Amity, Arkansas Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems

Amity 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.

Amity, Arkansas 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.

    Amity, Arkansas Fume Extraction Arm Mounting and Supports

    Amity, Arkansas 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.

    Amity, Arkansas Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Amity, Arkansas 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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Amity 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. Amity, Arkansas Laboratory bench mount arms are an option and are available in three and four-inch diameter tubes up to six feet in length.

    • Arm diameters include 2", 3", and 4", and arm lengths include 25", 30", 39", 45",51", 53", 59", 65", 75", 79", 83", and 104".
    • Polypropylene (P.P.), ESD (spark forming applications), and ATEX (combustible applications) options are available.
    • Market-leading low-pressure drop
    • 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.
    • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.

    Economical Industrial Extraction Arms in Amity AR


    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
    • 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.
    • High positional stability
    • Hood designed for maximum capture efficiency and extraction
    • Lowest possible pressure drop, which helps save energy and lowers sound levels
    • Unique ease of maneuverability
    • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.

    New and Retrofitted Extraction Arm Systems in Amity

    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.
