Adaptations by customer no problem for our powerful, portable, space-saving fume extractor

Not long ago, Marie Haverstock had an inquiry about fume extraction for a large buffing application.

Marie sent the customer a Dual Arm Model 300 Portable Fume Extractor Model # SS-300-FSD demo unit.

The customer liked his – and our – solution so much that he ordered over a dozen Dual Arm Model 300 Portable Fume Extractors, plus another for a solvent fumes application.
