For cost-efficient entry into integral welding fume extraction, the new WallMaster filter system from Kemper lets metalworking companies optimize their protective welding equipment for employees. With an area of 42 square meters, the stationary unit has the largest filter surface in the entry-level price segment. Little effort is required to integrate and mount the unit behind extraction elements such as extraction arms or fans with no need for its own power supply. This also makes it suitable for simple retrofitting.

“Protecting employees from harmful welding fumes should not fail because of the costs of clean air technology,” said Björn Kemper, chairman of the management board of Kemper GmbH. “The WallMaster means we are now closing the gap in the entry-level segment between low price barriers, effective filter technology and a space-saving product design.”

The stationary filter unit is suitable for filtering medium quantities of welding fumes and dust at up to two workplaces simultaneously. The filter surface of 42 square meters is decisive in this respect. This is the highest capacity in the entry-level price segment of stationary welding fume extraction on the market to date. Users thus achieve significantly longer filter lives compared to conventional filter units. The WallMaster effectively separates even ultra-fine particles with a size of less than 0.1 µm to a degree of more than 99.5 percent.

The filter unit can be mounted on the hall wall, a pillar, or on a separately available stand, and its compact housing saves space in production areas. The WallMaster is easy to combine with collection devices from various manufacturers — for example, with one or two exhaust sets. It is even possible to retrofit the unit in existing collection devices.

“The WallMaster allows companies to expand their protective welding equipment from pure exhaust air to an effective air pollution control concept,” said Kemper. “We are now creating a cost-effective expansion option for metal processors who previously managed without a filter in their welding fume extraction system.”

Thanks to the integrated SafeChangeFilter technology, Kemper enables a contamination-free filter change. In this way, welders do not come into contact with the harmful hazardous substances in the welding fumes — even during disposal. An integrated lifting device facilitates the filter change. Due to the mechanical operation, the system is energy self-sufficient.
