Introduction to flexible air duct

Flexible ducts are an integral part of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems that facilitate the distribution of conditioned air throughout a building. Unlike rigid duct systems, flexible ducts offer advantages such as ease of installation, adaptability to tight spaces, and reduced labor costs.

Aluminum flexible ducts are specially produced for medium and low voltage heating, cooling, ventilation, exhaust and air conditioning systems. Aluminum hose is ideal for transporting over ambient industrial air and fumes. The metallic silver lightweight hose is made from a single layer of spirally corrugated aluminum alloy. The walls of the flexible duct are constructed with durable four-ply finished seams that are folded flat and crimped for improved bonding and strength.

The key function of aluminum strips in flexible air ducts

Flexible aluminum tube materials are made from a special aluminum foil alloy that prevents corrosion and metal fatigue. Machine manufacturing creates a continuous lock seam that allows pipes to be pulled apart, compressed, bent and re-bent without creating leaks. It can be used for concealed ventilation without the need for elbows.

Flexible duct consists of a core, insulation and outer shell, with aluminum tape providing reinforcement and support to maintain its shape.

Flexible duct usually consists of a layer of insulation surrounded by a flexible outer shell, usually made of aluminum foil or polyester. Aluminum strips are embedded within this casing or wrapped at intervals around the pipe to provide support.

It is made by laminating a foil to a Mylar film, or a layer of Mylar to a metallized Mylar film on a spiral. Insulated versions are also available with fiberglass covered aluminum foil or polyester outer sheathing. Also available in perforated configurations, ideal for reducing airborne noise in low pressure and domestic air conditioning systems.

Specifically designed to provide an effective and maintenance-free service life under normal conditions when properly installed. Easy to transport, use and install. Pay special attention to flexible ducts, ensuring that the ducts are fully extended and that the bends must have sufficient radii to prevent corrugations from creating excessive resistance to airflow.

Advantages of aluminum strips in flexible air ducts

Aluminum strip offers several advantages over alternative materials:

Aluminum strip was chosen for its lightweight, corrosion-resistant and malleable properties. It can be easily formed and bent into the desired shape without losing its strength or durability. Additionally, aluminum is non-reactive, making it suitable for HVAC systems that may be exposed to various chemicals or moisture.
