Fume Arms

Fume arms a full line of articulated fume extraction arms

Fume extraction arms are replacing overhead hoods. Workers were actually breathing the dust and smoke-filled air as it was travelling upward toward the hood. Source capture is the safe  way to eliminate harmful pollutants. From laboratories to large welding shops, Maxair fume arms will get the job done. MAXAIR fume arms are built to reduce to a minimum the presence of industrial indoor air particles. From laboratories right up to the large welding shops, MAXAIR fume arms will get the job done. MAXAIR fume arms are ideal for a whole range of capture applications: smoke, steam, dust, welding and nocive gas. Highly functional design facilitates fume arm handling and ease of movement.

All supports and articulation joints are outside of the fume arm. The tubes are smooth, without any obstacle that could reduce airflow, accumulate deposits and increase internal friction, which consume energy unnecessarily. External supports and articulation joints are readily accessible, easy to adjust and require no maintenance. A vacuum damper is included with every MAXAIR arm. The arms are shipped fully assembled, ready to be installed. MAXAIR fume arms are also available in stainless steel version for aggressive environment or food and laboratory facilities.

General description

Standard fume arm tubes are made of steel with external cast aluminum joints, which include friction discs and are fully adjustable. The arms have a handle that completely encircles the hood to facilitate easy positioning. Aluminum hood diameters vary from 7” on the 3” arms, to 13” on the 6” and the 8” arms. All joints include a 275 °F (135 °C) hoses, which are gear clamped to the tubes. All hoods may be ­fitted with an optional 24 V. LED light kit and/or fan start/stop switches. The hood diverter (except on 3’’ arms) increases capture velocity. MAXAIR self-locking arms can be combined with ­several accessories to provide the best solution to specific problems.

A large variety of hoods can be manufactured to suit ­par­ticular requirements. Tubes are also available in PVC, ­aluminium, 304 stainless steel (luster finish) or 316 stainless steel (brushed finish). Custom colors for arm tubes are ­available on request (minimum quantity required).
