Educational institutions equip people with the skills they will need to properly repair and maintain all vehicles on the road. As early as high school, students have the opportunity to begin their education and hands on training with internal combustion engine vehicles. This education can possibly continue through vo-tech schools, colleges and universities. Students learn about important operations, and should be trained to practice proper safety procedures.
It cannot go unnoticed that these students can potentially be exposed to serious health and safety risks if necessary precautions are not taken. Many specialized agencies including the World Health Organization (WHO) have long warned about the dangers of internal combustion engine exhaust. Engines running indoors can lead to serious health issues including cancer and exposure to Carbon Monoxide (CO), a.k.a. “the silent killer”.
Therefore, Plymovent has developed multiple solutions that can help educational institutions keep our future mechanics as well as trainers safe and healthy.
A plug-and-play mobile unit that can be connected directly to the vehicle or apparatus exhaust pipe. The fan of the FumeCaddie will remove the fumes from the source and extract them from the building. This vehicle exhaust extraction option is easy to use, store and operate in any size workshop and does not need an adapter to do its job.
The FE hose drop is the right choice if you need exhaust extraction but have limited space. With the extraction hose connected direct either to the ductwork or a fan (in the case of the FEF), you have an easy but efficient system in use.
The hose is very lightweight and easy to handle. The balancer supports you in this operation and keeps the hose in position when locked. When you are ready, the hose is easy to store on the wall hose storage-holder.
We offer several hose reels including the Spring-Operated hose reel (SER) and the Motorized Hose Reel (MHR). The Spring-Operated hose reel retracts the hose with a spring whereas the Motorized Hose Reel retracts the hose with an eclectic motor. Both hose reels should be used during normal to light working activities in small to medium-sized training facilities. When students practice heavier applications in larger areas, Plymovent offers the Motorized Hose Reel (MER) and the Motorized Spring-Assisted hose reel (MSHR). Both reels retract the hose with an electric motor but the Motorized Spring-Assisted hose reel gets additional help from a spring. Many of our hose reels may be mounted on a boom or rail to increase reach.
We provide a wide range of exhaust hoses with a variety of diameters and temperature ratings. Plymovent offers several hoses that are suitable for any public works vehicle. Depending on your application, you can choose between a diverse list of hoses for your garage including flexible hoses that are resistant to chemicals or hoses that have additional protection such as flame-retardant walls. Our experts will help you specify the proper exhaust hose for your garage.
Plymovent offers a wide range of nozzles that are designed for both stationary and moving vehicles. We offer nozzles that can be positioned either horizontally or vertically on all commonly used exhaust pipes and are extremely user-friendly. There is a nozzle available for any temperature application.
As you examine a facility to determine the most effective way to capture and extract dangerous exhaust, you can rely on Plymovent experts to share their experience gained from installing thousands of systems in a wide range of facilities.
Plymovent and our distribution network have the experience and knowledge to help you work through these questions and offer a solution for any application. We invite you to contact Plymovent and our authorized distributors with any questions you have.
