Downdraft Tables Reduce Hazardous Workplace Contaminants

Fumes resulting from heavy industrial processes such as metal finishing, grinding, and welding make for an unhealthy and unsafe work environment.

Depending on the metal in process, airborne pollutants can cause ailments ranging from mild flu-like symptoms to lung cancer. To avoid these scenarios and maintain good indoor air quality, it is imperative to have fume extraction on the premises where these processes are taking place.

Downdraft tables pull fumes and dust away from a worker’s face and down through tabletop slots, with minimal space and engineering required. They are ideal as welding fume extractors, and work terrifically to remove airborne hazards created by many applications.

Due to infrastructural and spacing circumstances, it is not always possible for all workstations to have an extraction arm or hood allowing for source capture. In these cases, a downdraft table can be an ideal alternative.

Downdraft Tables Purposes Vary. Know Your Objective

While downdraft tables are generally plug-and-play, they’re not all designed for the same circumstances.

Installing a table that’s ideal as a welding fume extractor may not be the correct decision when you need it for grinding or deburring.

Downdraft tables come in a variety of sizes and styles to fit a range of industrial applications, with multiple cartridge options and other customizable options.
