Capture At Source - Extraction Arms
Capture at Source Extraction Arms are used to capture airborn contaminants before the contaminants have a chance to reach the workers' breathing space

Available in several different designs:
  • internally supported
  • externally supported
  • telescopic
  • mild or stainless steel construction
Lengths: Up to 45'

Diameters to suit Application: 2.5" through 8"

Typically the Extraction Arms are connected to a fixed extraction fan, Filter system or dust collector via direct mounting or a "Header Type" duct system.

Here are some questions you may want to consider when selecting an extraction arm:
  1. Is there any requirement Image (Good Looks)?
  2. What is the Budget $?
  3. Is it important for the product to be Ergonomically/easy to position?
  4. Is it important for the product to be Move into place and Stay in place (without additional process such as tightening joints)?
  5. What is the Diameter?
  6. Chemical resistivity for external components?
  7. Is there any requirement for Chemical resistivity for internal components?
  8. What is the Transport velocity to be maintained?
  9. What is the Noise level (Air noise generated as Air passes through the arm)?
  10. What is the Lbs of force required to position into place?
  11. What is the acceptable Flow rate and pressure drop?
  12. Range of motion (Does it move to where they the arm to move and will they arm stay in this position.)?
  13. Does the build up of contaminant on the internal surface of the extraction arm cause concern?
  14. Do we need to meet any codes (EG: Fire (Transport/Flammability, Explosivity, etc.)
  15. Are there any issues related to the build up of static electricity that should be mitigated?

  • Portable Vehicle Exhaust
    When diesel engines are started inside a building, these toxic air contaminants are emitted into the breathing area. It is well known that continued exposure to these contaminants has been linked to cancer and other serious health disorders.

    Fire and EMS facilities, garages, maintenance shops, or anywhere that trucks, buses, heavy equipment, or fleets of vehicles are operated are especially vulnerable to these toxic pollutants.

    The only proven method requires a "source capture" system, however, a system that pulls 100 percent of the exhaust emissions outside the building, through sealed hose or piping.

    Lev-co offers a complete line of Portable Vehicle Exhaust solutions for all makes and models of engines and equipment.
    Vehicle Exhaust - Cars & Trucks
    The best way to protect mechanics and garage employees from harmful gases released from automotive vehicles such as cars & trucks is CAPTURE AT SOURCE. This means directly at the tailpipe. This process involves 3 steps: 1 - Capture of the gases at source through suction nozzles 2 - Transporting the gases through exhaust hoses to an exhaust fan 3 - Transport the gases to atmosphere. Below is a list of the information that needs to be gathered prior to selecting the appropriate VEHICLE EXHAUST ventilation system: 1 – Max Engine HP 2 – Max RPM engines to be run at: 3 – Engine being run A - under load? or B - at idle? 4 – Diameter of smallest and largest tailpipes? 5 – Configuration of tailpipes? (EG: are they exposed, behind a grill, overhead stack, under carriage, etc…) 6 – Voltage and amperage available: 7 – Fixed or portable system:
