At Source Weld Fume Extraction ON the Weld Gun
Reduce your welder’s exposure to welding fumes by up to 95%.
Regulatory agencies are continually moving towards more stringent thresholds for weld fume exposures. It is your corporation’s responsibility to meet these levels of compliance and keep your workers safe. More information about acceptable weld smoke levels can be found here. To reach this level of safe welding operation, companies adopt various measures including room ventilation, mobile extraction hoods, or personal protective equipment such as dust masks or ventilated helmets.
The RoboVent Extractor consists of a welding gun with built-in fume extraction. The gun can be connected to a central extraction system or to a stand-alone version. One advantage of the RoboVent Extractor gun integrated with a RoboVent hi-vac collection system is that it can be used in tight workplaces, such as in tanks or containers, as well as in shops.
The Robovent Extractor is no heavier or bulkier than conventional welding equipment.
How it Works
The RoboVent Extractor is intended for use in MIG and GMAW welding processes that employ shielding gases. The gun will deliver an improved performance in comparison to current guns with source suction.
Faster Gas Flow Due to the design of the gas nozzle at the inside, the shielding gas comes out faster than normal. The combination of the faster gas flow with the correct extraction flow at the gas nozzle gives a perfect weld in all positions.
Integrated Fume Extraction The RoboVent Extractor is a welding gun with integrated fume extraction. The gun can be connected to a central extraction system or to a stand-alone mobile extraction unit without any problems. The advantage of a mobile extraction unit with an integrated filtration system is that it can be used in different workplaces.
Flexible and Maneuverable A ball-and-socket joint between the gun handle and the hose offers flexibility and maneuverability. The RoboVent Extractor is a very light gun and weighs only 2.86 lbs(1.3kg). Due to the small size of the handle, the welder does not feel any difference between the Robovent Extractor and a standard welding gun.
