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.

We're More Than Suppliers

At the heart of RoboVent are its engineers. We have decades of experience designing and overseeing the fabrication of air-filtration and ventilation systems for a variety of industries and applications. By delivering turnkey environmental systems that collect, clean and recycle contaminated air, RoboVent has become a vital partner to large and small manufacturers alike. Our process expertise results in some of the most cost-effective and robust systems at work today. RoboVent's leading-edge technologies ensure that these systems are best in class. We have designed, installed and maintained systems for customers in automotive manufacturing, metal fabrication, heavy machinery and many other industries.

We are engineering professionals who understand the manufacturing environment, process systems and health and safety issues. Furthermore, we know the importance of delivering products and systems that satisfy the requirements of all those critical factors.

Our method has been honed over decades of work and learning. We work in close partnership with customers. Conversation and collaboration give us an understanding of the process, application, budgets and schedules. Next, our project team develops a specifically engineered solution. The RoboVent team works closely with customers throughout and is on hand throughout installation and start-up.

Taking Full Responsibility

At RoboVent, we embrace our roll as designer and manufacturer and take total project responsibility for the system we deliver. Our dedicated project team manages each step of the design-build project from concept through delivery. Our value as a supplier-partner is best demonstrated through the successful delivery of hundreds of systems, many with demanding, fast-track schedules.

Quality construction and innovative technology are, of course, essential to what we do. But at RoboVent we think personalized service is just as important as the product. It is what sets us apart. We work closely with our customers and, once the project is delivered, we offer the best warranty in the industry.
