Our technology can help you comply with the current ACGIH threshold limit value of 0.02 mg/m3 of manganese oxide. Test results were satisfactory with various welding parameters and working positions.

Most Popular Welding Fume Extractors

Protect your health by extracting pollutants at the source! We provide durable and economical solutions tailored to fit YOUR needs. Our products have been designed to last for decades and offer the lowest total possession cost in the industry.

Fume Extraction MIG

This is the most efficient and cost-effective solution for MIG welding fumes. We have engineered AIRGOMIG fume extraction guns to offer a fume-free environment and porosity-free welds for every application and welding parameter.

Advantages & applications
  • Optimal fume capture rate for MIG welding
  • Always well-positioned

Fume Extraction Arm

A fume extraction arm will do a fantastic job for most welding processes and every project. Henlex extraction arms are the toughest, made to work in every environment. No plastics, no flexible hoses, no maintenance.

Advantages & applications
  • Works for all welding processes
  • Low maintenance

Extraction Nozzles

When a fume extraction MIG gun is not an option and you need the flexibility an extraction arm can’t provide. We offer a variety of extraction nozzles for a welding fumes-free environment, even in confined spaces.

Advantages & applications
  • Works for confined space when a fume extraction MIG gun isn’t used
  • Flexible solution

Downdraft Tables

Grinding and plasma cutting often go hand in hand with welding. Our downdraft tables will do a perfect job of extracting fumes and dust. They are made for heavy-duty applications, and their dimensions can be customized.

Advantages & applications
  • Optimal fume capture rate for grinding and cutting
  • Always well-positioned

Fume Extraction Hoods

Fume extraction hoods cannot protect a welder as their head would be between the welding area and the hood itself. But they are perfect for robotic welding and offer an unmatched fume extraction efficiency in this case.

Advantages & applications
  • Optimal fume capture rate for robots
  • Low maintenance

Custom Projects

We have designed fume and dust extractors for many applications to meet our customers’ needs over the years. We can help you control the emissions of many processes, like a portable grinder, a plasma cutting table, etc.

Advantages & applications
  • Fume and dust extraction for other processes you may use
  • A solution tailored to your needs

We will provide you with the perfect vacuum unit and dust collection system for your application.

Portable Units



Dust Collectors

We also offer a wide range of services, including installation, maintenance, technical drawings for installations or approbations, and parts sales. We will be as involved as you need us to be. We could just supply the equipment you need or do turnkey projects.

Why Welding Fumes Extraction at the Source?

Welding fume extraction at the source is the most efficient way of capturing and removing dangerous contaminants. Strict rules and regulations exist to protect employees and ensure a safe working environment. A well-designed fume extraction system in your facility will help you meet these requirements and regulations. But there are other advantages as well.

Demonstrating a commitment to employee health and well-being will also help attract and retain a highly-skilled workforce. It does not only apply to welders. Residual fumes can affect all your employees.

Proper fume extraction can help reduce employee sicknesses such as metal fume fever. Having your employees show up every day is easier to manage, but it also significantly impacts your bottom line.

Keeping your facility free of contaminated air and dust particles decreases maintenance downtime and reduces the risk of fires or explosions. You will also save on heating and cooling costs by reducing the amount of heated or cooled air extracted from the premises.

Employee Retention

It is easier to attract and keep welders in a cleaner and safer environment.

Increased Productivity

Keeping your workers healthy will reduce your absence rate.

Protects Resources

A fume-free environment protects your equipment and processes.
