Increase Welding Safety in Your Facility with Central Weld Fume Extraction

Welding fume extractors are vital to maintaining a healthy and safe training environment for your welding students. Regardless of the weld fume extraction system needed for your facility, our team at Lincoln Electric will provide engineering, commissioning, training and service for your system which allows for a simple and easy solution.

Central Systems can be used for weld fume extraction in the following welding processes and metalworking operations:

  • Stick welding (SMAW)
  • TIG welding (GTAW)
  • Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW)
  • Plasma cutting
  • Grinding

Lincoln Electric’s Central Systems for welding fume extraction feature:

  • Flexibility
  • Low energy consumption
  • Support, service and knowledge from the Lincoln Electric team

With a Central System, welding fume extraction occurs at the point of welding, typically referred to as the source, and is transported via ductwork to a central location for filtration. This type of weld fume extraction system helps to keep welding fume away from the operator’s breathing zone and also reduces the accumulation of welding fume in the workplace.
