Alafaya FL Fume Extraction Arms

Industrial exhaust systems for capturing smoke, fume, dust, high-temperature air, and corrosive gases.

New and Retrofitted Extraction Arm Systems in Alafaya

When you install a new fume extraction arm or arms, it improves air cleaning system performance, resulting in a cleaner work environment. Expectations can be met if all-important selection factors are considered and limitations for capture are pointed out.

If you are repairing, replacing, or adding a new arm or arms, to an existing system, the critical components of the fume exhaust system should be reviewed, including the duct system, the exhaust fan (s), and the air cleaning device. Systems are only as efficient as their individual parts, and SysTech will review your components with you to evaluate if your system is operating at peak performance.

Alafaya Laboratory Extraction Arms

The laboratory extraction arm is comprised of thin-wall anodized aluminum tubes with polypropylene swivel joints. A frequent option selection is all polypropylene construction with stainless steel airstream components for highly corrosive airstreams. Additionally, these arms may be constructed of conductive polypropylene material for spark resistance and ATEX-rated explosive applications. Arm tube diameters range from two to four inches, and arm lengths range from two feet up to eight and a half feet. Arms can be paired with a wall or ceiling bracket, several optional hoods, or a suction nozzle. Alafaya, Florida Laboratory bench mount arms are an option and are available in three and four-inch diameter tubes up to six feet in length.

  • Market-leading low-pressure drop
  • Arm diameters include 2", 3", and 4", and arm lengths include 25", 30", 39", 45",51", 53", 59", 65", 75", 79", 83", and 104".
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • Various hood options for more efficient source capture include dome hoods, square hoods, flat screen hoods, metal hoods, and suction nozzles.
  • Wall brackets, ceiling brackets, and table mount brackets are available.
  • Polypropylene (P.P.), ESD (spark forming applications), and ATEX (combustible applications) options are available.

General Purpose Alafaya, Florida Industrial Extraction Arm

"General Purpose" Alafaya, Florida Industrial Extraction Arm

We label these arms a standard issue because they can be universally applied to most fume and dust extraction applications. The general-purpose arm is suitable for capturing smoke, dust, or any non-corrosive product. They are constructed of smooth powder-coated steel or aluminum tubing, a capture hood with adjustment grips, flex hose joint covers, and external adjustment brackets for the hood and swivel joints. The assemblies come standard with a wall mounting bracket but also have ceiling and floor support brackets available. An internal damper is included for airflow adjustment or shutoff. The arm mounting brackets allow for 180⁰ and 360⁰ rotation. Arm diameter options range from three to ten inches, and arm lengths vary from three to thirty-two feet. The maximum airstream temperature for these arms is about 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

Features and options:

  • Arm diameters include 3", 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 3', 5', 7', 8', 10', and 14'.
  • Includes duct connection collar
  • The wall bracket is powder-coated black.
  • An optional fume exhaust fan in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • Black hose rated for 195 degrees Fahrenheit (intermittent 260 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Grab handle around the hood that is aluminum powder-coated black.
  • A shutoff damper is built into the lower tube.
Alafaya, Florida Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

Alafaya, Florida Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

Custom hoods – To maximize fume capture, standard circular or scoop-shaped hoods can be changed to a slotted design, rectangular, flat, or custom fabricated.

Tube materials – For those arms using tubing, construction materials include painted steel, aluminum, stainless steel, P.P., or PVC. Extraction arms that use flex hoses can use clear, fire retardant, high temperature, or anti-static hoses.

Floor Stanchion - When the ceiling is too high, or there are no walls, a floor stanchion can be used to mount the arm.

Hood lights – Lights can be attached to the arm hood to provide better vision at the work point. Often used in welding applications.

Wall Mount - A wall bracket designed to mount the arm to any wall or beam within the facility.

Ceiling Mount - For applications where arms are mounted/supported by the ceiling. The ceiling bracket varies in height depending on the height of the hard deck or Unistrut.

Nozzles - To get even closer to source capture, suction nozzles and flexible suction nozzles are available.

Alafaya Telescopic Fume Extraction Arm

Telescopic extraction arms are designed to fit into confined spaces. They are used for those applications when the operator wants to "compress" the arm out of the way and pull it back to a working position. The unit will mount on the ceiling, wall, or floor stanchion. There are optional designs from which to choose. There is an arm with a ridged flex hose in six or eight-inch diameter having an operating range of seven feet to almost ten feet or a thin-walled tube design that is available in five-inch diameter and can telescope three feet out to seven feet. Both telescopic arm options would include a manual damper.

  • Arm diameters are 6" and 8", and the operating range (compression) is 4' to 7'.
  • The hood is powder-coated aluminum and includes a grab handle and shutoff damper built within
  • Powder coated steel wall bracket is standard
  • Black hose rated up to 195 degrees Fahrenheit (intermittent 260 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Swivel base
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • Internal is telescopic
