Clamp together ducting is applicable to virtually every dust collection system from wood to paper to chemical. And it is also used in fume and oil mist collection, and abrasive applications. Our KB Duct brand Standard Clamp Together/Quick Clamp Duct branches are fabricated from 18-gauge material, and can be fabricated in up to 10-gauge. Also, elbows, straight duct and fittings can be fabricated up to 10-gauge (depending on diameter) for use in such applications as sand, coal or other abrasive applications.
A wide variety of gasket materials, coupled with stainless steel material, makes it possible for our KB Duct brand Clamp Together ducting to address even the harshest applications. The standard n-butyl rubber gasket works well for 95% of all applications, but the gasket is also available in FDA silicone, which is appropriate for some food AND hi-temp applications. Viton and Gore-Tex gasket materials address the balance of applications where standard rubbers will be ‘eaten’ away.
Clamp-together ducting should not be used on heavy concentrations of liquid or for conveyance of dust under positive pressures. Such applications should use KB Duct flanged duct with a gasket.
