Mobile welding fume extractors

Lincoln Electric introduces Mobiflex 200-M and 400-MS mobile welding fume extractors with filtration.

Cleveland, February 21, 2011—Lincoln Electric has introduced the Mobiflex 200-M and 400-MS, low-vacuum systems designed for welding fume extraction and filtration. Both units are very useful for smaller manufacturing facilities that require light to medium duty fume extraction in various locations.

The Mobiflex 200-M and 400-MS provide a generous airflow of 735 cubic feet per minute (CFM) with either a Lincoln LFA 3.1 or LFA 4.1 extraction arm installed and operate at a low noise level of 69 dBA. Both fume extractors feature front casters and rear wheels for mobility.

Two types of main filter are available: cellulose or high efficiency cellulose/polyester. The cellulose/polyester type is for stainless steel or high alloy welding applications. Each unit’s internal spark arrestor also functions as a pre-filter for larger-sized particles.

The Mobiflex 200-M model has a filter status indicator, which gives users a visual guide to the remaining filter life. Filter maintenance in the Mobiflex 400-MS is simplified by a self-cleaning system. The cleaning system is activated automatically or can be manually started by a switch on the unit’s front control panel.
