The Economical Way to Keep Your Environment Clean, Safe and Comfortable

Removing and ventilating fumes produced by welding, brazing, soldering, laser cutting, plasma cutting and similar operations is a critical concern in today's safety-conscious work environment. Place-A-Vent is an economical, energy efficient fume extractor that removes smoke, fumes and heat at their source to help assure worker safety and comfort.

Unlike exhaust fans or fixed overhead hoods, Place-A-Vent goes right to the source to capture and remove virtually all process emissions. It employs a negative pressure system that exhausts all fumes quickly to the outside or into existing ductwork.

System Features:

1-Year Warranty

  • Easy to install - all mounting components included
  • Can be easily moved to a different location - an advantage over exhaust fans and fixed overhead hoods
  • Can be modified for multiple work stations
  • Larger volume fans and hazardous-duty motors available
  • Three standard styles of hood support arms available
