Welcome to Extractability

Extractability is the largest independent UK stockholder specialising in the supply and manufacture of independently tested and CE approved fume, dust and particle extraction solutions and services for the workplace


Extraction Arms

Extraction Fans

Fixed & Mobile Filters

Vacuum Systems

Flexible Hoses

Downdraft Benches

Extractability, a division of Weldability-Sif, is a UK based “one stop source” for all welding fume, particle and dust extraction solutions, whether within the workshop, laboratory or education facility. All our products combine care for the environment and for employee health by improving work efficiency and production economy.


As a provider of approved DGUV/IFA (Institute of Occupational Health Standards) fume control solutions, Extractability are committed to playing a vital role for sustainable and efficient industrial production and offer solutions that contribute to creating safe and clean environments in the workplace. We cover everything from the design stage through to installation, commissioning and servicing and our broad product range includes both fixed and mobile vacuum filtration systems, dust extractors, extraction fans, air filters, flexible hoses, extraction arms and downdraft benches, all servicing the requirements of both the mobile welder or large fabrication workshop.


In addition to our specialist fume, particle and dust control and safety equipment, we also offer full professional health and safety and environmental services, such as air-quality monitoring, sound tests / noise assessment and LEV Testing, along with advice and guidance to help you.


Fume and dust exposure from industrial applications is a serious health risk and it is extremely important for this to be captured at source and to maintain consistent, accurate extraction performance of the machine(s). All LEV (Localised Exhaust Ventilation) systems need commissioning, to make sure they continue to perform well and protect employees. Thorough Examination & Testing (TeXT) is a statutory requirement under articles 9 (2) of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 and Extractability offer services which include dedicated visits to site to inspect, test and train and provide a full report of the equipment, ensuring the operation is constructed to the specified standards.


Our website details the full range of extraction solutions and services we provide for dust, fume and vapours and we hope it also operates as an inspiring guide to improving workplaces and reducing environmental impact.


Thank you for your interest. We look forward to receiving your enquires soon.

Extraction Arms

Extraction arms are highly flexible, and simple to position, extend and retract. Different attachments are available for wall, ceiling or extension bracket mounting as well as a number of accessories, including hoods and dampers to improve efficiency.

Extraction Fans

Every dust, fume or vapour collection system needs a fan to move the contaminated air through the filter for cleaning. Extractability has a complete range of extraction fans to cover the demands of almost any application.

Fixed & Mobile Filters

Mobile fume extractors provide increased flexibility, making extraction at various workplaces and locations possible. Fixed filtration units for fumes, dust and vapours can save valuable work space and can be stored inside or outside a factory/ workshop.

Vacuum systems

A robust range of industrial vacuums that can be utilised for simple cleaning applications through to the extraction of fumes from welding torches. They are extremely useful as a multi purpose vacuum for the cleaning of building sites.

Flexible Hoses

Flexible Hoses for a wide range of industrial applications including extraction of dust, vapour bulk materials and welding fumes. Extractability offers a complete range of extraction hoses that can be customised to fit your needs.

Downdraft Benches

Fume extraction downdraft benches are highly effective at removing hazardous fumes and dusts generated by welding, grinding, polishing and other applications. Extractability has a range of self contained downdraft filter benches,


The ProtectoXtract Mobile Welding Fume Extraction unit with filtration has been approved by the DGUV/IFA (Institute of Occupational Health Standards). This approved mobile extraction system provides filtration of metal particulate fumes, dusts and gases and can be used where Welding and Grinding applications take place.

Air Quality Monitoring

LEV Testing (TExT)

Noise Assessment

A thorough examination and test of equipment including hoods, filters and ducts, measurement of the technical performance using appropriate equipment and assessment of the effectiveness of the LEV system. All work is carried out according to HSE guidance which governs LEV testing.

We offer monitoring and/or sampling of employee's exposure and background levels of hazardous dusts, vapours and fumes against health and safety executives (HSE) Workplace exposure limits and in compliance with Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH)

We carry out noise exposure monitoring and noise level surveys of full sites, noisy areas, processes and equipment, identifying the daily noise exposure of all your employees who might be at risk of hearing damage. We can provide information to help you decide how to control noise exposure.
