When working with equipment that exudes smoke and fumes, it is essential to have an efficient smoke ventilation system. Insufficient smoke ventilation has many hazards including danger to one’s health, damage to valuable equipment, and potential fire hazards. Smoke extraction is critical industries aplenty; namely, industrial kitchens, auto body shops, and factories. Each of these areas are fully capable of generating a great amount of smoke and heat; thankfully, smoke ducts can be incorporated affordably and easily to mitigate this issue as much as possible. At Ducting.com, we know the importance of having the right smoke ducts for your demanding applications so we offer several options to meet smoke extraction requirements.
If your task requires the extraction of high temperature smoke and fumes, we offer several stainless steel smoke extraction ducts. The stainless steel ducts are capable of withstanding temperature highs between 800 and 1650 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition to heat resistance, the stainless steel composition of our SS-Flex 800 and SSTI-Flex 1650 are perfect for chemical applications with corrosive materials. Stainless steel is resistant to harsh gasses and can safely move these fumes. These stainless steel hoses are also our most heat resistant smoke ducts and maintain great durability and crush resistance.
For a more portable option we have several polyester smoke ducts. These light-weight hoses are excellent for a smoke ventilation system that requires a hose be interchangeable between multiple devices. Their compressibility and ability to retract make them versatile products where space is a concern. These polyester hoses offer excellent flexibility without sacrificing their ability to transfer moderate temperature smoke. We inventory these products (Air Ventilator Hose) in large quantities and in sizes from 4” up to 24” ID. The lightweight hose aspect of these ducts further makes them excellent for use in ceilings and on roofs, or in situations where having extensive support beams is not feasible.
We also feature fiberglass air duct hose coated in Neoprene material. These smoke extraction ducts are great mid-cost alternatives to our stainless steel and polyester hoses. Like the stainless steel smoke ducts, the air duct hose coating makes them resistant to chemicals for medium duty applications while also offering the flexibility and kink resistance of our polyester material ducts. These products are perfect for a smoke ventilation system requiring chemical and elevated temperature resistance. These resistance properties are absolutely critical when it comes to smoke duct. Every functional smoke ventilation system is only as effective as the pipes that it is composed of. If even one length of piping is compromised or broken, the whole system can suffer tremendously and experience a precipitous drop in quality. Therefore, it is imperative that all of the smoke ducts in your system be protected from the damaging effects of heat and chemicals.
If left unchecked, smoke can be an inconvenient and potentially dangerous substance in any environment. Whether you are generating smoke in a heating system, auto body shop, or kitchen, it is critical to incorporate the right kinds of smoke ducts to maintain a safe and comfortable area. With our wide selection of smoke ducts, you will find the right product for the job. Whether you need a tool that is light-weight and portable, resistant to extreme temperatures, or a medium-duty chemical duct, we have the product right for you!
