Sentry Air Introduces Portable Welding Fume Extractor that Effectively Protects Welders from Hazardous Fumes
Houston, Texas - February 27, 2004 - Sentry Air Systems, Inc., a specialist in air cleaning equipment, has introduced a portable air cleaner designed and engineered to help protect welders from inhalation problems associated with toxic metallic fumes. Without protection, welders are at risk from metallic fumes coming from welding rods and other materials such as zinc oxides that could cause metal fume fever, respiratory irritation or even more serious conditions. The Sentry Portable Welding Fume Extractor incorporates patented technology to facilitate a clean, safe working environment by drawing and filtering irritating or dangerous fumes away from welding work stations. The Sentry Portable Welding Fume Extractor exceeds comparable welding air cleaners because of its unique ability to simultaneously combine high efficiency pre-filter and HEPA filtration. Strong suction through the hood inlet helps to minimize welder exposure during MIG, TIG, Stick, Tack, and various maintenance welding operations.
The freestanding fan/filter unit on the floor frees up much needed workspace, and achieves air volume of 350 CFM (High) to 50 CFM (Low). Constructed of 16-ga. Carbon steel, this modular unit has a proven record of almost maintenance-free reliability. The unit weighs only 40 lbs. and incorporates a 6" round, 58" long flex arm that is self-supporting for easy positioning, and it provides source capture of welding fumes and vapors. Electrical connections need no special attention since the unit operates on 115/1/60@ approximately 2 amps. A variety of replaceable filters are available, and the unit achieves efficiencies up to 99.97%@ .3 microns with HEPA filters.
