Design tool that visualises the concentration of welding fumes

The FumeSimulator is a design tool that visualises the concentration of welding fumes.

The FumeSimulator is a design tool and simulation programme all-in-one. Purchasing a high-quality general ventilation and filtration system, such as the
Push-Pull or Diluter system, is a longterm investment. Therefore, it is important for us that the customer stands behind the chosen solution for 100%.

The FumeSimulator visualises the background concentration of welding fumes in a production facility. It confirms the effectiveness of the general ventilation and filtration systems. The simulation shows whether the welding fumes, in the concerning system solution, stay within the desired (legal) limits. Hereby the FumeSimulator offers certainty regarding the effectiveness of this investment. The FumeSimulator uses CFD technology (Computational Fluid Dynamics) creating a simulation.



The reliability of the simulation is related to the input of the customer. The customer must, for an accurate simulation, indicate which welding activities take place, how many welders and/or welding machines are present, how many hours per day welding is performed, etc. The Project Engineering team of Plymovent verifies that data. The data, together with the chosen system solution, are the input for the FumeSimulator.
