Advantages Over Traditional Spiral or Flanged Duct Systems
Across the globe, thousands of manufacturers replace standard flanged ducting with Nordfab Quick-Fit (Q-F) clamp-together ducting. The primary reasons they cite for upgrading their systems to Q-F are:
Change your system quickly, no matter how complex
- Q-F installs in about half the time of flanged ducting, reducing downtime for installation, floor plan changes and maintenance.
- Q-F allows manufacturers to make changes to their ducting systems quickly, often using their regular plant maintenance workers.
- Clogs are no problem with Q-F. First, the smooth interior and laser-welded seams reduce snags. Also, because all parts clamp-together, no point in the system is more than five feet from a tool-free access point.
- In abrasive applications, wear-points can be replaced in seconds, without tools. If these changes are above the ground, they can typically be done with a man-lift rather than a crane.
More than 98 percent of manufacturing facilities that make the switch to Q-F NEVER go back to using spiral or flanged ducting for dust, mist, smoke and fume collection.
Making the switch to Q-F is fast and easy.
- We make flange and machine adapters that will attach to any dust collector or machine. Simply provide us with the outer and inner diameters and any bolt-hole patterns and we will provide an adapter.
- If you are attaching to the end of a duct run, we can provide an adapter that will mount to your existing ductwork. If you need to connect to a flange, simply provide us the outer and inner diameters and a bolt hole pattern. If no flange is involved, we can provide an adapter that can be tec screwed, riveted or welded to your existing duct.
- If you need to connect Q-F to any point along an existing duct run, supply us with diameter of the existing duct as well as the size of the Q-F duct you want to connect and we can provide an in-cut or boot. To attach this part, cut an oval hole in your existing ductwork the size of the hole in the in-cut we provide. Place a bead of caulk around the hole for better sealing, and screw, weld, rivet or strap the in-cut into place.
Once you make the first connection, you will never go back to standard spiral or flange ducting.
