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.
To best serve his application, the customer adapted some aspects of the standard unit.
7-second brag: Customization of our units is made possible due to modular design and selection of appropriate components.
In the process of trying out our fume extractor, the customer created more room on individual bench tops as well as more space for expansion and operational changes.

The shop’s old dust collector took up roughly twice as many cubic feet of bench area as the actual buffing tool.
With our unit, the customer was able to move fume extraction under the workbench, as you can see in the photo to the right.
Because the customer felt flexible arms with a smaller radius were more appropriate for his needs, he added metal adapters to each standard arm so that smaller hoses could be
He noted that the unit continued to supply sufficient airflow, typically called CFM or cubic-feet-per-minute, for his application.
The Model 300’s powerful motor ensures that debris from the buffing wheels is moved away from the operator and into filters before it can spread throughout the shop.
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.
