Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems in Rockford, Tennessee

Rockford Fume 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.

Rockford, Tennessee 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.

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.

    Rockford, Tennessee Stainless Steel Extraction Arms

    Rockford, Tennessee 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.

    • Tubes, hood, internal shutoff damper, and duct connection collar are all constructed of 304SS
    • Clear anti-static FDA hose rated for 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • 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.
    • 304 SS grab handle on the hood for easy mobility and positioning.
    • External joints are anodized aluminum.
    • Available in hanging and benchtop models.

    Rockford 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.

    • Models having black chemical resistance P.E. hose
    • 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.
    • Arm diameters include 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 5', 7', 10', 13', 16', and 23'.
    • Flexible PE hose, fully grounded.
    • Model having a semi-transparent white P.U. hose for dust-related pollutants.

    Rockford, Tennessee Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Rockford, Tennessee Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

    Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

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

    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.

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

    Wall Mount - A wall bracket designed to mount the arm to any wall or beam within the facility.

    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.

    General Purpose Rockford, Tennessee Industrial Extraction Arm

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

    Rockford, Tennessee Downdraft Tables, Benches, and Walk-In Enclosures

    Dust and fume generating work areas within a facility can often be controlled with self-contained and moveable downdraft tables. Tables can be designed for tabletop downdraft only or combined with a backdraft airflow design for nuisance dust capture. Particulate micron size and the amount of collected particulate, smoke, or fume determines the air filtration systems selected, with typical options including throw-away filters, pulse-clean dust collectors, or wet collectors. For some applications, a downdraft bench that incorporates downdraft and backdraft exhaust can be designed for repetitive work processes.

    Adding an enclosure around the dust source and containing the generated dust or fume in a walk-in booth minimizes the amount of air that needs to be cleaned. Dust control enclosures encapsulate processes where particulate, smoke, or fume are difficult to contain and are transported and dispersed within a room by cross drafts, mancoolers, compressed air clean-offs, or processing equipment like sanders and grinders.
