Modular Robotic Extraction Hood Design Allows for Customization

The Industrial Maid Robotic Welding Exhaust Systems RH35 and RH60 use a three-stage filter configuration. A 2" baffle is used for spark arrestance (for fire safety issues), a 4" pleated pre-filter separates out the larger particles and a final multi-pocket high efficiency bag filter takes out all the smaller welding smoke & fume particulate. These welding ventilation hoods do not require expensive cartridge filters or compressed air. The filters can be serviced by disposal so no dust is handled from dump trays or drums. The welding exhaust hoods are designed to have a low air-to-cloth ratio (low air speed through the filters), which allows the filters to collect more weld smoke, dust and particulate, thus extending filter life.

The well-designed modular concept of the Industrial Maid RH35 and RH60 Series makes it possible for our engineers to customize the size of the welding exhaust hood in order to maximize the square feet of covered work area. The next step is to work with our customers to design the best positioning for the weld fume exhaust system. Our welding ventilation hoods can be mounted on a stand, suspended from above or moved in and out of the work area on a horizontal crane track system to allow room to bring in necessary equipment or materials.

When Welding Smoke is a Problem we have a Welding Ventilation Hood that is Just Right for the Job

In some welding situations, such as robotic applications where welding torches move throughout a large work cell, source capture is not practical – or even possible. Industrial Maid has developed a superior welding fume exhaust system that has been tested and proven to be an effective way to extract welding fumes near the actual process. Not only do our welding ventilation hoods reduce the amount of fumes, small particulates and fine dust, they also capture aerosols and mists in the workplace environment.

For example, one of our most popular welding exhaust hoods is the Model RH60x3-2. This is a dual stack unit made to fit over a 192" x 216" weld cell. Cabinets are fabricated from carbon steel and can be painted in custom colors. Features of this welding ventilation hood include a 5 horsepower belt drive blower with a cfm rating of 6,000 (cubic feet per minute). There are three stages of air filters (baffle filters, pleats, and 95% main bags) with easy access to provide simple maintenance and do not require compressed air. This unit also has a thermal cut-off temperature sensor that shuts down the system in case of fire.

Welding Ventilation Hoods

The engineering team at Industrial Maid had a “workhorse” in mind when they designed the RHV Series welding hood. It is a complete packaged welding smoke and fume hood for industrial air filtration. The units can be configured to cover areas from 4' X 4' to 16' X 16' or larger if needed. A three stage filter system includes the baffle filter, 4” pleated filter (Merv 8) and a 95% multi-pocket main bag filter (Merv 15). These filters will handle oily weld smoke and options are available to include a final HEPA filter for stainless steel or other applications requiring higher efficiency filtration.

The RHV welding exhaust hood series incorporates a low static pressure motor blower package, requires no compressed air and no handling of dust from trays or drums. The resulting efficiency translates into an economical solution for handling weld smoke and fumes; dollars saved as a direct result of controlling utility costs.

T-7500x2 7500 CFM

RH35x2 8000 CFM

An Upper Midwest manufacturer made the best choice with the RH 35 X 2 horizontal welding ventilation hood over their robotic welding cell. The client was thrilled with not having to pipe in compressed air, the quiet operation and the effectiveness of the Merv 15 multi-pocket bag filters on slightly oily welding smoke. This unique three stage system is simple to install, easy to service and will operate using much less electrical power than self-cleaning cartridge style collectors. No dust storage bins, dump trays or 55 gallon drums to mess with and more importantly, no annoying pulse cleaning noises. Industrial Maid has never had a timer board fail since we do not use them with this simple yet effective product design. Call our engineering staff to help you select the right solution for your robotic or automated welding cell.

T-4500x2 4500 CFM

RH36Vx2 4500 CFM

The RHV36 X 2 – vertical welding ventilation hood is working great for a Midwest manufacturer. This lightweight unit is chain hung above the Panasonic Perform ARC cell. The three stage filtration has a spark arresstance baffle filter, a MERV 8 pleat and a MERV 15 main bag filter. HEPA final filters are available for stainless steel welding processes. The RH36V is a simple design that functions on both dry and oily welding applications. Units available in 1,000 to 8,000 CFM with all sizes of footprint coverage – from 4' X 4' to 15' X 15'. Check out why Industrial Maid is leading the way in cost effective welding cell air filtration solutions.

S & C Electric
RH35x3 6000 CFM

The engineering staff at S & C Electric posed a typical but difficult question to our local distribution partner. How to handle the welding smoke and fumes above a very large robotic weld cell with an overhead crane for moving parts in and out. Frommelt Safety put their minds together with our engineering staff and S & C to give them a simple yet very effective solution. The RH 60 series horizontal hood travels automatically on a Gorbel crane system to the side of the cell the robotic arm is welding at. The other side of the robotic cell is then unloaded and reloaded with the overhead crane. These units have a final HEPA filter to help take out the hexavalent chromium in the stainless steel welding application. This type of solution has been used on various applications, with robotic and automated welding cells, to help end users filter the air and still safely move large parts into and out of welding cell work areas.

Industrial Maid Robotic Welding Ventilation Hoods When You Need Solutions

The customers featured in our case studies each had their own welding fume ventilation challenge. Sometimes we address space issues on each side of the spectrum – either the available space is very small and the customer needs to maximize efficiency in minimum space, or it is a large weld area with multiple weld cells in a wide open area of the plant. Often the challenge is the type of material being welded, which means paying close attention to the type of filter used.

No matter the challenge, Industrial Maid can design a solution from our full line of Robotic Welding Ventilation Hoods with air flow ranges of 1,000 CFM to 10,000 CFM. The unique systems have steel fabricated cabinets, easy access filter service doors and a three stage filter combination. The inlet filter is a washable baffle filter, the pre-filter is a Merv 8 pleated filter and the final filter is a multi-pocket Merv 15 filter bag. A final HEPA filter is available for stainless steel welding (to control hexavalent chromium). Our welding exhaust hoods have been tested and proven to handle both dry and oily welding applications. As an added benefit, all units are energy efficient, simple to service and offer a "low cost of ownership". No dust trays or dump bins are necessary and the units do not require any compressed air.

At Industrial Maid we understand the increasing demands to meet safety and environmental regulations. While the safety of your workforce is always top priority, we know from experience that it is possible to protect employees and still save time and money with a well-designed welding smoke and fume exhaust system that fits - that does the job right. Give us a call at 877-624-3247 to visit with an engineer about how to select an industrial air filtration system that addresses air quality, energy savings, ease of maintenance and cost of filter replacement - all in one.
