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.
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 m¬≥/h @ 150pa.
An Ezi-Duct ducting
silencer is also fitted to minimise noise created by the welding fume
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.
