Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems in Anderson Creek, North Carolina

Anderson Creek 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.

Anderson Creek, North Carolina 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.

Anderson Creek 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. Anderson Creek, North Carolina Laboratory bench mount arms are an option and are available in three and four-inch diameter tubes up to six feet in length.

  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • 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.
  • Arm diameters include 2", 3", and 4", and arm lengths include 25", 30", 39", 45",51", 53", 59", 65", 75", 79", 83", and 104".
  • Wall brackets, ceiling brackets, and table mount brackets are available.

Anderson Creek, North Carolina 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.

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.

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.

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

Anderson Creek 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.

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

Anderson Creek 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
  • 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)
  • Arm diameters are 6" and 8", and the operating range (compression) is 4' to 7'.
  • Swivel base
  • Powder coated steel wall bracket is standard
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.

Anderson Creek, North Carolina 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.
  • Shut off dampers built internally.
  • Arm diameters include 3", 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 3', 5', 7', 8', 10', 14', 16', 23', 30', and 36'.
  • Standard units include a wall bracket. Ceiling mount options are available.
  • Low-pressure drop

Anderson Creek, North Carolina 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.
