Soldering Fume Extraction

Soldering Fume Extraction
Many work environments today, including  soldering and adhesives application, create particles and gases that can be harmful to the work place and the environment. Most people think that the move to leadfree soldering would be more nature friendly. In reality leadfree soldering smoke emissions contain more breathable fine dust particles. More smaller particles are produced due to higher working temperatures required and because more flux is used in the soldering process.

In many countries legal regulations governing  clean air in the work place require that hazar dous substances are removed from the air in order to avoid harmful effects on people and machines.

It is important to use the correct safety equipment to remove these hazardous substances. Inhaling fine particles is more dangerous than big particles as these get caught more easily and block the alveoli in the lungs.

To protect the operator it is important to use an extraction system that is able to separate these particles and gases and then re-circulates the  cleaned air back into the work place. This also saves energy and reduces energy costs.
