Soldering Fume Extraction

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Soldering fumes are Unbreathable. Soldering enables the joining of metal parts by melting a filler metal to attach wires and other metallic components. The fumes generated from melting solder especially solder containing Lead or Tin present are dangerous and require local ventilation to remove harmful smoke from the work area. Soldering application need to be properly ventilated to prevent toxic fumes from reaching the worker`s breathing zone. There are a number of different industries such as the electronics assembly industry and electronics repair comapnies who must deal with the hazards of solder smoke. Fumes created by automated PCB soldering including wave soldering machines, handheld soldering irons, torch brazing and furnance brazing are often ignored because of the small volume of smoke generated. However, these applications still require careful consideration as dangerous fumes can impair employee’s respiratory tracts depending on the filler metals used. Because manual soldering applications require working with tiny components, workers end up positioning their heads right above toxic rosin or lead solder fumes with a direct exposure into their throat, nasal passages and lungs, and as a result, they can experience respiratory complications. Rosin irritation can cause various side effects and the inhalation of lead fumes is carcinogenic. As lead oxide smoke collects in your lungs, it can be transferred into your bloodstream. Diversitech recommends installing soldering fume extraction equipment to prevent the inhalation of dangerous fumes. These ventilation units will not only protect each person working at a soldering station when installed and positioned correctly, but they will also prevent fumes from contaminating other worker’s lungs.?

Laser & Plasma Cutting

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Laser & Plasma Cutting fumes are Unbreathable. Using laser or plasma cutting equipment on either metals or plastics introduces several known carcinogens, such as fused silica and ethyl acrylate, into the air. Occupational Health and Safety organizations recommend reducing personal exposure to the lowest level feasible. Hand held plasma cutting provides metalworkers with a quick and fast way to cut large sheets of metal material. However, plasma and oxy cutting generate a large amount of sparks, slag and fume which can contain different pollutants depending on the type of material being cut. Diversitech's line of downdraft tables incorporating the plasma cutting kit are designed to extinguish the sparks and slag, using heavy duty steel bar grating and a gravel filled baffle tray while the blower pulls away all of the toxic plasma cutting fumes. When considering how to capture and filter the fumes generated from large CNC plasma cutting and laser cutting machines, a large central dust

Smoke generator device for leak testing & building envelope testing

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

Smoke is the perfect medium for discovering where leaks are and how big they are! Filling a `leaky` building, ductwork, pipes, aircraft or containment area with smoke and ideally adding a small amount of pressure to the area being tested, will result in a visible discharge of smoke and, simply put, the greater the volume of smoke, the bigger the leak. After Concept developed a bespoke system for their aircraft testing requirements, a spokesperson for the RAF commented: `The use of smoke as a means by which to detect cabin pressurisation leaks has been shown to be extremely effective and is unquestionably superior to any alternative detection method used to date!`

Smoke generator devices for lev testing, spray booth clearance testing & air testing

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

For many years, materials containing isocyanate have been the single biggest cause of occupational asthma in the UK. Vehicle paint sprayers are 80 times more likely to develop occupational asthma than workers in other industries. This is caused by the inhalation of the fine paint mist that is generated when paint spraying. There is a requirement for the measurement and display of `clearance times` for spray booths / rooms set by the HSE and the Motor Vehicle Repair (MVR) to meet the requirements of Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).

Welding Fume Extraction

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Welding fumes & gases are Unbreathable. Nonetheless, welding is perhaps the most common industrial process and necessary anytime the joining of metals is required. Regardless of the welding equipment type or technology, the simple process of melting metal and filler materials creates poisonous fumes and gases. ? Different types of welding processes present unique challenges to adequately handle airborne fumes. Robotic welding equipment and other automated welding systems produce a high volume of welding fumes and sparks and need to captured by a heavy duty robotic welding hood. Moreover, manual stick welding typically produces a high volume of smoke and often requires a self-cleaning fume extractor to avoid overwhelming the filters.? Lighter duty applications like MIG welding generally produce less particulate and light-duty TIG welding generates the least amount of smoke. It is important to not only consider the type of welding process but also the work piece material in order to select the correct filtration media for your application. HEPA filters are recommended for stainless steel welding, Nanofiber filters for Aluminum and parts containing higher levels of Manganese. Polyester filters are appropriate where rust inhibitor, lubricants and coatings create an oily smoke as these filters can be washed in water. Diversitech offers a complete line of fume collection machines from compact welding fume extractors to central welding fume filtration systems. We specialize in engineered solutions and our engineering team is experienced in selecting the best equipment and filter media for your particular application. We can present you with detailed technical drawings demonstrating several potential layouts and solutions including costing, installation and start-up expenses. ??

Smoke generator device for PPV & impulse ventilation testing

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

When water-based artificial smoke is introduced into a rapidly moving air stream, the particles that make up the artificial smoke evaporate much more quickly than they do in a static environment. So if you are looking to produce an artificial smoke that better represents the smoke created by a real fire, we would always recommend the ViCount smoke generator, the smoke from which is virtually unaffected by fast moving air streams. Used world wide PPV training centre`s and to test impulse ventilation systems. A Home Office report into PPV (Positive pressure Ventilation) by the Head of the Fire Experimental Unit, Fire Research & Development concluded that the concept behind the technique of PPV was relatively easy to understand and the equipment simple to operate, but stressed the need for extensive training.

Marine emissions monitoring

by DynOptic Systems Ltd     based in Brackley, UNITED KINGDOM

In recent years, new regulations have been introduced governing emissions from ships. With the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopting Annex VI of MARPOL designed to limit sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrous oxides (NOx) and particulate matter emissions, as well as introducing emission control areas (ECAs) to reduce emissions of those air pollutants further in designated sea areas, ship owners/operators can face hefty fines for failing to meet these new requirements on the “polluter pays” principle.

Smoke generator device for large scale external exercises and tunnel testing

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

Making smoke in a very open environment or external environment can be a challenging! An oil-based smoke generator, such as a ViCount system, can produce dramatically more artificial smoke than multiple water based systems. This is due to the fact that the smoke ViCounts produce, being oil-based, does not evaporate in the same way and speed that water-based smoke does. The smoke from a ViCount smoke generator will travel for 1000`s of meters, compared to a typical water based smoke machine that may produce a smoke visible for 100 meters. Just one ViCount or Vulcan can replace 10 or more conventional water based smoke systems. ViCount`s have been used world wide for many tunnel smoke simulations, be it for RTA training / evacuation exercises or tunnel ventilation testing.
