Redesigned Bernard Clean Air Gun Minimizes Weight and Size, Maximizes Fume Extraction

Press release date: June 23, 2014

BEECHER, Ill. – Bernard has redesigned its Clean Air™ Fume Extraction Gun to be lighter and smaller than many standard fume extraction guns, providing welding operators with a more comfortable option for reducing weld fume and smoke. The new lighter-weight and smaller gun is nearly the same dimensions as a regular Bernard Semi-Automatic MIG Gun and is ideal for almost any medium- to heavy-duty solid or flux-cored welding application.áTo optimize weld fume capture, gas flow and weld access, the Clean Air Fume Extraction Gun features an easy-to-slide nozzle shroud on the front of the gun that adjusts to one of four fixed positions. The small size of the vacuum chamber further improves welding operator comfort and control by providing good joint access and visibility, while a 360-degree vacuum hose swivel on the rear of the handle improves flexibility and reduces wrist fatigue. A rubber overmold on handle adds to operator comfort and control.áThe Clean Air Fume Extraction Gun has a crush- and snag-resistant vacuum hose that maximizes maneuverability and limits hang-ups on nearby equipment or fixtures. The hose is durable enough to eliminate the need for a bulky vacuum hose cover in most applications and features threaded connections for easy replacement.áBernard offers the Clean Air Fume Extraction Gun in 400-, 500- and 600-amp models with a 45- or 60-degree neck bend to maximize wire feeding. The gun is compatible with Centerfire™, Quik Tip™ or TOUGH LOCK™ Consumables, as well as QUICK LOAD™ Liners or Universal Conventional Liners, and can be paired with vacuum systems from most major manufacturers.
