PORTABLE WELDING FUME EXTRACTOR
Lincoln Electric’s X-Tractor® 1GC is a high vacuum extraction system designed for the removal and filtration of welding fume. The 1GC is a great choice for fume removal on the light duty welding applications typically found in shops or companies with a small number of welding stations. The compact size and light weight of the X-Tractor® 1GC make the unit easy to move to where it’s needed.
- Economical fume movement and ventilation option
- Easily disassemble the unit for cleaning and maintenance
- Maximum extraction distance up to 32 ft. (9.7 m)
- Quiet operation

WEIGHT AND DESIGN
The X-Tractor® 1GC is lightweight and portable at only 37 lbs. (17 kg) and can easily be carried anywhere. This unit is perfect for light duty, intermittent use such as maintenance and construction applications.
High vacuum welding fume extraction systems utilize higher pressure of 70-90” WG and low volume of 55-115 CFM with an air speed of 4000-5000 ft/min. The air handling configuration of high vacuum equipment allows the use of small diameter rigid duct and small diameter flex hose to easily reach extraction points. It is perfect for applications such as short welds when using fume suction nozzles or larger fixture welding using integrated fume extraction guns. This process is designed for close proximity source extraction from 2-4” to the welding source.
Since the hoses and suction nozzles are smaller than those of low vacuum systems, it is much easier to carry the extraction nozzle and/or flex hose into confined spaces (45 ft. maximum distance). The mobility of the hoses allows the main filter unit to be kept at a central location. Due to the low air volume (CFM) extracted make-up air and negative room air pressures are kept to a minimum when exhausting outside the facility.
The X-Tractor® 1GC has a unique internal manual cleaning system. Using a customer supplied compressed air source and manual rotation, the internal rotary air jet device supplies a burst of air from inside the filter cartridges. This in turn causes the particulate that has collected on the outside of the filter cartridge to drop into the bottom of the unit. The cover where the flex hose inlet is located is then removed and the particulate can be disposed of by following federal, state, and local environmental regulations.
At the bottom of the X-Tractor® 1GC unit is an automatic start/stop sensor. The unit automatically switches on as the welder begins to weld and automatically switches off approximately 15 seconds after the arc is extinguished. The result is less energy consumption and non-continuous noise. For the automatic start/stop function to work, the welding power source’s work cable or power cable must be laid in the sensor hook.
