Why are fume extractors needed in electronic workshops?
Fume extraction in the electronics industry is vital for a number of reasons. In order to protect sensitive electronic components, work must be completed in a certain environment, which requires reduced humidity and as little dust as possible. While this closed environment is good for the electronic components, it’s not so good for the manual technicians.
Working with chemical fumes
Fume extractors are important here because they remove the chemical fumes and vapours that build up during the manufacturing process. Cleaning agents, solvents and resins are all regularly used in the electronics industry. These fumes are often harmless in small amounts but can cause health issues over the long term.
