Even in the basic version, it is the price/performance winner in its device class, the company claims. At comparable price level, the SmartFil offers twice the filter surface and thus a significantly longer service life compared to 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 optimised the design to create a more attractive, rounded

The new extraction unit is available at a comparable price level to other industrial entry-level models but has by far the largest storage filter. At 25 square metres, the filter surface is in some cases twice as large as similar models. This means that even with the basic SmartFil equipment, welders achieve a significantly longer service life compared to conventional models. And welders can further upgrade the SmartFil with optional accessories, if required. The choice for the replacement filter is between the 25 square meter standard filter or a storage filter with a filter surface of 42 square meters that again extends the service life accordingly. In addition, the SmartFil can be optionally equipped with an automatic start/stop system and LED workplace lighting in the extraction hood.

While the optimised design of the extraction hood in the original equipment already makes less tracking necessary, the new extraction hood available at the end of the year 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 these additional accessories: 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.

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% of alveolar dust particles.
