D/F Smoke Extractor
The D/F Machine Specialties Smoke Extractor Assembly is designed for fume extraction and will efficiently remove smoke fumes from the weld area. The fume extractor sits very near the end of the nozzle, but is built so that it will not disrupt shielding gas flow. The smoke extractor is also adjustable in the amount of fumes it removes from the weld area by changing its position on the front of the torch. Connection to the various manufacturers' fume extractor systems is made easy with the use of adapters. This assembly can be ordered to fit either of our two sizes of MIG Water-Cooled Nozzles, standard and high capacity (Series A), which allows the fume extractor to fit our complete line of Water-Cooled and Air-Cooled MIG torches.

In the metal fabrication and cutting processes there are several potentially hazardous residuals including smoke, fumes and particulates which should be acknowledged. These three can not only affect the welder but the work area as well, especially in an enclosed environment.
Proper ventilation should always be addressed and monitored in a welding cell or station. Uncontained residuals can negatively affect employee health. Without proper ventilation, a welder could be breathing hazardous smoke or fumes, or inhaling particulates that will get stuck in the lungs. These effects will lead to employee downtime, and ultimately lost profits.
Smoke and fume extractors vary in technique depending on the circumstances. In any case, the goal of the extraction is to capture the fumes as close to the source as possible. At D/F we provide a simple smoke extraction unit that can be applied to any of our torches. These units sit right above the gas nozzle, extremely close to the work, and can be adjusted for optimal extraction without disrupting shielding gas flow.
