Duct & Hose Design

Duct and Hose Design

 

The dust or other particulate materials from the pickups must be carried to the collector in hoses or ducts.  These can be as small as 1 ¼  inch in diameter (in the case of a hand-held tool) up to 12” in diameter in the case of a medium sized dust collection system of 4000 CFM capacity.  The ducts and hoses can be of many different material, from PVC to galvanized steel to stainless steel, depending upon the materials to be conveyed or the code requirements of the particular industry.

Careful design technique must be employed in the development of the ductwork to prevent leaks and undue loss of pressure and airflow due to poor interconnect and branching and sizing.
