Polex has supplied and installed a welding fume extraction system at John Holland Rail, Parkes NSW.
Fume extraction was required as a result of excessive welding smoke being generated from several areas of their workshop.
Welding smoke is both harmful to the health of operators and harmful to the environment.
Polex designed, supplied and installed a fume extraction system consisting of a 5.5kW centrifugal extraction fan, 4 articulated fume arms (3m and 4m reach) and Galvanised adjoining ductwork.
The articulated fume arms are flexible and durable. The articulated fume arms are designed specifically with a smooth bore to reduce air resistance and consequently increase suction.
Polex equipment can be manufactured to suit specific space constraints.
