Donaldson Company, a global manufacturer of innovative filtration products and solutions, has released the Torit Downflo Ambient (DFA) weld fume extractor that gives fabricators the ability to weld in a variety of different workstation configurations.
“This new collector provides a complementary solution to a challenging problem: effective weld fume extraction without duct work or hoods,” explains Todd Smith, VP of Global Industrial Air Filtration. “Facility managers need welding equipment and supporting tools that are flexible enough for changing layouts and workflows. When developing the DFA, we listened to welder needs.”
According to Smith, the new DFA weld fume extractor saves floor space and comes prewired with an integrated control panel, making installation flexible and easy.
“Maintenance is simplified too, with an easy-to-handle dust disposal drawer and tool-free hinged access doors that allow for turnkey filter changeouts,” he adds.
Designed to collect fumes from the welding field as they rise and recirculate clean air, the DFA uses Donaldson proprietary Ultra-Web media technology. Proven and proprietary, the Ultra-Web filter technology delivers long filter life, clean air and cost savings over the life of a collector.
The DFA adds to a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for weld fume mitigation using source and ambient extraction methods. Donaldson provides one-on-one consultations, customizable options, and support for maintenance and data services with every system.
