We are eager to help more customers in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin improve health, safety, and productivity with weld fume extraction systems.

 

Source Capture Weld Fume Solutions

The collection and removal of weld fumes is essential for keeping people and the environment safe, and for assuring that processes stay productive and profitable. Whenever possible, source capture is the best choice for weld fume extraction. 

Effective source capture requires the correct positioning of a fume extractor with appropriate airflow for the application. A well-positioned fume arm or extraction hood draws hazardous weld fumes away from the breathing zone of the welder. Another highly effective type of source capture is the integrated fume extraction MIG welding gun, which assures the welder is breathing the cleanest air possible.

Fume Extraction Arms

Glacier Technology offers Plymovent fume extractor arms in various working reaches to provide weld fume capture at the source. Extraction arms can be implemented with extension booms if additional reach is needed, or they may be installed on a rail for unlimited reach.

Portable Fume Collectors

Our Plymovent portable collectors are mobile filter units designed to remove welding fumes on-site in confined areas and spaces that are difficult to reach by fixed welding fume extraction systems. Portable fume collectors are suitable for many welding applications such as MIG, MAG, TIG, GMAW, FCAW and stick electrode welding.

Fume Exhaust Hoods

The innovative Air-Port Welding Hood developed by Imperial Systems is available from Glacier Technology. The Air-Port eliminates many of the weaknesses found in standard designs. The two-leg design means plenty of room for movement around the welding station so welders can get where they need to be. Multiple Air-Port welding hoods can be lined up in a modular layout for a clean and efficient shop.
