In today’s industrial landscape, where the importance of clean and safe working environments is paramount, investing in efficient air pollution control equipment like a quality fume extractor is not just an option but a necessity. The Fume Extractor unit designed and developed by Powertech Pollution Controls and marketed under the brand of FumeKiller®, stands out as an exemplar in this domain, designed to safeguard the health of employees and ensure optimum operational efficiency in diverse industrial settings.
How Does the FumeKiller® Work?
The FumeKiller®, a top-of-the-line welding fume extractor and soldering fume extractor, that operates on the straightforward yet effective principle of electrostatic precipitation. Each unit is equipped with electrostatic filtration modules for filtration of air that passes through. The filter modules are 2-stage electrostatic filters, where the first stage consists of parallel plates that are charged at a voltage of 10kV and the second stage consists of plates that are alternatively charged (positive and negative) at 5kV. When any kind of fumes, smoke, mist, or dust passes through the FumeKiller®, the particulate matter is charged with a heavy positive charge in the first stage. When passing through the second stage of filtration, the positively charged particles stick on the to the negatively charged plates after which the filtered air is let out from the outlet.
The FumeKiller® extracts the contaminated air from the workplace, purifying it from harmful fumes and particles and then releasing clean air back into the environment. This cycle ensures the consistent maintenance of a wholesome working atmosphere, protecting workers from potential health hazards associated with prolonged exposure to industrial fumes and contributing significantly to air pollution control.
Advantages of using the FumeKiller®:
As a fume extractor, what sets the FumeKiller® apart from the regular mechanical filters is the pressure difference. Mechanical filters require more pressure difference to be created on either side of the filter to ensure effective filtration of the fume or dust particles. On the other hand, the FumeKiller® units do not have any blockage on the path of the air flowing through it, which directly implies that the pressure difference is significantly lower. Because of this, the FumeKiller® units also boast a significant reduction in the power consumption for their operation.
The FumeKiller® has a high-efficiency of filtration, effectively filtering over 90 – 95% of fume or dust particles that pass through it. In particular, the device’s efficiency in dealing with welding and soldering fumes, marks it as an invaluable asset for industries engaged in these operations.
The Significance of Investing in a Quality Fume Extractor
Why should industries prioritize incorporating a fume extractor like the FumeKiller into their operations? Beyond ensuring compliance with occupational health and safety standards, a high-quality fume extractor plays a pivotal role in protecting the well-being and productivity of employees. By mitigating exposure to harmful fumes, businesses can reduce health-related absenteeism and medical expenses, ensuring a more productive, healthier, and more satisfied workforce.
The FumeKiller® Fume Extractor: A Step Towards Optimal Air Pollution Control
In a world where industries are increasingly held accountable for their environmental footprint, investing in a quality welding fume extractor or soldering fume extractor like the FumeKiller® is a progressive step. The device’s efficiency in purifying air aligns with global efforts towards better air quality, showcasing a company’s commitment to environmental sustainability and the welfare of its employees.
