New from Wilkinson Star is the F-Tech Fume technology range of high vacuum fume extraction systems and welding torches.

Welders and operatives can be exposed to welding fumes, grinding dust and oil mist in the working environment. It is therefore obligatory for employers to create safe and healthy working conditions for operatives by reducing these health risks.

The F-Tech Armur is a high vacuum dust extraction system offering a mobile solution to extract dust from manual welding and grinding processes. The Armur unit features a high performance German motor and a choice of 3m suction Armoflex or Armotech cantilever arm and a user friendly digital panel with hour meter, clogged filter alarm. This unit offers E12 99.5% filter efficiency and comes with a 5-year warranty on both 110V and 230V models.

The F-Tech Pocket is a portable extraction unit designed to extract and filter fumes from welding processes, micro dust, vapours and odours. At only 20kg, it is a robust unit with a practical long handle perfect for site work and those difficult to reach areas. This unit has a 2m hose fitted with a plastic extraction nozzle. The Pocket also has a filter efficiency of E12 99.5% and comes with a 2-year warranty. Additional features include an hourmeter, and it is available in 110 and 230 Volt.
