Projects Space

Room for projects

The equipment includes but not limited to:

1. PLYMOVENT Mobile Fume Extractor

The PLYMOVENT MFD ULTRA is a mobile welding fume extractor which uses disposable filters. This mobile fume extractor comes with the UltraFlex-4 extraction arm and is robustly designed to effectively remove hazardous welding and grinding fumes. The UltraFlex-4 is a top of the line extraction arm and comes with a built-in work lamp and automatic start/stop sensor. This combination offers welders and fabricators an extremely effective, flexible and user friendly solution to capture fumes. The MFD fume extractor comes with a filter replacement indicator, simplifying service and maintenance. The MFD ULTRA is optimal for small welding and fabrication shops, plant maintenance, schools and general fabrication and production facilities demanding a mobile fume extractor that can protect their personnel from hazardous fumes in multiple locations.
