CLAMP TOGETHER DUCTING/QUICK CLAMP DUCTING
Clamp together ducting is applicable in virtually any dust collection system from wood to paper to chemical. And it is also used in fume and oil mist collection. Even abrasive applications can be accommodated. The standard KB Clamp Together/Quick Clamp Duct branches and fittings are fabricated from 18-gauge material as a standard and can be fabricated in up to 10-gauge. Likewise, elbows and duct can also be fabricated in 10-gauge for use in such applications as sand, coal or other abrasive applications.
A wide variety of gasket materials, coupled with stainless steel material makes it possible for our Clamp Together ducting to address even the harshest applications. The standard n-butyl rubber gasket is great for 95% of all applications, but the gasket is also available in FDA silicon which is great for food AND hi-temp applications. Viton and Gore-Tex gasket materials address the balance of applications where standard rubbers will be ‘eaten’ away.
As with any product, clamp-together ducting has its limitations and should not be used on heavy concentrations of liquid, or for conveyance of dust under positive pressures. Such applications should use flanged duct with a gasket (also available from KB Duct).
The Forever Clamp for Clamp Together Ducting
The heart of their clamp-together ducting system is our unique Forever Clamp. This is the easiest-to-install and most efficient quick clamp joining method ever developed for lighter weight systems. When joining ducting parts just as elbows, sleeves, branches, cutoffs or almost any related part, nothing works as well as KB Duct’s Forever Clamp.
KB Duct provides duct with and without flanges (angle rings) in black iron, galvanized or SS and with or without holes. With their three production locations across the country, they can manufacture flanged duct from 3” all the way up to the size you could drive a truck through. KB Duct can manufacture lighter gauges to full welded product in heavy gauge (even up to 1/4″)- all depending upon the application.

Explosion Insolation Valve
When a fire and / or explosion takes place in a baghouse or filtration system burning fuel and explosive force rapidly expands and will enter the building through the suction side duct system.
The installation of a KB EIV in the suction side ductwork will prevent an explosive force from entering a building or workspace. A KB FireBreak Shutter System combined with the KB Explosion Isolation Valve is recommended for added protection. Often, a fire is present in a bag house and no explosion takes place. The KB FireBreak Shutter System will sense a rise in temperature and isolate the building from the hazard. A KB High Speed Abort Gate is recommended when filtered air is returned to a building. It is another Important Safety Component that is designed to isolate a hazard at the source. The KB HSAG offers Triple Protection with activation by (1) Overpressure without electronic signal, (2) Signal from a Spark Detection System and (3) Signal from a heat sensor that detects a rapid rise of temperature in the clean side duct system.
