High Vacuum on Torch

Recent advances in welding torch technology mean that harmful weld fumes can be captured using a welding torch with built in nozzles for fume extraction connected to a high vacuum extraction unit. Stand-alone weld fume extractors can be used or, for larger workshops ducted extraction systems can be installed. On torch extraction has the advantage over traditional systems as the extraction is always on when welding and the operator does not need to continually reposition the extraction hood.
