GP Groot

It was clear that GP Groot needed a flexible solution to extract its welding fumes as GP Groot deals with all kinds of sizes of metal workpieces. Therefore fixed extraction arms –mounted to the wall or onto standards– were no option.

West Coast College

West Coast College required an engineered solution that would benefit the students, lecturers and the school in general, that was easy to use and maintain. The automation of the system has also proved to be beneficial from an energy saving perspective as well as a reduction in noise levels.


The Push-Pull system has appeared to be an effective and economic solution. The working conditions have been improved considerably and the same goes for the productivity. Also the welders are very pleased with the Push-Pull system.

The risks of improper use of filters

6 May 2024 Filters

According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), welding fumes are confirmed as being carcinogenic. To prevent your personnel from exposure to risks to their health, it's important to install an air purification system that delivers high quality. That quality depends on the filter, or the 'lungs' of the system. What risks do you run if you use an incorrect (replacement) filter? Michel Ligthart, Product and International Sales Manager at Plymovent, answers some of the most common questions.
