Maintenance of a welding fume extraction system
Regular checks and maintenance of a welding fume extraction system is needed in order to be sure that the system performs at its best. Periodic maintenance is necessary for a stable and optimal system, therefore it is recommended to do regular inspections and replace the filters. In many countries a yearly inspection is even obliged by law. We understand that our systems for welding fume removal are only supporting your business, but optimal performance of the filtration system is important to keep your staff healthy and factory clean.
When maintaining your welding fume extraction system you might come across system parts that need to be replaced. These spare parts can be obtained via a Plymovent office or a distributor near you. To see which replacement parts are available, you can check the spare part lists, look at the product manual or call one of our offices or distributors.
Filters are an important part of the welding fume extraction system. When filters are replaced by a generic replacement filter, the systems performance might reduce. Therefore Plymovent recommends using Plymovent cartridges only. They can be bought through a Plymovent office or your local Plymovent distributor.
Most of the newer installations of Plymovent are equipped with the ControlPro. The ControlPro can be updated with new firmware. We recommend to always update these systems with the latest version available.
Some Plymovent offices and/or distributors offer service contracts. These service contracts include e.g. checking the system, cleaning or replacing filters, inspection of the engines and controls, cleaning of the fan blades and monitoring the air pressure. Worn out parts can be replaced on time, to prevent additional downtime. Another advantage is that the service contract can act as proof for the government officials that the system is performing as it should.
