FILTOWER Range

Plug & Play System FILTOWER

Hall ventilation systems without piping for maximum flexibility in the working area.

The FILTOWER series are used when the local extraction of smoke, dust and oil mist is not sufficient on its own or if direct extraction is not practical when working on large and complex work pieces. Up to 70% of the annual heating costs can be saved by using layer ventilation system FILTOWER which is recommended by the Employers’ Liability Association.

Plug & play room ventilation systems as a practical supplement to local extraction.

The legislation stipulates that hazardous substances must be extracted directly at the point where they emerge. However, local extraction is not always sufficient or indeed possible. For example, the positioning and repositioning of an extraction element is both complicated and time-consuming when processing large work pieces with constant workstation changeovers. What’s more, if a welder fails to position the suction device correctly, smoke particles can still enter the hall air. Employees who are not wearing personal protective equipment then breathe in these hazardous substances without any filtration.

In order to further protect employees in such situations, ESTA has developed the decentralized room and hall ventilation system FILTOWER. It is used in addition to local extraction and functions in line with the principles of layer ventilation recommended by the German Institute for Occupational Safety. This results in a major improvement to room air quality, compliance with the legal working limits and healthier employees.
