Adaptable to various work locations and welding applications, X-Tractor 1GC filters air contaminated with welding dust, smoke, and fumes and re-circulates it into work environment. Vacuum system automatically switches on as welder begins to weld and switches off 15 sec after welder stops. Weighing 37 lb, unit is suited for light-duty welding use, uses single fume gun, and features 2 motors and internal manual cleaning system.
Original Press Release:
Lincoln Electric's X-Factor
Cleveland - Lincoln Electric announces the X-Tractor fume extractor, a portable, high-vacuum system designed for the removal and filtration of welding fumes.
Designed to reduce welding dust, smoke and fumes in the work environment, X-Tractor 1GC securely filters contaminated air and re-circulates it into the work area. With proper use, this could result in a cleaner work environment and significant energy cost reduction.
Because of its portability at only 37 lbs., the X-Tractor 1GC is perfect for light-duty welding use such as light fabrication, maintenance and construction applications.
The X-Tractor 1GC increases worker flexibility through its ability to adapt to various work locations and welding applications including stick, TIG, MIG and flux cored. A start/stop sensor offers less energy consumption and non-continuous noise. The unit automatically switches on as the welder begins to weld. It automatically switches off approximately 15 seconds after the welder stops welding.
The X-Tractor 1GC uses a single fume gun, or a variety of suction nozzle attachments are available. Since the hoses and suction nozzles are smaller than those of low-vacuum systems, it is much easier to carry the extraction nozzle and/or flex hose into confined spaces. The mobility of the hoses allows the main filter unit to be kept at a central location.
The X-Tractor 1GC features two powerful motors and has a unique internal manual cleaning system. Using a customer supplied air source and manual rotation, the internal rotary air jet device supplies a burst of air from inside the filter cartridges. This in turn causes the particulate that has collected on the outside of the filter cartridge to drop into the bottom of the unit. The cover where the flex hose inlet is located is then removed and the particulate can be disposed of according to federal, state, and local environmental regulations.
