Solder Fume FAQ

There are a number of serious occupational health risks associated with Solder Fume exposure. These include long lasting occupational asthma, bronchitis and headaches, to name just a few.

We supply mobile extractors that filter the fume from the solder job and return clean air into the facility and save money on heat due to re-circulation.

However, we also supply and install fixed systems which can typically ventilate externally, removing the need for three stage filtration. Fixed systems offer multiple arms, which are attached to a larger extraction fan. Larger facilities can benefit from multiple extraction points where there are multiple workers or students to protect from dangerous solder fumes.
