Mobile Filter for continuous welding

During welding, dangerous gases and fumes can be emitted into the air that when inhaled can cause harm to the welder and the employees on the workshop floor. These particles can then enter the lungs of the employee causing serious health issues. Depending on the type of fumes they are exposed to and the length […]

Mobile Filter for occasion welding

During welding the dust emitted can include a combination of poisonous gases and particles, that when inhaled can harm the lungs. These gas particles emitted into the air can include small particles and larger particles. The smaller particles are easier to inhale and can be absorbed by the lungs quicker than the larger particles as […]

Best dust collector for sandblasting booth

Sandblasting is an abrasive application that can create high levels of dust and noise. These abrasive materials and the surfaces being blasted may contain toxic materials that when inhaled can be hazardous to employees causing ailments such as silicosis, lung cancer and breathing problems. To solve this and protect workers from lung damage and health […]

Welding fumes extraction becoming the norm in South Africa

As time goes on, more industries are becoming familiar with the dangers around the inhalation of welding fumes by welders and those within their vicinity.
