Removing exhaust from indoors is important for any auto shop, fire station, or car inspection facility. Vehicle exhaust extraction systems help to make sure that exhaust is removed safely and effectively. In every good extraction system, there is a source capturing exhaust nozzle that helps to transfer hot exhaust from the tailpipe into an exhaust hose and out of the building.
Whether you’re shopping for a new vehicle exhaust extraction system or replacing an old exhaust hose tailpipe adapter, you’ll benefit from a tight source capture.
Using clamps, vice grips, locking hand dampers, or a hook and chain, all you have to do is connect your hose and your tailpipe. This small piece of rubber and galvanized stainless steel is simple to use in any indoor docking station.
You may have heard of an exhaust nozzle called a tailpipe adapter. These can be used interchangeably to describe a piece that connects your tailpipe to an exhaust hose. On Fume-A-Vent, you’ll find that we carry three different types of tailpipe adapters, which have been used in many different applications with cars, snowmobiles, trains, and more.
Our high temperature TPA-03-0404 exhaust hose tailpipe adapter is our most popular because it’s easy to connect and disconnect. The 4" rubber hose is connected to metal clamps that can be used to clip and unclip the exhaust hose to the tailpipe.
In some special applications, like when working on a diesel truck, you may need a vertical exhaust hose tailpipe adapter. These are made particularly for vertical exhaust tailpipes and range from 4" to 8".
For mechanics or auto body shops that work with both horizontal and vertical exhaust hose tailpipes, we also carry dual purpose adapters that you can swap between the two. Whether you’re working on a tractor or a town car, a dual purpose adapter will change with your needs.
