Tower Lakes, Illinois Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

Tower Lakes, Illinois Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

Fume extraction arms have optional accessories that include:

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.

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.

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.

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

New and Retrofitted Extraction Arm Systems in Tower Lakes

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.

Tower Lakes 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.

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

Tower Lakes, Illinois Weld Fume Extraction Arm

Tower Lakes, Illinois 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.

  • 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
  • Standard units include a wall bracket. Ceiling mount options are available.
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • Shut off dampers built internally.
General Purpose Tower Lakes, Illinois Industrial Extraction Arm

"General Purpose" Tower Lakes, 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:

  • Black hose rated for 195 degrees Fahrenheit (intermittent 260 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • The wall bracket is powder-coated black.
  • A shutoff damper is built into the lower tube.
  • Includes duct connection collar
  • Grab handle around the hood that is aluminum 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'.

Tower Lakes 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.

  • Model having a semi-transparent white P.U. hose for dust-related pollutants.
  • 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'.
