Fusion Push-Pull Configuration

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.

Clean up your plant while allowing for large parts and overhead cranes

RoboVent Push-Pull systems represent a total-plant solution that integrates a full complement of engineering, design and manufacturing capabilities available from RoboVent. When source capture isn't possible due to large parts or overhead cranes, the push-pull system can recirculate the air in the entire plant without conflicting with these obstructions.

Helping the Environment

The days when dirty air was simply exhausted into the atmosphere with little thought to the consequences are long gone. In fact, the EPA has mandated new rules regarding the dispersal of these potentially dangerous fumes and smoke. In response, RoboVent has developed two powerful, total-plant solutions that best enable you to satisfy government regulations and create a safer environment. Furthermore, these systems filter and recirculate clean air to avoid the costly energy bills associated with replacing the warm air that many systems exhaust from a building. Environmentally responsible and cost-effective — that's the RoboVent mandate.
