Resistance Welding

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.

Resistance Welding Solutions

Resistance welding, including the common methods of spot and seam welding, is a widely used process in manufacturing. This form of welding relies on the heat generated from electrical resistance between two electrodes. As with all forms of welding, this process generates weld fumes that contain fine particulates of metals, many of which are toxic. Careful collection and filtration of these weld fumes are important for both worker safety and regulatory compliance.

RoboVent has a solution for any resistance welding situation. Using custom hoods and powerful venting, our systems draw weld fumes and smoke through our proprietary filter banks and return safe, clean air to your plant.

Configurations

Traditional Configuration

The traditional configuration maximizes performance with ductwork sized for optimal airflow for your specific applications.

Fusion Push-Pull Configuration

Push-pull systems represent a total-plant solution for applications where source capture isn't possible due to large custom parts and overhead cranes.

Fusion Vortex Configuration

The Fusion Vortex places powerful dust collectors in an array that creates facility-wide air circulation.
