Albion, Oklahoma Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems

Albion Industrial exhaust systems are designed to capture smoke, fume, dust, high-temperature air, and corrosive gases. These "pollutants" are ducted to an air cleaner (purification system) before discharge to the outside or returned to the workspace. Capturing air-entrained materials is best accomplished at the emission source, defined as source capture.

Multiple arm designs are available depending on the airstream constituents. The parameters evaluated are temperature, explosivity, corrosiveness, and particulate, all factors determining the type of arm that should be selected for a process application. Matching your expected exhaust volume and arm useage with the required exhaust CFM, pressure loses, and airstream being captured is what we do. SysTech has successfully applied extraction arms for over thirty years and will assist with the correct selection for your process.

Albion, Oklahoma Fume extraction arms with hoods or suction nozzles are the number one tool to maximize source capture efficiency. They capture the contaminated airstreams while getting close to the source without disrupting or slowing down the work process or collecting too much useable product. When the task or workpiece is difficult to access, in an isolated area, or along awkward points on an assembly line, extraction arms are a proven solution for maximum particulate, smoke, and fume collection.

Albion, Oklahoma 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.

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

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

    Albion, Oklahoma Weld Fume Extraction Arm

    Albion, Oklahoma Weld Fume Extraction Arm

    The demand for weld smoke extraction arms is always high and mandates an arm category. Depending on the application, different designs use either smooth wall or flex hose tubing. Both designs use external positioning joints and a hood with an internal adjustable damper. The units are typically wall-mounted but have ceiling and floor support bracket options. Arm diameter options range from six to eight inches, and arm lengths vary from three feet up to thirty-six feet. Personal weld fume packages include a single extraction arm, exhaust fan, and air filter.

    • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
    • Standard units include a wall bracket. Ceiling mount options are available.
    • Arm diameters include 3", 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 3', 5', 7', 8', 10', 14', 16', 23', 30', and 36'.
    • Low-pressure drop
    • Shut off dampers built internally.

    Albion, Oklahoma 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.

    Albion, Oklahoma Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Albion, Oklahoma Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

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

    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.

    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.

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