Removing Welding Fumes According to ACGIH Guidelines

FumeVacs FV-500-20 weld fume source capture system with Ergomax fume gun is designed to meet stringent ACGIH guidelines, as well as OSHA standards, for mitigating harmful welding fumes, including manganese and hexavalent chromium.

"With a superior air flow rating, the FumeVac system captures fumes and dust that others cannot," said a company spokesperson. "Key to the system's ability to create a safer, healthier work environment is the ErgoMax MIG gun. Designed to perform in even the most challenging welding environments, ErgoMax MIG guns offer the highest volume throughput of any competing guns."

"Compared to older fume guns that are heavy and bulky, the ErgoMax gun is lightweight because it moves more air, effectively cooling the gun and allowing for a lighter design," continued the spokesperson. "Its 360° ball-joint flexible design and ergonomic handle additionally help reduce operator fatigue and enhance maneuverability and adaptability to a wide array of work positions. Constructed of high-quality, durable materials, including copper alloy tips and crush- and heat-resistant vacuum hoses, the ErgoMax gun is designed for a long service life and easy maintenance."

Both models-400A and 500A-come with low-friction liners to provide enhanced wire feeding performance for consistent arc starts and weld stability. A polished nickel-plated metallic outer neck tube provides additional heat dissipation for cool operation, and a simple, high-strength stainless steel trigger provides additional durability.

The gun works in conjunction with the FV-500-20 high-vacuum extractor to provide optimal filtration-as high as 99.97%. Multiple configurations are available, including a four-gun continuous duty unit. It can be adapted to handle up to eight guns of intermittent duty.

An optional system component is the FumeVac welding boom that provides added reach, expanding the available work space. Available in multiple lengths to adapt to most applications, the boom features simple hand crank height adjustment, integral components for high vacuum delivery and more.
