What is Extractor Arm?
The Extractor Arm is a device which allows the user to position a suction hood to capture fumes or dust close the generation spot with complete ease and flexibility and can be fitted to Fumekiller®, DustBag® equipment.
This highly useful accessory may be used with the Fumekiller® and DustBag® units. Maintenance and running costs are low as all components are built for continuous, reliable, safe and efficient use.These systems contribute to a safer, healthier work environment where toxic airborne pollutants are removed. We provide excellent factory support and product expertise based on years of industrial process emission control.
The Extractor Arm consists of 2 ducts made of aluminium or stainless steel, connected by PVC flexible hoses and mounted on interconnected support rods with friction-loaded pivots. A suction hood is attached to one end. The other end is attached to a rotating hollow cylinder. The suction hood, ducts, hose and rotating cylinder form a passage for the fumes or dust. The entire arm is self balanced and articulated at 3 points. This allows the suction hood to be positioned by hand at any point with a reach of 2 meters (or 4 meters) to & fro and 2 meters (or 4 meters) up & down with complete ease & flexibility with minimum effort. The Extractor Arm can be fitted to most of our Fumekiller® models & DustBag® models. The arm can also be fitted to overhead ducting to provide suction points close to the floor level for the capture of fumes or dust from pollution generation spots.
How it Works
The Extractor Arm consists of elements of aluminium ducts joined by flexible hose, articulated at 3 fulcrum points. One end of the arm is fitted with a swivel fixture. The arm is self balanced using friction pads and a telescopic gas tube. The arm can be swivelled by hand through about 270 degrees and can be positioned easily within a nominal distance specified for each arm. With the Extractor Arm, fitted to the Fumekiller® or DustBag® the suction hood of the arm is to be positioned close to the fumes/dust generation spot. The fumes/dust will be sucked through the suction hood and will reach the Fumekiller® or DustBag® filtration.
