Redesigned Weld-Fume Extraction System

December 27, 2019

RoboVent has redesigned one of its most popular weld-fume extraction systems, the Spire, from the inside-out, according to company officials.

Each Spire unit provides filtration for as many as two robotic-welding cells for effective source-capture filtration, or can be converted to an ambient unit for area-wide filtration when a hooded enclosure is not possible.

“We’ve retained the name of the unit and the 3 by 3-ft. footprint,” explains Rick Kreczmer, RoboVent president. “However, we completely reengineered the Spire for better pulsing, longer-lasting filters and easy maintenance features our customers requested. We made substantial improvements to make filter changes and dust disposal easy and upgraded our touchscreen controls to a 7-in. screen.” 

The new Spire ships standard with a 7-in. full-color HMI touchscreen; variable-speed drive designed to save energy and extend filter life; the compact footprint; moveable control panel; and upgraded dust containment. RoboVent PleatLock filters reportedly provide longer filter life and easier changeouts, and improved filter pulsing minimizes filter-pressure buildup.
