Extraction arms and collection elements

Extraction and filtration processes begin with the collection

An extraction system works most effectively when the contaminants are captured right at the place of origin. This allows the required extraction capacity and resulting operating costs to be kept low.

Using a suitable extraction arm, hose, etc. is recommended in combination with an optimal collection element for your particular situation, so that the effectiveness of your filtration system can be increased.

In order to provide the optimal solution for you, we work with leading vendors in extraction arms and collection elements. Take specialists’ advice regarding the most suitable extraction arm to use, because a lot is at stake here.

Do-it-yourself branding or a lack of expertise on using the best possible collection system often compromises extraction performance and, therefore, the filtration performance of a ventilation system.

Extraction arm use

Laser fumes, soldering fumes, welding fumes, vapors, gases, or dust – all of these airborne contaminants need to be covered by your filtration method. The “right” collection system is affected by a set of factors. The volume of air, airflow behavior, and contaminant type play just as crucial roles as selecting the right material for the extraction arm (aluminum, antistatic, chemically resistant, explosion-proof, etc.), the size or the type (hose, jointed arm). The place of use and workplace parameters should also be considered..

ULT provides a comprehensive assortment of extraction arms (Alsident/Flextractor) that are selected by skilled experts in close consultation with users. We generally recommend advisory discussions on using the collection solution that is the most suitable. This is the only way to guarantee that efficient and optimal workplace extraction always occurs. Extraction arms should not disturb workflow. There are a large number of extraction arm variants that have been designed respectively for special operating conditions (in health hazards, antistatic, etc.).


Please remember that do-it-yourself solutions and incomplete knowledge on extraction arms and their use often isn’t prudent, and in fact can negatively impact extraction and filtration performance.
