Tank and Table Options

Water and down draft tables, self-cleaning plasma tables

AKS offers multiple water and down draft plasma table options.

We will work with you to determine the best solution for your application, and provide a water or down draft plasma table that matches your specific requirements.

Tanks and Tables

Capturing fumes from plasma cutting tables is important for health, safety and compliance issues, and an
efficient way capture fumes is with a downdraft table with multiple zones.

Other applications call for a different approach, using a water table to capture and quench spent materials and smother smoking debris before it thickens the air.
