The PHV is a high-vacuum portable welding fume extractor

The PHV is a portable welding fume extractor that extracts welding fumes and grinding dust near the source. The PHV can be used everywhere, even in locations that are not or hardly accessible to ordinary extraction arms or mobile fume extractors. The unit can be mounted on the wall or used as a mobile fume extractor, on wheels.

Recommended for


  • Long filter lifespan of the Dura-H filter cartridge.
  • Safe, easy operation
  • Automatic start/stop system, saving energy costs
  • Low noise level
  • Four-stage filtration system

Ease of use

The integrated automatic start/stop device makes it easy to operate the portable welding fume extractor PHV. The unit turns on automatically, as soon as welding starts and turns off automatically as soon as the welding activities stop. This user-friendly feature guarantees its effectiveness in removing welding fumes, reduces the sound levels and saves energy.


The portable welding fume extractor PHV-I version (according W3) is additionally provided with a filter pollution indicator and sound signal.

How does the portable welding fume extractor work

The PHV unit extracts the welding fumes at the source, near the welding process. Separation and filtration takes place in five steps and ensures a filtration efficiency of almost 100%*.

The tangential inlet starts with the cyclonic separation of the larger particles.

Two spark arresters prevent sparks from reaching the filter cartridge. A removable and cleanable aluminium pre filter captures the larger particles while the integrated spark arrester captures the finer particles.

The Dura-H main filter cartridge has a surface of 129 ft2 (12 m2), resulting in a long filter lifespan and a consistent high filtration thanks to the alternately sealed channel technology.

The optional activated carbon filter (FAC-HV) neutralizes unpleasant smells.

The final HEPA* filter guarantees the high filtration efficiency. The HEPA filter makes the PHV suitable for stainless steel welding fume applications and is fitted as standard.

This (lonely) cart needs the help of a hose and a nozzle

Combine the portable welding fume extractor with one of the following hose lengths:

  • Extraction hose: 8, 16, 24.5 ft (2.5, 5 or 7.5 m)


The portable fume extractor has 2 nozzle options:

  • EN-20: Funnel nozzle
  • EN-40: Slit extraction nozzle
