Our process begins with a review of your facility and your business, including key elements to your production and services, like temperature, power availability, location in your facility, type of contaminants, and overhead or floor space.

Fume and Smoke Collection Air Handling is
About More Than Safety

The benefits of proper handling of your facilities’ air quality and fume/contaminants goes far beyond the obvious safety advantages.

A Good Fume Extraction System Reduces Costs

Aside from the obvious financial benefits of increased productivity, a good fume extraction system will also help to extend the life of your equipment. A well designed and installed system will remove airborne contaminants before they have a chance to settle on surfaces or contribute to corrosion. In many cases, this can add years of service life to your investment.

Better Air Quality Means a Healthier Workforce

It's not just the machines in your facility that can benefit from cleaner air – your employees benefit as well. Inhalation of airborne contaminants can cause a wide range of health problems, from minor irritation to more serious respiratory conditions. By removing harmful fumes and smoke from the air, you can help to create a healthier work environment for your employees.

Fume Extraction Improves Efficiency and Increases Productivity

This is the most important and obvious benefit of dust collection, protecting your workers from health problems caused by inhaling particulates and reaching strict regional or national safety standards.

A Quality Smoke or Fume Extraction System Improves Risk

Not every business will benefit, but smoke and fume extraction systems done well can reduce liability insurance costs and lower administrative expenses by reducing risk for you, your employees, and your insurer.

The Right System for Your Business

No two businesses are exactly alike. When it comes to filtering smoke and fumes, there is no “one size fits all” solution. While “off the shelf” options can be a good consideration for small businesses and certain applications, most businesses we work with still need a deep understanding of the regulations that specify the right fume extraction system for their process.

Types of Smoke and Fume Collection Systems

Smoke, contaminant, and fume collection systems come in a variety of sizes, styles, and filtration capabilities depending on industry and type of fumes you need to remove.No matter what type of system you need, Lapp Millwrights can help you find the right solution for your business.

Active smoke and fume collection systems

Active smoke and fume collection systems use fans to draw contaminated air through a filter. The filtered air is then discharged into the atmosphere.

Passive smoke and fume collection systems

Passive smoke and fume collection systems do not use fans. Instead, they rely on the natural convection of air to draw contaminated air through a filter.

Downdraft smoke and fume tables

Downdraft smoke and fume tables are one type of system we offer. These are often used in welding and other metalworking applications where fumes need to be captured at the source. The contaminated air is drawn down through a filter and discharged into the atmosphere.

mist collectors

Another type of system we install and service are mist collectors. These remove contaminants from the air using a high-efficiency filter and are often used in machining and other metalworking applications where coolant might be required.

general fume extractors

We also offer general fume extractors, which are suitable for a variety of industries, including welding, chemical manufacturing, and food processing. These systems remove contaminants from the air using a high-efficiency filter and can be mounted on walls or ceilings.

Consider a Reliable and Affordable Spark Trap

Lapp Millwright's spark trap feature is a critical part of most collection systems. NFPA standards strongly recommend spark traps as a complete fire prevention system. Our spark traps are reliable and affordable and are offered with a clean-out door in the bottom. Spark traps, made from carbon or stainless steel, feature fully welded construction and easy installation with no moving parts. Every one of our proprietary spark traps comes with a one-year limited warranty.
