FlexPro™ Hi-Vac Series

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.

Hi-Vac Filtration Systems for Manual and Robotic Welding Applications

The RoboVent FlexPro™ Hi-Vac smoke-collection system is a versatile, simple and powerful solution for welding smoke extraction. Suitable for both manual and robotic welding applications, FlexPro is designed to eliminate the need for backdraft hoods and large ductwork.

The FlexPro Hi-Vac air filtration system collects fumes right at the source. It’s the perfect companion to the RoboVent Extractor. It can also be used with suction tubes mounted to your fixture or welding table—or, in the case of large metal structures or vessels, directly to the weldment itself.

FlexPro is designed for plug-and-work use: simply attach your hi-vac suction tube, connect to a power source and start collecting weld fumes.

Manual Welding Hi-Vac Applications:

  • Ship building and repairs
  • Tank building and repairs
  • Large pipe welding
  • Large weldments
  • Applications that require extensive crane use
  • Stainless steel welding
  • Any application where a welder is overexposed to harmful welding fumes

Robotic Welding Applications:

  • Many robotic welding applications
  • Applications requiring extensive overhead crane use
  • Large cells with multiple robots
  • Assembly lines

RoboVent Extractor: Weld Gun Source capture

The RoboVent Extractor™

Safe extraction of welding fumes at the source

The RoboVent Extractor consists of a welding gun with a built-in extraction module. The gun can be connected to a central extraction system or to a stand-alone version without any problems. One advantage of the RoboVent Extractor gun integrated with a RoboVent FlexPro Hi-Vac collection system is that it can be used in different workplaces, such as in ships’ holds or tanks.
