Uses of Extractor Arms

Targeted Extraction of Fume, Dust, Smoke & Mist. When it comes to source capture, extraction arms are often the ideal way to remove concentrated amounts of smoke, fume and dust generated from industrial welding, soldering or grinding. Extractor arms are also commonly called fume arms, fume extractors, collection arms, or even elephant trunks. By removing the contaminants immediately away from the operation, arms enhance worker comfort and vision and prevent dust and smoke from migrating throughout the room. Extractor arms are available in a range of hose diameters and inlet hood sizes to provide solutions for a variety of tasks.

Types of contaminants collected by extractor arms include welding and soldering smoke, dust, fumes, mist, composite dust, fiberglass dust, marble dust, plastic dust, and food dust.

Industrial processes that benefit from the use of extractor arms include welding, soldering, grinding, cutting, blending and mixing operations, packaging, brazing, machining, electronics manufacturing, chemical labs, and pharmaceutical labs.

Advantages of Extractor Arms

  • Versatility. May be bench or ceiling mounted and ducted to an exhaust blower or integrated with a completed filtration system.
  • Positioning for Various Tasks. Arms are easily adjustable for each worker to capture dust or fume at the source.
  • Compact. Extractor arms can fit into available workspace and be folded out of the way when not in use.

What to Look For In an Extractor Arm

  • Positioning: Staying well in place, but also easily adjusted when needed; wide range of rotation.
  • Durable Construction: Hose and inlet hood resistant to abrasion and corrosion.
  • Adaptability: Can be retrofitted into existing systems or facilities and practical to re-install if needed.
  • Clear Path: Hose and ductwork unobstructed by hardware or joints, preventing trapping of contaminants.
  • Stainless Steel Construction: For applications such as chemical labs or food processing.
