This fume can be made up of a number of toxic metals, including aluminum, antimony, arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, iron, lead, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, silver, tin, titanium, vanadium and zinc. The fusion of metals produces a number of potentially toxic gases. These include argon, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, helium, hydrogen fluoride, iron oxide, nitric acid, nitrogen, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and phosgene.
Inhalation can cause serious lung complications and diseases, as well as damage the brain and nervous system. Common complications caused by exposure to welding fume include various cancers, emphysema, kidney failure, lead poisoning and anemia, Parkinson’s Disease, metal fume fever, irritation of nose, sinus, throat and lungs and asthma.
Many toxic gases and fumes can have a cumulative effect on health without warning
Wear a respirator with good filtration
Position your face as far from fumes as possible.
Use any provided ventilation systems.
Use a fume extractor to remove fumes from your workplace
Don't stand in before air flow pushing fumes away from your workspace.
Use a small cooling fan if no air flow moves fumes from your workspace.
A mobile welding fume extractor will capture and purify welding fume when it welds the metal parts. Mobile fume extractor uses the suction arm and hood to collect the fume in the welding point near.
Central fume extractor system will use one set main machine, duct system and suspended suction arms to capture and purify welding fume , it is suitable for multi-units welding stations and small space welding working area.
