Flextraction Ltd has released a brand new range of self supporting Hood Positioning Device (HPD). The supplier and manufacturer of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) products has launched a line which is now available certified as ATEX compliant.
Those devices among the range include the Flextractor HPD, Extended HPD, Mini HPD and Flextender HPD. 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. They also cater for food processing and all manufacturing applications, in which dust and fumes are emitted.
ATEX compliance translates into products coated with anti-static paint so that they can be used in hazardous area zones. Features of the HPD’s include a rear casing that is fully enclosed giving a better appearance whilst also protecting the devices from dirt, 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.
Those devices within the latest HPD range are suitable for standard wall or stanchion mounting, as well as upward and downward swivel, joist and ceiling mountings. They are also available in five standard lengths between 1.5m and 4m. Meanwhile, the wall or bench mounted mini HPD is available in three standard diameters; 75mm, 100mm and 125mm with a reach of 1m or 1.5m.
Users can choose between various hood types, from bell mouth to custom design. Similar flexibility is offered by the extended HPD which provides users with a longer reach option extending to a maximum of 8m.
