Praxair helps you reduce your employees’ exposure to harmful welding particulates. When paired with a fume extraction torch, the high-powered ProStar™ Tip Extraction Collector (TEC) delivers fume extraction at the tip of the welding torch. By capturing more particulate closer to the source and pulling the fumes through the gun, operator exposure to welding fume is greatly reduced.
The ProStar TEC delivers, on average, greater than 95% collection efficiency for in position welds in accordance to the AWS F1-2 standard. The E11 rated PTFE filter is washable, so a single filter can last years when properly maintained. A safety monitoring filter (SMF) is also available for all ProStar TECs. This after-filter prevents dust collected by the TEC from potentially reentering the workspace, should a main filter failure occur. This option is required by OSHA for certain types of hazardous dusts.
The three TEC units have, at their core, variable speed, brushless, DC multi-stage bypass blowers enabling users to easily dial in the right airflow. The blowers are rated at 100% duty cycle for an impressive 30,000 hours – they can be relied upon for a long service life.
This single-torch, standard-pressure unit with 100 CFM at 50 inches of static pressure is ideal for most welding processes and provides an ergonomic solution to fume reduction.
This single-torch, high-pressure unit with 100 CFM at 100 inches of static pressure is an effective solution for applications with a required hose length of greater than 20 feet.
This dual-torch, standard-pressure unit with 100 CFM at 50 inches of static pressure per torch is intended to support two welders. The dual blowers in a single enclosure make it an ergonomic and space-saving solution for protecting operators from welding fume exposure.
