ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the use of water rather than air in filtering cutting fumes. It notes that metal centers are looking for means in cutting down expenses. It mentions that one alternative for metal cutting operations is the use of a water table for workspace ventilation rather than a downdraft table. It states that water tables have fixed applications in plasma and oxyfuel thermal cutting. It adds that water tables cost less while downdraft tables are more versatile.
