Extraction arms for capturing odors, gas and fumes for a clean and safe working environments in laboratories and electronics industries.

What are some of the health risks associated with dust, fumes or gas exposure?

This depends on the type and degree of exposure. Applications like laboratories and more may produce unhealthy gases and particles which have to be extracted. What was once considered fully acceptable is now prohibited; a development that is likely to continue, with increasingly strict regulations on dust and fume exposure in the future. Substances and processes once thought of as non-carcinogenic have since been reclassified as carcinogenic.

Odor and fume extraction for every application

Nederman BenchTop FX2 Extraction arms are suitable for applications where small, flexible and easy-to-use arms are required to eliminate smoke, fumes or dust. Extraction arms are installed in laboratories to extract contaminants, such as solvents, or to evacuate airborne contaminants generated during operations. In the soldering process, lead-tin solder alloy is often used as filler metal. Lead oxide fumes are generated when heated. According to OSHA, people exposed to lead oxide fumes can develop symptoms such as loss of appetite, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, headaches, abdominal cramps, nervousness, or insomnia. Nederman BenchTop arms are designed to provide safe and clean working environments, reducing the health risks.

Extraction arm designed for optimal efficiency and low noise

Computerized simulations were used in the development of Nederman BenchTop products to create arms with optimal air flow and particle transportation properties. The unique design allows an unobstructed airflow and high efficiency using smaller and less energy consuming fans. Another user benefit is the low noise level. Depending on the air flow, the noise level is at least 5dB lower than other extraction arms in the market.   

  • Effective fume and dust extraction
  • Low noise level and high energy efficiency
  • Stable positioning with easy maneuverability
  • Wide range available
  • Aesthetic design
  • Complete freedom when planning installation
  • Maximum installation flexibility

Unique maneuverability

The two outermost joints in the arm can rotate and swivel through 360°. This provides unequalled, omni-directional flexibility and makes it possible to position the hood exactly where it's needed the most. Once correctly positioned, the hood can be locked in place using two friction devices in the arm joints. 

A full product range

Nederman BenchTop FX2 arms, for example, (FX2 product range) are perfect for applications where small, flexible and easy-to-use arms are required to eliminate odour, gas, smoke fumes, dust and particles. They are available in three different models to cover a wide spectrum of needs. The original model is for general applications where there is little risk of electrical discharges or corrosive contaminants. The ESD/EX model suits to applications where static electricity and sparks much be avoided. The CHEM model is ideal for extracting corrosive contaminants.

Nederman FX2 arms are supplied with a mini hood as standard – no extra extraction nozzle is required. The mini hood is also a universal interface for connecting to other hoods: the ergonomically designed combi hood, the dome hood, the flange hood and the metal hood. All of them can be attached directly to the mini hood, irrespective of arm size.

Nederman FX2 arms are available in self-assembly kits (Bench Top Extraction Kits), which include a fan, a filter, a fan speed controller, hoses, table bracket and connectors. No duct is needed. These kits provide a quick and convenient solution for creating a fume-free workplace.
