Economical Industrial Extraction Arms in Fidelity IL


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:

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

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

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

    General Purpose Fidelity, Illinois Industrial Extraction Arm

    "General Purpose" Fidelity, Illinois Industrial Extraction Arm

    We label these arms a standard issue because they can be universally applied to most fume and dust extraction applications. The general-purpose arm is suitable for capturing smoke, dust, or any non-corrosive product. They are constructed of smooth powder-coated steel or aluminum tubing, a capture hood with adjustment grips, flex hose joint covers, and external adjustment brackets for the hood and swivel joints. The assemblies come standard with a wall mounting bracket but also have ceiling and floor support brackets available. An internal damper is included for airflow adjustment or shutoff. The arm mounting brackets allow for 180⁰ and 360⁰ rotation. Arm diameter options range from three to ten inches, and arm lengths vary from three to thirty-two feet. The maximum airstream temperature for these arms is about 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Features and options:

    • Grab handle around the hood that is aluminum powder-coated black.
    • The wall bracket is powder-coated black.
    • A shutoff damper is built into the lower tube.
    • Includes duct connection collar
    • Black hose rated for 195 degrees Fahrenheit (intermittent 260 degrees Fahrenheit)
    • Arm diameters include 3", 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 3', 5', 7', 8', 10', and 14'.
    • An optional fume exhaust fan in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.

    Fidelity 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.

    • Arm diameters include 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 5', 7', 10', 13', 16', and 23'.
    • Flexible PE hose, fully grounded.
    • 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
    • They are manufactured following ATEX directive 2014/34/E.U. Category 2 for gases and dust.

    Fidelity, Illinois Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Fidelity, Illinois 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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Hood lights – Lights can be attached to the arm hood to provide better vision at the work point. Often used in welding applications.
