Boom are designed to increase the area of reach for source capture products such as the Maxair self supporting fume arms and handle exhaust equipment such as MAXIREEL hose reels or MAXIDROP hose drops.
Extension boom help reaching points which are distant from a wall or other mounting areas. Extension boom can also be use to support items such as welding wire feeders or to undersling hoses or cables in conjunction with their primary function. The swivel section of the extension booms is made of rolled steel pipe. The top and bottom of the pipe is adapted to adapt a MAXIDRIVE fan or flanged duct connection. The extension beams are manufactured of heavy gauge steel tubing with a bearing swivel. The spiral ducting mounted along the beam has a diameter of 6” [150 mm] or 8” [200 mm]. Standard units are supplied with brackets for mounting fume arms or hose drops. Double pivot type extension booms are divided by a bearing hinge which allows the user to reach back under the extension boom.
Available in 6’’ and 8’’ diameters, the MAXIREACH is perfectly designed to fold, bend or move in multiple horizontal directions. The boom base is made of solid painted steel pipe with flanges that can be adapted with A MAXIDRIVE exhaust fan, or connected to a main exhaust manifold. Ease of movement is ensured by industrial grade bushings and adjustable pressure friction disks.
The lateral pull rod from the boom base to the end of the first section ensures horizontal stability.
The double-pivot model enables a whole range of applications that can substantially improve productivity. The configuration of double-pivot joints provides coverage for all angles and the entire work surface easily without any dead spots.
The MAXIREACH is available in standard lengths up to 20’ but AQC also offers customized diameters up to 16″ in diameter and lengths up to 35’
Maxireach extension booms are made of steel with single or double pivot joint(s). Friction disks at the joints ensure that no steel parts rub against each other causing premature wear. The second pivot works on a ball bearing assembly. The spiral ducting in 6” [160 mm] or 8” [200 mm] mounted on saddles minimizes static pressure and air pressure loss. Different lengths up to 20’ [6,2 m] are available. The support rod attached between the boom base and rod bracket ensures proper leveling of Maxireach boom. Flexible hoses (250 ºF or 120 ºC) at joints are clamped to spiral ducting. Higher temperature tolerance flexible hoses are available. End of boom is equipped with a support bracket for the Maxair fume arm or Maxidrop hose drop systems for vehicle fume exhaust. A custom support bracket can be installed at the end of the single pivot boom for Maxireel exhaust hose reel.
