Anyone who operates in the welding industry knows how important good ventilation is. The very nature of welding results in polluted air filled with fumes, gases, and welding dust that can cause all kinds of health problems both long- and short-term.
Kemper America specializes in filtration units that meet every possible operational need in the welding industry, removing polluted air and replacing it with clean air that is safe to breathe. The company manufactures all kinds of units, from those that are relatively small and mobile and remove fumes from source to large central units that extract welding smoke and other pollutants from large workshops. The question is, what are your needs?
The Filter High Vac 130 fume extractor is a relatively small but highly efficient mobile filter unit that removes weld fumes, gases, dust, and other pollutants at source. It is currently on sale at a highly competitive price.
Features of the Filter 130
Small, highly mobile, and incredibly functional, Kemper’s Filter 130 high vacuum extraction unit operates with manual filter cleaning. It is ideal for welding workshops where there are low to medium levels of smoke and dust, and an excellent choice in environments that involve alternating workplace. It is a popular filtration machine for repair work and for torch extraction.
The Filter 130 is the lightest of all Kemper America’s high vacuum extraction machines which makes it perfect for mobile use in any situation.
Suitable for some continuous operations, it has a single connection port to accommodate one 305 mm-long (1 ft) hose that is fitted with a suction nozzle. The high vacuum flow volume system utilizes a high-efficiency KemTex ePTFE cartridge filter for surface filtration that covers an area of 1.49 m2, which is slightly more than the Dusty’s 1.35 m2 capacity. It collects all the airborne weld-fume particles at source, where the welder is breathing, and compressed air is used to remove all particles from the outside of the filter. There is a collection tray in the machine where the particles fall, making for easy manual disposal when the tray is full. A filter monitoring light alerts the user when the filter needs to be cleaned.
Selection Criteria for the Filter 130
The Filter 130 may be used for a number of applications to weld non-alloy and low-alloy metals, as well as aluminum. For instance, it may be used for:
- TIG, laser, and submerged arc welding of all these metals in all situations, when the emission rate is between 1-2 mg/sec, even when the work is continuous.
- Electric arc and MIG and MAG welding of the same metals in occasional, frequent, and regular applications where the emission rate is between 2 and 25 mg/sec.
- Flux-cored wire welding of these metals, but only occasionally, and where the emission rate is more than 25 mg/sec.
The Filter 130 weld fume collector is supplied fully assembled and it includes casters as well as a 6 meter-long input power cord. It is one of the company’s smallest fume extractor units, measuring 310 mm x 350 mm, which is fractionally bigger than the 300 mm x 300 mm Dusty, but the same 690 mm height. At 17 kg it is Kemper’s lightest unit, and its 68.5 dB(A) sound level make it exceptionally quiet.
Its motor power is 1.27 kW and it uses a 115 V / 50 Hz power supply with 11 A rated current.
