Airflow Systems Inc. offers the E-Z Arm® high-flow series of contaminant extractor arms for source-point collection and removal of dusts, powders, fumes, smoke, odors, and other contaminants before they can migrate throughout the facility to disrupt worker breathing zones, cause damage to sensitive equipment, and settle on finished goods.
The extractors can handle airflow rates up to 1,500 CFM while consuming 0.35 kWh. at 800 CFM. The high-capacity airflow volume and low energy consumption level are made possible by the company's patented pawl-and-sprocket, friction-release, external arm support system. The external support design eliminates internal supports, which can obstruct internal airflow, reduce collection efficiency, and increase energy consumption. The friction-release design eliminates resistance when moved away from gravity and engages positively when moved to a stationary position.
The 6.75-in.-dia. extractor arm is available in lengths of 7, 10, and 14 ft.
