Developed for professional welders and yet affordable for newcomers, the new SmartFil extraction unit from KEMPER sets a new standard in mobile welding fume extraction for regular welding. Even in the basic version, it’s the price and performance winner in its device class. At comparable price level, the SmartFil offers twice the filter surface and thus a significantly longer service life compared with similar systems.
An even larger replacement filter and other accessories enable welders to further upgrade the extraction unit. Equipped for the first time with a round filter insert in this device class, KEMPER has also optimized the design to create a more attractive, rounded appearance.
The more different the hazard potential, the more different the necessary welding fume extraction: Which extraction unit is suitable for an individual welding application depends on both the duration of use and the amount of welding fumes produced.
“Our SmartFil now provides an extraction unit for a wide range of hazard intensities – and at the best price/performance ratio”, says Björn Kemper, CEO of KEMPER GmbH.
Twice the Service Life
The new extraction unit has the largest storage filter among similar industrial entry-level models – at 25 square meters, the filter surface is in some cases twice as large. This means that even with the basic SmartFil equipment, welders achieve a significantly longer service life compared to conventional models.
Welders can further upgrade the SmartFil with optional accessories if required. For the replacement filter, chose between the 25-square-meter standard filter or 42 square meters of filter surface. In addition, the SmartFil can be optionally equipped with an automatic start/stop system and LED workplace lighting in the extraction hood.
Fit For the Future
While the optimized design of the extraction hood in the original equipment already makes less tracking necessary, the new KEMPER extraction hood –available at the end of the 2020 in the extended version in combination with the new 180 mm extraction arm – ensures an even higher capture rate. The SmartFil is already designed for KEMPERbeats, a Bluetooth loudspeaker for playing your own music. An LED strip and the integrated volume flow monitoring also make welding work even safer and more pleasant.
New Round Design
KEMPER is also setting new standards in terms of design with the SmartFil. Like many comparable models, the extraction unit is no longer square but round. This is possible because – for the first time in this device class – KEMPER has integrated a round storage filter. As part of the housing, welders can easily remove this SafeChangeFilter from the extraction unit. This means that its disposal is completely contamination free.
Thanks to its mobility and the 360-degree rotating exhaust hood, the compact system can be used flexibly at changing workplaces. Welders gain greater reach by integrating longer extraction arms of up to four meters in a pipe or flexible hose version. The SmartFil filters more than 99.5 percent of alveolar dust particles.
