Installation Guidelines

Installation Guidelines

Installation and assembly of your HAL Extraction Booth is simple and straight-forward. It's designed to fit into most spaces and get your extraction process up and running as quickly as possible.

Setup

HAL Extraction Booth Systems are shipped for easy on-site construction. You will need a forklift to unload the crate upon delivery. The largest panels measure 40″ x 120″ x 3″. If you can get that panel into your space, you should be able to set up an Extraction Booth System.

A crew of two or three can assemble a small Extraction Booth in 12-16 hours, ready for connection to mechanical and electrical systems. There is no need for large overhead freight doors or demolition to get the system in place. Assembly time may vary based on the size unit purchased.

EXTRACTION BOOTH PLACEMENT

The Extraction Booth System is assembled from the exterior, so space for the worker is required between the exterior wall of the Extraction Booth System and walls of the building.

The Extraction Booth shall be installed a minimum distance of 3 feet from all operations. The Extraction Booth can be installed within 3 feet from all operations if it is separated by a partition, wall, or floor/ceiling assembly with a minimum fire resistance a 1-hr as defined in NFPA 33 (2018) 5.5. Multiple connected booths shall not be considered other operations. One or two of the walls of the extraction room structure may be moved into place against a wall of the building provided the building wall carries a fire rating of one hour or greater.

The control panel may be placed on any 40” booth panel located at least 3 feet from the entry door or Utility Penetration Plate. The space within 3 feet of the entry door opening, and the Utility Penetration Plate, is a Class I, Division 2 hazardous location. Only electrical equipment rated for Class I, Division 2 locations can be located within this barrier.

The Extraction Booth is designed for indoor use only. The components are not designed for exposure to weather.

SHIPPING AND RECEIPT

The Extraction Booth structure and fan is shipped in one or two crates, depending on the Model.

A forklift is required for unloading of the crate(s) at delivery. HAL Extraction can also coordinate Call-Before-Delivery service along with your freight delivery.

Electrical

Conduit between the Control Panel and individual components is not supplied. Conduit inside the Extraction Booth System and within 3 feet of the door and Utility Penetration Plate must be rated for used in hazardous locations.
Licensed electrician services, including connection to building power supply, is not included in the HAL Extraction Booth or assembly unless specifically stated.
A single-phase 208VAC circuit is all that is needed to power the Extraction Booth System (including all of its components).
A licensed electrician is required to complete the installation of each Extraction Booth System.

MECHANICAL

Customers are encouraged to use the services of a mechanical engineer to design the air supply and exhaust ducting, as well as equipment suitable for the installation. A mechanical contractor will be required to install exhaust ducting on the Extraction Booth system, make roof penetrations, and install roof caps.
Mechanical contractor services, including installation and supply of duct-work, is not included in the Extraction Booth or assembly agreement unless specifically stated.
The HVAC system installed on the Extraction Booth should be capable of supplying the minimum air flow rates, noted on each model's cut sheet and installation manual. Typically, only the base flow rate air is heated or cooled, if at all.

FIRE SUPPRESSION

Fire suppression systems are not included in the retail price of the HAL Extraction Booth. A standalone powder fire suppression system is available for all booth models and can easily be integrated into your Extraction Booth.
If your space already has a water based sprinkler system, it is often more cost-effective to tap into that system for your Extraction Booth.
