Farnborough College of Technology boasts one of the largest covered walkways in Europe, and also a number of Encon installations, including a vehicle exhaust system (as shown), welding fume extraction and air conditioning to a science laboratory.
As a result, five Lennox Air to Air Heat Pumps were installed on the roof of the church, with conditioned air being discharged into the auditorium via high level diffusers.
Welding Fume / Smoke Extraction
Encon offer a wide range of solutions for the removal of welding fume / smoke. Ideally, whenever possible welding fumes should be extracted at source. In instances where this is not possible, a range of units are available to provide a general clean up of the workshop atmosphere.
Encon recommend that welding fumes should be filtered allowing the filtered clean air to return back to the workshop premises without the necessity for external exhaust with the resultant loss of energy.
In cases where recycling is not required, exhaust to atmosphere systems are available. In the majority of cases we recommend electrostatic filters for the removal of the welding fumes from air streams. They have the advantage of being of permanent life design requiring periodic cleaning only, not replacement i.e. no on-going filter replacement costs. In some instances mechanical filters are recommended and are available for all models, in other instances a combination of electrostatic/mechanical is recommended.
