Franklin, California Fume Extraction Arm Mounting and Supports

Franklin, California Fume Extraction Arm Mounting and Supports

Fume extraction arms are continually moved, extended, and rotated, requiring them to be rigidly supported and mounted securely. A few factors affect mounting location: 1) the location of the fume source, 2) the coverage area for where the arm is used 3) the central system duct where the fume arm is connected.

Mounting options include:

Wall Mount - With duct systems running against a wall, mounting the arm (s) with brackets secured to a block wall or column is typical. If the central system duct is along the ceiling, on an outside wall, or mid-wall, there are designed brackets to fix the arm in place.

Bench Mount - Exhaust duct running along the floor allows mounting to a bench or tabletop. This mount has a standard option bracket for attaching the arm. Another standard bench mount is on a portable air filter or dust collector.

Ceiling Mount - Mounting the arms in the ceiling is an option if joists are present. A support weldment could be fabricated if a ceiling mount is a requirement. For low-weight short arms, the installation contractor can fabricate a wood fixture.

Stanchion Mount - When arms are located in the center of a facility having high bay areas, a stanchion will allow the mounting of an arm and hold it rigidly in place.

Franklin, California Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

Franklin, California 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.

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

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

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.

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

New and Retrofitted Extraction Arm Systems in Franklin

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.

New and Retrofitted Extraction Arm Systems in Franklin

Franklin CA Fume Extraction Arms

Industrial exhaust systems for capturing smoke, fume, dust, high-temperature air, and corrosive gases.

Franklin, California Stainless Steel Extraction Arms

Franklin, California 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.

  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • Available in hanging and benchtop models.
  • External joints are anodized aluminum.
  • Tubes, hood, internal shutoff damper, and duct connection collar are all constructed of 304SS
  • 304 SS grab handle on the hood for easy mobility and positioning.
  • 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.

Franklin 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.

  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • Models having black chemical resistance P.E. hose
  • They are manufactured following ATEX directive 2014/34/E.U. Category 2 for gases and dust.
  • Arm diameters include 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 5', 7', 10', 13', 16', and 23'.
  • Model having a semi-transparent white P.U. hose for dust-related pollutants.
  • Flexible PE hose, fully grounded.
