fume collection Applications

  • Soldering Fume Extraction

    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.?

  • Welding Fume Extraction

    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. ??

  • Foundry dedusting systems

    Dusts and fumes coming out of part of induction melting fumaces are collected by means of special designed suctioning apparatus and are filtered in both BOMAKSAN brand, Hatemak serial high performance "Cyclone" and long-life "Jet Pulse Cartridge Filter". In addition, dusts coming out of vibration screen used during mould distortion are filtered in same way.
