With a coverage area of 452 square feet (42 square meters), the WallMaster from Kemper GmbH (Vreden, Germany) can simultaneously filter medium quantities of welding fumes and dust at two work stations. 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 separates more than 99.5% of ultrafine particles of less than 0.1 µm. SafeChangeFilter technology with integrated lifting device enables contamination-free filter change so welders don’t come into contact with hazardous substances during disposal.
The filter unit can be mounted on the wall, pillar, or separately available stand. Its compact housing saves space. Due to the mechanical operation, the system is energy-self-sufficient. 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.
The WallMaster is easy to combine with collection devices from various manufacturers – for example, with one or two exhaust sets. It’s 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,” says Chairman of the Management Board Björn Kemper. “We’re creating a cost-effective expansion option for metal processors who previously managed without a filter in their welding fume extraction system.”
