Oil Mist Ambient Systems

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.

Ambient Capture Solutions

Made especially for oil mist applications, the Clarion® Vortex System is an ambient capture solution that address the oil mist challenge across your entire facility. Based on a proprietary design that creates a circulating airflow to effectively capture and filter oily particles across a facility, this system is especially suited to the capture of dirty air in the most challenging of places.

This ambient capture solution delivers many benefits other collectors don't. The system does not interfere with overhead cranes or other obstructions that cause trouble for ventilation systems. No ductwork is required, which lowers installation costs and improves sight lines throughout your facility. The system also reduces noise levels by decreasing static pressure. The air nozzles mounted atop the Clarion® units are adjusted to create the airflow patterns that work best in your facility. The integrated silencer ensures that your collector runs at a reasonable sound level.
