Vehicle Exhaust Systems
Hose Drops, Reels and Other Equipment for the Removal of Exhaust Fumes
Learn about the vehicle exhaust removal systems that capture exhaust fumes from all types of vehicles, including both gas engines and diesel engines. Vehicle exhaust systems remove harmful fumes to insure optimal air quality in maintenance and repair facilities for automobiles, trucks, and heavy equipment, as well as in firehouses. Available equipment includes overhead systems, underground exhaust systems, and portable exhaust removal systems. Firehouse needs require specialized equipment for emergency vehicles, including a quick-release system to facilitate rapid exit of the vehicles.
Selection of vehicle exhaust fume extraction equipment takes into account the following important objectives:
- Complete removal of harmful exhaust emissions.
- Space considerations: multiple bays require service from exhaust systems without obstructing the work space or the movement of vehicles in and out of the facility.
- Ease of operation: exhaust removal equipment should be easy to access, engage, and return to stored position. In addition emergency vehicle exhaust systems must provide a reliable quick-release feature.
Vehicle exhaust hose drops are available as single or dual systems and are designed for easy mounting on wall or ceiling. The spring-loaded hose balancers keep hoses off the floor and facilitate maneuverability.
Retractable Hose Reels
Hose reels provide vehicle exhaust removal with easy accessibility as well as compact storage, and may be either spring-operated or motorized.
Emergency vehicles require an additional quick-release, automatic disconnect feature. Available equipment for fire station exhaust systems includes retractable hose drops, exhaust rails, sliding balancer track, and nozzles.
