Nederman keeps welding fume under control 24/7

The new Fume Eliminator 24/7 from Nederman is a high vacuum mobile extraction unit specifically designed for extracting welding fume 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Capture of welding fume at source before it enters the welder’s breathing zone is often achieved using self-supporting moveable hoods, but these hoods can require frequent repositioning. Nederman now takes on-torch fume extraction innovation to a new level with the Fume Eliminator 24/7. Available in two variants, the FE24/7 1.5 has a 1.5KW side channel fan and is suitable for a single welding torch or nozzle, whereas the FE24/7 2.5 houses a larger 2.5KW fan and can provide on-torch extraction from two welders simultaneously.

The air flow can easily be adjusted to a maximum rate of 190m3/hour for the 1.5KW unit and up to 270m3/hour for the more powerful 2.5KW version. This ensures the FE24/7 can meet the demands of most welding applications, improving productivity and enhancing energy efficiency in the process.

The new automatic filter cleaning technology in the FE24/7 ensures remarkably long filter life with low operating costs whilst an integrated spark trap protects the FE24/7 from sparks and minimizes the risk of damage to the filter cartridge.

The Class W3 (certification pending) FE24/7 is a fully mobile unit, with the FE24/7 1.5 and the FE24/7 2.5 weighing in at 42kg and 59kg respectively. To further enhance ease-of-use, the manual start/stop FE24/7 is also offered with an optional automatic stop facility that fits with Nederman’s energy efficiency philosophy.
