Fort Shaw, Montana Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems

Fort Shaw 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.

Fort Shaw, Montana 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 Fort Shaw

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.

    General Purpose Fort Shaw, Montana Industrial Extraction Arm

    "General Purpose" Fort Shaw, Montana 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.
    • Black hose rated for 195 degrees Fahrenheit (intermittent 260 degrees Fahrenheit)
    • Includes duct connection collar
    • The wall bracket is powder-coated black.
    • A shutoff damper is built into the lower tube.
    • 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.

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

    • Wall brackets, ceiling brackets, and table mount brackets are available.
    • Market-leading low-pressure drop
    • 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".
    • Polypropylene (P.P.), ESD (spark forming applications), and ATEX (combustible applications) options are available.
    • Various hood options for more efficient source capture include dome hoods, square hoods, flat screen hoods, metal hoods, and suction nozzles.

    Fort Shaw, Montana Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

    Nozzles - To get even closer to source capture, suction nozzles and flexible suction nozzles are available.

    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.

    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.

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