Flexible Extraction Arms and Accessories.
Extraction Arms, ESD-Safe Stayput Arms and Accessories
Flexible extraction arms are used to capture fumes “at source” and, if used correctly, can be an efficient way to prevent exposure to hazardous fumes and vapours in the workplace when connected to our range of fume extraction systems and dust collector units. The extraction arm can be positioned close to the fume source, tackling the fumes before they get to your lungs.
You can also fix many of these extraction arms to the bench or table via a bench bracket and clamps or, for a more permanent fixing, by drilling a hole in the bench top and fitting the unique “flip top” flush sealing. A flexible hose connects the arm to the pump unit, which would usually be nearby. The flush seal system enables you to remove the arm when it is not in use, covering the hole with the flip top.
The correct choice of capture device is critical for effective fume extraction. The flexi-arm range offers a variety of arms and nozzles for different uses. Order the arm hose kit first (sold separately) , followed by your choice of arm/nozzle from the list below. Fume cowls, or hoods are another way of capturing smoke and fumes from localised processes, such as adhesive application, hand soldering, rework and varnish applications. If you’re not sure which to choose, please call us for more help and free advice.
Please Note: Some BOFA products – such as the V200, V250, PB90 and PB180 – already include arm kits.
