Hakko Discontinues Alsident Fume Extraction Arms; Touts C1571/C1572 Duct Kits

Hakko's Alsident Fume Extraction Arms have been discontinued
American Hakko (Hakko) announced recently the discontinuation of their Alsident Fume Extraction Arms and related parts. These high-quality, specialized arm kits had been released in 2000, but with recent needs for low-cost solutions, interest has diminished.

Hakko is recommending their C1571 FA-430 Fume Extractor Duct Kit - Rectangular Nozzle and C1572 FA-430 Fume Extractor Duct Kit - Round Nozzle Rigid Ducts Kits as replacements for use with users' fume extraction systems. The C1571 and C1572 products were released in 2011 for use with the Hakko FA-430 Fume Extraction System.

The discontinuation, which is effective immediately, includes the following Hakko part numbers:
  • 999-150 – ESD 2" Duct
  • 999-163 – 3" to 2" Reducer
  • 999-164 - Arm
  • 999-165 - Bracket
  • 999-166 – 8" Nozzle (-01 Kit Only)
  • 999-167 – 8.25" Tube (-02 Kit Only)
  • 999-170 – Clear Hood (-03 Kit Only)
  • 999-207-01 – 8" nozzle
  • 999-207-02 - 8.25" tube
  • 999-207-03 - Clear hood
  • 999-636 – 2.5" Hose Clamp, 2-Pack
Please note: Hakko guarantees the availability of replacement parts for products for a period of three years, and consumable parts for a period of five years after their date of discontinuation. After the guarantee periods end, replacement and consumable parts may only be available while supplies last.

Hakko's C1571 and C1572 Duct Kits are the
recommended replacements for the Alsident products
In related news, Hakko is currently running a 30-Year Anniversary "Promo of the Month" for March 2014, that offers two free C1571 or C1572 Duct Kits with the purchase of an FA-430 Fume Extraction System. If you're upgrading your fume extraction capabilities this is a great chance to save almost $300.
