Informa Exhibitions Ltd regrets to announce the closure of Solids & Bulk Handling magazine.

Solids & Bulk Handling magazine has been affected by the ongoing downward trend of on-the-page marketing spend. This combined with the economic pressures that the loose and solids handling industry face has ultimately led to the sad and difficult decision to cease publishing the magazine.

The November/December 2017 issue of Solids & Bulk Handling will be its last edition.

Nederman keeps welding fume under control 24/7 October 11, 2017

Nederman keeps welding fume under control 24/7
Leading manufacturer of industrial air filtration technology recently used the Schweissen und Schneiden (Welding & Cutting) exhibition in Düsseldorf to introduce its new ‘at-source’ extraction technology for the welding industry. The new Fume Eliminator 24/7 from Nederman is a high vacuum mobile extraction unit specifically designed for extracting welding fume twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

Nederman acted on feedback from customers which indicated that whilst the existing Fume Eliminator is a popular product it is only suitable for occasional welding and not continuous use, and that there was a need in the market for a continuously rated mobile unit. Hence the need for the Fume Eliminator 24/7.

Capture of welding fume at source before it enters the welder’s breathing zone is often achieved using self-supporting moveable hoods, but these hoods can require frequent repositioning. An alternative method for continuous wire welding processes is the use of on-torch fume extraction. Nederman now takes on-torch fume extraction innovation to a new level with the Fume Eliminator 24/7. Available in two variants, the FE24/7 1.5 has a 1.5KW side channel fan and is suitable for a single welding torch or nozzle, whereas the FE24/7 2.5 houses a larger 2.5KW fan and can provide on-torch extraction from two welders simultaneously.

The air flow can easily be adjusted to a maximum rate of 190m3/hour for the 1.5KW unit and up to 270m3/hour for the more powerful 2.5KW version. This ensures the FE24/7 can meet the demands of most welding applications, improving productivity and enhancing energy efficiency in the process. The primary objective of Nederman is to create a safe working environment with high production efficiency and the new automatic filter cleaning facility on the FE24/7 corresponds with this philosophy. The new automatic filter cleaning technology in the FE24/7 ensures remarkably long filter life with low operating costs whilst an integrated spark trap protects the FE24/7 from sparks and minimizes the risk of damage to the filter cartridge.

Filtered air can be re-circulated from the FE24/7 even when particulate is from high alloy steel (EN 15012) and other challenging materials. The smaller FE24/7 1.5 operates with a 230V 50Hz single phase power supply that generates a vacuum of up to 35kPa. The slightly larger FE24/7 2.5 requires a 400V 50Hz 3-phase power supply to generate a vacuum of up to 37.5kPa.

The Class W3 (certification pending) FE24/7 is a fully mobile unit, with the FE24/7 1.5 and the FE24/7 2.5 weighing in at a reassuringly robust yet manoeuvrable 42kg and 59kg respectively. To further enhance ease-of-use, the manual start/stop FE24/7 is also offered with an optional automatic stop facility that fits with Nederman’s energy efficiency philosophy. With a mission to protect People, Planet and Production from the harmful effects of industrial processes, the Fume Eliminator 24/7 is yet another product which can site proudly within the Nederman product portfolio.
