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

Industrial exhaust systems for capturing smoke, fume, dust, high-temperature air, and corrosive gases.

Arbutus 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. Arbutus, Maryland 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".
  • Market-leading low-pressure drop
  • Polypropylene (P.P.), ESD (spark forming applications), and ATEX (combustible applications) options are available.
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • Wall brackets, ceiling brackets, and table mount brackets are available.
  • Various hood options for more efficient source capture include dome hoods, square hoods, flat screen hoods, metal hoods, and suction nozzles.

Arbutus, Maryland Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

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.

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.

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.

Arbutus, Maryland Weld Fume Extraction Arm

Arbutus, Maryland 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.
  • Low-pressure drop
  • 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.
  • Shut off dampers built internally.

Exhaust Fans for Fume Extraction Arms in Arbutus

Industrial exhaust system arms often need a connection to an exhaust fan for isolated applications or when needed for additional static resistance when connecting to an existing duct system. Fan CFM and static pressure must be examined in both cases to maintain system performance. When coupling with an exhaust fan, it should be constructed of similar or compatible materials to the extraction arm.

Cast Aluminum Pressure Blowers

Cast aluminum pressure blowers are typically supplied by manufacturers where there is a non-corrosive airstream. They are light, come in a wide range of designs, are compact, and are AMCA B spark-resistant as standard. Motors are available in single and three-phase TEFC and EXP frames.

Carbon Steel Fume Exhauster

If conditions of the airstream are suitable, a carbon steel painted fan is selected in a direct drive arrangement with a horizontal mount configuration that requires minimal space. Steel blowers have the option for AMCA construction up to AMCA A and 304 and 316 SS construction. Motors are available in single and three-phase TEFC and EXP frames.

Industrial Plastic Fume Exhaust Fans

Corrosive environments require materials of construction that will not degrade over time. Plastic construction is misunderstood as fragile, but industrial-grade designs are compatible with the harshest environment. The plastics typically used for construction are PVC or polypropylene (P.P.) and are an excellent choice for the efficient conveyance of corrosive, chemically laden, humid, or polluted gases, fumes, and air. Motors are available in single and three-phase TEFC and EXP frames.
