Rhode Island Fume and Dust Extraction Arm Systems

Rhode Island 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.

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.

Rhode Island 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.

    Rhode Island Stainless Steel Extraction Arms

    Rhode Island 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.
    • 304 SS grab handle on the hood for easy mobility and positioning.
    • External joints are anodized aluminum.
    • Tubes, hood, internal shutoff damper, and duct connection collar are all constructed of 304SS
    • Arm diameters include 3", 4", 5", 6", and 8", and arm lengths include 3', 5', 7', 8', 10', and 14'.
    • Available in hanging and benchtop models.
    • Clear anti-static FDA hose rated for 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Rhode Island Fume Extraction Arm Mounting and Supports

    Rhode Island 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.

    Rhode Island 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.

    • Swivel base
    • Black hose rated up to 195 degrees Fahrenheit (intermittent 260 degrees Fahrenheit)
    • 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.
    • Arm diameters are 6" and 8", and the operating range (compression) is 4' to 7'.

    Rhode Island 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'.
    • Flexible PE hose, fully grounded.
    • 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.
    • Optional fume exhaust fans in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
    • Models having black chemical resistance P.E. hose

    General Purpose Rhode Island Industrial Extraction Arm

    "General Purpose" Rhode Island 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:

    • An optional fume exhaust fan in aluminum, carbon steel, or PVC.
    • Includes duct connection collar
    • A shutoff damper is built into the lower tube.
    • The wall bracket is powder-coated black.
    • 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)
    • Grab handle around the hood that is aluminum powder-coated black.
