Fixed Point Weld Fume Extraction System

We have a vast amount of experience working with welding companies and welders across the UK. Our fixed point weld fume extraction system creates safer working environments.

The mixture of airborne particles, fumes and hot gases produced by the weld fume process makes them dangerous if working with them. Unless the fumes are captured and extracted by weld fume extraction systems before being inhaled they can cause health issues.

Do I need a welding fume extraction system?

Yes. Anyone who welds indoors, as part of their profession or employment must now by law use LEV to capture the fumes at source.

Fumex Ltd also supply and install a wide range of weld fume extraction arms from 1.5 metre Flexi Arms to 9 metre Flexi Crane Arms. We can provide both internal and external support extraction arms for many different types of industry. They are all designed to capture welding fumes at source and vent them to atmosphere via a high-performance centrifugal fan and Jet-Cowl. If the process includes grinding dust, the arms must be ducted to a centralised filter unit. We also have a range of mobile and portable filtration units for additional flexibility.

With the HSE change of enforcement expectation for all welding fume, including mild steel, does your company comply?

HSE Inspectors visit engineering / fabrication companies to ensure high-risk activities ā€“ particularly those affecting the health of workers ā€“ are being properly managed through provision of the following as a minimum (regardless of welding duration):

  • Suitable local exhaust ventilation (LEV) for all indoor welding activities, with respiratory protective equipment (RPE) for any residual risk, and
  • Appropriate RPE for welding outdoors
