During Welding operation, the fumes and metallic gases are emitted from the work piece, which cause the pollution and hazard to workers, when gases were inhaled or ingested. This usually cause respiratory effects such as lung disease, bronchitis and possible of lung cancer. This paper deals with the designing of fume extraction system and evaluate the performance such as efficiency of the system, filtration capacity, and environmental friendly, during the welding process. Primarily, the purpose of the analysis of the welding fume extractor is to ensure that the system installed meet the minimum ventilation requirement of building regulation and the challenges pose by welding fumes to welders in the workshop. Investigation shows that extractor fan is characterized by high pressure, medium flow and continuous power increase, very suitable for handling dust-laden, moist air/gases and heavy contaminated airstreams. The machine is safe and easy to operate and does not require any technical training. Welding fume is hazardous to welding shop occupants therefore; there is the need to remove it so that health hazard will be reduced. Performance analysis shows that the flow rate is 0.5940 m3/s, and the density of air is 1.225kg/s.
