Flextraction Ltd, the Melton Mowbray, supplier and manufacturer of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) products for industrial dust, fume and oil mist extraction and sole UK representative for Swedish fume extraction equipment manufacturer Fumex AB, has a range of vehicle exhaust and welding fume extraction systems utilising a rail system for the automotive repair and manufacturing industries.

The APS aluminium rail system mounted on telescopic ceiling and wall brackets is a flexible solution for the extraction of exhaust fumes from moving vehicles that can be connected to a separate fan or a central exhaust system. Features of this system include the aluminium rail also acting as the suction duct with only one rubber seal placed on top of the duct, whilst the design of the trolley produces one of the lowest pressure drops for this type of system, thereby producing low running costs.

The APS system can be supplied with an automatic trolley return control and other devices for automatic control and when used alongside a production line to extract welding fumes, the rail can be supplied with one or more trolleys equipped with Fumex R or RX extraction arms equipped with a 360° swivel.

Heat resistant rubberised fabric EPDM/Polyester hoses are supplied in standard lengths of 5m in diameters of 75, 100, 125 and 150mm. Additional sections are also available are in 2.5 m lengths. The hoses are supported by a balance.

The AFS Hose rail is a simpler system with a tiltable supporting steel rail to achieve automatic return of the trolley and it has a 160mm diameter hose suspended underneath connected to a separate fan or a central exhaust system. The vertical suction hose is available in 100, 125 and 150mm diameters and in the same lengths as the APS System.

A range of different nozzles are available for both welding and for vehicle exhaust fumes including oval connections for both single and double exhausts, pneumatic rubber nozzles and high mounted exhaust pipes.
