovent verifies that data. The data, together with the chosen system solution, are the input for the FumeSimulator.

For the simulation, the FumeSimulator uses CFD technology (Computational Fluid Dynamics). The simulator generates a report visualizing the concentration of welding fumes in the production facility. The customer recognizes his production facility and the chosen system solution and sees his specified input back in the report.
