Flextraction has announced that most of its self-supporting hood positioning devices (HPDs), ideal for capturing and extracting industrial dusts and fumes, are now certified as Atex compliant.

The Atex-compliant devices include the Flextractor HPD, the Extended HPD, the Mini HPD and the Flextender HPD.

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 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 happen in normal operations.

Features of the company’s 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 270deg working radius and a new 360deg rotating swivel hood enabling more accurate hood positioning, while quick-release clips are used to attach a range of flexible hoses including Atex-certified hoses.

Flextractor 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 of 8m.

The wall- or bench-mounted Mini HPD is available in three standard diameters – 75mm, 100mm and 125mm – with either a 1m or 1.5m reach.

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