Vortex™ 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.

Facility-wide Ambient Air Filtration

The RoboVent Vortex™ Series collector is based on a proprietary design that creates a circulating airflow to effectively capture and filter particulates in a plant. Cleaner air is then reintroduced to the plant in a seamless process. The system utilizes a unique mechanism consisting of eight to 12 nozzles that can be adjusted directionally to maximize the efficiency at which the air is cleaned.

Why the Vortex Series Is an Excellent Choice

There are many benefits to installing a Vortex System in your facility:

  • It does not interfere with overhead cranes or other obstructions that cause trouble for other ventilation systems.
  • No ductwork is required, which lowers installation cost and improves sight lines and visual appeal.
  • It reduces collector noise levels by decreasing static pressure.

Vortex-6CollectorD

Vortex Configuration

The system is engineered to create a plant-wide environmental vortex that turns the air at a consistent and steady rate. It is especially effective in cases where source capture of smoke or dust isn’t possible due to large or unusual manufacturing operations, or when there are overhead cranes and limited ceiling space. The design of our Vortex system is especially suited to the capture of dirty air in the most challenging places.

RoboVentAirQuality_TimeLapse_Diagram

Progressive Measurements That Were Recorded In The Facility During Production.

The chart shows the change in air quality over a 20-minute period while the RoboVent system was running during production. When production was not running, the air quality entered the “clean-air zone” in less than eight minutes.

Ambient Air Testing Results

Normal Operation With Ventilation System 20 Minutes After System Was Turned On.

RoboVentAirQuality_TimeLapse_Before

These RoboVent systems were turned off for 20 minutes during normal operation. The air measured 2.1 mg/m3.

RoboVentAirQuality_TimeLapse_After

Normal operation with a RoboVent system after 20 minutes. The air measured .05 mg/m3 while production was running.

Your facility is unique. To get the best results, your whole-plant ventilation system needs to be personalized to your individual environment. That requires a thorough understanding of your facility layout, fume-generating applications, airflow patterns and physical constraints.

VentMapping is a systematic engineering and design service that uses a holistic approach to optimize your air quality system. Our comprehensive approach helps us find the safest, most effective and most efficient way to meet your goals.

Standard Features

eTell™ Intelligent Controls

A revolutionary system that learns your routines and makes automatic adjustments to save energy and extend filter life. It even alerts you when maintenance is needed.

SafeSensor™ Particulate Monitoring

An advanced particulate-monitoring device capable of detecting leaks past the filters. If one should occur, SafeSensor shuts the system down and triggers an alarm.

Dynamic Pulse™ System

This patented system for filter cleaning includes multiple valves and computer-synchronized blasts of compressed air to shed dust and send it into the collection area.

Endurex RMO Cartridge Filters, Dust & Fume Air Filters

Endurex RMO Cartridge Filters

RoboVent's premium filter engineered to provide the best filtration protection for your plant and employees. A widened pleat and proprietary filter media help deliver top performance.

Containment Options

RoboVent has multiple solutions available for the final resting place of your dust. Whether your loading application is heavy, medium or light, RoboVent has you covered.

Vertical Filter Design

RoboVent's vertical filters are designed to shed dust into the containment system far more efficiently than horizontal filters. This design significantly increases filter life.
