Weld Schools and Fume Collection
Introduction to Weld Fume Collection for Weld Schools
With the current upsurge in domestic manufacturing, demand for welders is strong. Recruiters, however, are having difficulty filling welding positions. As the Baby Boom generation retires, a new generation of skilled workers is not in line to replace them. Young people are choosing jobs in the service industry, and a skills gap is growing wider and wider. Weld schools are hoping to remedy that problem.
As weld schools increase their enrollment and build new facilities, they will need to be mindful of managing their air quality. Any welding operation creates fumes that must be controlled, and a weld school, as might be expected, is no exception. The fumes created in such a facility need to be managed in order to protect students and faculty and to comply with federal regulations. Fortunately, the technology exists to capture weld fumes effectively and efficiently.
