Welding benches capture dust and fumes away from the workspace by drawing them downwards and backwards through a perforated work surface.
Auto Extract System's welding benches benches (or also commonly known as extraction benches) capture fumes and dust away from your workspace by drawing them downwards, and backwards through a perforated work surface, typically into an internal filtration system. These highly-efficient local exhaust ventilation (LEV) systems are designed to protect workers' and working environments from hazardous fumes and dust produced on the work surface.
In HSE’s ‘WL3: Welding Fume Control’ guidance, recommend this method of local exhaust ventilation, as: “It doesn’t need to be repositioned throughout the working process to maintain adequate fume capture and is best used for small and medium-sized workpieces. However, it’s also recommended that welding benches are enclosed as much as practically possible, thus to avoid cross-draughts and improve fume capture effectiveness.”
Welding benches are a very versatile product and are available in a choice sizes and dimensions. They are a very popular product in our range as they provide at-source extraction and remove the pollutant from the workplace before it has the opportunity to dissipate into the workplace.
Welding benches should be utilised in conjunction with one of our centrifugal fans to vent the captured fumes either directly to the atmosphere or depending on the working process, via a filtration unit.
