Here’s a look at a few products that are up to the task:






Fume and Dust

Nederman's Filterbox fume extractorClick image to enlargeCapture dangerous fumes from welding and other metal fabricating processes directly at the source with Nederman’s range of mobile FilterBox and FilterCart fume and dust extraction units.

These units come with optimized Nanofiber filter technology for longer cleaning intervals and longer filter lifespan.

Nanofiber is the preferred choice for welding applications as it offers the longest filter life and lowest total running cost. It also has high efficiency making it suitable for high alloy applications: F9 (EN779) and MERV 15 (ASHRAE 52.2).

Nederman’s latest Nanofiber filter media is backwards compatible so your existing mobile filter units can be upgraded to realize the benefits of enhanced cleaning, efficiency and

Nederman offers capture-at-source solutions with extraction arms or on-torch systems, mobile extraction and filtering units and stationary central vacuum systems for your facility.


Through the gun

translas8XRClick image to enlargeThe 8XR MIG Extractor from Translas is made for cobot and semi-automatic welding solutions.

The 8XR’s unique nozzle design provides the best results in taking away the fumes directly at the source. The nickel-plated contact tips are designed for a longer lifetime and are available for all types of wire and sizes.

The 8XR will fit almost every marked known torch holder and easy to clamp in a track.

Prolonged exposure is like inhaling ultrafine metal dust which can lead to cancer of the lung, damage to the brain and kidney damage. Certain gases, such as helium, carbon dioxide and argon, displace oxygen and argon can pose suffocation risks, particularly in enclosed work areas.

The 8XR Cobot MIG Extractor integrates the most efficient fume extraction structure in the welding industry. The torch comes with four different angles: 22°, 35°, 45° and straight.

Combined with the ClearO2 W-series 100 and 200, it captures up to 98 per cent of welding fumes directly at the source.


Mechanized Solution

lincoln prism fumeextracterClick image to enlargeThe Prism Mobile with mechanized cleaning from Lincoln Electric is a low vacuum system for welding fume extraction and filtration. Its size and mobility make it ideal for smaller manufacturing facilities that require light to medium duty welding fume extraction in variable locations.

It offers generous airflow of 735 CFM with a flexible 10-foot or 13 foot extraction arm, and its internal spark arrestor functions as a pre-filter for larger-sized particulates. This prevents sparks from reaching the filter. Its RotaPulse automatic filter cleaning system reduces maintenance.

The filter has a larger surface area which requires fewer changes; helping to lower operational costs. The extraction arms allow for optimal motion and reach for multiple work areas while front casters and rear wheels provide ideal mobility and positioning.
