Extraction Arms

Extraction arms sometimes referred to as snorkel arms, are the recommend method for providing point source capture. Benefits of point source capture include reduced air volume, energy savings, effective contaminate containment, user friendly, low purchase cost compared to custom hood design, and increased work radius. Extraction arms are used in almost every industry for effective control of welding fumes, pharmaceutical dust, gases, oil mist, grinding dusts, caustic vapors and nuisance dust.

Plymovent Arms

Plymovent extraction arms have been the premier arm for the last 20 years.  These arms are AMCA tested to provide accurate pressure loss details to the most stringent of engineers. The aluminum construction with clear through design makes this a light weight unit that holds true to its position. The design allows the arm to reach over its own mounting height, a unique feature in the fume extraction arm industry.
