QFS Sealed Duct for Mist Applications

 Reduce Oil Mist Health Hazards & Safety Risks 

machining oil mistLeakage of oil mists and cutting fluids from machinery and ductwork can cause health hazards and safety risks for workers, including respiratory ailments and increased risks of accidents. Nearly all machining operations create oil mist, the aerosol formed when oil is used for cooling or lubricating during the machining of metal or plastic components. Proper ventilation is required to prevent oil mists from fouling equipment, products, and the working environment.

Nordfab Ducting offers a three part system for sealing ductwork to prevent leakage: QFS Gaskets, QFS O-rings, and QFS Sealant. The combination of these Oil Mist System components with Nordfab’s Duct, which features solid welded seams, provide excellent leakage protection. Learn more about our QFS Sealed Duct solution which features our new gasket design.

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.

Benefits of QFS Sealed Ducting

  • 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) sealed components can be taken apart and reconfigured to accommodate machinery moves and floor plan changes.

*Due to variables beyond our control, Nordfab Ducting cannot guarantee a leak proof system in all installations, even when using the QFS sealant & “leak free” QFS 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.
