The challenge

The production activities of equipment such as cooling towers, condensers and cooling installations in aid of air conditioning systems require a lot of metalworking and welding. Baltimore Aircoil concluded for itself that the extraction of welding fumes and hazardous gases in the production halls could be improved.

Therefore they decided to contact a specialist, to provide all welding workplaces in the production and assembling process with effective welding fume extraction systems. Thus guaranteeing the health and safety of its employees. First an inventory was made of all existing welding fume extraction systems. Next, Plymovent came with an offer. This proposition was discussed in depth with the employees on the work floor. “Obviously, they make use of it day in day out and know what to look for”, says Straetmans. After this, every ‘t’ was crossed and every ‘i’ dotted, and Plymovent’s proposal was adjusted and approved.
