CASE STUDY NAME
Welding Fume Extraction with Push-Pull System
Case Study Facts
Requirements and Challenges
Fruehauf Wielton is the manufacturer of semi-trailers and trailers for trucks. They produce more than 4,000 semi-trailers annually just in France. The trailers and semi-trailers production are mostly composed of many different welding processes. Therefore, the welding smoke and fume was a big problem for Fruehauf Wielton.
The welding shop is running two or three shifts per day, during the year. The welding smoke and fume is created almost all around the production plant. Therefore, it was impossible to create a welding fume extraction with typical extraction arms or hoods.
