Solder Fume

Rosin-based solder flux fume is a cause of occupational asthma.  Rosin is as a flux in the electrical and electronics industries and soldering in plumbing etc.

This solder fume is considered a leading cause of occupational asthma which could be permanent and irreversible.

There are mechanical ways to control solder fume in every industry for example education, R&D, electronics etc.  Compliance LEV will work with you to design and install suitable and compliant LEV systems to meet your production needs and budget.

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.

Installing an LEV system is a great way to control solder fumes to keep people safe and therefore meet your legal obligations.

Compliance LEV can specify, price and install the correct LEV system as a complete solution provider.
