One common application of round ductwork is as a transfer conduit for dehumidifiers. Critically important appliances, dehumidifier machines are important for removing excess moisture from the air in a room. There are numerous benefits to this, such as increased comfort levels, less health risk from dust and mold, and preventing structural damage to a building. Dehumidifiers (and, of course, the accompanying dehumidifier ducts) are, as one example, often utilized in hockey rinks to maintain ambient temperature and reduce undue melting of the ice. Adding humidity control venting adds a large number of benefits to a dehumidifier system. An efficient venting system allows you to take ambient air from outside the room and dehumidify larger inside spaces. All of this is done with air ducts. Also, the use of a flexible duct hose can give you the ability to place the machine in an out of sight location, keeping the flexible piping outdoors and the indoors visually appealing. At Ducting.com, we offer and inventory a large selection of dehumidifier ducts, made from PVC or neoprene coated fabrics, in 4” to 60” inch ID, and in black, yellow, white or custom colors.
For jobs that require work within tight spaces, we offer a large selection of lightweight fabric dehumidifier ducts. Highly compressible, PVC dehumidifier ducts are one of the most cost-effective products for fulfilling your ducting hose ventilation needs. Generally sold in 12 or 25foot lengths, the high flexibility of this flexible duct is such that is can easily be fitted into areas of all dimensions. The lightweight nature of these air ducts provides high compression and easy movement, allowing you to place the flexible piping in the best positions for optimal venting and dehumidifying.
If you plan on maneuvering your flexible duct hoses around abrasive materials or floor surfaces we offer external wear strips that provide extra protection to your air ducts. The wear-strip will add life by protecting the exterior of the hose from abrasion. Because of their light weight and ease-of-installation most dehumidifier ducts can be easily accessed and installed, not to mention repaired. This makes them an invaluable cost-effective material that is easily utilized by professionals and laypersons both. Additionally, as a product themselves, dehumidifiers are often prized by commercial and residential spaces because of their ability to cool rooms without requiring the –oftentimes- exorbitant costs of other cooling devices.
Different coating materials for fabric dehumidifier hose are available which offer various benefits. We offer air ducts that are coated in neoprene material to provide extra durability and temperature resistance. Extra neoprene is a synthetic rubber that is known for its strong chemical stability and its ability to maintain flexibility in a large temperature range, making this a great option if you’re going to use dehumidifier ducts in high or low temperature environments. Specifically, neoprene hoses can often possess a temperature resistance of up to 250 degree Fahrenheit, an admirable quality to have in dehumidifier ducts that works to prevent both overheating and potentially hazardous incidences of fire.
PVC coated flexible duct hoses are another more cost efficient option available for work that does not involve higher temperatures. As PVC flexible duct is generally not quite as temperature resistant as neoprene (only resistant up to about 160 degree Fahrenheit), it is better suited to being utilized in environments where heat resistance is less necessary (such as computer server rooms or kitchen freezer facilities).
It might not be apparent at first, but ducting accessories can be just as important to the successful operation of dehumidifier ducts ad the ducting hose itself. Because dehumidifier machines are designed to work in a variety of different environments, we offer a wide variety of hose-ends and hose-cuffs for our flexible ducts that give you the ability to connect the hose to an assortment of pipe. Cuff reducers and enlargers are popular products for affixing lengths of flexible duct hoses whose ends do not quite match up with that of the other dehumidifier ducts that they need to be attached to. This wide selection allows you to find just the right hose for the requirements of your job. Take a look at our large online category of dehumidifier hose ducts and find the right option for you.
