Clarion® CFX 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.


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.


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.


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.

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.

A Breakthrough in Oil Mist Collection Technology

The Robovent Clarion® Series is a revolutionary design in industrial air-cleaning equipment that efficiently separates solid particulate in oil and water in the most demanding manufacturing environments.

Traditional oil-mist collectors rely on dated technologies—such as centrifugal, pocket filters, individual cartridge or panel filters, electrostatic precipitators and others—with limited success. We believed there was a better way, so we investigated the entire process in order to redesign the way oil mist is collected.

The result is the RoboVent Clarion Series.

  • Superior Filter Technology
  • Exceptional Performance
  • Guaranteed Satisfaction


How It Works

AIntegrated Controls The CFX Source Capture Clarion unit can be very simply controlled by connecting to the dedicated terminal or interlock on the CNC machine. Upgrades to an independent motor starter and disconnect are available.

BSingle Packed-Bed Media Filter RoboVent’s packed-bed media filter design simplifies the filter change-out process, cutting maintenance costs. The filters come in three different depths and two different efficiency ratings. The Clarion packed-bed media filter range ensures that you will receive the right filter for your application.

CSnap-Lock Filter Clamp The Clarion double-rail clamping mechanism ensures an airtight seal for every filter. The gusseted support structure is welded to the 3/16-inch reinforced tube sheet and provides over 200 pounds of compression force on the gasket. With this system, filter change-outs are fast and easy, require no tools and can be performed from outside the filter cabinet.

DeDrive™ 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, cutting energy usage by approximately 40% and increasing filter life by as much as 30%.

Equipment Configurations

The Clarion Series can be configured to meet your specific need!

RoboVent’s Clarion CFX-1000 collectors are suited to single machining centers while the larger CFX units are modular and can be ducted to multiple systems or very large machining centers.

Oil Mist Collector: Clarion CFX-3000

CFX-4000 Source Capture Unit

The Clarion CFX-4000 is built for ducting to very large machining systems, or multiple systems. This unit is modular and can be expanded to fit any application.

Oil Mist Collector: Clarion CFX-2000

CFX-2000 Source Capture Unit

Ideal for medium to large machining centers, the CFX-2000 is the big brother to the CFX-1000, with the option for deeper filters. The CFX-2000 is typically used for large stand-alone machining applications.

Oil Mist Collector: Clarion CFX-1000

CFX-1000  Source Capture Unit

RoboVent’s Clarion CFX-1000 is perfect for small to medium machining stations. Built to sit right on top of the machining center, it is a simple and compact solution for capturing oil mist at the source.
