The so-called “VAC-Cubes”,with a pressure of 20,000 to 36,000 Pa, which can remove an air volume of 210 to 1,050 m³/h, represent the latest addition to the range of the manufacturer of extraction and filter units. With their enormous extraction power, the VAC-Cubes meet the latest international standards of modern torch welding extraction. Due to its high pressure, the VAC series is predestined for continuous use in the high-vacuum range and is primarily suitable for extraction of smoke from welding torches at welding workstations. In line with the new requirements on the European market, it combines maximum user safety, enormous extraction capacity and energy-saving operation.
Depending on the requirements and work area, the various models of the series can be used as a single workplace solution or as a multi-user solution for up to ten workstations in single-shift or multi-shift operation and are therefore suitable for use in small and medium-sized companies. The VAC models in their numerous variants are also convincing due to their high functionality: They can be assembled in a short time without great effort, are easy to operate, compact and can be combined with a large number of standard torch types.
And this is how the VAC-Cubes work: The polluted air is conducted directly from the source of emissions, i.e. the welding gun, to the filter unit. The extraction unit with a robust side channel blower is equipped with automatically cleanable PTFE membrane filter cartridges whose status is displayed by control elements in real time. Rotating nozzles ensure effective cleaning of the filters and long filter life. The separated particles are disposed of in an easily removable nylon bag.
The VAC series can be optionally equipped with a frequency converter for greater energy efficiency. The units that have a pressure sensor in the pipeline automatically compare the current vacuum value of the production line to the preset value in the software and control this via the frequency converter. When the vacuum drops, the rotation rate of the motor is increased by means of the frequency converter. In the opposite case, the rotation rate of the motor is reduced. This fully automatic system makes it possible to maintain a constant vacuum at all suction points and thus to significantly reduce energy consumption.
“Due to the high pressing, the easy operation and the variety of variants, the VAC series offers us the possibility to meet the increasing demand for a powerful extraction from welding torches, especially from France, Germany and the Netherlands”, Simon Telöken explains satisfied. After the innovation premiere and market launch at EuroBlech 2018 last autumn, the manufacturer is already pleased about the increasing sales.
