Robotic 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.

Robotic Welding Solutions

Robotic welding is used in countless modern manufacturing environments and is therefore much discussed when it comes to weld fumes. Robotic welding produces vastly more weld fumes than manual welding because the arc is operational so much longer. While there are fewer humans in the vicinity who could breath the dangerous weld fumes, it is still extremely necessary to clean the air.

The toxic nature of weld fumes is a special danger in areas performing robotic welding because the stations do such a vast amount of welding during a shift. Dangerous substances such as hexavalent chromium can accumulate in the air if weld fumes are not collected and filtered.

RoboVent specializes in addressing concerns surrounding robotic welding. Different options are available for containing, extracting and filtering weld fumes. RoboVent collectors are highly efficient in collecting fumes and are designed to provide workers and facilities the highest levels of protection possible.

Configurations

Grid Configuration

A modular, flexible and future-proof solution. When you want the efficiency and energy savings of a centralized ducted system, but with flexibility to move components if needed, consider RoboVent's Grid Configuration.
