On torch welding extraction involves the use of a specialist welding gun that features the use of additional tool supplements.
Auto Extract Systems' range of on torch welding extraction (hi-vac) systems (or also known as on-tool extraction) capture welding fumes directly at-source, as the weld is being completed. The on torch welding extraction involves the use of a specialist welding gun that features the use of additional tool supplements. Fumes are extracted away directly from the source by the welding gun and filtered by a remotely located hi-vac filtration system and vented directly to the atmosphere, or dependent on the process, via a filtration unit.
In HSE’s HSG WL3: Welding Fume Control guidance, the HSE endorses the use of effective on torch welding extraction as one of the best methods of local exhaust ventilation, stating: “On torch extraction is the most effective fume control for MIG welding when it is set up and used correctly and that it’s most effective primarily because extraction is very close to the source at all times, and it doesn’t rely on the welder to reposition the extraction to maintain good fume capture.”
