Economical Industrial Extraction Arms in Zenda KS


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:

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

Zenda KS Fume Extraction Arms

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

Zenda 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.

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

Zenda 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.
  • Flexible PE hose, fully grounded.
  • Model having a semi-transparent white P.U. hose for dust-related pollutants.
  • Arm diameters include 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 5', 7', 10', 13', 16', and 23'.
  • They are manufactured following ATEX directive 2014/34/E.U. Category 2 for gases and dust.

Zenda, Kansas Stainless Steel Extraction Arms

Zenda, Kansas 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.

  • 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'.
  • Tubes, hood, internal shutoff damper, and duct connection collar are all constructed of 304SS
  • Clear anti-static FDA hose rated for 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • External joints are anodized aluminum.
  • Available in hanging and benchtop models.
  • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
Zenda, Kansas Fume Extraction Arm Optional Accessories

Zenda, Kansas 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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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