Top 10 Reasons to use the WeldStation™ in your Training Lab
With welding machines giving off welding smoke and grinding dust, it is critical to properly ventilate the air in the lab so students and instructors breathe clean air while working on the machines. The Clean Air WeldStation™ welding booths are the perfect solution to protect the health of your students and faculty. Here are 10 reasons why you should use the Clean Air WeldStation™ in your facility.
1. PROTECT STUDENTS AND STAFF FROM WELD GAS / SMOKE
We believe hazardous gases and smoke should be drawn AWAY from the welder, NOT UP thru the welder. Since we have over 30 years of experience in air filtration, we realized early on this is the most important concept, and the best way of protecting the welder. By design, our WeldStations™, using 4,000 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air flow, rigorously pull away weld smoke contaminate, stopping it from reaching the breathing zone of the welder. We create a clean, safe, and hazard-free environment to help protect your students and faculty.
2. NO POLLUTION – ELIMINATE EMISSIONS
Clean Air America is committed to reducing emissions. With no ducting, our WeldStation™ is NOT vented to the outside. The WeldStation™ utilizes four vertically-mounted cartridge type filters, with filter efficiency: SAE 726 overall efficiency 99.9% using AC fine dust. Filter package includes 4 flame retardant cellulose filters cartridges providing a total of 904 sq. ft. of filter media. The back-draft source capture grid includes metal bafflers, backed by metal mesh spark arresting filters. The weld station captures the hazardous smoke contaminate, and releases CLEAN AIR back into the lab. Welding labs at many schools/colleges are aging, and still vent unfiltered weld smoke outside, directly onto campus grounds.
3. SAVE ENERGY
Clean Air America believes everyone should save energy whenever possible. With no ducting, our WeldStation™ does NOT vent to the outside, therefore the heat/cooling of your lab stays in the room. Also, there is no need to bring fresh air (make-up air) into the welding lab. Our WeldStation™ will pay for themselves, sometimes in a remarkably short period of time, with savings ranging from 30-80%.
4. IMPROVE ENROLLMENT
Educational facilities are quickly becoming sales tools for Industrial and Economic Development groups. Show local industry that your students are trained in a modern, safe setting. A bright, clean, state-of-the-art weld lab attracts students, increases enrollment, and impresses industry and government officials.
5. EASY INSTALLATION
The WeldStation™ units are easily installed, requiring only electricity and compressed air to be connected. Very little compressed air is used, as it is only utilized to clean the filters within the WeldStation™ to increase filter life.
6. MADE IN AMERICA – ONE SOURCE – FACTORY DIRECT
Clean Air America, Inc. is a team of engineers, consultants, and industrial air hygienists, with over 30 years of experience, whose core business is industrial air filtration. We are a stand-alone American manufacturer offering these engineered solutions FACTORY DIRECT and completely turnkey throughout North America. We are the sole designer, manufacturer, and source for all of our products, which are produced entirely by the Clean Air America team in our manufacturing plant, with no outsourcing, in Rome, Georgia, USA.
If the layout in the welding lab changes or a new building is constructed, simply disconnect the air and electric and move. The WeldStation™ requires no ducting and moves easily with a pallet jack or forklift, providing flexibility of lab design and layout.
8. EXTREMELY DURABLE
Made of 12-gauge steel, our WeldStation™ are built to stand the test of time, and will be in service for many years to come.
9. A COMPLETE WORK STATION with a SMALL FOOTPRINT
At just under five feet wide and only forty-one inches deep, our WeldStation™ makes configuring your lab very easy. It is a complete workstation, equipped with a 12-gauge steel booth, efficient LED lighting, a heavy-duty adjustable worktable, and self-contained internal air filtration. Our worktable adjusts to four different heights and slides out for welding large pieces of steel or long pieces of pipe.
10. LOW MAINTENANCE, LONG FILTER LIFE
Clean Air America’s WeldStation™ units require very little maintenance. Approximately 15 minutes per unit, every 10 weeks, is the estimated required maintenance time. Our programmable pulse filter cleaning system increases filter life to as much as 3 years or more.
