BMG’s products and solutions for welding fume extraction

BMG’s Tools & Equipment division has introduced a range of specialist products, systems and services to assist industry to create a healthy and safe work environment, by reducing the risks associated with welding and cutting fumes, grinding dust and oil mist.

“Global industry has instituted new legislation – even in agriculture – to protect workers from the harmful effects of welding. We at BMG believe local businesses need to be more cognisant about the hazards of welding fumes and how important it is to protect workers’ health through the extraction and control of welding fumes,” states Andrew Johns, business unit manager, Tools and Equipment division, BMG. “Airborne welding fumes are a mixture of metal fumes and gases produced during welding operations, that are harmful to workers. Toxic welding fumes can contain a mixture of manganese, chromium VI, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and ozone – which cause serious short and long-term health problems.

“In line with BMG’s commitment to keeping abreast with global trends, the company ensures its customer base has access to the latest equipment and advanced technologies in all sectors. Through our broad product portfolio and technical solutions service, we play a critical role in local industry to ensure a cleaner, safer and healthier workplace. The process of ensuring clean air in the work environment involves various phases, from analysis and design, to supply, installation, commissioning and ongoing support.

“Our welding products and services are tailored to meet specific customer requirements and encompass source extraction, personal protection equipment (PPE), general filtration and extraction hoods.

“International standards for the preferred order in which welding fumes should be captured, are firstly source extraction, which contributes significantly to a better work environment. The next step is the provision of adequate PPE, followed by the separation of source and worker by automation, for example via extraction hoods. General filtration and ventilation systems are also critical in keeping the concentration of welding fumes within legal limits, according to international guidelines. The most effective solution for a cleaner workshop, is normally a combination of all these methods.”

BMG’s Plymovent solutions for source extraction include portable fans, fume extractors and extraction hoses, mobile and stationary welding fume filter units with integrated fans.
