  Capture welding fumes at the source.  Ruemelin fume exhausters capture and remove toxic welding fumes before they pass through the welder's breathing zone and contaminate the surrounding air.  And whether you use arc, MIG, TIG, spot, plasma or other methods, Ruemelin's "source capture" ventilation is a real cost saver because it exhausts smaller volumes of heated and air conditioned shop air than general ventilation or other systems.  This helps to keep your heating and cooling costs down.
  High-volume, full range exhausting.  A powerful fan draws fumes within the capture zone of the cone inlet hood into the exhauster hose, exhausting outdoors or into an air cleaning unit if desirable and/or permissible.  The 5-inch units exhaust 1,000 CFM, with static pressures ranging from 5 to 10 inches depending upon the duct work.  This is enough suction to hold a welder's helmet in the cone while leaving the vital shield gases undisturbed.
  Put it where the job is...it stays.  The non-conductive, non-sparking, fire-retardant fiberglass cone inlet hood quickly and easily adjusts to any welding zone -- and Ruemelin's unique counterbalance system holds it there.  No locking devices are needed.   Double, heavy-duty compression springs, mounted on a cast iron friction disc, steel support tubing and tension rods keep the cone inlet hood stable in all positions.
