Fume Extraction Gun
Bernard (Beecher, IL) has announced the FILTAIR®Fume Extraction Gun, which is available in 300- and 400-amp configurations and is ideal for solid wire welding applications. The gun features a vacuum regulator at the front of the handle, which allows for balance of suction with shielding gas flow to protect against porosity, and ensures efficient source capture and welding performance. The gun’s smaller vacuum chamber allows for better joint access and increased visibility, while a smaller, lightweight handle (compared to the Clean Air Gun) features a vacuum hose swivel at the rear of the handle for improved operator comfort and control. The gun is composed of a chrome-plated front end that resists spatter adhesion and features a 50-degree neck bend, which provides excellent wire feeding characteristics, says the company.
