Forest, Mississippi Weld Fume Extraction Arm

Forest, Mississippi 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.
  • Standard units include a wall bracket. Ceiling mount options are available.
  • 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'.
  • Low-pressure drop

Forest, Mississippi 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.

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.

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

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.

Economical Industrial Extraction Arms in Forest MS


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

Forest 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.

  • 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.
  • They are manufactured following ATEX directive 2014/34/E.U. Category 2 for gases and dust.
  • Model having a semi-transparent white P.U. hose for dust-related pollutants.
  • Models having black chemical resistance P.E. hose

Exhaust Fans for Fume Extraction Arms in Forest

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.

Forest 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.

  • The hood is powder-coated aluminum and includes a grab handle and shutoff damper built within
  • Powder coated steel wall bracket is standard
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • Swivel base
  • Black hose rated up to 195 degrees Fahrenheit (intermittent 260 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Internal is telescopic
  • Arm diameters are 6" and 8", and the operating range (compression) is 4' to 7'.
