Plymovent develops FumeSimulator design-simulation program

Plymovent, Cranbury, N.J., has developed the FumeSimulator to visualize the background concentration of welding fumes in production facilities.

This FumeSimulator design/simulation program confirms the effective operation of the general ventilation and filtration systems of Plymovent controlling welding fumes.
Purchasing high-quality general ventilation and filtration systems, such as the Push-Pull and Diluter system of Plymovent, is a long-term investment. Therefore, it is important for Plymovent that the user stands behind the chosen solution for 100%. The FumeSimulator calculates and visualizes the concentration of welding fumes of a customized system solution. The simulation shows whether the welding fumes, in the concerning system solution, stay within the desired (legal) limits. Hereby the FumeSimulator offers certainty regarding the effectiveness of this investment.

The reliability of the simulation is related to the input of the customer. The customer must, for an accurate simulation, indicate which welding activities take place, how many welders and/or welding machines are present, how many hours per day welding is performed, etc. The Project Engineering team of Plymovent verifies that data. The data, together with the chosen system solution, are the input for the FumeSimulator.
For the simulation, the FumeSimulator uses CFD technology (computational fluid dynamics). The FumeSimulator generates a report visualizing the concentration of welding fumes in the production facility. The user recognizes his production facility and the chosen system solution and sees his specified input back in the report.
In an industry where complying with regulations is mandatory, a tool such as the FumeSimulator is beneficial when addressing the issue of welding fume in a production facility.
