The Problem: Rising Costs of Weld Fume Collection
The Local 495 training program hosts several classes per day in order to teach students the fundamentals of the welding process. There are 20 weld booths where students can master their craft. The ongoing welding requires a fume collection system to facilitate a safe training environment.
With their previous system, training took place with little thought or interruption. However, the Training Department began to notice that the system they had in place, while working properly, was beginning to become very expensive to maintain. Local 495 had a setup of one capture system per two weld booths. This was leading to costly filter replacement expenditures.
The Local 495 Training Department knew that they needed to make a decision. It just so happened that their gas and consumable supplier, Airgas, is one of RoboVent's leading partners. The reps at Airgas suggested that Mr. Young place a call to one of the Solutions Directors at RoboVent.
