Spire™ 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.

Powerful filtration with the smallest footprint in the industry.

If you’re using robotic welding cells, Spire may be the right system for you. We designed Spire™ especially for the most common types of welding applications for the automotive industry though it can be applied to many other industries as well. Spire is a flexible, cost-effective alternative to centralized ducted systems. Each Spire unit provides filtration for an individual large welding cell or several smaller weld cells. It’s a powerful system that can keep up with the heavy demands of robotic welding in a high-production factory.

Spire features:

  • Small footprint: Our floor-saving design takes up about the same amount of space as a wire barrel.
  • Built-in spark arrestance: Our propriety Delta3 spark arrestance system comes standard with every unit for superior fire safety.
  • Very low maintenance: Everything is easily accessible for easy filter changes and maintenance-no special tools required. And our proprietary eTell system makes maintenance headache-free.
  • Flexible: Since the Spire units have a very small footprint, it’s easy to find space for them. And whenever you need to change your floor configuration, Spire is easy to move right along with your welding cell.

Spire Configuration

Flexible, movable single collectors.

Our spire configuration uses smaller collectors, one for each welding cell, ducted to the hood over the cell. This system is very flexible, simple to install and maintain, and easy to move with the welding cell. The single filter design makes filter change out fast and easy. Includes built-in spark arrestance. For additional configurations, including the flexible, new RoboVent Grid configuration, click here.

How it Works

 eTell™ Intelligent Controls Each Spire unit comes standard with eTell, a revolutionary control system that learns your systems and routines, makes automatic adjustments to save energy and extend filter life, and alerts you when maintenance is needed.

AInternal Hopper Dust is collected in an easy-access internal hopper. Just hook a standard shop vac up to one of two 2″ ports to clean out excess dust.

BSafeSensor™ Particulate Monitoring SafeSensor is the Spire’s advanced particulate-monitoring device that can detect leaks past the filters. If one should occur, SafeSensor will shut the equipment down and trigger an alarm.

CDelta3™ SparkOut Our propriety Delta3 spark arrestance system comes standard with every unit for superior fire safety. Delta3 uses centrifugal force to eliminate sparks at the source.

DSupprex-200™ Fire Suppression System – Option This is a dual-stage system activated by smoke or heat. If smoke is detected, a fire damper closes, stopping all airflow and oxygen supply. If heat is detected, FM-200 gas is instantly deployed.

EeDrive™ Automatic VFD – Option The eDrive constantly monitors airflow, and automatically adjusts the motor RPM to compensate for filter loading. Energy peaks and valleys are evened out, and energy usage is cut by 20% to 30% while filter life is extended by as much as 30%.
