Nordfab dust collection duct has been used in a full range of industrial applications, and under various negative static pressures. In its simplest form, a dust collection system can be described as similar to a vacuum. Dust collection ducting acts as the hose that draws dust away from the extraction point, and the dust collector acts as the vacuum filtering dust.
Dust collection duct falls into two major categories — flexible hose duct and hard, fixed duct.
Flexible Hose Duct
A flexible hose is a rubber or plastic hose with a metal grounding helix that must be grounded at each end to prevent static electricity from building up and generating sparks. A duct hose is only appropriate for short runs, like machine connections because it has a rough interior and a floppy-like nature that causes significant static pressure loss. Static pressure loss requires higher energy usage and can result in poor system performance.
Hard, Fixed Duct
Hard, fixed dust collection dust is often made of plastic or metal — galvanized, stainless steel, etc. based on application. All-metal construction is used in almost all industrial and commercial applications because it reduces the change of static electricity build-up. The smooth rigid interior of metal ducting reduces pressure loss, even over long runs.
Nordfab dust collector ducting minimizes air resistance, withstands high air pressure, and reduces static pressure loss, which is why it's an excellent choice for material handling applications. Nordfab dust collector pipe is used in many industries to convey industrial dust, fumes, smoke, and more. More on Dust Collector Pipe.
