Lincoln Electric Introduces New Modular Fume Extraction Hood and Statiflex® Filter BanksModular extraction hood and filter banks provide solution for weld fume control
Cleveland – Lincoln Electric has introduced a new modular extraction hood and filter bank system, designed for the removal of welding fume and grinding particulate during welding, cutting, arc gouging, grinding, plasma cutting and finishing operations in manufacturing plants, job shops and training environments.
These units may be adapted to most applications, including robotic welding, hard automation welding, semi-automatic and manual welding.
The system’s modularity makes it easy for users to assemble, with the option to hang the hood in place from the ceiling or deploy as a free standing unit with the support of optional leg mounting kits. The sleek and lightweight design of the system makes it easy to mount and set up, and it’s available in a variety of sizes to fit your work station footprint.
The Modular Extraction Hood features semi-transparent welding strips (non-transparent curtain strips are also available), which keep the area contained to prevent cross drafts and control airflow direction to maximize extraction effectiveness. The hood’s unique double panel roof configuration acts as an in-line baffle, deflection plate and spark arrestor to prevent sparks from entering the duct work. Lincoln perimeter pull technology maximizes fume extraction efficiency at lower airflow rates for reduced energy consumption and equipment costs while enhancing overall safety performance.
