What are Welding Fumes?
In the typical welding bay, overhead cranes, forklifts, jib cranes, and a variety of material handling equipment make it a challenge to capture hazardous welding smoke and fumes.
The fume consists of a complex mixture of metals and metallic oxides originating primarily from the filler metal but can also include the base metal and surface contaminants such as dirt, scale or lubricants. Exposure to fumes over time has been linked to respiratory, neurological and fertility problems
