    Ventilation Question

    Hi everyone, new guy here.
    Great forum, very informative.


    I have a large blower going out the window with 6"round steel ducting running overhead that works well for overhead fumes, but then i learned argon is heavier than air so i am thinking i should run the ducting to ground level also.

    Any opinions?

    Forums are sweet, Like brainstorming with 1000 people!

    Best setup would be to have a 4" or 6" hose that you can put close to the source of fumes. That way they are collected before you have a chance of collecting them in your lungs.

    Argon shouldn't be a problem unless you are working in a confined space or in a low area that would allow it to collect in the same place you have your nose stuck in.

    If in a confined space follow the proper procedures and you will be alright.

    Ventalation should be below the welders nose according to the aws so the welder doesnt have a chance of breathing the fumes it wouldnt hurt to run another vent down low.
