High-quality welding can be a satisfying but also very challenging and physically demanding job. It requires craftsmanship and concentration and also calls for a safe working environment. Because welding processes often generate sparks, glares and fumes, a safe and nuisance-free workplace is of utmost importance.
Unfortunately, many welders still experience nuisances on the work floor while carrying out their physically demanding jobs. In particular, the absence of proper, high-quality extraction and ventilation systems is a common problem. This article will take a look at some of the major nuisances that welders experience. But even more important: we will also look into the solutions and explain why Plymovent’s extraction and ventilation systems are designed to change things for the better.
Plymovent understands the nuisances that professional welders face. So let’s take a look at a couple of practical examples that we picked up in the field.
Healthy and safe working conditions are essential for the reputation and productivity of any organisation. Employers must limit health risks and should always take protective measures to comply with safety regulations and legislation.
Purchasing reliable equipment is a good first step towards realising a healthy and safe working environment. However, it is also important that employees accept possible changes in work routines that come with increased safety awareness. If the equipment is used incorrectly, in all likelihood, the desired result will not be achieved. It is therefore crucial to also take the workability and user-friendliness of a system into account during the purchasing process.
Welding activities and working conditions can vary greatly per industry or company. That is why Plymovent offers an efficient and workable solution that meets the highest legal (safety) standards for every situation.
Now that we have assessed the importance of finding and implementing the right solutions, let’s take a look at a couple of Plymovent products that can eliminate common welding nuisances.
Push-Pull systems can make a significant contribution to your facility, providing your welders with a cleaner, healthier and safer working environment. Advantages of Plymovent’s Push-Pull systems are:
Since it is a modular system, if you opt for Plymovent’s Push-Pull system, you won’t have to rearrange your workplace. Installing an effective Push-Pull system that meets your needs requires a thorough investigation of the workshop layout.
The Plymovent Diluter system (MDB or SCS) is a general filtration system that can control welding fumes in large facilities. The system doesn’t hinder welders when they carry out their daily tasks and is the ideal option when source extraction and hoods aren’t viable options. The solution is also ideally suited to large workshops with various welding processes, varying activities, crane transport, and for places where it is difficult to install piping (ducts).
The Diluter system recirculates the cleaned air through the workshop and ensures that little heat is lost. Air flows can be controlled individually by means of specialized nozzles.
The PersonalPro is a sturdy, versatile and comfortable welding and grinding helmet. The helmet is connected to a PAPR-unit (which refreshes the air on a regular basis) and is specially designed to provide all-day comfort. Plymovent also has a cutting and grinding helmet.
The FlexMax is the perfect extension to your welding arm and allows you to cover large working areas that have a low ceiling.
The PHV is a portable extractor. It extracts welding fumes and grinds dust near the source. The PHV can be used everywhere, even in locations that are wholly or partly inaccessible to ordinary extraction arms or mobile units.
The unit can be mounted on the wall or used as a mobile unit on wheels. The PHV is also fairly silent and equipped with an intricate start/stop system that allows you to save money on energy.
Eliminating welding nuisances is all about finding the right combination between the ideal working conditions and the proper equipment. Plymovent knows this.
