Welding Fume

Welding operations mainly occur in industrial sectors such as construction, mechanical processing, shipbuilding, and national defense. During operation, complex metallurgical reactions occur between the welding core, coating, and welding base metal under the high temperature of the arc, generating a large amount of iron oxide and a small amount of silica and zinc oxide. , fluoride and other trace metals and mixed smoke or aerosols of nitrogen oxides escape in the working environment. The particle size of welding fume is very small, mostly 0.4-0.5 μm. Once inhaled into the lungs of the human body, it cannot be degraded. Long-term exposure will cause pneumoconiosis, with symptoms of cough, sputum, chest pain and difficulty breathing, and will gradually disappear after the disease. The labor force may even be disabled for life, and the quality of life is seriously reduced.

Long-term exposure to welding fumes leads to lung infections complicated by pneumoconiosis. Therefore, it is crucial to prevent the hazards of welding fumes in the workplace. The workplace should install fume collection and exhaust devices to promptly discharge the welding fumes generated during operation into the workplace through pipes, and carry out regular work Monitor the concentration of dust and chemical hazard factors in the site to ensure that the concentration meets national occupational health standards. Although the welding fumes are small, they are extremely harmful in the long term. Increase your awareness of protection and maintain occupational health.

Our dust collector is suitable for collecting fine dust, including welding fume, metal grinding, laser cutting, etc. Our filters are treated with nano-coating or PTFE coating, and their filtration efficiency for particles of 0.2-2 microns reaches MERV 13 or above. The following products are suitable for filtering welding fume, please contact us to select the dust filtration equipment for you.
