Tex Engineering

RAM Environmental are chosen to install a new welding fume extraction system.

We were approached by Tex Engineering to provide a welding fume extraction system to serve seven welding bays at their Ipswich factory.

Tex manufacture a multitude of products for the road laying industry as well as trailers, kiosks and gas burners. With such a diverse product range RAM Environmental had the task of designing and installing a system which met with their varied needs.

We specified a 11kw centrifugal fan protected with star delta control gear. Eight Oskar fume extraction arms were installed throughout the factory. The trailer manufacturing bay required a coverage of 7 meters to ensure welding fumes could be extracted at source effectively. To overcome this we installed a 3 meter extension boom along with a 4 meter fume extraction arm giving the required coverage. The remaining welding bays were furnished with a mixture of Oskars standing and hanging fume arms depending on the requirements.

Upon completion the system was commissioned and a report issued to provide TEX with all the necessary commissioning data.

Workers at TEX noticed a significant improvement in air quality in the factory and are pleased with quality and design of the system.
