The difference between exhaust fan and industrial fume extractor
Every one of us is familiar with an ordinary exhaust fan that is mostly used in our homes. When any contaminant, smoke, or dust enter the air in our homes, we turn on our exhaust fans, and they are immediately removed from the air. Normally exhaust fans are used in kitchens and bathrooms. But the other type of exhaust fan is an industrial fume extractor. Even though the purpose of both the fans are the same, but their mechanism and machinery are different. Industrial fume extractors also have a high capacity. The other difference is the location of operation, i.e., exhaust fans are placed near windows, and industrial fume extractors are placed near exhaust hoods.
How does industrial fume extractor work?
Now I will tell you about the exact work of an industrial fume extractor. The fan of an industrial fume extractor uses a negative draft to pull fumes or dust particles to a contained filtration system. In this way, the contaminated particles are removed from the air. It is purified to provide a safe environment for the workers.
The suction head of the extraction unit is pointed few feet from the fume. The negative draft of the industrial fume extractor pulls the fume and removes it. The fume is collected in a tray which should be emptied at regular intervals.
Which industries can industrial fume extractor be used in?
Industrial fume extractors are very versatile in applications, and they are used in industries and factories that produce highly toxic gases and dust. The following list contains some of the industries in which industrial fume extractors are used:
- Pharmaceutical industries
- Food processing industries
- Tobacco industries
- Machinery industries
- Chemical industries
- Photoelectric industries
Electronic appliances industries
