Extraction arms are suitable for most industrial process applications such as brazing, welding and soldering etc.
Auto Extract Systems extraction arms are suitable for most industrial process applications such as brazing, welding and soldering etc. Extraction arms are manufactured in blue PVC hose; however, they are also available in white PVC, stainless steel or an ATEX-rated version depending on the application. They are available in three varieties of diameters, including 100mm, 125mm and 160mm and in a wide variety of lengths, from 1,500mm to 11,000mm. Extraction arms can be specified with additional accessories, including control switches and lights (located at the capture hood for operator ease), rectangular capture hoods, extension hoses and spark traps.
In HSE's HSG WL3: Welding Fume Control guidance, it recommends: "Using a movable fume capture hood on a flexible extraction arm for large to extra-large workpieces."
Auto Extract Systems has a broad range of extraction arms available that are suitable for most industrial process applications, such as brazing, welding and soldering etc. Extraction arms are a very versatile product and are available in a choice of finishes (depending on the application), diameters, lengths and accessories. They are a very popular product in our range as they provide at-source extraction and remove the pollutant from the workplace before it has the opportunity to dissipate into the workplace.
This type of extraction arms should be utilised in conjunction with one of our centrifugal fans to vent the captured fumes either directly to the atmosphere or depending on the working process, via a filtration unit.
