OctoVac / Ventilation equipment

OctoVac
OctoVac

OctoVac is a small and mobile professional tool that extracts and filters smoke while welding in a temporary environment. It also gives feedback on bad air quality. It is primarily designed for plumbers who are often moving around between different workplaces and often have to carry many tools with them. The products that are used today are very heavy and very impractical to move around and therefore not used on a temporary job. If ventilation equipment is not used properly, welding and soldering can over time cause several health problems, such as lung cancer, infertility (men), respiratory problems and effects on the nervous system.
