Articulating Boom Arms
Articulating boom arms allow articulation across a 16m working area and have a broad range of applications. Typically, boom swing arms are ideal for use in high-level buildings and those with crane tracks as they can cover a large area of a work bay yet are easily retracted when not in use. Articulated extraction arms provide an ideal solution for the military, plant and agricultural workshops.
An additional benefit of the boom exhaust arms is that they're capable of serving more than one workplace, whilst only being connected to a central local exhaust ventilation (LEV) system. Articulating boom arms are manufactured from high quality steel profiles and include smooth ball-bearing pivots and a disc brake to ensure easy positioning.
How Articulating Boom Arms Work?
Exhaust pipes are directly connected to a suitable exhaust nozzle to capture fumes produced at-source, before they're able to disperse into the broader working environment. Flexible hose and boom tubes connect the exhaust arms from the nozzle to the ducting which runs to the fan.
