Fancort Fume Extractors

The Future of Fume Extraction

Many types of dust and fume are hazardous to health if inhaled. People can become permanently sensitised to fumes which means that continued exposure, even to very small amounts of fume, may cause asthma attacks or other respiratory diseases.

A high performance fume extraction system will help to:
  • Protect employee health.
  • Ensure compliance with Health & Safety regulations such as OSHA, NIOSH, COSHH, MAK, AFNOR and HSG258 or equivalent.
  • Increase production speeds.
  • Reduce complaints by operators due to odours, dust and vapours.
  • Avoid the possible cost of health compensation claims.
  • Reduce the cost & time to clean laser lenses, conveyors, guarding, soldering machines and other equipment.
  • Reduce product contamination.
  • Provide a better working environment.

Which Extraction System?

There are usually two types of extraction system available:

  • External - pump contaminated air outside
  • Internal - at source capture and filtration or LEV (local exhaust ventilation) system.

In our opinion the best system to use is an LEV system. These capture fumes at the source thereby preventing fumes escaping into the workplace. They also filter hazardous particles and gasses which would otherwise be pumped into the outside environment causing pollution. Using an internal filter system also avoids issues with environmental regulations and potential complaints from neighbouring businesses about fumes and odours. LEV systems sit next to the process and the extraction rate can be altered precisely to suit the application. Fancort machines are also easy to move if the process moves. LEV systems have additional benefits over external exhaust systems.
