Extraction equipment for training facility
17 April 2013
Flextraction has delivered six wall-mounted fume and dust extraction systems to Weldability-Sif in Letchworth Garden City. Flextraction engineers have installed the equipment in the foundation level welder training facility at Stevenage Skills Centre at North Hertfordshire College.
The systems have totally selfsupporting hood positioning devices (HPDs) with 100mm diameter flared hoods equipped with mesh guards.
Flextraction has now installed in each of the 12 welding bays: 2m standard telescopic HPDs incorporating black polyester coated 100mm diameter PVC 371 hoses with a coated mild steel 100mm diameter flared hood and mesh guard. Each HPD was supplied fully assembled with wall mounting bracket, control damper and with no internal components. Each bay has an electronic airflow indicator attached to each hood to monitor extraction airflow.
