Spiral Pipe Applications
The versatility of spiral duct has lead to its use in a wide range of commercial and industrial applications:
The primary use of spiral duct in commercial applications is for HVAC. Spiral duct can now be found in numerous commercial applications including:
Clinics and hospitals
Schools and universities
Retail stores and malls
Community and entertainment facilities
Office buildings and warehouses
And many more
Spiral pipe’s ability to handle high positive and negative pressures has led to numerous industrial applications:
Removal of chemical fumes and other environmental toxins
Removal of dust and other airborne particulates
Removal of manufacturing byproducts such as sawdust and wood shavings
Bulk material handling such as loading of grain trucks and hoppers
Spiral Vinyl-Coated Pipe
The chemical inertness of PVC combined with the strength of spiral pipe make vinyl coated duct ideal for chemical fume removal applications and for underground HVAC applications where strength and resistance to corrosive salts and other minerals found in backfill are prerequisites.
Our vinyl-coated spiral pipe is UL listed and manufactured from galvanized steel coated with a polyvinyl chloride material with an outside thickness of 4 mils and inside thickness of 1 mil standard. This is reversible for special purposes. External corrugations are standard for over 14″ diameter for underground applications. Standard gauges are: 4″ to 16″ / 24 gauge, 17″ to 24″ / 22 gauge, 26″ to 48″ / 20 gauge.
Spiral Insulated Pipe
Our dual-wall spiral insulated duct adds both thermal insulating and sound attenuating benefits to any air distribution system. This dual-wall product consists of inner and outer spiral pipes with a layer of glass fiber insulation sandwiched in between, thus reducing noise and conserving energy.
Material Handling and Truck Loading
The ability of spiral pipe to handle high pressures, its efficient airflow characteristics, and its low pressure loss make Spiral pipe ideal for bulk material handling applications. We offer a complete line of trailer loading accessories, including ball joints, diverter valves, quick disconnects, and air actuated gates. See pages 45-49 for components and technical data.
Spiral Manufacturing offers a complete line of seam welded, slip-joint fittings designed especially for use with Spiral pipe. Standard fittings include many types of elbows, crosses, tees, laterals, reducers, and other components fabricated from standard 20 gauge steel (other gauges available).
