    Albert City ATEX Rated Fume Extraction Arms

    Explosion-rated extraction arms are available for the handling of explosive gases and dust. (The combustible materials need to be identified upfront to determine the arm selection and hose material, if there is particulate, is corrosive.) These extraction arms meet the requirements of the ATEX Directive 2014/34/E.U. Category 2 for gases and dust for Zones 1 and 21 (areas where an explosive atmosphere is likely to occur during regular operation). ATEX-rated fume arm tube diameters vary from four to eight inches, and arm lengths are optional from five feet up to twenty-three feet.

    • They are manufactured following ATEX directive 2014/34/E.U. Category 2 for gases and dust.
    • Model having a semi-transparent white P.U. hose for dust-related pollutants.
    • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
    • Arm diameters include 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 5', 7', 10', 13', 16', and 23'.
    • Models having black chemical resistance P.E. hose
    • Flexible PE hose, fully grounded.

    Albert City, Iowa Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

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

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    Albert City, Iowa Downdraft Tables, Benches, and Walk-In Enclosures

    Dust and fume generating work areas within a facility can often be controlled with self-contained and moveable downdraft tables. Tables can be designed for tabletop downdraft only or combined with a backdraft airflow design for nuisance dust capture. Particulate micron size and the amount of collected particulate, smoke, or fume determines the air filtration systems selected, with typical options including throw-away filters, pulse-clean dust collectors, or wet collectors. For some applications, a downdraft bench that incorporates downdraft and backdraft exhaust can be designed for repetitive work processes.

    Adding an enclosure around the dust source and containing the generated dust or fume in a walk-in booth minimizes the amount of air that needs to be cleaned. Dust control enclosures encapsulate processes where particulate, smoke, or fume are difficult to contain and are transported and dispersed within a room by cross drafts, mancoolers, compressed air clean-offs, or processing equipment like sanders and grinders.

    Economical Industrial Extraction Arms in Albert City IA


    These extraction arms serve a similar function as the general-purpose extraction arm but are constructed with a flexible hose instead of metal tubing. This arm has cost savings, but some optional features are unavailable. These arms were designed for light-duty, intermittent applications and have limitations on some airstream constituents. Importantly, each application is reviewed upfront by SysTech will guide you through the selection process safely. Hose diameter alternatives range from four to eight inches, and arm lengths range from five to thirty-six feet. The standard hose material is blue PVC or white PVC with an option for PE-coated polyamide fabric for mild corrosive applications. Custom sizes can be designed using various parts for different arm models combined to make a new arm design.

    Features and options:

    • External arm support
    • Lowest possible pressure drop, which helps save energy and lowers sound levels
    • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
    • High positional stability
    • Hood designed for maximum capture efficiency and extraction
    • Unique ease of maneuverability
    • Arm diameters include 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 5', 7', 10', 13', 16', 23', 30', and 36'.
    • Lightweight construction balanced by two gas springs.
    Albert City, Iowa Stainless Steel Extraction Arms

    Albert City, Iowa Stainless Steel Extraction Arms

    Aggressive airstream chemistry may require the arms to be constructed of 304 stainless steel. The tubing and hood are stainless, with external adjustment joints at the hood and swivel joints. Arm assemblies have a wall mounting bracket and an internal damper for airflow adjustment and shutoff. The standard flex hose at the joints is an FDA Pur Antistatic hose. Stainless steel arm tube diameters vary from three to eight inches, and arm lengths from three feet up to fourteen feet, all suitable for washdown applications. 316 stainless steel construction is an available option.

    • Arm diameters include 3", 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 3', 5', 7', 8', 10', and 14'.
    • 304 SS grab handle on the hood for easy mobility and positioning.
    • External joints are anodized aluminum.
    • Available in hanging and benchtop models.
    • Clear anti-static FDA hose rated for 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • Tubes, hood, internal shutoff damper, and duct connection collar are all constructed of 304SS
    • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
