A welding fume extraction system installed by Ezi-Duct at a Northern Queensland fabrication company is helping keep the air clean and free of smoke and dust for welders. The Townsville-based company produces equipment for the mining industry.

The welding fume extraction system installed by Ezi-Duct Queensland consisted of six 4.6m Ezi-Arm original fume arms, Ezi-Duct smooth bore modular ducting, an Ezi-Duct CBS 400 centrifugal fan and an Ezi-Duct ducting silencer.

Ezi-Duct’s Ezi-Arm fume arms come in three sizes – 2.2m, 3.0m and 4.6m. Since the welding bays at the fabrication company were quite large, the 4.6m fume arms were selected for the application. All support mechanisms of the Ezi-Arm are fitted externally to ensure the internal airflow is free from any obstructions. This makes the Ezi-Arm the best performing fume arm on the market.

The hood is manufactured from robust lightweight plastic and fitted with a robust handle, making the Ezi-Arm very light and manoeuvrable. The 4.6m Ezi-Arms are connected to Ezi-Duct smooth bore modular ducting in the roof space and then to an Ezi-Duct CBS 400 centrifugal fan.

The centrifugal fan is an industrial quality, high efficiency fan that produces around 40 per cent more airflow and pressure than a conventional fan. The 4.0 kW motor on the Ezi-Duct CBS 400 produces around 9000 m³/h @ 150pa.

An Ezi-Duct ducting silencer is also fitted to minimise noise created by the welding fume extraction system.

The client is delighted with the simple operation and performance of the Ezi-Arm fume arms in keeping smoke and fine dust away from the welders.
