Extractability introduce the ProtectoXtract
Division of Weldability-Sif launches new mobile welding fume extraction unit with filtration
EXTRACTABILITY, a division of Weldability-Sif and a UK-based ‘one-stop source’ for all welding fume extraction solutions, have recently launched the ProtectoXtract mobile welding fume extraction unit with filtration that has been approved by the DGUV/IFA (Institute of Occupational Health Standards).
This approved mobile extraction system provides filtration of metal particulate fumes, dusts and some gases, and can be used where welding and grinding applications take place.
Weighing just 80kg, the ProtectoXtract is supplied on swivel casters for manoeuvrability and operates from a 110V/230V mains input supply.
Designed for use in a welding bay, workshop or garage, each unit is provided with a 3m fully positional cantilever arm and hood. The 3m suction arm hose with internal joints provides air movement of 2,500 cubic metres per hour.
Moreover, the ProtectoXtract utilizes a four-stage filtration system with an efficiency of >99%, as well as an acoustic housing which meets the current low noise emissions (<68dB(A)).
When used with processes that produce weld spatter or hot metal particles, the optional EXT980005 aluminium pre-filter must be used. Compliant with DIN EN ISO 15012-1: 03/2005, it is suitable for category W3 stainless welding fumes (>30% Ni+Cr).
With a motor power of 1.1kW, the ProtectoXtract mobile fume extractor and filtration unit has exterior dimensions of 580mm x 580mm x 900mm.
A number of accessories are available to complement the unit, including replacement ‘gross’, ‘pre’ and ‘main’ filters, as well as replacement activated-carbon filters, optional spark-arrestor filters and optional grinding filters.
