Valle Vista 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. Valle Vista, Arizona Laboratory bench mount arms are an option and are available in three and four-inch diameter tubes up to six feet in length.

  • Arm diameters include 2", 3", and 4", and arm lengths include 25", 30", 39", 45",51", 53", 59", 65", 75", 79", 83", and 104".
  • Market-leading low-pressure drop
  • Wall brackets, ceiling brackets, and table mount brackets are available.
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
  • 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.

Valle Vista 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.

  • Arm diameters include 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 5', 7', 10', 13', 16', and 23'.
  • Models having black chemical resistance P.E. hose
  • 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.
  • Flexible PE hose, fully grounded.
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.

    Economical Industrial Extraction Arms in Valle Vista AZ


    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:

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

    Valle Vista, Arizona 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.

    Valle Vista 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.

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