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. 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.

Nordfab Ducting’s system for sealing ductwork to prevent leakage includes: welded seam Straight Duct, Duct End Gaskets, Slip Duct O-rings, and Oil Mist Drains where needed.

The use of Nordfab’s Oil Mist system eliminates:

  • Cost of weld labor to fully weld each seam
  • Cost of highly skilled workers to install ductwork
  • Time needed for welding seams
  • Gooey caulks or sealants

One more benefit — Quick-Fit leak-free components can be taken apart and reconfigured to accommodate machinery moves and floor plan changes.
