The process of welding produces hazardous chemicals such as manganese and hexavalent chromium. These chemicals produced by welding exhaust fumes are known to cause severe instances of brain damage and lung cancer. Because of these detrimental effects, it is essential to have a weld fume ventilation system installed to protect the health and safety of welders and those who are working in welding environments. At Ducting.com, we offer a large selection of welding duct products that are designed to withstand the harsh chemicals and temperature requirements that are associated with welding applications.
Welding is a high temperature application and because of this weld fume ventilation requires hoses that are resistant to the high temperature fumes given off by the welding process. Our welding duct products offer a wide range of high temperature resistance with flexible duct hose that can withstand maximums of 160 degrees Fahrenheit and all the way up to 1650 degrees Fahrenheit with many more options available in between. This wide range of heat resistant welding hoses allows you to select the proper hose for your application’s temperature and budget demands.
Another important factor to take into account when welding are the dangers of sparks that can be created in the welding process. Sparks are an extreme fire hazard and it is important that your weld fume ventilation system is designed with the dangers of sparks in mind if your welding application frequently produces them. To protect your ducting from the dangers of sparks, several of our welding exhaust products are constructed with materials that are listed as UL 94 V-0 flame retardant. This means that these welding hoses are resistant to catching fire when any of the stray sparks produced by welding touch the surface of the hose.
We offer PVC and stainless hoses that are perfect for heavy-duty welding applications that will produce large amounts of high temperature fumes. Not only is our welding exhaust hose products one our most durable flexible duct hose, it also features a self-supporting system. This allows you to place the exhaust hose conveniently to the source of the exhaust fumes with the flexible duct hose body remaining in place on its own. These are self-supporting, semi rigid flex hoses that are available in a wide range of ID sizes.
