AC Rental

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.

Improve Productivity and Health with AC Rental

Productivity can suffer in summer months as temperatures rise and ventilation systems struggle to keep up. Heat exhaustion and other health problems become a risk in these conditions, as well. Fortunately, there is a solution to these problems that is easy on the budget.

RoboVent AC Renal Program

A Powerful Solution to a Short-Term Problem

AC rental service from RoboVent brings high-powered air conditioning to your door when needed and whisks it away when the season turns. Purchasing an AC system that is used only a couple of months a year makes little sense in many parts of the country. RoboVent’s rental service delivers the equipment, installs it, manages it and takes it away.

Many summertime practices have become common in manufacturing facilities that lack air conditioning—long breaks, extra drinks and even emergency health services made available just in case. These measures are not only costly, they threaten workers’ health. Providing AC for the summer months is the most cost-effective route to keeping your workers healthy, happy and hard-working.

Another Option:
Combining Dust Collection with Climate Control

If it’s time to upgrade your dust collection system, consider a new collector with integrated climate control. The ICE unit—Integrated Cooling Equipment—combines one of RoboVent’s industry-leading dust collectors with a powerful AC unit. This budget-friendly solution costs little more than a regular dust collector. The compact unit saves on space and maintenance, as well.
