Aulander, North Carolina Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems
Aulander 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.
Aulander, 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.
New and Retrofitted Extraction Arm Systems in Aulander
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.
Aulander, North 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.
- External joints are anodized aluminum.
- 304 SS grab handle on the hood for easy mobility and positioning.
- Tubes, hood, internal shutoff damper, and duct connection collar are all constructed of 304SS
- Arm diameters include 3", 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 3', 5', 7', 8', 10', and 14'.
- Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
- Clear anti-static FDA hose rated for 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Available in hanging and benchtop models.
Aulander 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. Aulander, 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.
- Market-leading low-pressure drop
- Polypropylene (P.P.), ESD (spark forming applications), and ATEX (combustible applications) options are available.
- Arm diameters include 2", 3", and 4", and arm lengths include 25", 30", 39", 45",51", 53", 59", 65", 75", 79", 83", and 104".
- 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.
Aulander NC Fume Extraction Arms
Industrial exhaust systems for capturing smoke, fume, dust, high-temperature air, and corrosive gases.
Exhaust Fans for Fume Extraction Arms in Aulander
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.
Aulander, North Carolina 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.
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.
Nozzles - To get even closer to source capture, suction nozzles and flexible suction nozzles are available.
Wall Mount - A wall bracket designed to mount the arm to any wall or beam within the facility.
Floor Stanchion - When the ceiling is too high, or there are no walls, a floor stanchion can be used to mount the arm.
