Heavy-Duty Clamp-Together Ducting

Nordfab Ducting has expanded its Quick-Fit (QF) clamp-together ducting to include products constructed of 14 gauge galvanized steel. The new product line, XD Ducting, features solid welded seams and heavier gauge construction and is designed for applications where:

  • Material conveyed in the dust collection or material handling system is highly abrasive
  • Areas in the ducting line where excessive wear occurs
  • Applications where 14 gauge ducting has been or should be specified.

Ducting with QF ends allows simple installation without special tools, rivets, screws or welding. "The rolled edges, in conjunction with the QF Clamp, allow quick connections, reducing installation and downtime by more than 45% in comparison to flanged duct installations," said a company spokesperson. QF clamp-together duct is quickly dismantled and reinstalled - advantageous for quick cleanouts when conveying material that tends to clog the ductwork, when relocating machinery or when replacing damaged duct.

"XD Duct components have solid welded seams, eliminating leakage and improving the energy efficiency of the dust collection system," said the spokesperson. "Traditional heavy gauge duct is seamed via rivets or lock-form, which do not provide a good seal."

XD Duct with QF ends is available in 7" to 24" diameters. Nordfab can also provide 14 gauge duct with flanged ends in sizes up to 48". Nordfab's ducting may be used for most dust, mist and fume collection applications.
