Mo­bile Fume Cube helps keep the bad air away

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - WELDING -

New Zealand Duct & Flex in­tro­duced its ‘Fume Cube’ three years ago.

The all-in-one mo­bile unit with fan, two-part fil­tra­tion, and a 160mm, 3m reach self-sup­port­ing fume arm, is ideal for work­shops where the cost of con­tin­u­ous fil­tra­tion can­not be jus­ti­fied.

One of the first to use the Fume Cube was Bernie Klaver, se­nior en­gi­neer and work­shop man­ager at Unitech In­dus­tries in Hen­der­son.

Fol­low­ing con­stant use since 2012 in its work­shop, which in­cludes a lot of alu­minium grind­ing, weld­ing, plus gen­eral metal work, Bernie re­ports the Fume Cube is do­ing ex­actly what they wanted – ef­fec­tively deal­ing with dry im­pu­ri­ties close to where they are gen­er­ated, and tak­ing the fumes away from his welders’ faces.

“For many welders, to im­prove con­di­tions in the en­tire work­shop would be dif­fi­cult to solve with a fixed ex­trac­tion sys­tem as the work changes so much,” says Ge­off Eb­don, sales man­ager from NZ Duct & Flex.

“How­ever, with no in­stal­la­tion costs and the com­pact size of the unit, they have been an ex­tremely pop­u­lar ad­di­tion to our fume fil­tra­tion range.”

Unitech has a strong fo­cus on en­vi­ron­men­tal qual­ity and safety. The added pro­tec­tion of the Fume Cube, plus im­prov­ing work­ing con­di­tions for Bernie and his as­sis­tant Andrew, meant he could see how use­ful the Fume Cube would be with the lock­ing cas­tors, (it’s so easy to be able to re­po­si­tion the unit to where they need it).

Fi­nally they are all get­ting the ben­e­fit of the cleaner air for just the cap­i­tal out­lay of only one unit.
