A plasma table produces far more dust than a welding station. The cutting table removes base metal, and the dust collector captures that material, whereas a welding station produces mostly fumes. These fine particulates don’t require the same amount of airflow or filter media as a dust collector attached to a plasma table.
A good comparison is seen in the two dust collectors:
- The RoboVent Plaser Series is specifically designed to work with laser and plasma cutting tables. These collectors provide powerful filtration that can handle large volumes of dust.
- The RoboVent Spire Series is designed to work with a single large welding cell or several smaller welding cells. The system is powerful and can handle a large amount of weld fumes, but it would not be the best choice for a plasma cutting table.
