CENFIM’s objective is to educate highly qualified and specialised
employees for the metallurgical industry in Portugal. They
organise courses of various durations and at various levels. The
Portuguese metal industry counts approx. 19,000 companies,
employing a total of 190,000 people.
In the Arcos de Valdevez training centre of CENFIM various
levels of metalworking and welding education are provided. It is
provided with state-of-the-art equipment and machinery. In a
modern environment like this a proper welding fume extraction
and filter system is self-evident.
The 12 welding cabins are situated in the corner of the practical
training room. All booths are provided with a flexible extraction
arm type Flex-2. The system is divided into two central ducts
with six extraction arms each. Before the extracted air is blown
outside by a central fan, it is filtered by an electrostatic filter
