Translas' 8XE MIG Extractor Click image to enlargeTranslas has released two new fume extractors to reduce welders’ exposure to hazardous fumes and provide a healthier, safer work environment.

The 8XE MIG Extractor integrates the most efficient fume extraction structure in the welding industry. The torch comes with three different angles, 30°, 45° and straight.

The 8XE MIG Extractor, combined with the ClearO2 W-series 100 and 200, captures up to 98 per cent of the welding fumes directly at the source.

It’s ball joint has a 30° vertical angular movement combined with 360° swivelling, both of which have a full stop. It also has excellent manoeuvrability and leaves the cables and hoses untwisted making it leakage and breakage free. This combination is absolutely new to the market.

The New 8TE-17 Air Cooled and 8TE-30 Water cooled TIG Extractor protects welders and other workers from harmful fumes and metals released during welding such as aluminium, chromium, iron, manganese and nickel. It’s engineered to work with the clearO2 T100 and T200 portable units to deliver the best results.
