Abstract This laboratory study, undertaken in industrial conditions, aimed to evaluate the efficiency of a recently designed ventilation and filtering device for the collection of welding pollutants at their point of emission. Description and diagram of the device which proved satisfatory for manual and semi-automatic arc welding. It may also be used in other working conditions where there is a risk of exposure to harmful and toxic vapours and aerosols.
