Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems in Altamonte Springs, Florida

Altamonte Springs Fume 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.

Altamonte Springs, Florida 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.

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.

Economical Industrial Extraction Arms in Altamonte Springs FL


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:

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

Altamonte Springs 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.

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

Altamonte Springs, Florida Fume Extraction Arm Mounting and Supports

Altamonte Springs, Florida Fume Extraction Arm Mounting and Supports

Fume extraction arms are continually moved, extended, and rotated, requiring them to be rigidly supported and mounted securely. A few factors affect mounting location: 1) the location of the fume source, 2) the coverage area for where the arm is used 3) the central system duct where the fume arm is connected.

Mounting options include:

Wall Mount - With duct systems running against a wall, mounting the arm (s) with brackets secured to a block wall or column is typical. If the central system duct is along the ceiling, on an outside wall, or mid-wall, there are designed brackets to fix the arm in place.

Bench Mount - Exhaust duct running along the floor allows mounting to a bench or tabletop. This mount has a standard option bracket for attaching the arm. Another standard bench mount is on a portable air filter or dust collector.

Ceiling Mount - Mounting the arms in the ceiling is an option if joists are present. A support weldment could be fabricated if a ceiling mount is a requirement. For low-weight short arms, the installation contractor can fabricate a wood fixture.

Stanchion Mount - When arms are located in the center of a facility having high bay areas, a stanchion will allow the mounting of an arm and hold it rigidly in place.

Altamonte Springs, Florida 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Altamonte Springs 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.
