Spire Configuration

Clean Air Matrix

RoboVent engineers are experts in every category of air filtration and ventilation. The four categories below represent the major options for treating your contaminated air. RoboVent has designed solutions for each of these categories and has manufactured air filtration systems of unrivaled quality.

For more information about these categories, see Indoor Air Quality 101.

Ambient_Filtration

Large blowers and air filtration equipment draw contaminated air from the plant (typically at the ceiling level), filter it and return it to the plant. This is a proven solution in plants welding large parts with overhead cranes. It reduces the haze in the air, resulting in a cleaner working environment, with no negative pressure or heat loss.

SourceCapture_Filtration

Air in the immediate area of the welding activity is captured in a hood system, then filtered and returned to the plant. This is the best solution whenever possible. It allows for a more flexible system and removes the smoke directly from the operator's breathing zone. There are many types of source capture, including overhead hoods, crossflow hoods, fume arms and fume guns, some of which work better than others.

Ambient_Exhaust

Large exhaust fans draw contaminated air from the plant and exhaust it directly into the environment, typically through the roof or walls. This is a traditional method and often results in negative air pressure. Also, it is very difficult to climate-control your plant and the system may not work well in the winter.

SourceCapture_Exhaust
Air in the immediate area of the welding activity is captured in a hood, sent through ductwork, and exhausted directly into the environment. This is a lower capital cost alternative to filtration, but tends to result in high operating costs and large, unsightly ducting systems that work less efficiently with modifications. It also results in negative pressure problems.

Flexible and Powerful

When your welding operation grows in size, the Spire Configuration grows with you. This configuration uses our popular and smallest-footprint collector, the Spire, and combines multiple units into a powerful and flexible array.

Each Spire unit is ducted to a single welding cell. A Spire Configuration is flexible, simple to install and easy to maintain. When you need to move a welding cell and change your layout, the configuration changes shape accordingly. Whether you're adding units, removing them or just moving them around, the Spire Configuration provides the flexibility you need.

The Spire's single-filter design makes filter change-outs fast and easy. No special tools are required. Plus, the eTell™ Intelligent Controls system monitors your collectors and makes maintenance headache-free.
