Albany 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.

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

    Albany, Kentucky Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

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

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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.
