Description

Kinetics KINFLEX™ flexible ductwork connections allow movement while preventing additional stresses on equipment and duct systems. KINFLEX features fully welded match drilled carbon steel flanges equipped with backing bars fastened in place with zinc plated hardward, flow liner (if supplied), and EPDM flex membrane material. Acoustically rated design is available with an absorptive acoustic fill and EPDM outer barrier.

Applications

  • Fan Inlets & Outlets
  • Pressure Blower Inlets & Outlets
  • Baghouse Inlets & Outlets
  • Scrubber Inlets & Outlets
  • Dryer Outlets
  • Stack Inlets
  • Gas Turbine Intake Systems
  • Ventilation and Process Ductwork

EPDM — UV Resistant

1/8" thick layered EPDM flex membrane with internal nylon scrim for superior tear strength. Resistant to ozone and UV exposure and cold cracking makes it ideal for outdoor use.

No Flow Liner

Good for airstream flows up to 6,000 FPM and pressure from -30" WG to +120" WG.
