Welders Supplies logoReducing welding fumes is a common goal these days, fume extraction and respiratory solutions are critical tools for employee health and safety.  There are many fume extraction and respiratory solutions to limit the amount of particulate emitted into the environment.  Source capture through fume extraction is the best method for eliminating the weld fume from the air.  Fume extraction solutions come in multiple shapes and sizes, portable/mobile for light weight extraction, stationary/wall mounted models, fume guns with built in fume extraction to centralized industrial multi-cell systems.  Source capture is preferred because it removes contaminated air at the source before it reaches a worker’s breathing zone.

welding tip of the dayA 'Welding Tip of the Day" is brought to you from our Technical Representatives ...

Picking the correct nozzle length for your MIG (GMAW) welding operation is important.  If you are welding thin gauge metal a short nozzle is a must. A contact tip should be flush or extended to provide good puddle control, consistent penetration, and greater visibility.  Thicker materials, and metal or flux cored wires, require the tip to be recessed within the nozzle.  A longer nozzle protects the tip for higher ampere requirements.  Below 250 amps the tip should be flush.  Below 150 amps the tip should be extended.
