CleanAirTower Redesigned

Clean working conditions for the entire production: With the comprehensive relaunch of the CleanAirTower, KEMPER is bringing its established general ventilation system to a higher level of protection. The extraction technology specialist has optimised the filter tower in terms of extraction capacity, plant safety, service life and design.

  • "Our CleanAirTower is the ideal addition to any air pollution control concept", emphasises Bj√∂rn Kemper, Chairman of the Board of Directors of KEMPER GmbH. “In this way, metalworking companies effectively ensure the protection of their employees in welding and cutting processes, especially those with a high or very high risk potential."

    Pinball method for greater plant safety

    Thanks to a completely redesigned internal construction, the extraction capacity increases by 10 percent compared to the previous model. The newly developed pinball method prevents sparks and coarse particles from penetrating the filter and damaging it. Because they collide with special sheet steel elements on the inside, their energy is automatically extracted. Thanks to the innovative air flow, the filter life is extended by 20 percent compared to the previous model.

In the new CleanAirTower, KEMPER has completely redesigned the head of the filter tower. Extraction openings are no longer located circumferentially on the side, but in the cover of the general ventilation system. A new tornado principle at the head of the filter tower ensures that the contaminated air is drawn in with a very high degree of efficiency. The optimisation also changes the design of the filter tower head. The element can be retrofitted in existing systems.

Indispensable for high risk potential

As part of a mix of measures for effective occupational safety, the CleanAirTower is the ideal supplement to source extraction. Especially for welding processes with high to very high potential risk, the general ventilation system helps to comply with limit values and ensure a high level of occupational safety. This means the CleanAirTower also ensures that employees at surrounding workplaces are effectively protected from welding fumes. It separates more than 99.9 percent of alveolar dust particles that could enter the bloodstream.

The general ventilation system from KEMPER operates according to the recommended principle of layer ventilation. Automatic dust removal means that operation is uninterrupted. Welders dispose of the hazardous substances completely free of contamination. The optimised internal construction also reduces the cleaning effort.

Since the general ventilation system feeds the cleaned and heated air back into the hall, companies can save up to 70 percent of their heating costs. Instead of a one-off investment, the CleanAirTower is also available as a leasing model at attractive monthly instalments. For the market launch, KEMPER is bringing out a #nextlevel edition: The first 150 CleanAirTowers are being delivered by the manufacturer completely in black.
