Database for Optimum Torch Extraction

A torch datadase from KEMPER now makes effective torch extraction possible. For optimum effect, the right balance between extraction capacity and individual torch technology is required. The KEMPER data pool with parameters of around 100 torch models provides the basis for the optimum capture of hazardous substances by means of the VacuFil i series of high-vacuum extraction units.

Manfred Könning, Technical Director at KEMPER, said, "Every extraction torch is different in terms of design. As a result, there is no off-the-shelf welding fume extraction system that is automatically suitable for every torch. The optimum extraction capacity has to be determined individually for each model."

The stored parameters automatically define the required extraction capacity of the VacuFil i device series. This gives the manufacturer data that facilitates optimum torch extraction. When a welder connects the VacuFil i extraction unit to an extraction torch, they simply have to select the connected torch via the touchscreen and the device automatically and permanently regulates the optimum extraction capacity, even adjusting it to changes in external conditions.

When these key parameters are defined for other models of torch or for new ones, the data is integrated by KEMPER in the Cloud. A system update is all that is needed and the VacuFil i series accesses the data without any action required by the welder or for the devices to be connected to the company network. The digital devices operate completely independently via SIM technology. Depending on the intensity of the welding process used, power requirements of the torch and the required hose length, the VacuFil 125i, 150i and 250i versions are available with different maximum extraction capacities. The W3 certification from the Institute for Occupational Safety and Health certifies that the systems comply with occupational safety standards.
