Leakage of oil mists and cutting fluids from ducting can cause health hazards and safety risks for workers, including respiratory ailments and increased risks of accidents.
Nordfab Ducting offers a three part system for sealing ductwork to prevent leakage: Leak-free Gaskets, Leak-free O-rings, and Epoxy Caulking. The combination of these Oil Mist System components with Nordfab’s Duct Pipe, which features solid welded seams, providing excellent leakage protection, in comparison to lockform seams which allow air to leak (view movie showing comparison), .
Locations where sealed ducting may be advisable can include: steel mills, rolling mills, rubber and plastic manufacturing facilities, hardening and heat treating facilities, and metalwork processes such as turning, cutting, milling, grinding, drilling.
And the use of Nordfab’s Oil Mist system eliminates:
- Cost of weld labor to fully weld each duct seam
- Cost of highly skilled workers to install ductwork
- Time needed for welding seams
- Gooey caulks or sealants
One more benefit — Quick-Fit® (QF®) leak-free components can be taken apart and reconfigured to accommodate machinery moves and floor plan changes. View our QFS Sealed Ducting

*Due to variables beyond our control, Nordfab Ducting cannot guarantee a leak proof system in all installations, even when using the Epoxy caulk & “leak free” gaskets. Some of the variables that impact this include: the craftsmanship of the duct installation, the chemicals within the duct, and the expertise of the designer.
