Hello, Can you recommend the most efficient method of smoke extraction for my electronics workshop? Thanks
Hello, Can you recommend the most efficient method of smoke extraction for my electronics workshop?
What are you burning that makes smoke? If your soldering iron is too hot then it incinerates the rosin in the solder making smoke. My soldering iron has temperature control and is always at the correct temperature. Then I have no smoke, just a pleasant aroma of hot rosin.
An efficient method of smoke extraction would be to open two windows on a windy day.
To remove the smoke, you must remove the air which is the vehicle for the smoke. So it makes sense if you can remove it at the source, before it gets mixed with a large volume of air.
A suction system similar to a kitchen chimney is suitable. It should remove the smoke before it gets mixed with the rest of the air.
Or you can keep the open mouth of the vacuum cleaner close the soldering station you are using. An ion generator can also be of help (it works like electrostatic precipitators).
Your electronic workshop appears very clean- nobody appears to be working there. Lots of tools neatly hung on the wall. You need some people who work.
