New Flyer has evaluated several welding fume control technologies and conducted its own in-house industrial hygiene testing. The “lessons learned” approach and why an off the shelf purchased solution has definite limitations will be discussed. The discussion will include some basic general ventilation requirements, local weld fume exhaust ventilation, on-gun fume extraction, weld position control, wire selection and how pulse welding contribute to the lowering of welding fume generation.
