Many different production processes create, potentially toxic, fumes which are harmful, not only to the human and the surrounding environment, but may also cause damage to machinery. Fume extractors utilize a fan to create a negative draft, which pulls fumes and dust particles into a contained filtration system, thereby trapping the hazardous contaminants and returning clean air back into the environment.
Extraction equipment can be portable, bench mounted or end of line, depending on the number of users. The filter design and construction material will be dependant on the type of fume or particle you wish to collect. Common systems will use a HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arrestor) filter to remove light dust, which is 99.97% efficient. The addition of activated carbon handles finer materials and helps to neutralise smells before returning clean air.

Every year, thousands of workers in Britain develop occupational diseases from breathing in certain dusts, fumes or other airborne contaminants at work. Local Exhaust Ventilation systems can minimise this risk and require regular testing to ensure effectivity.
