Fume ventilation simulation program calculates, displays welding fume concentration

February 13, 2012

Plymovent has developed the FumeSimulator to help customers visualize the background concentration of welding fumes in their production facilities when using the company's general ventilation and filtration systems, such as Push-Pull and Diluter.

The program calculates and displays the concentration of welding fumes with the use of a customized system, showing whether or not the welding fumes stay within the desired limits. The simulation depends on input from the customer that indicates which welding activities take place, how many welders and welding machines are present, and how many hours per day welding is performed.

The simulator generates a report showing the concentration of welding fumes in the production facility.
