Portable Welding Fume Extractors & Wall Mount Weld Fume Collectors - W Series

Designed specifically for the collection of weld fume, the W Series portable welding fume extractor is ideal for companies that require weld fume extraction. These innovative portable fume extractors, also referred to as weld fume collectors remove harmful contaminants at the source before they can enter a welder's breathing zone and cause serious health concerns and illnesses. Routine maintenance, filter changes and collection tray disposal can all be done easily without the use of any tools.

W Series Weld Fume Collector Features

The W Series is available as a portable unit or in a wall-mount configuration to fit your specific facility needs. The WP and WP-C portable fume collectors have one extraction arm, are available with or without a filter self-cleaning function and allow for welding in multiple locations within a facility. Choose the on-board cleaning option for heavy welding applications. With the touch of a button, the 30-second pulse cleaning cycle dislodges weld particulate from the filter into the easily removable collection tray for quick disposal.

Other features of the W Series portable fume extractors include:
  • Filter pressure gauge - indicates when filters need to be changed
  • Tool tray - provides welders a convenient space to place their tools while working
  • Filter hatch clamps - allow for tool-free access to the cartridge filter and a secure lock while unit is powered
  • Collection drawer - easily slides out for quick disposal of particulate
  • Industrial-strength casters - withstand everyday movement over cables and rough surfaces
  • 20 foot power cord - enables welders to conveniently position the collector in multiple locations

W Series Portable Welding Fume Extractor

The WS and WS-C Wall-Mount Welding Fume Collectors which provide a more permanent location for weld fume collection are also easy-to-operate and non-intrusive. Choose to connect one or two extraction arms to the wall-mount filter housing cabinet to extract fume from multiple welding cells as needed.

Unsurpassed Filtration Technology

Unlike traditional or commodity media used by many manufacturers, UAS' W Series filter is unmatched in its capacity to capture and contain submicron-sized weld fume particulate. The filter's superior performance is a result of our exclusive ProTura® Nanofiber with a special blend of fire retardant media which is specifically designed for welding applications and leads the industry in performance, efficiency and value. ProTura Nanofiber filters feature a special surface treatment of synthetic fibers that creates an ultra-thin "web-like" layer to trap dust and fume particulate on the surface of the filter before it can embed deeper in the media. This nanofiber layer provides excellent surface-loading capabilities which have been independently tested and is proven to achieve higher efficiency at a lower operating pressure drop than commodity filters thus supplying cleaner air with longer filter life, reduced cleaning cycles and greater energy savings.

Benefits of W Series Weld Fume Collector Use

Protecting your workers from occupational hazards is more than just good business practice or housekeeping. Welders who are in daily contact with workplace operational hazards must be protected from exposure to weld fume contaminants which are considered respirable, or so small that they simply pass through the body's normal filtering system and go directly into the lungs which can lead to serious health concerns and illnesses. Through efficient removal of weld fume particulate, you can protect your workers' health, improve productivity and reduce lost time due to illness. The combination of UAS' ProTura Nanofiber filter technology and the W Series weld fume extractor is the best solution for weld fume extraction in the industry.
