Nordfab QF ductwork is the new standard for concrete dust applications. By eliminating rivets, screws, welds, and flanges, our clamp together ducting allows installations, clean outs, and adjustments to take only a fraction of the time that traditional ducting takes. Nordfab Quick-Fit’s longitudinal seams provide smooth, no hang-up interiors.
A concrete dust collection system consists of a vacuum cleaner, a hose, and a wand. The hose and wand make up the dust collection duct which works by pulling dust away from the machine that is producing it. The dust is then filtered through the vacuum where it returns clean air either back into the building or outside.
Dust collection ductwork is split into two separate categories: flexible hose duct and hard, fixed ductwork. Hard, fixed dust collection ductwork is generally made of plastic, galvanized or stainless steel, depending upon the needs of the application. All-metal construction is used in almost all commercial and industrial applications because it reduces the risks of dangerous static electricity buildup and the smooth rigid interior lessens the chance of static pressure loss, even over long runs.
