The suction tables for adhesive work take over the basic concept of the tables for welding / soldering work. The type of suction and air guidance is adapted to the special requirements for adhesive work. The extraction of the pollutants generated during the bonding work takes place upwards through suction slots between the baffle plates in different planes.

Fire-rated cabinets for ATEX zones - What do I need to know
Within DSEAR, an explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of dangerous substances with air, under atmospheric conditions, in the form of gases, vapours, mist or dust in which, after ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture. You need to carry out a risk assessment to determine if your storage cabinet needs to be zoned as a hazardous area. Where there are flammable vapours present any electrical equipment that is installed needs to be ATEX rated.
Fume cupboards with ejector technology or sash? The technology comparison.
In many laboratories, classic fume cupboards with front sash are used. In practice, however, working behind the pane often means considerable compromises. The alternative is called ejector technology: we have compared both systems and show you which one is ahead.
Anyone who handles, uses or "only" stores hazardous substances cannot avoid it: the risk assessment. For 25 years it has been the central element in occupational health and safety. In our FAQs we have put together the answers to the most frequently asked questions on the subject of "Risk assessment for hazardous substances".
Thanks to welding technology, metals can be processed easily and efficiently in industry. At the same time, welding also involves some dangers. In addition to hazards such as flying sparks and UV radiation, welding fumes are formed that can be very hazardous to employees' health. To prevent damage to health, a welding fume extraction system should be installed that safely filters welding fumes out of the air.
Alternatively, a welding suit with fresh air supply can be used to protect the welder. However, this does not prevent the welding fumes from spreading and possibly causing harm to other employees. In addition, without welding fume extraction, there is a risk of an explosive atmosphere forming.
Welding fume extraction systems are available in mobile and stationary versions. Wall-mounted arms can be attached to the wall to save space and are ideal for frequent changes of position in a limited work area. Mobile extraction systems are used when the welding location is changed frequently.
All welding extraction systems are equipped with an extraction arm that is aligned to the welding point. This enables spot welding extraction and prevents the fumes from spreading already at the source. You will also find extraction systems for Ex zones in our range.
