AirBench release upgraded VertEx cross-draught system


AirBench are excited to announce the release of a major upgrade to our VertEx modular cross-draught extraction system.


VertEx is a self-contained extraction and filtration system that draws dust and fumes in through its ventilated front face, capturing them within internal panel filters, and returning clean air to the room. Multiple VertExes can be used


to create large extracted booths, or single units can be used directly behind an operator to allow at-source extraction from dusty processes.


The 2014 model VertEx


features a fully modular construction, allowing for rapid delivery of a unit built to each customer’s specification. The modular approach extends to


combining multiple units –


creating dust control booths of any size is now possible with minimal assembly time, and standardised rapid-fit enclosure options further increase flexibility.

The range has also been expanded to include additional sizes to cater for a wider range of applications.


Each unit is now supplied with an integ- rated EC fan, the most energy-efficient fan type currently available, meaning that even large installations can generally be run using existing single phase supplies.


Examples of current VertEx installations include dispensing of food products, weighing operations in bakeries, sanding and finishing of repaired aircraft parts, dusty packing operations, and large scale GRP fabrication.
