Weller’s New Solder Fume Extraction System

Protecting health at the workplace: the ZeroSmog Shield Pro features a clever design that cleans up the air at every soldering station.

  • Innovative fume extraction system
  • Frees up space, creates a healthier work environment
  • Low noise levels and easy filter change

Electronics manufacturing. Workshops. R&D facilities. Weller’s latest solder fume extraction system protects the health of the workforce. Moreover, cleaner air makes breathing easier and helps workers focus.

Clever Design Frees up Space on the Workbench

The ZeroSmg Shield Pro comes in a compact design that enables the use at individual soldering stations. It features innovative technology that protects against harmful particles and gases created and released as a result of the soldering process. The newly developed product for improved solder fume extraction also frees up space because its compactness means it can be stacked with all common soldering stations sized 130 x 180 mm.

Efficient Filtration of Solder Particles and Gases

Facing towards the worktop and operating at very low noise levels, the new system extracts solder fumes by generating a seamlessly adjustable air flow channelled through a cleverly designed duct. It cleans up the air using an EPA E10 filter that also contains activated carbon, thus, improving the air quality at the workplace. The ZeroSmog Shield Pro uses a filter status indicator that turns from green to red, to tell you whether it’s time to change the filter. When it comes to the change itself, the product has been designed to make this a simple and straightforward procedure.

ESD-safe Antistatic Housing

If you use a Weller soldering station, there’s another advantage: Weller stations can be directly connected to the fume extraction system. Means you can make the most of the Stop & Go function that automatically starts the filtration when you are using the iron, and turns the system off when you are done. In addition, for everyone who uses the ZeroSmog Shield Pro in a professional capacity, it goes without saying that the product complies with the highest industry standards. The ZeroSmog Shield Pro features an antistatic housing which makes the it ESD-safe and, hence, suitable for use in EPA workplaces.
