(HSE) Modified Swinnex Welding/Solder Fume Heads
Modified Swinnex Welding Fume collection heads. These are HSE’s preferred collection heads for determining ‘In Visor’ exposures to Welding Fume and for monitoring Solder Fume (Colophony) exposures.
The normal Swinnex heads have been modified with a precision engineered aluminium inlet nozzle/port. The accompanying headset holder has a flexible arm to permit poistioning in the breathing zone inside a visor without disrupting the operator or the process.
Costs below are per unit. Supplies are curently limited.
Recommend set pump sample collection flow at 0.75 – 1.0 l/min
