Shipbuilding presents unique fume extraction challenges, compared to other industries.
First of all,allshipbuilding processes involve welding or metalworking operations, which generate very dangerous fumes for the workers.
Long-term exposure to weld fumes and particulates can leads to serious health consequences, from major respiratory problems to multiple types of cancer.
Another challenge of the shipbuilding industry is working in small and confined places, as well as on incredibly large surfaces. Thisrequiresthe need for a vast range of fume extraction solutions that will ensure the same high efficiency in very different conditions.
