FX2 Exhaust Snorkel Models

The ORIGINAL model is a robust and reliable all-around articulating arm for general applications and fumes, dust, where there is little to no electrical discharges or attack by aggressive chemicals. The extraction arm is shown fitted with a multi-purpose transparent hood.

The ESD/EX model is designed for use in electronic environments where there is a risk of electrostatic discharges. Following risk assessment, the ESD/EX can also be used for certain applications in explosive environments. The extraction arm is made of conductive materials, eliminating the risk of static electricity and sparks. The hood is made of anodized metal.

The CHEM model has profiles made of double anodized aluminum. The articulating arm is ideal for fume extraction in aggressive environments where corrosion resistance must be assured. The extraction arm shown here is fitted with a painted, corrosion-resistant metal hood.


The two outermost articulating joints in the arm can rotate and swivel through 360°. This provides unique directional flexibility and makes it possible to position the hood precisely where needed. Once positioned, the hood can be locked in place using two friction devices in the articulating arm joints.
