Solder Fume Extractors

IP Systems offers soldering fume extraction units designed for bench top applications in the electronics industry. 

Solder Fume Extractor

Everyone recognizes the need for effective fume filtration to protect their employees during the hand soldering process.  The carcinogens and fumes produced from the burn off of the various flux chemistries can create occupational asthma, skin conditions and congestion. 

With the move to lead free solders, this need has become even greater due to the higher content of flues used in solder wire.  When using solder wick and flux during BGA clean up, the volumes increase exponentially.

When working with solder pots or small table top waves, many customers my create enclosures and utilize fume extraction to keep those fumes completely contatined.  IP Systems can not only provide the fume extraction but we also can provide enclosures specifically designed with these applications in mind. 

Fume Extraction Systems

Whether it be fumes generated by just one or two operators, a large group, robotic soldering or solder pots, IP Systems has a fume extraction unit that can handle your application and protect your employees

Why You Need a Solder Fume Extraction System


The process of hand soldering produces fumes that can be hazardous to the worker. These fumes are created due to the combination of the high heat of the soldering iron and the flux used. Soldering irons create heat which expands the air, allowing for fumes to fill the surrounding space. The fumes come from the combination of the metal being soldered and the flux used.


Fumes contain both gaseous and particulate matter that could have serious health hazards to humans. Not only do they produce foul odors, but the heavy metals and chemical compounds present in the fumes can cause respiratory problems, organ damage, skin damage, and potentially cancer.


OSHA has permissible exposure limits (PELs) for heavy metals, chemicals, volatile organic compounds, and other types of harmful matter to make sure that all workers are kept safe. Meeting these PELs is much easier when you have a solder fume extractor installed for your workspaces.


Fume extraction removes the fumes from the air immediately around the workspace. The fumes are sucked up into the fume extractor, taken through the ducting, and filtered through a combination filter media. This combination filter uses both a HEPA filter and an activated carbon base to deal with both particulate and gaseous matter. Then, the cleaned air is recirculated back into the shop.
