  • Exhaust Fans
    Fans for air make up and exhaust are quite often a difficult product to find when designing a simple ducted local exhaust system. Here we offer a variety of "LEV" (Local Exhaust & Ventilation) fans specifically designed to meet the demands of such systems. These Fans are able to handle specific applications such as: - Corrosive Fumes - Abrasive Dusts - Proper Flow and Static Pressure for a particular application.

    Please feel free to contact one of our System Design Technicians for help in selecting the right fan for your application.
    Extraction Arms
    Capture at Source Extraction Arms are used to capture airborne contaminants before the contaminants have a chance to reach the workers' breathing space.

    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.

    For more info, please see the products and associated documentation listed below.

    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.

    Lev-Co offers a complete line of Portable Vehicle Exhaust solutions for all makes and models of engines and equipment.

    The best way to protect mechanics and garage employees from harmful gases released from automotive vehicles such as cars & trucks is CAPTURE AT SOURCE. This means directly at the tailpipe.

    This process involves 3 steps:
  • 1. Capture of the gases at source through suction nozzles
  • 2. Transporting the gases through exhaust hoses to an exhaust fan
  • 3. Transport the gases to atmosphere.

    Below is a list of the information that needs to be gathered prior to selecting the appropriate VEHICLE EXHAUST ventilation system:
  • 1 – Max Engine HP
  • 2 – Max RPM engines to be run at:
  • 3 – Engine being run A - under load? or B - at idle?
  • 4 – Diameter of smallest and largest tailpipes?
  • 5 – Configuration of tailpipes? (EG: are they exposed, behind a grill, overhead stack, under carriage, etc…)
  • 6 – Voltage and Amperage available
  • 7 – Fixed or Portable system
