Optimize Your Designs for Fume Extraction

Evaluate, validate, and optimize designs iteratively and easily in a cloud-based platform

A fume extraction system is used for a range of industrial applications, and works by using a fan to pull fumes and loose particles into a filtration system that removes toxicities from the air. Similar to smoke extraction systems, they work to keep occupants of a space safe during activities that could present danger.

Typical Scenarios Where Fume Extraction Is Employed

Fume extraction can be employed in a variety of ways, including but not limited to:

  • Welding processes
  • Sanding processes
  • Grinding processes
  • Spraying processes
  • Powder filling processes
  • Chemical applications

Why Is Online Simulation with SimScale Needed for This Application?

Fume and smoke extraction systems are crucial to the safety of occupants within a space. Therefore, it is extremely important to test and evaluate the system for its performance before prototyping or implementing it. This analysis can be done early in the design process with the assistance of online simulation.

However, the high cost of hardware and steep learning curves of traditional, on-premises tools leave many designers to feel that simulation is not an option. SimScale has eliminated such traditional hurdles, thanks to the power of the cloud. With SimScale, engineers can:

  • Run multiple simulations in parallel for faster design optimization
  • Get started quickly with an easy-to-learn interface
  • Avoid manual updates, installation, or maintenance
  • Simulate other CFD, FEA, or thermal applications
