Challenge

  • Filtering out the fumes generated in the welding process in manufacturing of one of Client’s signature products
  • The work load on the welding line had grown significantly in recent times and this in turn meant more smoke and fumes on the shop floor
  • The additional load on the welding line meant the ESPs that were previously installed on the welding lines were running out of capacity

Approach

  • SFS’s team visited the Client’s plants to study the patterns of welding fumes and plant layout
  • The team designed a layout with multiple, stand-alone filter units serving 2-3 welding stations each

Solution

  • SFS deployed its newly developed Mobile Fume Extractors on the line
  • The Client’s maintenance team chose to opt for SFS’s AMC to ensure optimum filtration performance
  • With timely maintenance life of the filter cartridges was improved by up to 36 months
