This is not a good option if many welders are operating at the same time, as it only have 1 nozzle, but it can comfortably handle 2 that are side by side.
The main benefit of this welding ventilation system, is that it can be targeted to where the actual fumes are being created.
The benefit of this is that you can set it up near your welding bench ,and just kind of leave it there.
The nuclear option!
The MaxxAir is probably the best welding ventilation system for an industrial setting that you could get.
It is actually very affordable and you could use it in a home setting, but I think that it might be a bit overkill for that situation!
This is really good if you have a busy workshop with many different types of applications producing hazardous fumes.
Because this will be blowing the fumes out into the atmosphere rather than filtering it, you will need to make sure you get all the correct permissions to use it before you go ahead and purchase.
