Lincoln Electric debuts Prism Compact Air Filtration System

Dec. 17, 2019
Company says new system delivers easy installation, maintenance in a quiet, compact design

Lincoln Electric recently added a new system to the Prism series—the Prism Compact air filtration system for welding and cutting applications.

The Prism Compact system boasts a compact design and quiet operation, the company said, while delivering quick and easy installation and maintenance to help promote a safe and healthy work environment.

The Prism Compact’s design enables the user to position the unit next to a cutting table or robotic cell. Available in indoor and outdoor configurations, the system sits at a lower height configuration to fit comfortably and efficiently into smaller spaces.

Additionally, the system ships without a pallet and assembles without the need for a crane. Lincoln Electric’s Smart Connect technology produces quick and seamless wire connections. The circuitry enables the operator to connect a variety of functions: power, compressed air and duct sensor for fan speed control.

The Prism Compact operates quietly, thanks to a silencer and sound deadening materials that reduce airflow noise. The variable frequency drive (VFD) adjusts fan speed and extraction airflow to the volume of air moving through the system in a given application, while intelligent fan control technology helps maximize fume extraction, conserve energy and extend equipment life, the company maintained.

The unit’s automatic cleaning process is initiated once the pre-set pressure differential has been reached, making maintenance easy. The vertical filter orientation allows for easier and more efficient cleaning, and particulate matter is collected in a 20-gallon dustbin.

Lastly, a UL-listed and FM-approved Prism Thermal Suppression system is available with the Prism Compact, as well as an integrated spark arrestor for added safety. Both of these features are optional but highly recommended by Lincoln Electric, especially for applications that include oily or stamped parts.
