1. What is Covid 19?
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
2. What are the Covid-19 health concerns around aerosol spread?
Scientists and researchers are continually gathering new evidence about this disease, including routes of transmission. New data suggests that it is possible for COVID-19 to spread through the air among people who are in enclosed, crowded spaces with poor ventilation for a prolonged period of time. Factors contributing to the transmission may include activities that cause heavy breathing, such as singing, dancing, or exercise, especially without precautions such as wearing a mask or keeping a physical distance. However, close, person-to-person contact with an infected person before they show symptoms remains the most common method of transmission.
3. Can mechanical air filtration systems make indoor spaces safe from Covid-19?
If you are in a room that can’t get enough outside air for dilution, consider an air cleaner, also commonly called air purifiers. These machines remove particles from the air, usually using a filter made of tightly woven fibers. They can capture particles containing bacteria and viruses and can help reduce disease transmission.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says that air cleaners can do this for the coronavirus, but not all air cleaners are equal. Before you go out and buy one, there are few things to keep in mind.

In light of the WHO's confirmation that there is "emerging evidence" of airborne transmission of Coronavirus Lev-co has put together a series of products that may assist you in designing and procuring solutions that limit the spread of airborne particles such as the coronavirus. In this section you will find equipment that addresses each of these components required in a ventilation system tailored to capture and filter and return air to your facility.
4. What do the health experts say?
The EPA says: " When used properly, air cleaners and HVAC filters can help reduce airborne contaminants including viruses in a building or small space. By itself, air cleaning or filtration is not enough to protect people from exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. When used along with other best practices recommended by CDC and others, filtration can be part of a plan to reduce the potential for airborne transmission of COVID-19 indoors."
5. How do different systems work and what are the practical and health concerns?

1. What are they?
An extraction arm is a Capture or receiving device designed to capture aerosols at the emission point before the contaminants have a chance to reach the workers' breathing space. Typically, it is the 1st and most crucial part of an LEV or Local Exhaust & Ventilation system. NB: NB: Local exhaust ventilation can also be referred to as process ventilation or Industrial Ventilation, or Local Control ventilation.

Available in several different designs:
  • Internally Supported
  • Externally Supported
  • Telescopic
  • Mild or Stainless Steel Construction
  • Lengths: Up to 45'
  • 2.5" to 8" Diameter's Available
Typically the Extraction Arms are connected to a fixed extraction fan, Filter system or dust collector via direct mounting or a "Header Type" duct system.

2. Suitable applications?
3. Will it make my workplace safer?
Yes, but only when systems are designed, installed, and used precisely. Unlike Dilution ventilation, Extraction arms can return significant energy savings and improvements in health and safety. However, the precision at which they must be designed, installed, and used can be complex. Lev-co uses three procedures to determine the design and installation of our extraction arms. These three procedures are OSHA HOC (hierarchy of controls), MOC (management of change), and PSR (pre-start safety review) Lev-co recommends that these three procedures, when appropriate, should be used when selecting extraction arms as a capture method.

Here are links to examples of these three procedures:
OSHA Hierarchy of controls
MOC Management of change sample document
PSR Pre-start Health and Safety review
4. Suitable industries & environments
Extraction arms are essential for maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. In many benchtop applications, such as welding and soldering, where a closed-off isolation chamber is not possible, a point source capture system is needed to keep the constant stream of smoke under control.

Depending on the rate and intensity of production in your facility, the rate of fumes and smoke may rapidly increase workers' risk as a result of the volume of smoke, heat, and consistency of fumes. While some processes require minimal extraction rates, others will need high-intensity extraction capabilities. We ensure that our wide range of configurations will accommodate your specific application.

Below is a full list of processes associated with extraction arms:
  • Welding, Welding Fumes and Soldering
  • Laboratories and Laboratory Fumes
  • Metalworking Fumes
  • Grinding
  • Cutting
  • Oil Mist
  • Painting
  • Polishing
  • Packaging
  • Light Dust

6. What criteria to consider
The configuration of an extraction system depends on many variables. The intensity of your productions process determines the rate of accumulation of fumes, which determines the rate of airflow needed to effectively capture, which then determines the required air : cloth ratio of your filter.

How do you determine a suitable configuration?
  • What contaminant are you extracting?
  • What is the rate of containment accumulation per second?
  • What are the physical limitations/protocols of your facility?
  • How often will it be used?
Things to consider:

  • How large is your facility? (how much reach to you need)
  • How many workers are working with contaminants at any given time?
  • Where are fumes being extracted? (pre-defined locations, or movable workstations)
  • Capacity (How much flow will the extraction arm handle?)
  • Capture velocity (can the extraction accommodate the required capture velocity to capture the aerosol?)
  • Easy to use (How many articulations/joints does the extraction arm have?)
  • Stay in place? (Does the extraction stay in place, how often do the joints need to be tightened?
  • Extension hoods (Do you need a large diameter extension hood, eg 36" diameter?) (Optional)
  • Can the extraction arm withstand the Pressure/abrasion/corrosion/etc?

7. Pros and cons versus other engineering control methods
Pro's:

Remove airborne toxins at source before they enter any worker's breathing zone
Low energy costs (Heat loss, electrical energy)
Allow the use of smaller filtration equipment
Well suited for "on-demand" controls allowing for greater flow at the source, yet lower overall flow
Some extraction arms allow the supporting of items like wire feeders, Compressed air cord reels, and electrical cord reels for increased productivity
Better visibility through the addition of hood-mounted lighting solutions
Optimized hoods, large-diameter receiving hoods, and hose extensions are effective solutions where capture or hood placement is difficult
hood can be rotated 90 degrees (perpendicular to the floor), eliminating shadowing
when used correctly, the operator can visually see the contaminant being safely drawn away from the process
Options of 115 volt means the portable filter units are effortless to install anywhere in a facility

Con's:

Operator needs to be comfortable with the use of the arm to ensure adequate capture
Arms not always available in larger diameters for required capture velocity
Production time lost to place the extraction arm in place
Cannot always reach the point of emission
Worker buy-in is not always achieved due to a lack of fume capture
Fugitive emission released into the workspace
Some extractors are not built to withstand the working environment
poor design can lead to excess capture velocity resulting in extra capture velocity (Shielding gases loss) and air noise.
8. Preventing the spread of airborne fumes and chemicals
Industrial workers are exposed to a variety of health hazards every day. As a result, these workers risk the possibility of becoming sick, ill, and disabled for life. According to a WHO estimate (WHO, 2000), unintentional poisonings led to 300 000 deaths in the year 2000.

It's our mission to diminish that figure, but it only works if the correct equipment is used, and configured correctly. Our team works to make the logistics of those questions as straightforward and coherent as possible, and as such, will work with you to provide you with the best extraction system that fits your worker's needs. From accessibility and usability to reliability and longevity.

You can read more about the risks and preventions of fume extraction below:

OSHA
WHO
9. Effectiveness versus dilution ventilation
The integral flaw with dilution ventilation is the contaminants picked up by the system are not ultimately removed from the air. As a result, dilution ventilation is ineffective against most contaminants produced in industrial processes, such as metal fumes, abrasive dust, vapors, gases, and toxic chemicals. Local exhaust ventilation eliminates these issues through the capture of contaminants near or at the source of the contaminant, not allowing the contaminant to enter the breathing space, or the workplace atmosphere.

To read up more about the benefits of local exhaust ventilation versus dilution ventilation, refer to these links:
CCOHS
Use of local exhaust and dilution ventilation
10. Maintenance costs
The maintenance costs associated with our extraction arms are considerably low. Unlike some companies that construct extraction arms out of plastic and diecast white metal, all structural components of our products are made using mild/stainless steel, or aluminum.

Provided the system is adjusted correctly prior to use, and the hose is configured for your contaminant and application, these extraction arms will provide years of service with minimal maintenance.

Energy Saving:
With the use of a local exhaust ventilation system and capture at source functionality, the maintenance costs for your system will ultimately go down as a result of associated efficiency. With capture at source functionality, the area at which extraction is occurring is far smaller than the area a large duct vent would be pulling from, and as a result, far less energy is needed to complete the extraction, which runs components at lower stress levels, and boosts longevity, and reduces energy bills.
11. Do's and Don'ts
Do's:
  • Use the extraction system for it's applicable contaminant
  • Always refer to the manual before using the system for different contaminant

Don'ts:
  • Don't use the extraction arm for incorrect applications. For example, if your extraction arm is configured for non-flammable contaminants, don't use it for contaminants such as VOCs
12. Installation tips and tricks
Our extraction arms come in a large range of configurations. Including wall mounts, ceiling mounts, bench, and tabletop mounts. With a wide range of accessories, extraction arms can also be mounted to adjustable mounting configurations for wide span and reach.

You can find a list of Extraction Arm accessories here. For more questions about installation options, call our sales office.

8. Pros & Cons versus other engineering control methods
Pros:
  • High volume for larger application
  • Industrial design
  • Modular
  • Single units serve multiple workstations
  • Self-contained
  • covers large range of contaminants


Cons:
  • Fixed position
  • Installation
9. Effectiveness versus dilution ventilation
The integral flaw with dilution ventilation is that the contaminant picked up by the process ultimately stays airborne. Dilution ventilation picks up the contaminant and dilutes it with clean air, but doesn't remove the contaminant from the air until it has spread through the building to the exhaust system. As a result of this, dilution ventilation is not suitable for industrial processes. The contaminants produced in industrial process include toxic fumes, metal dust, oil mist, vapors, and gases.

Local exhaust ventilation is a much more effective extraction process that utilizes methods that capture the contaminant near or at the source of process. This eliminates the possibility of airborne contaminants entering the breathing zone. Rather than invest money into the buildings ventilation system to cope with the contaminant, simply invest in what will remove the risk all together.

To read up more about the benefits of local exhaust ventilation versus dilution ventilation, refer to these links:
CCOHS
Use of local exhaust and dilution ventilation
10. Maintenance costs
Construction:
Our units are build using only raw materials like steel and aluminum. This ensures a long lasting product that won't fail from fatigue of plastic or die-cast elements. We also finish our products in a durable polyurethane finish which designed to cope with harsh environments, reducing the risk of corrosion.

Filters:
Our filter units incorporate a "Vibra-Pulse" filter cleaning system that reduces maintenance costs dramatically when compared to conventional filtration designs. We also offer a HEPA high efficiency after-filter to deliver 99.97% filter efficiency.

Electric Motor:
All of our units incorporate an electric direct-drive motor. Without the use of pulleys or belts, the maintenance associated with the motor is all but non-existent.

1. What is it?
Sometimes the best solution for extracting welding fumes is right on the table. This is generally referred to as a Down Draft Table. The Downdraft Table serves as both a workbench and an air cleaner. A rigid grill supports the product, while an air cleaner below draws smoke and fumes down and away from the worker's breathing zone. A worker can weld, grind, and cut on the surface of the table while dust and fumes get sucked away from breathing air space.
2. Suitable applications
By combining the extraction system with a workbench, downdraft tables are very effective for safe work environments, and space-saving solutions. Soldering, spray-painting, and other benchwork applications are exactly what our downdraft tables are for.
3. Will it make my workplace safer?
Yes, but only when systems are configured, installed, and maintained for the correct use application. The filter selection is paramount to ensuring the reliability, effectiveness, and safety of the unit you use.
4. Suitable industries/environments
Downdraft tables are mainly designed with the idea of a workstation being integrated into the unit, so any application that requires fume extraction from a bench is ideal for a downdraft table. This includes soldering, grinding, spray painting, and welding. For a full list of industries, refer to our Industry solution page
5. Available models & variants
To see a full list of products, check out our catalog below.
6. Criteria to consider
Some important points to consider when purchasing:
  • What is the velocity or the air required to pull the fumes and dust down into the table (Capture Velocity)? (Add up the CFM for all of the inlets that will run at once)
  • What is the velocity at the Table surface required to achieve the appropriate capture velocity (Face velocity)?

8. Preventing the spread of airborne fumes and chemicals
Industrial workers are exposed to a variety of health hazards every day. As a result, these workers risk the possibility of becoming sick, ill, and disabled for life. According to a WHO estimate (WHO, 2000), unintentional poisonings led to 300 000 deaths in the year 2000.

It's our mission to diminish that figure, but it only works if the correct equipment is used, and configured correctly. Our team works to make the logistics of those questions as straightforward and coherent as possible, and as such, will work with you to provide you with the best extraction system that fits your worker's needs. From accessibility and usability to reliability and longevity.

9. Effectiveness versus dilution ventilation
Dilution ventilation is designed with more of a commercial aspect in mind. As oppose to local exhaust ventilation, how dilution ventilation extracts contaminants is by diluting them with fresh air, which requires the contaminants to be airborne before being removed from the building. This means that all airborne contaminants ultimately spread throughout the building until being pushed through the ventilation exhaust system.

Local exhaust ventilation on the other hand captures contaminants at or near the source of the process. This eliminates the possibility of the contaminant becoming airborne in the first place. Eliminating the risk of airborne contaminant means that a buildings HVAC system does not have to filter industrial contaminants, which dilution ventilation is not designed to do. Some industrial contaminants are highly abrasive and corrosive. Rather than investing in the maintenance costs of the building multiple times, invest in the engineering control solution designed to deal with it.

To read up more about the benefits of local exhaust ventilation versus dilution ventilation, refer to these links:

10. Maintenance Costs
Our downdraft tables are all built using only mild and stainless steel, and finished in a very durable polyurethane powder coating, powered by a direct drive electric motor. We follow these requirements to ensure long life and minimal maintenance costs.

Filters:
We offer a selection of several filters, each designed for different workloads. Depending on contaminant, hours of use, and hazards associated with any given contaminant, we have a filter that'll work for your needs. This way you don't need to worry about filters clogging prematurely, which avoids premature failure.

Motors: We use a direct drive motor on all of our extraction systems. Without the use of belts or pulleys in the driveline of the motor, associated maintenance costs are substantially lower, and allow you to get the most use out of your system without service intervals.

1. What is it?
These units are designed to capture airborne contaminants such as oil mist and chemicals, while simultaneously extracting and containing dust and moisture created by the machining process. Our units use filters that are "SELF-DRAINING", which captures moisture, and dust at the same time, and as such, it is very important that the amount of dust being captured by these systems does not exceed more than 5% of the total extracted pollutant. If the dust quantity is kept to a minimum, filter life can be expected between 1 to 5 years depending on the application and runtime.

1. What is it?
Updraft and Overhead hoods, completely or partially enclose the process or contaminant generation point.

For example:

A Complete Enclosure would be a sealed “box” or similar type of configuration where only minimal openings exist and the contaminated air is sucked up and away. The enclosing hood is preferred wherever the process configuration and operation will permit.

A Partial Enclosure would be an “open box” (i.e.: with the lid cut off). An inward flow of air through the enclosure opening will contain the contaminant within the enclosure and prevent its escape into the outside work environment.
If a complete enclosure is not feasible, the partial enclosure should be used to the maximum extent possible.

When diesel engines are started inside a building, toxic air contaminants are emitted into the breathing area. It is well known that continued exposure to these contaminants has been linked to cancer and other serious health disorders.

Fire and EMS facilities, Service Garages, Maintenance Shops, or anywhere that trucks, buses, heavy equipment, or fleets of vehicles are operated are especially vulnerable to these toxic pollutants.

The only proven method requires a "source capture" system, however, a system that pulls 100 percent of the exhaust emissions outside the building, through sealed hose or piping.
