Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems in Ashwood, South Carolina

Ashwood 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.

Ashwood, South 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.

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

    Ashwood, South Carolina Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Ashwood, South Carolina Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Ashwood, South Carolina Stainless Steel Extraction Arms

    Ashwood, South Carolina 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.

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

    Economical Industrial Extraction Arms in Ashwood SC


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