Exhaust extraction

Vehicle exhaust extraction for cars, trucks, buses, fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles

Exhaust emissions from a cold-start engine can reach toxic levels within a closed building. Even though the vehicles are run only a short time indoors and with open doors, the odorless carbon monoxide (vehicle exhaust) builds up in the building. Without control and removal of the vehicle exhaust fumes they can lead to worker illness, heavier facility maintenance and damage to the sensitive electronics of diagnostic and servicing equipment in the workshop.

Exhaust extraction at source

The most effective method of capturing and removing of vehicle exhaust fumes is capture at source. Capturing the vehicle exhaust gases provides a safer and more pleasant working environment.

Extensive experience with vehicle exhaust extraction

After more than 60 years on the market Nederman has built up and established very good relationships with the automotive industry. We develop new products and exhaust removal systems together with leading auto manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, Toyota and many others. We get invaluable input from our partners in the automotive industry to develop, test and evaluate prototypes and systems. Together we develop new solutions for exhaust extraction for a cleaner, safer and more efficient workshop.

Stationary vehicle exhaust extraction systems

Engines are run stationary, when carrying out tests and fault tracing. This is common in vehicle repair shops and testing stations. Key aspects for the stationary extraction systems are; easy handling, good reach and possibility to quickly remove after use. 

Single and/or twin exhaust extractor 

The Nederman single/twin exhaust extractor is ideal for small workshops where an individual solution is required or where an additional extraction point is needed to expand an existing system. A damper can be fitted to reduce noise and unnecessary extraction of air when not in use. 

Exhaust hose reels 

The Nederman exhaust extraction hose reels have a great advantage in that the hoses can be hoisted completely out of the way when not in use. They can be installed for individual fan extraction or connected to ducting with a central fan serving a number of units. In normal use, hose reel solutions are virtually maintenance free. 

Extraction rail with extraction hoses or telescope units - touchless 

These exhaust removal systems are mounted on trolleys sliding on rail and equipped with either extraction hoses or telescopic extraction units. Extraction hose units are available with balancer for keeping the hose raised, and damper for automatic airflow control. The Telescopic exhaust extraction unit is a touchless exhaust removal system, meaning that it extracts the the fumes without being in contact with the exhaust pipe or the car body. This ensures that there is no risk of scraping the vehicle. 

The Touchless system is equipped with a balancer for smooth height adjustment and and an automatic damper. A horizontal arm with a large, efficient exhaust hood is easy and safe to position by means of adjustable joints and release/locking handle at the hood. Extraction units are easy to move, thanks to light-weight material and ball bearing wheels. One extraction unit can serve several work bays. Two units serve cars with twin exhaust pipes.

Track arm 

The Nederman exhaust removal track arm is designed for long reach applications for heavy vehicles where there are limited options for installing extraction equipment. The trackarm covers up to 76 m2 (818 ft²).

Vehicles in motion exhaust extraction systems

In many cases there is need also for exhaust extraction from vehicles driving indoors. This is often the case for emergency vehicles, inspection centers, bus garages, and manufacturing facilities, where vehicles are driven off the assembly line. Key features in such a solution are easy connection, automatic and safe disconnection of the nozzle, and in some cases an automatic and safe return of the extraction unit. 

Exhaust rail system 

The exhaust rail systems offers an ergonomic and reliable solution. The trolleys and hoses are moved between the vehicles. The number of trolleys required is determined by the specific application. 

Exhaust removal system with manual return 

The extraction unit is returned by hand or by using gravity. The system is used for drive-through applications for one vehicle only. Exhaust rail system with motorised return A range of motorised systems for one or several suction units. Applications for only one vehicle at the time is based on a straight rail with motorised return of the suction unit. for example in a car inspection center. Applications for several vehicles at the same time are based on a straight suction rail combined with separate rail for return of the suction unit, for example in vehicle assembly plants. The systems extract exhaust fumes continuously, travel along with the vehicle and are robust and very durable. 

The motorised return system uses an electric motor to drive the extraction unit. Different levels of automation can be configured from manual switch operated up to complete automatic control.
