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 can assemble a small Extraction Booth in two days, 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.

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 33.5.5. 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 more.

See product spec sheets for dimensions

The control panel may be placed on any 40” booth panel located at least 3 feet from the entry door. Space within 3 feet of the entry door opening is classified as 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.

Installation Considerations

Electrical

  • A licensed electrician is required for installation of each Extraction Booth System.
  • Licensed electrician services including connection to building power supply is not included in the Extraction Booth or assembly unless specifically stated.
  • A single, 208V, single-phase 20-amp circuit is all that is needed to power the Extraction Booth System.
  • Conduit between the Control Panel and individual components is not supplied. Conduit inside the Extraction Booth System and within 5 feet of the door must be rated for used in explosive atmospheres.

Mechanical

  • Customers are encouraged to use the services of a mechanical engineer to design the air supply and exhaust ducting and equipment suitable for their installations. A mechanical contractor will be required to install exhaust duct, roof penetrations, roof caps, and to connect the Extraction Booth exhaust system to the exhaust duct.
  • Mechanical contractor services, including installation of duct-work, is not included in the Extraction Booth or assembly agreement unless specifically stated.
  • The HVAC system in which the Extraction Booth is installed should be capable of supplying at least 500 cubic feet per minute with a static pressure load of 0.5” under normal operating conditions and 1,300 CFM with a static pressure load of 0.5” when hazardous conditions are detected. Typically, only the base flow rate air is heated or cooled.

Fire Suppression

  • Fire suppression systems are not included as a standard part of the Extraction Booth. A standalone dry-powder fire suppression system is available for all booth models and can easily be integrated into your Extraction Room.
  • If your space already has a wet-sprinkler system it is often more cost-effective to tap into that system for your Extraction Booth.
