Straight Pipes

CP Metal Fabrication – Professional Light Ducting Services


Straight pipes, commonly known as straight ducts, are an integral component in the configuration of fume and dust light ducting systems. Their main function is to facilitate the smooth and efficient transportation of bdust and fumes within a building. This is vital to ensure that a healthy environment is maintained throughout the premises. In the context of air conditioning systems, the role and utilisation of straight pipes are pivotal for several reasons, influencing the system's overall performance and efficiency.

Efficiency of Air Flow for Fume and Dust Ducting

Straight pipes are favoured in ductwork design for their direct approach to guiding air from one point to another. This straightforward path is the most efficient way to transport air, minimising turbulence and resistance, which can otherwise lead to energy losses. By reducing the number of bends and turns, straight ducts help in maintaining a steady air pressure and flow rate, which is crucial for the fume and dust ducting system to operate effectively and efficiently.

Simplified Installation and Maintenance

The installation of straight ducts is generally less complicated compared to more complex systems. They require fewer custom fittings and supports, which simplifies the construction and installation process. This not only makes it easier for technicians to install and maintain but also reduces the overall time and labour costs associated with the ductwork. For maintenance, straight ducts are easier to clean and inspect, ensuring that the system remains efficient and hygienic over its lifespan.

Noise Reduction and Cost-Effectiveness

Every bend or turn in a ducting system can increase noise levels due to air turbulence and vibration. Straight pipes, with their uncomplicated design, tend to generate less noise, contributing to a quieter and more comfortable indoor environment. Moreover, the simplicity of straight ducts often translates into cost savings. They typically involve less material waste and require a shorter installation time, making them a cost-effective choice for both new installations and upgrades.

Material Choices and Durability

In Australia, straight ducts are made from a variety of materials, each offering different benefits. Common materials include galvanised steel, aluminium, and flexible plastics. Galvanised steel is renowned for its strength and durability, making it a popular choice for long-term applications. Aluminium, being lightweight and resistant to corrosion, offers ease in handling and longevity. The choice of material affects the duct's performance, longevity, and suitability for different environmental conditions and building types.
