Fitted local exhaust ventilations on workplaces for manufacturing of stainless steel workpieces

Exposition against stainless steel dust (Chromium- and Nickel compounds) formed during grinding or polishing and fumes formed during welding can be well reduced using local exhaust ventilation with collectors adjusted to the size of workpieces.
Workers may accept local exhaust ventilation more easily when the hoods do not block resp. interfere with the work process. The height of the workbench is adjustable.

Dust and welding fumes are collected directly at the points where fumes and dust are formed.
