Without corrosion-resistant ducting solutions in place, chemical businesses have the potential to unintendedly host fire and explosions. Of course, this makes onsite facilities extremely hazardous – with the use of solvents, dust and flammable liquids often being the culprit. In these instances, contamination is also a potential risk, which affects production, storage, and cleanroom areas.
Our reliable, chemical extraction solutions have helped many chemical businesses stay safe and fully functional – ensuring a pleasant working environment for your staff.
Systems and ductwork should be designed to ANSI/AIHA Z9.2-2001 standards and maintain negative pressure within all portions of the ductwork inside the building when the system is in operation
Exhaust system ductwork should meet Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association (SMACNA, 1985) standards – depending on the system
Exhaust ductwork should be fire and corrosion resistant and selected based on its resistance to the primary corrosive element
Exhaust system materials should be non-combustible if there is perchloric acid or similar oxidizing agents that pose a fire or explosion hazard are present
Exhaust ductwork joints should be sealed to protect against a chemical attack
We often recommend welded stainless steel type 316L, but it may not be appropriate for all chemicals and corrosives.
Galvanised steel treated inside and out with a 4 ml thick coating of polyvinyl chloride, or a corrosion-resistant epoxy coating, may be an acceptable material for fume exhaust ductwork.
I can say I was very pleased with the installation Airmatic did for us on our odour abatement project. The design of the system quality of ductwork and the installation was first class all delivered on time and on budget.
The Airmatic team excelled in the delivery of our Vapour Extract system. Their stainless steel extract system was expertly manufactured and installed to a high standard
Can I compliment you and your guys for an excellent standard of work, it puts an existing system manufactured by others to shame. Thank you also for your efficiency in delivering as promised, I know where to go for any future requirements
