New HPDs are ATEX compliant for safer fume and dust extraction

Most of the new range of totally self supporting Hood Positioning Devices (HPD), including the Articulated HPD, Extended HPD, Mini HPD and Telescopic HPD from flextraction Ltd, supplier and manufacturer of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) products are now available certified as ATEX compliant.

These HPDs all incorporate new mounting brackets, hoods and hoses for the capture and extraction of industrial dusts and fumes including hazardous and corrosive fumes at the point of source in surface grinding, welding, product tipping and drum filling, as well as food processing and all manufacturing applications, where dust and fumes are emitted.

Being ATEX compliant means that products are coated with an anti-static paint so that they can be used in hazardous area zones, which are based on the frequency and duration of where there can be an occurrence of an explosive atmosphere in which a mixture of air with dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapour, mist or combustible dust is likely to occasionally occur in normal operations. Features of these HPDs include, a rear casing that is fully enclosed giving an improved aesthetic appearance and protection against dirt ingress, a rear boom extension giving a 270° working radius and a new 360° rotating swivel hood enabling more accurate hood positioning, whilst quick release clips are used to attach a range of flexible hoses, including ATEX certified hoses.

Articulated HPDs are suitable for standard wall or stanchion mounting, as well as upward and downward swivel, joist and ceiling mountings and are available in five standard lengths between 1.5m and 4m.

The Extended HPD provides the user with the additional option of a longer reach up to a maximum 8m. The wall or bench mounted mini HPD is available in three standard diameters – 75mm, 100mm and 125mm with either a 1m or 1.5 m reach.

A range of hoods is available in a wide variety of designs including bell mouth, flare, fish tail, flat screen and custom designed.
