Western Air Ducts install extraction for ArcelorMittal

Western Air Ducts has installed a dust and fume extraction system to help ensure the efficient, safe functioning of the large plasma cutting machine at ArcelorMittal, Birkenhead.

In addition to generating dust and fumes, plasma cutting generates sparks - to avoid these reaching the air filters (which are themselves fire-retardant) Western Air Ducts installed its unique Flashback Box as part of the extraction system.

An in-line device to measure extraction flow rate, together with a system of dampers, which can be opened and closed to regulate the air-flow, was also incorporated – enabling ArcelorMittal to fine-tune the system for optimal efficiency.
