Benefits of Using Ductwork in Your Workplace
Table of Contents
A dust collection system is essentially a vacuum cleaner for the environment and air around you. The Ductwork that deals with bad air is the hose that draws dust away from machinery creating pollution. So, what are the main benefits of using a Ductwork system?
Enhanced Air Quality
First and foremost, air quality is a huge factor in why you’d want to use Ductwork. Without an automatic way of filtering out bad air, you’d have to regularly clean in and around your machinery. Using Ductwork ensures large factories or commercial buildings always have clean, fresh air.
These air duct systems focus on picking up any dust, dirt, sand, or other harmful materials that over time can damage your system. Eventually, debris will build up, and if that gets inside the machinery, it can cause corrosion and severely damage your workflow.
Not only is this air harmful to machines, but it can be to humans too. If you have lots of employees or regular customers, they can breathe this air in. Any dirt, moisture, or mold can be very dangerous to inhale, causing buildup and lung problems in the future.
Ductwork Helps Avoiding Hazards
One of the worst things that could happen in a heavy machinery workplace is natural hazards. Fire is of course the most common and can cause detrimental damage to not only your workplace but your business as a whole. Avoiding a fire hazard is crucial, which is where dust collection Ductwork comes in.
Collected dust in air vents eventually leads to clogging, which can produce heat. If this dust gets in any type of heating machinery, it can end up in disaster. One tiny flare or spark, and the whole place can be lit up in flames.
Of course, there are other prevention methods to ducting such as fire dampers, but more important is first-hand protection to make sure dust never builds up in the first place. This can save money in the long run, therefore preventing paying for new equipment.
Finally, it’s super easy to install. Nordfab’s QF Ductwork methods in particular have a very simple way of fitting, by clipping together ducting systems. They can be reconfigured easily, by unclipping and moving around to your requirements. This makes them very easy to clean, and you won’t have to throw any parts away which didn’t fit with your original configuration.
With any of the Quick-Fit® products, each section has a rolled edge that can be joined with a tool-free clip. Longer runs work flawlessly, with zero pressure loss. This is because Nordfab’s systems align perfectly, so you’ll never have to worry about stray materials.
An underrated benefit of ducting that people don’t talk about often is the comfort it brings to homes, workshops, and commercial buildings. Sealing and insulating ducts can help with some common problems that you may face regularly. For instance in office workplaces, certain rooms can be very hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.
Ductwork can also fix under-heated rooms, by creating a constant temperature without fluctuating. Windows and doors can also be factors that affect the humidity and temperature, so it’s important to keep this in mind when sealing around these areas.
Finally, ductwork can take away fumes from chemicals and dust particles floating around your workspace. If no ducting is present, these fumes can aggravate asthma, allergies and even damage equipment over time.
