Henry Depina [Engineering Manager] of Ferguson Perforating in Providence, Rhode Island, has purchased three Sentry Air Model 450 Portable Floor Sentrys [Model SS-450-PFS]. This perforating and fabricating subcontractor utilizes these Fume Extractors in their welding cell:
Types of Welding They Complete
MIG, TIG, Stick and Contact Welding
Types of Metals Being Welded
Aluminum, Steel and Stainless Steel
How have the operators reacted when having to use the fume extractors? Were they resistant to use at first?
“There was no resistance from the operators, especially when they were made aware of the level of filtering they were getting with the new equipment. The most vocal comments have come from the non-welding operators in the adjacent cells who are thrilled that there are no fumes drifting into their areas.”
“We have three SS-450-PFS Sentry Fume Extractors in our Welding cell and plan to add another unit in our maintenance department. The fact that we can get 950 CFM out of a 20″ x 20″ x 14″ Ht fume extractor is amazing.”
